About Me

🇪🇸☀️Sí, se habla español ☀️🇪🇸

I recently backpacked Westafrica:
Ghana, Togo, Benin and Ivorycoast. 🕊️🕊️

Check for more on my Instagram if you want: @olav_totravelistolive

I was recently in a TV reality show in Germany called SURVIVOR. (Supervivientes en España).

Currently I’m working as a paramedic here in Múnich,, taking care of wounded refugees coming to Europe.

Besides that, I finish studying Bachelor of Arts in 2020 (Spanish), at the university LMU in Munich, and was in the wonderful city of Seville, Spain for one year on an ERASMUS scholarship in 2018.

My primary at the university was
"German as a foreign language"
with Spanish as secondary.

¡Hablo bien español! ☀️🎓🇪🇸
¡Vamos a bailar salsa! 💃🏃
Mi presentación está en inglés para qué puedas practicar inglés también...

I am "a boy who travels"...

My current projects are:
- Travel through Latin America second half of 2024.
- Speak Spanish a lot and do the black belt in
TaeKwonDo in Corea 2025

Different cultures, religions and adventures is what really interests me.

Check out below the countries I have been to, have I been to yours yet? If not, convince me to go!!!

I am from Copenhagen, Denmark but live in Munich, Germany .

"To travel is to live" would be a good way to describe my life.

“You only live once, but if you work it out right, once is enough"

“Lets enjoy life before we understand it.."
