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…

16 Hours in Bergamo

I arrived in Bergamo, an old city in Northern Italy, on a rainy afternoon in early June. I was officially back in Europe, and after 3 months of travelling through (mostly sunny) Asia, it was a welcome change of weather, architecture and easiness of travel. A month earlier, I had decided to book a short stopover in Italy on my way back to Denmark from…

Karakol: By the Eastern Tip of Issyk Kul Lake

After spending a few days in the Kyrgyz capital, it was time to take on a new city. Karakol is a city with 75.000 inhabitants, located near the Issyk Kul Lake in the easternmost corner of Kyrgyzstan. Karakol is a top destination for travellers in Kyrgyzstan due to the amazing and diverse nature found in the area, and because of this, we decided to spend…

My Top 10 Must-Sees in Budapest

One day in the middle of December, I was searching for plane tickets on Momondo, just as I always do. I stumbled upon return tickets from Copenhagen to Budapest for just 278 DKK in January and I booked them. Just like that. Sometimes, I don’t even think, I just book, but I never regret. I had no expectations of Budapest, but it turned out to…

Dublin: Pubs, Cathedrals and One Enormous Park

Dublin is a beautiful city with heaps to see and do: whether you enjoy getting drunk on one of the atmospheric Irish pubs, spending money on good shopping and dining or getting spiritual in the beautiful churches and cathedrals, there is something for everyone. Although everything is close by and could be seen in just one day, you need at least a few days to…

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…

Three Days in Adelaide

When I was planning my month in Australia, I already knew that I wanted to see some of the highlights on the East Coast. I hadn’t thought about the South, but when I rebooked my tickets and gained 10 more days Down Under, I decided to add Adelaide – a city that I knew absolutely nothing about – to the list and stay there for…

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…

Andorra: A Country Hidden in the Mountains

Andorra. How beautiful that sounds – and beautiful it is. Andorra is a country that I’ve always wished to visit, but I can’t even count how many times I’ve heard the questions “what’s Andorra?”, “is that a part of Spain” or “how can there be a country in the Pyrenees?” whenever I’ve mentioned my desire to go there. Unfortunately for them and many other people,…

Girona: The Overshadowed City

Girona, an ancient Catalan city founded in 79 BC, is a beautiful pearl in the Northeastern corner of Spain. But given its close location to the city of Barcelona, Girona is often greatly underrated and overshadowed by its majorly famous big brother. Being one of the major cities in Catalonia with a population of 97.000, Girona has a lot to offer and never fails to…
