Brecon Beacons National Park: Climbing Mt. Pen-y-Fan and Mt. Corn Du in Thin Sneakers

On our second day in Wales and the last day before a three-day conference, we wanted to see some of the stunning Welsh nature. Ultimately, going to Snowdonia National Park up north is the dream, but since it’s a four hour drive each way, it wasn’t realistic with the limited daylight hours in December. Instead, we opted for Brecon Beacons National Park, which was just…

December Days in Cardiff

We arrived in Cardiff, the capital of Wales, on an early Saturday morning after travelling from Copenhagen to London by flight and then on a night bus from Gatwick Airport to Cardiff. Despite having to change busses twice during the 5,5-hour trip, we managed to get a bit of sleep in, so we weren’t completely exhausted when we finally reached the city. Our main reason…

My Worst Travel Moments of 2017

Another year, another set of bad travel experiences. Those are bound to happen when you decide to travel as extensively as I do, but thankfully, there are always more good experiences than bad, which you can read about here. But, because I don’t want to give a wrong impression of the life as a traveller, I choose to write about the bad experiences as well,…

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,…

Third Semester Travels: Much More of Europe

Third semester at uni has just begun, and it’s all very exciting, but I’m already feeling the need for travel. As much as I love archaeology, I simply don’t function without travel. So whenever I have the chance, I grab it – and I’m off to somewhere new or somewhere old and treasured. I’ve done it my two previous semesters. During the first semester, I…
