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,…

A Spontaneous 2-Day Mini Cruise to Oslo

One of my main reasons for moving to Copenhagen to study back in August last year, was because of the opportunities to take short trips to our neighbour countries of Sweden and Norway, and to travel whenever I feel like it and have time, as the airport is just a short metro ride away. Lula, Zille and I went on a day trip to Lund…

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…

Deep in the Swedish Wilderness: A Sami Adventure

On April 27th, I had decided to leave Lofoten and my friends at the hostel behind and head to my next big adventure, which was something that I had been wanting to do for ages. I was going to Båtsuoj Samecenter in Norrbottens Län in Sweden, but it would take me two days to get there. Generally, the public transport doesn’t run very well in…

Lofoten: A Nature Lover’s Paradise

After sailing for 17 hours from Tromsø, I was exhausted, when I finally reached Lofoten Islands. I got off the ferry in Svolvær, the biggest town on Lofoten with just 8.000 inhabitants. I arrived at 6.30 PM on April 22nd and set out to find a spot for my tent straight away. I ended up walking to the end of the town without finding any…

Through Fjords on Hurtigruten: From Tromsø to Lofoten

On April 21st, it was time to leave Svalbard and the Arctic and head to Tromsø, where I would have one evening to explore the city, before sailing to Lofoten Islands. My flight was at 2 PM, so I slept in and got ready and then headed for the small airport, which is 2 km. away from Longyearbyen. Originally, Piotrek had said that he would…

16 Hours in Oslo

On my way to Longyearbyen, Svalbard from Iceland, I had a 16-hour stopover in Oslo. I arrived there at 5.00 PM on April 14th and left the following day at 9.00 AM. I had already decided that I was going to spend the evening sightseeing in Oslo, so after I had collected my luggage, I paid a small amount to have it stored at the…

The First Journey: Northern Europe ’15

Many people have commented saying how unusual my choices are or simply give me a strange look when I tell them, but I am not just doing this to be different – or because I like the cold – I actually have quite good reasons for choosing the places that I’ve chosen. All the places are well-thought-out and I am excited about every place for…
