Stevns Klint: A Danish Natural Heritage Site on the Island of Zealand

Stevns Klint is a 17 km long and 14 m high gem of a chalk cliff on the Stevns peninsula in Southeast Zealand. In 2014, the site of Stevns Klint was included on the UNESCO World Heritage List, because of its fossil-rich cliff that offers outstanding evidence of the impact of the Chicxulub meteorite, which is thought to have caused the biggest mass extinction ever…

Danish Island Holiday: To Møns Klint and Beyond

On the first weekend after moving to Copenhagen, I decided to take a trip out to one of Denmark’s nature pearls located on the beautiful island of Møn in South Denmark. Two years earlier, I had given my parents a voucher for a weekend trip to Møn for mother’s day, which they had decided to use on that glorious weekend in late August. Since I…

A Walk along Leitisvatn: The Most Beautiful Hike in the Faroe Islands

On our second day in Sandavágur, we decided to go to a place that I’ve wanted to see for ages. Ever since my friends Elien and Liam got engaged there in March 2015 and showed me pictures from this wonderful place, I’ve been dying to go there. The place that I’m talking about is Lake Leitisvatn – or Sørvágsvatn, depending on which side of the…

It was still early in the day when we decided to begin our 4th and last leg of the journey from Sund to Järsö and then finally back to Mariehamn, where we started our journey three days earlier. We actually had time to make it all the way to Järsö that afternoon, but we decided to save some of the journey for the next day,…

Åland Bike Journey – 2nd Leg: Eckerö to Geta

We had set the alarm to 7 AM, as we had to catch a bicycle ferry at 11 AM, which would take us across Snäcköfjärden from Skarpnåtö over to the tiny island of Hällö, where we could continue our journey to Geta, our destination for the second leg. The ferry dock in Skarpnåtö is located just 17 km. away from Öra, where we had camped…

Hiking in Howth: The Bog of Frogs Loop

For my last day in Ireland, I wanted to get out of the city and experience a bit of the stunning coastline. I chose to go to Howth, a bustling village located on the Howth Head peninsula just 15 km. from Dublin. There, I hiked 12 km. in beautiful surroundings, with fresh air in my lungs, birds flying high above me and the sun shining…

A Day Trip to Byron Bay

During my last week in Australia, I stayed with my friends Elien and Liam at Liam’s family’s house in Logan in between Brisbane and Gold Coast. Elien and Liam wanted to show me some of their favourite places in the area, so on the day after my arrival, we headed to Byron Bay, a famous beach town in the far-northeastern corner of New South Wales.…

My Whitsunday Islands Adventure

After spending two weeks in three big cities, it was time to experience another side of Australia. I headed to the Whitsunday Islands, where I stayed and partied in Airlie Beach, sailed around the beautiful islands and snorkelled in the Great Barrier Reef. I flew into Hamilton Island and caught a rather expensive ferry to Airlie Beach (50 AUD for 45 minutes of sailing). It…

Bondi Beach to Coogee Beach Coastal Walk

The Bondi Beach to Coogee Beach Coastal Walk is one of the most popular coastal walks in Sydney, taking you from the famous Bondi Beach to the more relaxed Coogee Beach. On my third day in Sydney, my Couchsurfing host Naufar and I decided to do the walk. When I came to Sydney, I knew that I needed to see Bondi Beach, as it’s hands-down…
