I’m a 30-year-old editor and linguist, Dane living in Singapore and very into reading, barre training and exploring concrete as well as verdant jungles. And aesthetically pleasing as well as tasty food. Sipping sour cocktails and red wine with friends. Hanging out in boutique hotel lobbies. Photography. Creative events. And morning light, morning runs, morning stretches; many things to do with mornings. Eh, and lots more, which I happily document here every Sunday night.
After five years of studying in Copenhagen followed by five years of working in London, without ever having left those two cities for longer periods than 2-3 weeks at a time (except for a few summer months of cycling and partying through Berlin), all holidays spent in Europe and North America (except for two trips to Bahrain in 2015), I found it was high time for me to venture further off.
As the first posts will show, my first long-haul flight to anywhere but the US took me to Singapore and Ho Chi Minh City in November 2015, a trip that piqued my interest in the tropics. In May 2016 I moved to Singapore, to work from there and to hopefully use it as a starting point for exploring Southeast Asia – from the super structured Lion City to the super chaotic Saigon, with some spectacular landscapes thrown in the mix – and the world beyond that.
The posts between the initial trip and the eventual move focus on my relationship with my various European homes (in Denmark, Spain and London), while everything after the relocation is published as Sunday posts featuring the non-work related highlights and notable aspects of the week gone by, things for which I’m grateful, allowing me to reflect on them and appreciate them a little bit extra while piecing together the story and outlook of one among hundreds of thousands of expats.
Thanks for stopping by!
