Posts about my thoughts and experience from living abroad
It’s so easy to get caught up in routine. We just keep going at an unbelievable rate and work to check off the accomplishments of life on our list. You don’t have to travel far to have an adventure and make life more interesting.
In 2008, I embarked on an adventure that I never knew would impact my life. University was over. The recession was beginning. And my mind was in the clouds.
Moving abroad sounds like a fairy tale. Everything will be new; culture, currency, friends, language, environment. Your friends and family will be jealous because they never have had the opportunity to travel as much, or even leave the country, let alone live somewhere culturally different. You will be a pioneer.
The place where I have felt the most free, the most beautiful, and beyond all, completely full of life has been my old “home” of Mykonos, Greece. While moving to Sweden has been quite a big difference not only weather wise, but culturally for me, I try my best to bring flavor of Mykonos style to my personal surroundings.
