Hey you! I love that you’re here to get to know me better! I’d like to get to know you better, too, so please leave a comment below and introduce yourself!
First things first, I’m the realest.
First things first, my name is Lisa. I’m 25 years old, and was blessed enough to be born and raised in a small village in Western Norway. If you’ve ever seen photos of the beautiful Norwegian fjords, you’ve most likely seen a photo from my hometown. See what I mean by blessed?
I usually introduce myself as a 25-year-old Norwegian wanderluster with chronic sarcasm, a severe coffee addiction and a constant longing for the ocean. This longing, paired with where I’m from has formed the basis of the name Fjords & Beaches.
I started blogging when I moved to Wales as part of an Exchange Program at 17. The blog was simple, and purely to keep in touch with my friends and family at home. After an amazing year in Wales that I will never forget, and another year back in Norway finishing high school/Sixth form (during which I continued blogging as a hobby), I followed my dream of moving to London to study law.
I spent three amazing years living in London, every day a reminder of how much I love the city. This also lead to a new blog being formed, one which I kept writing and updating for years to come; LisaLDN.com. After graduation I moved across
the another pond to work as a Cultural Representative in Walt Disney World, Florida! Working for the mouse was an absolute dream, I dare go as far as saying it was … magical. Bet you didn’t see that coming?
I am currently living in Norway, working hard
for the money to travel as much as I please, all while refusing to grow up. I am also putting a lot of time and energy into Fjords & Beaches, and I love seeing the blog grow!
Other things you may want to know about me is that I am addicted to coffee (we’re talking 3-5 cups a day – black, no sugar), I have an American accent that I can’t seem to shake, I feel incredibly lucky to be able to travel as much as I do, and I am a huge PotterHead.
