A Local’s Guide to Thisted, Denmark | with Mille
The more I travel, the more I love my hometown— Albuquerque, New Mexico. And this has inspired me to start this series, the hometown series. I will be interviewing people from around the world and asking them about their personal connections to their hometowns.
Meet my friend, Mille Filtenborg Jensen. I met her in downtown Randers while on a wild hunt for plant-based protein powder! I was so excited when I found her in quite possibly the only store in our little town that has plant-based anything. She was behind the counter and helping me navigate the Danish products. Unlike some Danes, she was super pumped to speak English with me. She told me she had studied abroad in North Carolina, where my sister went to college!
I absolutely adore Mille. She is super adventurous and loves to be active, like me. We love to meet up for sports events, go on coffee dates, and we have a tentative plan to leave the country sometime in the near future. I love her healthy lifestyle, she motivates me to go plant-based!
Mille also inspires me because she is so independent and leads such an interesting life. She has a serious travel bug, if you check out her Instagram you'll see what I mean. She has lived and traveled to many exotic places.
In a few weeks, she heads to Nepal by herself for a month! How many 25-year-olds do that? She is so cool! I am super thankful to have met Mille and have her in my town.
