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…

A Day of Adventures at Lake Mývatn in North Iceland

We had left the best for the last day on Iceland – the eutrophic Lake Mývatn in the north part of the country, created by a large basaltic lava eruption 2300 years ago. Mývatn is a destination that I’ve wanted to explore for ages. I’ve been to Iceland twice before and both times I’d planned to see Mývatn, but in October 2013 there was not…

Roadtrip: The Spectacular Fjords of East Iceland

When my family and I went on the Viking Cruise on the North Atlantic back in October, we spent two full days in the beautiful, vast and unexplored eastern part of Iceland. On day one of our adventures in Iceland, I had planned a roadtrip that would take us through five small villages, starting in Seyðisfjörður where the ferry was docked, and ending in Neskaupstaður…

Viking Cruise on the North Atlantic: A Week in the Faroe Islands and Iceland

On October 15th, my family and I set off on a week-long adventure on the North Atlantic Ocean: The Viking Cruise with Smyril Line to the Faroe Islands and Iceland. Back in 2013, my mum and I went on the same cruise at the same time of the year, and this was when I fell in love with the Faroe Islands – and also East…

15 Favourite New Destinations of 2015

2015 has been a great travel year for me. I was in the middle of my two gap years, when 2015 started, so I’ve had plenty of time to explore the World. Basically, my year has been work, travel, work, travel, work, travel. Just the way I like it. I’ve been on weekendtrips to Latvia and Germany, family holidays in Spain, Andorra and England and…

The Journey Comes to an End

2 months, 62 days, 1488 hours, 89280 minutes, 5356800 seconds. This is the amount of time that I travelled for. It’s the longest I’ve ever travelled, ever been away from home and ever had to stand on my own legs. It was a very spontaneous decision that made me go. Made me take a chance that I would never regret. To begin with, I was…

Snæfellsnes, Snowstorm and Police Rescue

After spending five lovely days with Thorhallur in Thingeyri in the Westfjords, Steve and I decided to move on to the Snæfellsnes peninsula in West Iceland for my last two days in Iceland. We were ready to drive at 2.00 PM, but started the day of by being stuck in Thorhallurs driveway. There had been a snowstorm the day before, so the ground underneath the…

Westfjords: The Best Place to Get Lost

Ever since my parents went back to Denmark on Monday morning, I’ve been spending my days in the Westfjords in North/West Iceland. As I wrote in my latest blog post, Steve and I are staying with Thorhallur in Thingeyri. Westfjords is a place that most tourists don’t visit on their travels in Iceland, as it’s not on the ringroad and quite far from all the…

Aurora in the Westfjords

When I was in Faroe Islands in March, I saw the Aurora Borealis for the first time – but they were so faint that I wouldn’t even count it as all I could see were white spots that looked like clouds. I have always dreamed of seeing real vibrant Northern Lights and for the journey that I’m currently on, I counted on Iceland to make…
