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…

Dushanbe: The Grand Capital of Tajikistan

On the epic flight from Khorog to Dushanbe, Steve and I met two new friends, Colby and Mike, who were both expats in Dushanbe at the time. They arranged for us to stay with their friend Monet for a night in Dushanbe, which was really lovely of them. Monet is also an expat in the city and was house-sitting for the night in a lovely…

Osh: An Insight Into the Divided Ferghana Valley

The Ferghana Valley is a densely populated valley in Central Asia, located between the Tian Shan Mountains in the north and the Alai Mountains in the south. The valley is divided between Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan, three countries of the former Soviet Union. It’s 300 km. long and 150 km. wide and is inhabited by over 10 million people.

Never Get Lost: GPSmyCity App Giveaway

Whenever I travel to a new country, I always make sure to check out its capital and other cool cities. I’m generally a genius at getting myself lost, so I always use a city guide app whenever I go sightseeing. My favourite city guide apps are from GPSmyCity, which provides city walking guides, inspiring articles about the cities from thousands of bloggers (including me!) as…

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…

Four Hours in Belfast

Both Bethann and I had been told by several people that Belfast is a must-see on the British isles. Despite us being tired from celebrating New Years the night before, we decided to go on a day trip to Belfast on January 1st. The bus ride from Dublin took just over two hours, and since we didn’t leave till 12 PM, we only had about…

My Last Week: Brisbane and Beyond

Brisbane, the third largest city in Australia and the capital of the state of Queensland, was my last destination on my one-month trip to Australia. Brisbane is a city that I’ve wanted to visit for ages, mainly because of my love for Black Milk Clothing. In order to explore as much as possible in and around the city, I chose to spend an entire week…

Living It Up in Sydney

You can’t go to Australia without visiting Sydney, people say. As the biggest city in the country, there are countless opportunities and things to explore in and around the city. I spent five beautiful days there and I was never bored! Even though the size of the city is way too big for my liking, I really enjoyed my time there, seeing as Sydney is…

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…
