For as long as i can remember, one of my biggest dreams was to live abroad at least once in my life. At the age of 25, I’ve managed to live away from the comfort of my little hometown in Denmark and both study abroad in the US, intern in Hong Kong and finally move in with my French boyfriend in Amsterdam, where I’ve been living and working for 9 months now. I guess there’s no doubt that I’m a big promoter of living abroad and I try to take any chance I can to persuade people to try it at least once in their life. If you’re still wondering whether moving abroad, even for a short period of time, is something for you, just keep reading.
It’s no secret that I’m absolutely in love with China. My first time visiting the dragon country was in 2014, when I was one of the selected student to receive a scholarship to go to summer school in Beijing and Xi’an. Having studied Chinese language and culture for about 1 ½ years at the time, I was super stoked to get to experience this crazy country in person and get to use all the thing I’d learned with “real” Chinese people. But once I was there, it honestly took me a few days to actually start enjoying my first encounter withChina. Before going I simply assumed that because I had studied the language and the culture for more than a year, I would be prepared for when I would get to use all those things I had learned. But oh was I wrong. China is so unlike any other place in the world, and no matter how prepared you think you are, it will always take you by surprise. Nonetheless, I’ve gathered a few of my top tips for those of you who are considering visiting the crazy dragon country for the first time.
10 favorite Instagrammers that I you should be following, and it really seemed like you guys loved it! So, to celebrate International Women's Day today, I thought I would share with you 8 badass female Instagrammers which without doubt will make you want to go explore the world.
In March last year I spent 3 weeks visiting my best friend in Boston. During that time I obviously explored pretty much every place there is in the city, but I also did some trips to New York, New Hampshire, and Salem. The last place is famous for its witch trials during Colonial America, and even though the city is mostly popular during Halloween, it still ended up being my favorite thing to visit during my time in the US last year.
Despite me having lived in Denmark pretty much all of my life, I really haven’t written that many posts about places to see and things to do if you’re visiting. And that is actually quite a shame, since it’s such an awesome country, and the rest of the world also seems to have noticed that now. So here’s my first actual guide to Denmark and my top 10 of things you have to do if you visit our beautiful capital for the first time.
Although February and winter is one of my favorite times of the year, it’s still hard not to daydream about sunny paradise islands with golden beaches. For this Wanderlust Wednesday I’m sharing 6 destinations where I wouldn’t mind spending the whole day soaking up the sun on a sandy beach or by the pool.
The Tanzanian islands is an amazing tropical paradise, which is a favorite of many European countries. The weather here is incredibly reliable and the vibe is super exotic and relaxed.
Today's Valentine’s Day and whether you’re single or not, it’s hard not to get into the spirit of love with all the hearts in the stores, valentine’s makeup looks on youtube and gift guides all over blog land. So why not top it off with a post on the most romantic places to spend Valentine’s Day?
Winter is upon us! And whether you’re living somewhere snowy and mountainous or somewhere as flat and gray as Amsterdam, it might soon be time for you to hit the slopes. As we all know, the crispy winter cold ain’t really the best for our skin. It gets dry, irritated and super sensitive. But there’s hope ahead! With the right products in your toiletbag you might actually return from your skiing trip without the chapped lips and only with the glow that your skin gets from being outside.
As you already know, in November I spent a couple of days visiting Morocco with 9 other bloggers. Having been back in Denmark for a while now, I feel like I’ve had enough time to really absorb all the experiences and impressions for my to put everything into words. First of all, I would like to mention that it has taken me loads of consideration to actually publish this post. Some of you might consider me as a bitch after reading this, but hopefully many of you will actually relate to what I have to say.
One of the highlights of our trip to Brussels last year has to be our hunt for the comic strip murals. Belgium is known for their chocolate, their fries, their beer, the UN and the Grand Place, but honestly the one thing that makes Brussels stand out from all the other European capitals, has to be its comic strip herritage, and all over town you'll find murals that serve as a tribute to its world famous artists and authors. Sometimes the murals are very obvious, while other times they'll be like a hidden secret, which brings a very special character to the city. We cannot recommend enough that you take a tour of the city and try to spot at many as possible!
It's February 3rd and that calls for yet another monthly roundup of my time in Amsterdam. Last month I decided to skip the roundup for the sixth month in Amsterdam, since it collided with the yearly roundups, which basically covered everything that there was to say. So here's what I've been up to in month 7:
I'm Cammi - a 20-something Danish girl living in Amsterdam. I'm passionate about finding new and unique ways to explore our beautiful world, and have a makeup collection bigger than I'd like to admit.
