We are Tanja and Lenny, the creators of @breakawaytoday and this is our breakawaytale! ⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀
We grew up on opposite sides of the German-Danish border. Lenny in the Danish minority in Germany and Tanja in the German minority in Denmark. Our paths finally merged in high-school, when we picked the same class ✨ ⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀
That is now a decade ago and we have changed a lot through the years, but most of the changes have mended us even more to the team that we are today 👫 ⠀⠀⠀
After our highschool graduation, we worked a winter season in Norway. With the money we saved, we bought a VW T3 van. Back then we were quite young and very careless about our money, so it ran out within 3 months on the road. We were just left with a feeling that there was still so much more that we wanted to see, and we didn't want to postpone it to another point in life. Our mission ever since has been to explore our planet, and to make the most of life. But even more importantly: to keep broadening our horizons and developing ourselves 💚 ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
For more than 5 times we returned to a skidestination in Switzerland to earn money for our next adventure. We worked seasonal jobs as cafe employees and as skilift staff. These jobs have financed our European vanlife and several backpacking trips to Asia. But things have changed now, since we have become fulltime digital nomads and now earn money while living vanlife 🚐⠀⠀
⠀⠀
We both thrive best when feeling completely free and being in charge of our own lives, so this choice felt right. We don't know for how long we will live in our van, but we are used to living a life with next to no guidelines, so we will do it as long as it makes us happy. ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀
