I am Egle Helms – an adventurer, a freelancer with many passions, and a wife of an amazing man.
This website covers topics like moving and living abroad, planning and budgeting guides, tips on how to make the most of a destination, and memories of my previous travels.
People say I am a kind, stubborn and persuasive person. I find these characteristics cool to be known for. However, I would describe myself as a multi-passionate woman, proud emigrant and a restless human who loves the world.
Until recently, I was quite lost, I was searching for what I want to do with my life and career. The only thing I always knew – I don’t want a standard life.
Coming from a rather reserved background, my mentality was stagnant and quite straightforward. I just wanted to finish good school, have my 9to5 and, if I am lucky, to afford some travelling. I was doing my best to travel even in my teenage years. I managed to see Paris, Berlin, Prague, Moscow, Sankt Petersburg.
However, I think the Erasmus semester in Istanbul, Turkey was the big break for me. After coming back to Lithuania to finish my degree, I never felt like I belong anymore and thus travelled more. I visited quite a few European cities Venice, Vienna, Bratislava, Ljubljana, Zagreb.
After my Bachelor studies ended I landed in Sønderborg, Denmark to get my Master’s degree. This is where I met open, crazy, nomadic people, who challenged me to think differently. In addition, I got to know my wonderful husband there too.
After finishing my studies I moved to Budapest, Hungary for a traineeship in an EU Agency. I was really lucky to live in a fantastic city and have some great work experience. I was paving my way to a great career in public sector.
Suddenly, I changed my mind about everything, I quit my job, moved to Hamburg, Germany and got married to the love of my life.
Now, I am freelancing. I help one-man/small businesses to get online, be social and have a community (you can check out my website here).
On my free time, I plan, dream of or enjoy travelling.
To be completely honest, I feel like I haven’t seen anything yet and my true life-changing travel experiences are still in the future.
Originally, this website was supposed to be a beauty blog.
I am grateful to people who followed and liked the previous content. BUT… I had to move on. I wasn’t enjoying it much, and my ideas on the topic died off fast.
Writing about beauty felt quite foreign to me. I never considered myself really beautiful or high maintenance. I mean, I wash my hair with the cheapest shampoo, and do my own manicure… Definitely, not a trend in the beauty community.
However, TRAVEL seemed always to be something I enjoyed seeing others do, and always daydream about doing it myself.
So let’s start a new Chapter for this website!
Thanks for being here and enjoy the content! This time, I swear I will!
