This Woman Came To Live In The Philippines And Sold Everything! Look At The Life She Made Here!

Being a student at a premier Swedish university and a project manager at a clothing company in Stockholm, Sanne Sevig is living the life a hundred girls would die for.

Unfortunately for her, this life gives her so much stress.

”I had too many things going on at once and was never satisfied,” Sevig said.

She may earn a lot of money but it was not enough as she suffered from fatigue and discomfort in lonely silence.

”I was smoking at the time and I couldn’t even go out for a cigarette and be quiet during the two minutes it takes. I had a panic attack. It was so quiet and I felt like shit. Then came the feeling that I couldn’t live like this anymore,” she said.

In 2012, she fainted while driving caused by being too tired from stress.


“The day after, I quit my job and wrote on Facebook that I had decided to move abroad, and wondered if someone had something they could recommend,” Sevig said.

“I got two answers. One was from a girl I was backpacking with several years earlier. She wrote that she had moved to Manila, and that I could stay with her for free. Four weeks later, I landed in Manila.”

The moment her feet felt the land of the Pearl of the Orient, she thought Cloud Nine could be found in the Philippines. She decided to sell everything she had and start a new stress-free life in the country.

Now, she moved to the beautiful island of Siargao and put up a hostel, where she lives in peace and enjoys life every day.

“When I came here, I was riding in a car from the airport, and had my nose pressed against the window and thought oh well, now I’ve found my home. I had not even had a single day on the job,” Sevig said.
