My Favourite Travel Photos of 2016

2016 has been a glorious travel year. I’ve visited 24 countries, 16 of them new ones, and everywhere I’ve been, I’ve brought my trusty Sony camera with me. Even here in Copenhagen, I can’t live without it. I’ve taken thousands of pictures this year, more than ever before, and choosing my favourites hasn’t been an easy job. It took me a while, but here they…

Stevns Klint: A Danish Natural Heritage Site on the Island of Zealand

Stevns Klint is a 17 km long and 14 m high gem of a chalk cliff on the Stevns peninsula in Southeast Zealand. In 2014, the site of Stevns Klint was included on the UNESCO World Heritage List, because of its fossil-rich cliff that offers outstanding evidence of the impact of the Chicxulub meteorite, which is thought to have caused the biggest mass extinction ever…

Danish Island Holiday: To Møns Klint and Beyond

On the first weekend after moving to Copenhagen, I decided to take a trip out to one of Denmark’s nature pearls located on the beautiful island of Møn in South Denmark. Two years earlier, I had given my parents a voucher for a weekend trip to Møn for mother’s day, which they had decided to use on that glorious weekend in late August. Since I…

Cultural Wednesday: Visiting Frederiksborg Castle in Hillerød

Today was a glorious day! The sun was shining, the air was fresh, and it was time for an adventure outside the city! Our teacher had arranged for our class to visit the ruins of Æbelholt Abbey, an old Augustinian monastery, which is located 5 km. west of Hillerød in Northern Zealand. Because of its remote location, a few of us chose to take our…

Merry Christmas from Denmark

MERRY CHRISTMAS! Christmas is the one time of the year that I don’t want to be travelling. I cherish the time I have at home with my family and Christmas is one of those cozy times that I just don’t want to miss out on. My travel schedule has been busy this year; I just came back from Australia two weeks ago and on New…

Sunrise on the Kattegat Sea

For the past year, I’ve become more and more fascinated by the sun. After experiencing the Total Solar Eclipse on Faroe Islands in March this year, I’ve really gotten to understand and appreciate how important the sun is to the life on Earth. Imagine a day without sunlight! It’s the most depressing thing that I can imagine – but thankfully, we still have millions of…

Total Lunar Eclipse & Blood Moon ’15

Just over two hours ago, my friend Laura and I woke up and went outside to see the Total Lunar Eclipse. Ever since experiencing my first Total Solar Eclipse on Faroe Islands earlier this year, I’ve been fascinated by eclipses and therefore, I had to get up and see this one! A Lunar Eclipse is not as rare as a Solar Eclipse, but it is…
