Hi, I’m Bjorn. Thanks for checking out my About page. I’m originally Swedish but I’m a bit of a mutt since I’ve lived in several different countries and cultures and consider each of them “home”. Hence the name of the blog…
In November, 2012, my wife Jammie and I quit our jobs in Northern California to travel the world, do some good and blog. Not everyone identifies with how we were feeling before we quit our jobs but if you found this blog and are reading this, maybe you do. Put simply, we wanted more out of life. Not necessarily more money or stuff but more adventure, more meaning and more fulfillment.
We decided that the best way for us to find this and to truly live a richer life was to go on a one-year trip around the world. So I quit my position as a fundraiser for a hospital and she quit her job as a journalist. We sold or gave away most of our stuff and then we hopped on a plane.
Here’s our 2013 itinerary:
Bangkok, Thailand: January – March
Buenos Aires, Argentina: April – June
Berlin, Germany: July – September
Bombay (Mumbai), India: October – December
In each of these cities we will be volunteering for charities and non profits that we feel are making a difference in a unique, tangible way.
Right now we are in Buenos Aires. We are incredibly excited about our new life. And we are so grateful to be able to share it with you.
