I’m a Noruban-American (Norwegian father, Cuban mother, grew up in America) who finally took the plunge and moved to the fatherland, Norway.

I find lack of money or time to be poor excuses for staying home and missing out on what the world has to offer. Where there is a will, there is a way.

I’m an explorer and an expat. I will not be satisfied with less than the entire world.

I have a new public Instagram account also called NaessessaryEscape. Please feel free to follow me as I will post a lot of pictures and videos there! 🙂

I am currently traveling around the Southern Hemisphere until next Spring and have now surpassed the 50 countries visited mark!
