As a junior digital-nomad I am always in amazing locations, sitting on warm beaches with my laptop on my lap. Sipping from a cocktail (alcohol-free, it’s during work), and never being stressed. But now here’s the actual summary from the past few months:
Where to start…? Oh yeah the last real adventure I talked about was the Hike in Jotunheimen, Norway. Well quite some things happened and I’ll try to make a bit of a summary for you.
Norway, The Finale
Right after leaving Jotunheimen, I decided to go to the Jostedalsbreen, a glacier with a humbling size of 487 km² (Here’s how much that is in square miles). Right after that I moved on to see the Geiranger Fjord but that became a small detour (again).
When that detour was over I went to see the Geiranger Fjord for real, but not without meeting my parents on the way there. By accident. Okay, I knew they were in the area, but we planned to meet up a few days later at their hotel which was a 3 hour drive from the place we met.
So I kept moving on to Geiranger and the Trollstigen right after that. Then the weather started to turn and I felt like the time had come where I should head back south. So I did just that, but not without first claiming an entire lake in Sweden for myself for the last week.
Netherlands – Just kidding, Finland
I then drove in mostly one go to the Netherlands, but not for long because I would fly to Finland the next week where my best friend’s newborn son would officially get his name announced. That’s a Finnish custom which I’d never heard about and I think it’s quite cool to get to know a child before you bless (or curse) them with a certain name. Why fly there? Well… Economics… It’s much cheaper to drive back and fly there than it would be to drive (and ferry) to Finland.
After returning I’d be both enjoying the very warm summer days in my home country and I’d also be sort of putting off to find a first customer for my freelancing career. Which, after not too long, I did find! So, from October to April I’m busy working for my first customer! The first month-ish I’m on-site and after that I’m going to Southern Europe! That’ll be early December, finally I can go again!!!
In the meanwhile i’m still doing quite some hiking trips within the Netherlands, mostly on the Veluwe nature area. I’ve already hiked a couple hundred kilometers of the 375km long Veluwe Zwerfpad!
And after April?
That’s a VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY exciting story for another time!
