I’m starting a travel blog!
I’m in the process of starting a travel blog. I know that there are a lot of great travel blogs out there. I just hope there’s room for me too. I’ve been thinking about this for quite some time now. What’s holding me back? My over-thinking of course. Am I good enough? Will I write interesting posts? Am I too plain? Or simply just boring? I guess I won’t find out unless I try.
As a Norwegian, I’m used to thinking that I’m not good enough. That when there’s someone better than me out there, why should I even try to raise my voice? It’s stupid, I know. Luckily, I’ve decided to just go for it. To start a journey and see where it takes me.
Who am I? I’m 35 years of age, I live in beautiful Norway, and I just love to travel. I’ve worked in the travel industry for over 9 years now. I’ve been lucky enough to travel a bit through work, and started to travel more leisurely when I met my boyfriend 3 years ago. I wish that I was more adventurous when I was younger. That I understood that traveling was an investment. It’s of course expensive to travel, but when you think about what you get out of it, it’s actually not that expensive. What else do you purchase in life that will give you as much as traveling does? I just wish that more people would travel. It’s not the same to watch the world go by on television or internet from the comfort of your couch. Just go out there. Experience the world. Get to know people. It’s easy to sit at home and criticize everyone that doesn’t think as you do, that looks different or that lives differently than you do. But you don’t know their story. You don’t know how they’ve lived, what they’ve experienced. Think how much you’ll learn about yourself and your own life when you learn more about how the world really works.

I’ll write about my travel experiences, both new and old. I’ll write “how to’s” and travel tips, travel guides and top things to do in different cities. I’ll dedicate blog posts to my favorite photos, favorite cities and favorite views. I’ll of course dedicate a few blog posts to the beautiful Norwegian scenery as well! Hopefully I’ll be able to inspire a few of you to travel more. I always travel on a budget, and I always plan my trips well. Hopefully my structured way of traveling will give a few of you some tips. I don’t travel to obscure destinations (at least not yet), so I guess I’m a bit “mainstream” when it comes to my destination choices. I don’t have children yet, so I guess my intended readers will be couples, friends or solo travelers. I hope to include a few guest posts as well.
I hope a few of you want to join me on my travel blog yourney.
