The cost of stepping outside the norm

Stepping outside the norm to do what is right for you can be terrifying for multiple reasons. You are stepping into untouched land (at least for you) and don’t know how things will turn out. That’s terrifying enough, but the last +10 years I have experienced that there are different “costs” to stepping outside the norm. I have found different ways … Continue reading

From digital nomad to parent

From digital nomad to becoming a parent

In the fall of 2017, while living 6 months in the French alps (where a new day meant a new hike), we found out that my better half was pregnant. In the midst of all the normal feelings that soon-to-be first time parents experience of insane love, excitement, being nervous, doubting if you are ready, we also knew that a … Continue reading

Nomad Homeowner

Nomad Homeowner – Why buy property when you’re a minimalist traveler?

Last year my girlfriend and I bought a new apartment in Copenhagen, Denmark, and a few weeks ago we moved in. After 5 years of living abroad most of the time and mostly moving a lot around, with very few bags and stuff, always renting short term, it can seem like a big shift in lifestyle. Last week we had a … Continue reading

Be to complex to categorize

Being too complex to categorize

“So what do you wanna be when you grow up?” I’m 31, but often still think about that question. We humans really, really like to categorize things, put stuff and people in boxes and to do stuff that is well-defined. It makes a lot of sense, because it’s easier. When we do stuff that is categorized (“I’m a doctor”) and well-defined … Continue reading

The price of anything is the amount of life you pay for it

The price of anything is the amount of life you pay for it

This title is actually a quote by Henry David Thoreau. While it might seem simple when reading the title, most people act like it’s not the case. Most people compare a price of a given product or service to related products or services. It’s normal to take a buying decision only based on what you think it’s worth in money. … Continue reading

Letter

A letter to the 80-year-old me

I love the idea of writing a letter to yourself when you were 20 years old. I think it’s a great way to reflect. But it seems more important how I live the rest of my life and a little less important what I’ve already done. Being 30 years old, I’m thinking more and more about how it will be … Continue reading

Freedom

No commute, no meetings, no phone, and no alarm clock

Your happiness will increase more by removing negative elements, than adding positive elements. With this in mind, I’ve been trying to remove elements from my life that I felt had a negative impact. Continue reading

Minimalism

Becoming a minimalist – I’m happier with just one backpack

Some years ago, living in a small 50 sqmapartment (approx 500 sqft)  in Denmark, I was growing increasingly tired of the stuff my girlfriend and I owned. I was tired of spending time on a lot of stuff when I just felt that I was using – and getting value – from a small part of it. I found it … Continue reading
