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…

Hostel Madness and Hiking Fails in Hong Kong

After a short sleep on the ferry between Macao and Hong Kong, I arrived in the city at 8 PM for the second time in under two months.

Macao: A Quick Visit to the Asian Las Vegas

I had two pleasant flights, first with British Airways and then with Cathay Pacific Airways, where I got free food, drinks and icecream! The service was the best I’ve ever tried and they even…

On My Way to New Adventures: Beijing & Australia

Right now, I’m sitting on a ferry that will take me to Sjælland, where a bus is waiting to drive me to the airport in Copenhagen. I’ve embarked on my next big travel adventure; Beijing for a day and then Australia for 4 weeks! I’m excited to see what awaits me Down Under and I know that I’m in for a total culture shock in…
