16 Favourite New Destinations of 2016

In 2016, I visited 24 countries of which 16 were new ones. 2016 has been a most exciting travel year and I’ve experienced a lot and ticked several things off my bucket list. I’ve continued my explorations of Europe, visited my beloved Faroe Islands twice and spent 3½ months travelling through new regions of Asia. To celebrate the great travel year of 2016, I’ve put…

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…

My Top 10 Must-Sees in Budapest

One day in the middle of December, I was searching for plane tickets on Momondo, just as I always do. I stumbled upon return tickets from Copenhagen to Budapest for just 278 DKK in January and I booked them. Just like that. Sometimes, I don’t even think, I just book, but I never regret.

An Unsuccessful Trip to Visegrád

Visegrád is a small town in Pest County, 45 km. north of Budapest, famous for its medieval citadel and the remains of the Early Renaissance summer palace of King Matthias Corvinus of Hungary. It’s a beautiful and interesting town, but getting there is a whole other story! Since my friend Steve had recommended Visegrád, I tried to visit it on my third day in Hungary.…

Photo Diary: Magical Winter in Budapest

In the beginning of January, I had some days with no work and some early birthday money from my parents that I decided to spend on creating new travel memories. Due to cheap flights, cheap living and recommendations from a friend, I chose to go to Budapest, the capital of Hungary, for nine days. A decision that I would not regret, because the city is…
