She is wild, she is smart, she is strange, she controls me most of the time if not all of the time, and never can I have a single reaction or feeling without her approval.  I can’t even blink at him without her being aware, and when comes that time of the year when I…

Relaxed and comfortable in our quiet apartment in Borgo Garibaldi. The owner mentioned to us that the agriturismo that runs the palazzo next door also has a restaurant, only open on the weekends. “You should make a reservation”, she said, “but I think they are catering a wedding this weekend so,…I don’t know!?” The restaurant…

If the world is a book, then those who do not travel have only read a page. My urge to explore new lands and seek knowledge led to my visit to the Osun-Osogbo sacred groove. When conducting research on where to visit to know more about the treasures in the Yoruba culture, I heard of…

When I decided to go backpacking for a year after I completed my degree at university, little did I know that the course of my life would change forever… I was young, naïve and cocky – there was certainly an element of already thinking I knew the way of the world. I also thought I…

When people ask me what my best travel tip is, it is hard to narrow it down to just one. The same goes when I am asked about my favorite place in the world. I love so many places, and living between my hometown Copenhagen, Berlin and NYC, it’s simply impossible to pick. Back to…

This is a lovely spot to spend a few hours in the early evening, watching the Sun set and seeing the birds coming in…

The hike takes what seems like months to achieve. We sometimes encounter highland cows, maybe fall over a couple of trees, and once lost our picnic to a roaring river. I had even been pushed in into a bog and forgotten for half an hour when I was smaller. But the mud, hunger, heart-stopping moments…

As John Muir put it so succinctly “in every walk in nature one receives far more than he seeks.” People love being outside, enjoying what nature has to offer – simply being in the fresh air in your neighborhood park for a short while does wonders to lift your spirits, photographers, bird watchers, naturalists, hikers,…

Zermatt The scenery very suddenly changed in front of me, from the French lowlands to the snowy, irregular Alps of Switzerland. It seemed that we were already low, and before I knew it, the crevasses and valleys engulfed us, we landed. I made my way out, dreading the 4-hour drive from Geneva to Zermatt, but…
