And the adventure begins..

First of all: welcome to my blog and thank you for taking time to read what I have to say. With my blog, I wish to write about the adventures I will go on, to give you a little impression about my travels and share travelling experiences with you. I will try my best to put my experience into words, and hope that you will learn something from this blog, or just have have fun reading it.

Jørn Bjørn Augestad, Travel Advisor at Kilroy Travels

Personal:
I am 25 years old, 1 metersomething tall, I was born in Stavanger, but have no permanent city where I live.
I do two mainly two things in life- I either travel or think about my next travels, and then I do some blogging in between.

Educational:

I have studied in six countries, partly because it was a way for me to fulfill my dreams of living abroad, but also because it was a way of having my “rootlessness” sponsored by the government and private institutions through scholarships and grants.

In addition to language and teaching studies at various locations I have completed a Bachelor of International Communications degree at Østfold University College and a Masters of Business Administration (MBA) at Edinburgh Business School, which is a part of the Heriot-Watt University.


As a blogger:
I discovered that I possessed the travel gene in 2011, at an age of 21 and have since then blogged about my travels to nearly half of the Worlds countries.

I write down my personal experiences from the destinations I visit as well as general travel tips that I wish I would have known beforehand. I welcome all kinds of comments and PMs and answer happily to each and every one.


Professional:

I have had to work all the time throughout my studies, sometimes also with multiple jobs at a time to finance my travels. I have worked in shops, with handicapped people, with children, with the mail services, on farms, had marketing internships, worked as a skipper, a guide, a cleaner etc.

 

The last three years I have been working as a Travel Advisor for Kilroy Travels, learning all the tricks and the insider tips for car rental, cheaper airfares, about the destinations and more. This information I will try out myself and share with you through my upcoming travels, so stay tuned! I am hoping that at some point in the future, I will also have found a way of making my living by traveling- isn’t that what everyone wants?
