Biking to Dragør: A Charming Village on the Eastern Tip of Amager

Ten days ago, I finally had a day off work, and since I don’t have many days off in June, I’ve decided to spend those few days that I have the best way possible. It’s summer, the weather is beautiful and I have no exams to revise for, so going on adventures seems like the perfect way to spend my free days. On June 6th,…

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…

An Hour on Stóra Dímun: Visiting the Island of One Family

After a great day on Koltur, an island with just two inhabitants, it was time for us to fly to another sparsely populated destination. We were going to Skúvoy, but first we had a 1-hour stopover on the tiny island of Stóra Dímun, where only one family of 7 people lives. Stóra Dímun is a feast for the eyes – and the landing was breathtaking.…

Khorog to Dushanbe: An Epic Flight through the Pamir Mountains

After three days of driving along the Pamir Highway, a few days in Khorog and then a little detour to Afghanistan, it was finally time to head to Dushanbe, the capital of Tajikistan, or as we would say; back to civilization. After several days without wifi, showers and variety of foods, we were both excited to be going to a big city again. Although I…

Bishkek: The Dynamic Capital of Kyrgyzstan

After 16 wonderful days in Mongolia, it was time to leave and head to my next exciting destination: Kyrgyzstan! Whenever I had told people where I was heading next, I had been met with curiosity. Because Kyrgyzstan definitely isn’t a standard backpacker destination. I have, however, always been interested in the Central Asian countries (or “the Stan’s”, if you will), and thus chose Kyrgyzstan as…

Flying into the Whitsunday Islands

The second part of my favourite domestic flight in Australia was the most beautiful landing over the Whitsunday Islands, ending at Hamilton Island Airport. The first part was flying from Sydney, which was gorgeous, but flying into the Whitsundays was simply breathtaking. I’ve seen quite a few beautiful landings in my short lifetime, but none have been anywhere near as stunning as this one! From…

Flying into Gdansk

Yesterday, I arrived in Gdansk, a city in the North of Poland. I flew with Wizz Air and had a pleasant 1-hour long flight. But the best part of it was the landing! I’ve never seen such a beautiful city from the air before! There are quite a few ways to get to Gdansk from Denmark; you can either go by bus, train, ferry or…

Flying into the Faroe Islands

Yesterday, I arrived in the Faroe Islands for the third time. But for the first time, I flew into the country instead of sailing. Sailing is normally quite a lot cheaper than flying, but it also takes two days each way, where flying only takes two hours each way. I got lucky though and purchased the tickets for just 1.700 DKK. I flew with Atlantic…
