My Best Travel Moments of 2017

2018 is already here and that means that it’s time to reflect on the past 12 months of 2017! In the year of 2017, I’ve visited 14 countries and every one has given me many memorable experiences. Some of those moments have stuck in my head (and heart) more than others. As for my favourite new places in 2017, I wrote about that in an…

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…

Two Days in Sultan Eshkashim: A Taste of Afghanistan

For as long as I can remember, I’ve heard about Afghanistan in the news – and not for good reasons. It has always been a country that I’ve sworn not to travel to, at least until the Taliban had finally been defeated. But when Steve and I heard that it was possible to travel to the only safe area in Afghanistan from the GBAO in…

The Pamir Highway: From Osh to Karakul Lake

On the day that we got to Osh, we started researching about Tajikistan, as we wanted to make a move to the country the following day. We were originally going to head to Khujand, but when we read about how hard it was to travel through the Pamir Mountains in Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Oblast (the GBAO) in East Tajikistan, we decided to head there first, as…

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…

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…

Destination Gotland

After sailing for three hours from Nynäshamn on the Swedish mainland, I finally arrived on Gotland at 11.20 PM on May 1st, to the beautiful town of Visby, which is the main town on Gotland. The old Hanseatic city center of Visby is surrounded by a 3,4 km. town wall and is one of the best-preserved medieval towns in Scandinavia. It’s also represented on the…

16 Hours in Oslo

On my way to Longyearbyen, Svalbard from Iceland, I had a 16-hour stopover in Oslo. I arrived there at 5.00 PM on April 14th and left the following day at 9.00 AM. I had already decided that I was going to spend the evening sightseeing in Oslo, so after I had collected my luggage, I paid a small amount to have it stored at the…

Four Islands in Three Days

Ever since my trip to Sandoy, I’ve been eager to see more of the outer regions of Faroe Islands. Originally, I had planned on visiting Vágar, Fugloy, Svinoy and Suðuroy, but I only visited one of these places – Vágar. Elien and Liam had to leave Faroe Islands on Thursday, so Wednesday I thought I would go to Rigmors and Jens’ place to pick them…
