My Worst Travel Moments of 2016

2016 has been a year of many beautiful and memorable moments, the best of which I put together in a list in the previous post. But all good times come with bad times, and even though they aren’t what fill the pages of this blog too often, they happen to me too – this year more than ever. A lot of things that I never…

My Best Travel Moments of 2016

I love this time of year. It’s time to reflect on the year that has passed and remember all of the good times. This year, I’ve visited 24 countries and in every one of them, I’ve had beautiful and memorable moments. But some of those moments stand out more than others – they are the moments that I think back on with a huge smile…

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…

From Southeast to Central Asia: A 3-Month Round-Up

On March 2nd, I embarked on my longest journey so far – a journey that took me through some amazing countries in Southeast Asia, East Asia and Central Asia. 101 days, 45.000 km., 14 countries, 12 capitals, 20 flights and 57 blog posts later, I arrived back in my home country of Denmark on June 10th with a heavy backpack full of beautiful memories. Today,…

A Perplexing Visit to Brunei

Brunei Darussalam is a small, oil-rich country on Borneo that most people don’t ever visit or even hear about in their lifetime. Despite the fact that Brunei is not known for any major sights or nature, I decided to pay the small sultanate a visit while I was travelling through Borneo. Brunei has one of the highest standards of living in Asia and has a…

Sweet Times in Kota Kinabalu

Prior to going to Kota Kinabalu in Borneo, I had a few people tell me to get out of there as soon as I could. From what I had heard, Kota Kinabalu – or KK as the locals call it – has nothing to offer and is one of those places that you immediately want to escape from as soon as you set foot there.…

Chasing Orangutans in Borneo

Before I left for Asia, I listed a few goals that I wanted to achieve on the journey. One of them was seeing orangutans in Borneo, since Borneo is one of two places (the other one being Sumatra), where orangutans are native. When booking my flights to and from Borneo, I was very naive in thinking that I could explore the whole island, climb Mount…

25 Travel Goals Before 25

In 4 years, 5 months, 2 weeks and 2 days, I’ll be turning 25, but before that I have some goals that I would love to achieve! I have a full list of lifetime goals on the Travel Goals page, but there are some places and things that I just need to see and do in the near future – and I have decided to set…
