I’m a 27 year old Michigan girl who decided to take a leap of faith and move across the world to pursue my passions, fulfil my wanderlust and give the digital nomad lifestyle a try.
It wasn’t an easy decision but it was the right one.
When I realized I had fallen into a comfort zone and was no longer actively chasing after my professional, personal and spiritual goals like I should, I decided to quit my 9-5 and book a one way ticket to Bali. The distracted, stressed out and overcommitted lifestyle I was leading was getting in the way of my dreams more than it was helping them so I knew I needed to shake things up and reprioritize my life.
I didn’t move to escape my life in Michigan, I love my life there. I love my home, my family and my friends. Leaving a place and people I love so much was the hardest thing about making this decision. However, I moved to get inspired again, to re-ignite my true passions and to really give myself the chance to pursue a new career path that I couldn’t and wouldn’t make time for if I was at home in my comfort zone.
Whether this ends up leading me find a career path I’m truly passionate about or simply helps me get my priorities straight and become more grounded in my faith. I’m all in and I’m excited to take y’all with me on this exciting and life changing adventure!
What does Eventyr mean?
As you might have guessed from the similarities in the words, “Eventyr” is a Norwegian and Danish word with a similar meaning to the English word “Adventure”.

Whether you’re considering solo travel, a career change or just hoping to find inspiration to do something a little out of your comfort zone, I hope to help motivate and inspire you to take the next step.
There’s no way I could write an About Me section without thanking the amazing people who have supported, inspired and encouraged me.
When I came up with this idea I expected people to laugh at me, call me naive, tell me to be more practical etc.. and yet I was met with smiles, affirmations and a ridiculous amount of praise and encouragement. So if this goes wrong I blame my family and friends for letting me think this is a good idea of course. It’s all their fault.
But seriously, this has been far from an easy road leading to making this happen. From my former coworkers to my family and friends, I would not and could not have had the courage to follow my dreams without the endless patience, support and prayers from the home team and for that I am eternally grateful.
