Or how many hours you would have to put in?? Who cares what you have to do, if it means that you can live your dream ! ..AND at the same time have FUN, get new friends, develop yourself, travel, start to live life on your terms and spend more time on what’s important for YOU!

You have to have 50% of the people against you, to have 50% of the people with you.
It’s a good reminder…
Okeeei – don’t know how many times I’ve got this question recently. The last year, I’ve ended up “living” in Southeast Asia for over 6 months in total (..still counting!), in 6 different countries, (going to be 7 next wednesday ;)) AND I LOVE IT. And for all of you who’s asking WHY? Here you go!
13 reasons I keep hanging around this Paradise!
- NO alarms, NO stress
You wake up when you wake up. Usually because the sun rises or the rooster crows. Waking up naturally is unbelievably AWESOME and provides an absolutely fantastic start to the day. No stress
- You’re never late for anything
If you were born 10 minutes too late ( or like me, 1 hour too late) – you would LOVE this place! Myself, I’m always super optimistic with time, and therefor I’m always running late! AND YES, I hear you, it’s disrespectful… – that’s why I live here! 😉 I guess this goes together with the one above: NO alarms, NO stress – when you’re meeting someone at 4pm, is more 4:30-45… so: never late for anything!!
- You can party in thongs…
This should have been the top 1 reason on this list!!!! haha – I love my havaianas – and here, I never have to take them off! No dresscode when you’re going out for beers! Big + !!!!!!!
- Non materialistic – Happier life
I’m just so tired of society when it comes to the pressure and focus on having the finest and most expensive things. They feed your brain with: you need to have this jeans, and that car, this brand, and the right shoes etc to be happy! We forget what really matters, and from my own experience – you reach a different type of happiness when you realise: THINGS ARE THINGS!!!!! They are dead, and in 10 years from now you will not remember and talk about your cool, new Iphone 7 that you had back in 2016 – you will remember and talk about the people, the experiences and everything you DID! not the stuff you HAD
- The People, culture and experience
I love how the people here are so open, helpful and friendly. They talk to you (even if some of them speak little or no english) like you are a friend or even a family member. The culture is so relaxed and casual, and to learn and experience this just gives you a different perspective on the way you live, and life in general!
- Cheap awesome food – healthy!
You get cheap, awesome and healthy food! I have never taken care of myself, my body and health like I’m doing in Asia. Fresh fruit & veggies – AND they are naturally grown! love it, and so does my body and brain.
- Cheap beer
I’m not going to lie. I eat healthy so I can drink as much beer as I want. haha I love beer… Cambodia: 50cent… (my body and brain: not so much.. :P)
- …AND – you can get it when YOU want!
Food, drinks, clothes, massage, girls, guys… drugs… haha jokiiing! 😛 ANYWAY, you get my point. You can get what you want, when YOU want it.
Beautiful beaches, montains, islands, villages and hidden, nice spots to explore! You NEVER run out of places to see, and all of them are different and unique in their own way!
- Cats and dogs everywhere
This is super convenient for me! I really miss having a pet, but when I travel as much as I do it’s almost impossible (nothing is impossible but would be a lot of stress, and take a lot of planing.. and I’m not a fan of any of them.. :P) SO – I love all the dogs and cats hanging around so I can pretend it’s mine for an hour or so. And they love me aswell… when I pet them..
I hate to freeze. When I get cold my body HURTS, and my brain stops working! haha – BIG PROBLEM!!!!! I hate to get up in the morning, scrape ice off the car windshield and get chilblains because of it..
So, this is simply perfect! I don’t mind rain, as long as it’s warm and I can walk out and get breakfast in just t-shirt and shorts..
- You learn to FEEL grateful!
To be honest, I havn’t really FELT grateful until I visited Sout-east Asia for the first time November 2015. My life was good before, it always have been – don’t get me wrong – but the last year, my life has turned from good to great! And I’m 100% sure it’s because my mindset has changed. I’ve started to appreciate all the things that really matters in life, I have realised how lucky I am for having: my family, friends, health, my work and all the opportuinities I have in my life. Southeast Asia, the culture, the people, their way of living has really teached me something! I feel different and I have a different perspective. If I could, I would pass this feeling and perspective on to every single person I meet – but, it’s something you have to see, feel and experience yourself..
- Safety first!Kidding.No safety :P…
….GET IT ? (Except the last point!) Have you already been to Southeast Asia? Would love to hear from you! Feel free to leave a comment about your experience!!! And if you havn’t been yet, it’s about time 😉 !!– Berit
Be very specific and accurate about what you want – how you want your life to be, and look like.
Believe it or not, but it is actually up to YOU to decide. If you are not specific about what you want, you will actually end up with the “left-overs”, with something random, that no one else asked for.
Be absolutely clear when you define your goals – if you don’t know what you want, how can you expect to achieve it?
I left Phi Phi Island last Saturday, and took a ferry over to Phuket. I’m currently at Patong Beach.
Chillin on my balcony – Detoxing my skin while having a Kiwi Fruit Shake. I’m addicted to the Fruit Shakes here! LOVE IT
For those who know me – You know I love dogs, and in Asia they are everywhere! Love to pet them, and they love when I do it 😉
Patong Beach – I think I’ve been spoiled with nice beaches the last few years. I like Patong, but I don’t LOVE IT. So if you’re going to Thailand, there are a lot of other beautiful places I would visit before going to Patong.
Lunch time at the beach. Getting some work done while waiting for my food
Another Thailand Sunset <3 A bit cloudy, but still beautiful!
Hope you all had a great day – if not, Another day is about to start, so make sure you make that one AWESOME -Berit
