Turtle Time is … Mette, Morten and our campervan Turtle. We live in Turtle all year and spend our time in Denmark as well as out and about in Europe. Join our search for inspiring people, unknown places and new experiences on how to live life. You can follow us in English on Instagram, right here on our website and in our acclaimed presentations. Where do you think we should go next?
How often haven’t I heard “Well, it’s right now you should do it” when I tell someone that Morten and I have quit our jobs and housing to move into a camper and travel around the world..?
Meaning: “Cause once you’ve settled down, bought a house and have children, you can’t just travel like that.”
It’s been MANY times I’ve heard that – so many times I can’t count it anymore, it’s certainly one of the standard comments when we tell about our lifestyle.
WARNING: If you dream about dropping jobs and housing in your homecountry to travel around the world, do not read this article!
We have just had the first two months as full-time travelers in our little rolling camper home, and we have almost had the worst possible start of our trip: Stress, an unfair boss, loosing our job, infinite bureaucratic challenges with, among other things, tax, bank and insurance, disagreements between the two of us, a constipation, engine problems, bad weather, a lot of crying and frustration – and then last week … burglary in Turtle!
Not exactly something to write home about …
