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,…

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…

Christmas Time in Flensburg

“Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind.
