Here’s a bit about me!

My name is Torben, classic Danish name if you were wondering, it’s actually derived from Thor, you know, the God of thunder! 

I was born and raised in a small town in Denmark, some 80km (50 miles) south of Copenhagen!

In 2009 I decided it was time to spread my wings and leave the nest, so I set sail for England and settled in London. I stayed the following 4 years, what a great city, I loved every minute!

From there I moved to Barcelona, where I currently reside.
I absolutely love the city of Barcelona and actually just came on vacation but decided to never leave! After only a few months in this glorious city I was lucky enough to meet my wife to be!

If you want to know more, don’t hesitate to ask!

    Denmark is a lovely country. Why would you ever leave? 🙂
    I visited it back in 2015 and I loved it a lot. I only saw Copenhagen but it was really nice and the people were so friendly and everyone spoke English, which was fantastic.

      haha… You got a good point there May!
      It is a really great country but I like a bit warmer climate tbh 🙂
      But Copenhagen in the summer I do really love!

    I really love your writing Torben as I also mentioned in your blog posts but if you don’t mind, can I ask you how many countries you have traveled to?
    Based on your IG content it looks like a lot. I personally haven’t been to Europe but if I go, Barcelona would for sure be top of the list.
    Enjoy your travels. Can’t wait to read more.
    Love Rachel

      I would have to count it. Actually not sure. But I might update my profile with it later.
      Just me guessing but would think around 30-35 or so. So I haven’t been everywhere but it’s definitely on my list! 🙂
      Of course as I live here in Spain, I travel a lot to European destinations and have visited most countries here and many of them a lot of times.
      I can indeed highly recommend Barcelona but Italy and Greece is also two of my favourite countries in Europe and so worth a visit!
      Thanks Rachel!
      More to come soon!
