Welcome to Sunshine Seeker Travel!
First of all, thank you for visiting my blog! I guess you ended up here because you are researching for a trip? Or do you feel like you’re stuck in a rut and just needed some inspiration? Do you want to change your entire life? Or do you simply want to maximize your time off work and travel a bit more? Whatever the reason might be, I’m here to make sure you have the best possible travel experience!
Hi, I’m Charlotte, a twenty-something girl from Norway with a creative mind and restless feet. I follow my dream of traveling the world, despite being terrified of flying and anxious about.. let’s see… almost everything. So I bet you can overcome your fears too!
I’m the happiest while sipping on a coconut in the tropics, surrounded by palm trees, hibiscus flowers and turquoise water. Hence the name of the blog. Throw in a dog and some dolphins, and I’m on cloud nine.
And food of course, I’m a huge foodie. I think about food probably as often as guys think about… you know what. Sometimes I even book an entire trip around the restaurants I want to try. I know, I’m slightly weird. And to make it even weirder, I can’t stand coffee. I am however obsessed with Pepsi Max and lemon iced tea.
As I mentioned in this post, travel has always been in my blood. When I was younger I used to put together booklets of different destinations, trying to convince my parents to take me there. To make myself study harder I cut out pictures of exotic places and put them in my textbooks. Yes, this was long before Pinterest so I actually had to do it the old-fashioned way, print, cut and glue.
I also used to say no to anything that seemed a bit intimidating. And then I got super angry with myself afterward because I didn’t do it and let the chance pass by. But as I got older I realized that things usually aren’t as scary as they seem. It’s all about taking those first few steps outside your comfort zone, then the rest will fall into place.
One day in the bathroom of my high school, after an exam gone wrong, I decided that it was time to go see the world. My first 30 item bucket list was born that evening, and six months later I headed out on a 3-month long adventure with my boyfriend. I was hooked! On both my bf and travel!
Fast forward 7 years, 2 degrees (marketing & graphic design) and 23 countries later (including 8 trips to Indonesia and 15 to Poland), I’ve completed 27 of the items on my original bucket list. But somehow it just keeps on growing, so I do my best to keep up.
I decided to start Sunshine Seeker so that I would push myself to do things I normally wouldn’t have. But I also wanted it to be a source of travel inspiration and information I couldn’t find elsewhere. Basically, I want to help and inspire you to travel more!
