Okay, I admit it. I have a newsletter.

This is where I try to sell you on subscribing to it. But let’s be honest. That’s what everyone does these days. You sign up, you get some stuff in your inbox every so often and after a while you forget why you subscribed in the first place.

My newsletter is different.

I know, we all say that. But if it makes you feel any better, here is a list of reasons why you should not subscribe to my newsletter. Maybe that’ll make you see that I’m honestly trying to do something really different than all the rest of the internet newsletter people out there.

I am working as a logistic assistent in a hardware company in Denmark. It is an interesting job, which i like very much, and best of all, it gives me economical freedom to travel the world.

Some of my greatest experiences took place in Malaysia, where i have been running in Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Cameron Highland and on Borneo.
