Which journey did I like most?
If I don’t include the countries I drove through with my parents when I was a little girl, I have visited 22 countries so far. That sounds like a lot but compared to the average digital nomad, I am just an amateur. Nevertheless, I’ve been lucky enough to be able to tick off a lot […]
