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?
