If you're already living the life that everyone's been dreaming of, will you still choose to leave it all behind and look for another way to live a simpler life? Of course, most of you would say no, but there would still be some people who would try to take the risk and start a whole new life again.
Now, there's this woman named Sanne Sevig who left everything behind and chose to live a simple life in the Philippines.
When Sevig was 25 years old, she studied at the University of Skövde and at the same time, she's also a project manager at a clothing company in Stockholm. In addition to that, this young woman has also been managing her own company and lecturing all over Sweden.
However, despite her luxurious life, this woman still chose leave it all behind when she realized that life in Sweden isn't for her because it's extremely stressful for her.
”I had too many things going on at once and was never satisfied”, Sanne says.
After stress-filled years and sleepless nights that led to her suffering from fatigue, she finally decided to do something about it.
”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”, Sanne says.

She stated that after she quit her job, she asked a couple of netizens to give her the best places to move in and she got two answers and a friend of hers suggested her to go to Manila.
In 2012, she said: “I fainted in my car and drove off the road. Luckily, I suffered no physical injuries as a result of my accident. 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. 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.”
After moving in to the Philippines, she fell in love with the beauty of this country and decided to sell everything she had and just start a whole new life in the Philippines.
Now, she's already 29 years old and she already put up a hostel in the beautiful island of Siargao in Philippines.
As soon as she saw the island, she said: “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.”
