I have less than 2 weeks back in Denmark and it means I really have to finish all my practical stuff that have been in a “I got plenty of time” category for a long time. Now Im suddenly like “damn! I am running out of time! Panic!”.
I needed to terminate many of my subscriptions like “danmark” insurance, fitness membership and my home insurance. Then I have packed my things things in boxes and made decisions like what to bring and what to leave. It´s still in a process. I have ordered an extra credit card, bought Chilean pesos but still need to buy some things like a 33L backpacker.
I still haven’t decided about which company I will choose as my travel insurance. I have used a lot of time reading recommendations on Trustpilot and reading about terms and conditions. But I really need to fix this problem very soon!
The dream of living and working in another country
After 2 times living in Mexico for 6 months my dream of returning and live there. 6 months is not enough to get deep down into a new country and culture. Its too superficial. I needed more time! At least some years. I had the idea of doing it after ending my Master´s programme and almost did it. I have a friend in Mexico and we talked about starting a business together. But then I got the first job I applied for and yeah.. then life happened! I decided to give it a try as consultant in a big Danish company. But the dream was still alive and when I wasn’t happy at my job I regretted sometimes that I choose A instead of B. I had this question in my head “what if”..
Then I decided to go to Mexico again in 2015 and try my luck. This was my time to fulfill my dream! I actually had some job interviews in Mexico city. But again life wanted something else with me and I ended back home 7 weeks later.
But the dream was still alive! After 1 month in Colombia I felt so much in love with the city Medellín that after some considerations I decided to move to Colombia instead. I took contact with an old friend who lived in Colombia and she was willing to help me finding a job. I talked to Victor about it which I still had contact with after my travel (I met him during my Colombia travel) and he asked me if I instead wanted to go to Chile and give what we had a chance. I don´t know Chile, I´ve never been there. And everything with Victor was new. But I decided that I wanted to listen to my heart. Maybe people would think this was a crazy decision but I didn’t care. I felt we had something powerful and I wanted to invest in it. So not only am I following a longtime dream, but I realize it with my big love that just happened to live at the end of the world. It isn’t Mexico, and it isn’t Colombia. But I trust the process and accept that sometimes life sometimes have other plans with you.
So was I escaping from Denmark?
I really look forward finally going to Chile – mostly to see Victor again. But I will miss my life here in Denmark; my friends, family, the salsa environment, the city. It´s very important for me to emphasise that I am not escaping from my life here. I love my life in Denmark. This time I am actually leaving Denmark because of Victor.
On top of that it seems like I am following my dream once again and I am pretty excited to see what life has planned for not only me but us 🙂
