About me

Have you ever wondered what it is like to live abroad? Here’s my story after having lived in four countries

Hi!

Thank you for visiting Becci Abroad! You properly dropped over to the “about me”-part to figure out a bit more about me… Sooo, let’s get you some of that information:

I used to have one of those jobs that are on all the list of the best jobs for travelers. That was long before I even started to think about making a travel blog.

But being a hostel receptionist is not so glamorous after all, and having to clean up after drunk Australians is really not that fun… Nevertheless, I learned a lot, and definitely also had a good time. Apparently, so good a time that I ended up doing it for almost 4 years.

It bought me both to get to know my own city, Copenhagen, a lot better (I was that crazy receptionist with all the stories about the different places, maybe you met me during your visit to Copenhagen?). And then to Spain where I lived for almost two years in the beautiful yet small city of Granada.

In the end, I was quite tired of Spainards asking whether I was German (no offense German but I’m NOT German – would you like to be called Danish? No, right?) or an Erasmus student… That “no, no I’m working” was usually followed by a “Working? How can you work when our country is in an economic crisis?”.

Anyway, when I went home to Denmark, one of my good friends’ mother asked me if I would ever settle down in Denmark. “Yeah, maybe I will now”, I remember laughing. I had to start university, and get clever and all that…

That lasted 6 months, then I had rented my flat and was boarding a flight to Cuba.

I ended up saying in Cuba for a total of 4 months while studying Spanish as a foreign language at the University of Havana.

After that, I managed to live two years in Scandinavia doing my degree in Business administration and Spanish at Copenhagen Business School.

I lasted two years in Scandinavia… Then I went on exchange to Buenos Aires… I was supposed to leave Buenos Aires after half a year but ended up staying!

I simply fell in love with Buenos Aires, its people and its speed of life; a mix of stressed Europeans and relaxed Latinos.

Be sure to use these 5 phrases when visiting Buenos Aires, and you will sound just like a local porteño!

The whole travel bug-thing, probably all went “wrong” the day my mum boarded a flight to Thailand with me before I even had turned two years old… After that, it never really stopped.

She would take me places as a kid, and shortly after I turned 18, I started traveling on my own. Well, I don’t complain!

But honestly, I’m not dreaming about a career in tourism or becoming a big travel blogger who travels the world non-stop. I like combining the peace and space of having a home and daily routines with traveling. Without a doubt I prefer to travel long-term get under the skin of the places I visit.

I write and share my stories when I feel like I have something to share. If I don’t feel like I have something special to share, I don’t write. I don’t like selfies, and even though I know they create the most likes, you will hardly find me taking them or sharing them.
