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…

17 Favourite New Destinations of 2017

Another beautiful travel year is over, and it’s time to look back at some of the most amazing new places that I saw this year. In 2017, I visited 14 countries of which 7 were new ones. I spent 18 days in Iran, explored some more of Europe, visited the Faroe Islands twice, saw a total solar eclipse on a Route 66 tour in the…

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,…

Discovering Malmö: On a Day Trip to Scania’s Capital

For too long now, Malmö has been underrated and had a reputation of being an unsafe city with too many criminals and too much ethnic division. It has been named the ‘crime capital of Scandinavia’. It has been called ugly, uninteresting, bland. But I’d never actually seen it for myself. Despite the fact that Malmö lies literally JUST across the Øresund Bridge from Copenhagen, only…

A Day Trip to Medieval Lund

It was a normal, gloomy day in early February. My friend Lula and I were sitting in the reading room at uni. I was trying my best to read, but I kept getting distracted by travel images running through my head. Ever since I returned back to Denmark from Iran, I’ve been dying to get on the road again and explore something new. There’s not…

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…

Destination Gotland

After sailing for three hours from Nynäshamn on the Swedish mainland, I finally arrived on Gotland at 11.20 PM on May 1st, to the beautiful town of Visby, which is the main town on Gotland. The old Hanseatic city center of Visby is surrounded by a 3,4 km. town wall and is one of the best-preserved medieval towns in Scandinavia. It’s also represented on the…

Night Train to Stockholm

After having a rather cold, but very interesting night at Båtsuoj Samecenter, and a very eventful start to the day, it was time to head for Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, on April 30th at 1.30 PM. Tom drove me to the busstop in Slagnäs, we said goodbye and I started the long journey through most of Sweden. The bus from Slagnäs that took me…

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…
