My name is Sophie. I grew up in a small town called Nyköping in Sweden and lived there with my family till I was 20 years old in 2008. I met my partner Jeremy online, and he came over from New Zealand to Sweden to study in 2008. We fell in love and spent most of 2008 with each other, travelling around Sweden and different parts of Europe.
When it was time for him to leave Sweden, I spent a few weeks dreading the thought of being away from him, and after some time I decided to go with him. A decision which was very hard to make, as I’m quite an anxious person who easily overthinks things and can sometimes be afraid to try new things.
Everything worked out well though, as I’ve lived in New Zealand since, and Jeremy and I got engaged in October 2015, on top of Cecil Peak in beautiful Queenstown.
I’ve been lucky enough to travel around New Zealand quite a bit. It’s such a beautiful place, and I don’t regret coming here for a second. In saying that, I miss my family a lot, so I try to go visit them as often as I can. The plan is to move back over there sometime in the near future.
Through this blog I will share with you my thoughts, dreams, goals, achievements, challenges and overall experiences.
Feel free to ask me any questions, and I’ll be happy to answer them! 🙂
