My Favourite Travel Photos of 2017

2017 has been another great travel year for me, although I haven’t visited nearly as many countries as last year. I’ve been studying full-time and working part-time, but I’ve still had time to visit 14 countries, 7 of them new ones, on over 16 different trips. I love to take pictures and I take waaaay too many on every trip, so finding my favourites has…

My Travel Year of 2017

Today is the last day of 2017, and that means that it’s time to reflect on the year that has gone by. 2017 has been a brilliant travel year for me, despite studying full-time and also working two part time jobs. I’ve done everything that I had planned to do and more – although I can never get enough of travel! In 2017, I visited 14 countries,…

Dyrehaven: Wildlife and Ancient Burial Mounds in a Bronze Age Cultural Landscape in North Zealand

Dyrehaven is one of my favourite places here on Zealand. Located just 30 km northeast of the center of Copenhagen – or just a 20 minute train ride -, this peaceful green haven is one of the go-to places on a warm summer day in Copenhagen when you just want to get away from big city life with too many people, too much traffic and too much pollution.…

Culture Night in Copenhagen and a Surprise Concert with Faroese Eivør

Eivør Pálsdóttir. Do you know her? If not, click play and discover the most beautiful voice on this planet. She’s one of my favourite singers on the entire planet. And of course, she just happens to be Faroese. This Friday was one of the best nights I’ve had here in Copenhagen – because I finally got to experience that magical voice of hers! It was…

Tokkekøb Hegn: 12 km Hike through a Neolithic Culture Landscape

Tokkekøb Hegn is a 631 hectare nature pearl in North Zealand with varied landscapes of forest, hills, marshes and lakes, dotted with remnants of prehistoric times. The area is home to many dolmens, long barrows and passage graves from the Neolithic, including the well-preserved Dæmpegårdsdyssen from 3,400 BC. Autumn is officially here, although it feels like summer never was. Even Indian summer hasn’t greeted us…

Vasagård: Three Weeks of Archaeological Excavations on Bornholm

On July 2nd, I left Copenhagen to go to Bornholm, an island in the very east of Denmark, for three weeks. As a part of my education, I was working at archaeological excavations for four whole weeks this summer, which would count as an exam. The first week was spent at Højagergaard 4 in Høje Taastrup, which I wrote about in an earlier post. The…

Island Hopping: From Gudhjem to Christiansø and Frederiksø

On the last Sunday on Bornholm, I biked to the quaint village of Gudhjem, and caught a ferry to the tiny islands of Christiansø and Frederiksø in the Ertholmene archipelago. When I left the camping place in the morning, the sun was shining and the sky was bright blue. It seemed like the perfect day for a bike ride and some island explorations. I had…

Video: Cableway at Opalsøen

While on Bornholm this summer, I wanted to see just about everything. But I also wanted to try new adventurous and exciting things. That’s why I decided to try the cableway at Opalsøen on the first Sunday. I’ve travelled a lot. I’ve been to over 50 countries. I’ve climbed countless mountains, even Mount Kinabalu at 4.095 metres. I’ve walked across glaciers, biked through a country,…

A Cycling Trip Through the Southeast of Bornholm

Weekend time is sightseeing time! I’ve spent three weeks on Bornholm, but only had two free days to fully explore some of the gems of the island. Although I’ve also made the most of my weekday afternoons, discovering areas close to Åkirkeby, I felt like I really had to make the most of those two weekend days! So, on the Saturday I decided to bike…

Back to the Middle Ages in Northeast Bornholm

Last Friday, the four of us left off work a bit early, as we wanted to catch the last boat to take us along the famous Helligdomsklipperne, and afterwards pay a visit to Bornholm’s Medieval Center and the round church in Østerlars. We first drove to Gudhjem, from where we would catch the boat to the cliffs. Gudhjem is a small town on the northeastern…
