I am a mother of two wonderful kids, living with my family in Copenhagen, Denmark. I am crazy about traveling, my small family, our friends, music played on vinyl, coffee made on our espresso machine; even consumer behavior, strategy and market research (but that’s my professional hobby).
I have always travelled a lot, and when I was 16 I left my family behind and went out on myself for the first time. I went to Tennessee in the States, and came back a year later. Full of experiences, newly graduated from high school, and with a new family. My bff Terah and her family became my American family. So even though I went back to Denmark, my heart never left Tennessee!
Since then I have taken many trips across the borders of Denmark, and travelling will always be my passion. I have a mission of visiting all countries in the world – before leaving on this trip I’m at 54 countries, and I will add 4 more during our travels (Fiji, Tonga, Samoa and Australia are all new to me).
My biggest fear in life is to lose my courage. Lose my courage to live life to the fullest, to continuously seek new experiences, to break habits, and to travel. So when deciding to have children, my boyfriend and I promised each other that we would keep on traveling. We would not listen to all those who are too afraid, too lazy or too comfortable at home. We would stay true to ourselves. And here we are almost 3 years down the road and have never lost ourselves when becoming a family.
In August 2014 we were blessed with an amazing little girl, and then in February 2017 we got a little lovely son as well. The name GoCargus is a tribute to my two kids – Carla and Gustav.
So when we started talking about having a second child, we also started planning a long trip in our heads. This trip is now being lived out – Carpe Diem!
