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…

Kazimierz: In the Footsteps of the Jews of Europe

Of all the cities in Poland that I visited during my one-week travels, Kraków was the one I spent the most time in. My main reason for going and staying for three nights was to experience the notorious atmosphere of the old town that – unlike in many other Polish cities – wasn’t destroyed during the Second World War and still stands as it was…

11 Great Reasons to Visit Poznan

I first discovered the city of Poznan when I was in the eighth grade. I was given an assignment in my geography class and had to write about a city. I’d always been fascinated by Poland, so I looked at a map of the country and chose Poznan from there. I’m not sure why, maybe I just liked the sound of the name. I enjoyed…

Back from a Week in Poland

Three hours ago, I arrived in Malmø Airport after 8 days of travelling around Poland. This trip has been all about saving money and doing it as cheap as possible, but still experiencing as much as possible. Therefore, I spent my last night in the airport and two other nights on night trains. But apart from my lack of sleep some nights, I’ve had a…

A Day of Exploring in Gdansk

The first stop on my tour of Poland was the ancient harbour city of Gdansk. Founded in 1224, the city is rich on history and buildings from all ages can still be seen. During the Second World War, 90 percent of the buildings in the old town were ruined, but the buildings were later rebuilt in their original style. The very centre of Gdansk is the Royal…

Flying into Gdansk

Yesterday, I arrived in Gdansk, a city in the North of Poland. I flew with Wizz Air and had a pleasant 1-hour long flight. But the best part of it was the landing! I’ve never seen such a beautiful city from the air before! There are quite a few ways to get to Gdansk from Denmark; you can either go by bus, train, ferry or…

Got a Few Days off Work? Why not Go Travelling!?

A few weeks ago, I got my work plan for September and discovered that I had quite a few days off next week. My first thought was “man, I’m going to be bored!”, but my second thought was “why should I? I’ll go explore something!”. So mission “Lets go travelling” had started. Before I could even start dreaming about a new destination, I had to…
