Happy Anniversary CIRCUMNAVIGATOR blog!

Aarhus 2012

I have a confession to make. On the one month anniversary of the CIRCUMNAVIGATOR blog, I have to admit that I actually have ulterior motives for creating this travel blog.

It is not that I don’t love to travel and through this media also share my experiences with the audience that wants to listen. But honestly another very important reason for this blog, is a thing a lot of people is struggling with all over the world these days – unemployment.

I am like many others presently jobless and after some months sending application after application without any positive feedback, I looked into myself and thought: “OK what would be the perfect job for me? What would I burn for day and night, if necessary?”

And the answer is: travelling. That is and has always been my number one hobby and I have spent a lot of money on my travels but during my education where I spent 4 months studying in Finland and in many of my past jobs, I have luckily also managed to combine work and travels. As an example see my post about My longest road trip in Germany. So I thought: “Why not work with travelling and tourism full time?” Unfortunately, I have no experience working in the tourism business – well, apart from many years ago when I was a kitchen assistant in a 4 star hotel in London for almost one year.

But I have travelled around the world, I speak and understand a handful of languages and being a former sales and marketing manager who thinks creative, why not combine it all, I thought.

The CIRCUMNAVIGATOR blog

So here it is: the CIRCUMNAVIGATOR blog about my travels which is also created to tell the world that I would love to have a job that can connect my hobby with the fact that I need to earn some money to survive and of course consequently travel some more. Further to this, I have made a Facebook page where I share my blog posts and give advice to other travellers. I try to keep most of my material in English but some of the advices are also in my native tongue, Danish. I also use other social media like Twitter, LinkedIn and Pinterest to market my blog. I do hope that this will spread the word and possibly end on the computer screen of a potential employer that like what they see and find me interesting for a job in their company.

At this point, I haven’t defined my dream job 100 percent. I also don’t know where in the world it will be situated. But please do not hesitate to contact me, if you can help me closer to a job within the tourism business, or where I can combine work with travelling.
