Cultural Travel

I travel for art, culture and history! Get tips on the lesser known places, the history behind, museum musts, travel literature, UNESCO World Heritage sites and nature experiences.

I hope you find some useful information and inspiration! Otherwise just ask…

About The Travelling Dane

WHO AM I?

My name is Sara –born and raised in Copenhagen, Denmark (and yes, it’s “hyggeligt”). I get nervous, if there isn’t a ticket in my inbox.

You can contact me on thetravellingdane@gmail.com.

WHY CULTURAL TRAVEL?

I’m a major in philosophy and arts, and I am curious of different cultures. I also work at UNESCO site, and have worked in several Danish museums. So the cultural sights and the historical background are of course what I will point you to.

MY FIRST TRAVELS

I’ve been travelling, since I was 0 years old, but my wanderlust began in 1999, when I went with a friend 3 months around China – only 19 years old. My first trip was to Greece, and I think my love from Greece originated here.

HOW MANY COUNTRIES ?

So far: 42 countries covering 4 continents. And the Arctic!

I’m counting the 195 countries acknowledged by UN so far. Maybe when I get to 100, I will start using a more precise system.

MY FAVOURITE TRAVEL?

My favourite travel experience in recent years was finally getting close to the pharaohs in their tombs and temples in ancient Thebes in Egypt. As I child, I even tried to learn hieroglyphs…

BONUS INFO

I’m not really a good traveller: I get carsick, airsick, trainsick and especially seasick. Occasionally, I also get landsickness. I really should do more biking and walking trips…

42 COUNTRIES

120 UNESCO SITES

4 CONTINENTS

Travelpartners

1 My mom and sister (mostly). Mostly European citybreaks focusing on museums and food. But we are trying to be more adventurous.

2 My husband and son (less often now). The long backpack trips outside Europe are with my husband and son. But my son is now diagnosed with autism & anxiety, so he doesn’t really want to travel, and this might change.

3 Friends (not as often as I like). Small European weekend trips.

4 Work (on the rise). Once a year, I go on 3-day museum group tour and a  UNESCO  seminar in a Nordic World Heritage site.
