Hi! I'm Annika.
I created Annieverywhere in January 2017 to inspire you to travel and explore the world, and to help you make the most out of your trips.
So far I've travelled to 22 countries, lived in 3, and picked a thing or two up along the way.
To be inspired you can navigate my posts by activity and read about outdoor activities, sightseeing, snorkeling, road trips, or city breaks.
If you have a specific destination in mind, use my map to find pictures, tips, and travel guides.
Are you worried about the cost or the stress of planning a trip? I've put together a list of the best travel resources I use when planning and booking my trips, so you can save some money and make planning a breeze.
Q & A
Where are you from?
I grew up about an hour from Copenhagen, Denmark (hence the accent) and moved to London when I was 18. A year later I moved back to Denmark to start my bachelor's degree in Media Production and Management. During my bachelors, I was lucky enough to do a 6-month exchange in Sydney, Australia.
Today I am back in Copenhagen and working full-time as a Project Manager at a Brand Activation company.
Why did you start Annieverywhere?
While studying in Australia I met my boyfriend who is from Buffalo, New York. This led to a two year (and counting) long distance relationship which involves a lot of travelling and meetups in different parts of the world. I started my Instagram Annieverywhere as a way to share and remember all these amazing memories but quickly learned that I love inspiring people and I love being a part of the enormous travel community there is online.
How do you afford to travel?
I work a full-time job and prioritise saving up money for travelling. I also always try to keep my expenses as low as possible. Travelling doesn't have to be as expensive as most people believe.
I take a lot of weekend trips within Europe where the flights are pretty affordable if you fly outside of the most popular seasons. I also always look for youth tickets, which a lot of airlines offer (a good tip if you're a young adult).
How do you find time to travel with a full-time job?
I love weekend trips! Everything is close in Europe, so you have plenty of time to explore a new place if you leave straight from work on Friday.
For the longer trips I take time off work, but since we get 6 weeks paid vacation in Denmark (yup, we really get 6 weeks) it's not a problem.
What is your favourite place?
London is without a doubt my favourite city. I went there for the first time when I was 6 years old and I've always felt at home and happy whenever I go back.
My favourite country would have to be Australia. It's such a beautiful place, with so much to do and see.
What kind of trips do you enjoy the most?
While growing up my parents always brought me on big-city trips. But after living 6 months in Sydney and travelling around Australia and New Zealand, I realised that adventures and outdoorsy trips are what make me the happiest. I love hiking, sailing, snorkelling, and everything that makes the adrenaline pump.
With that being said I do prefer a nice mix of busy cities, relaxing breaks, and active adventures.
