A CULTURAL TRAVELLER

I travel all to learn more about the world’s culture and history! I want to inspire you to travel and to explore the world’s cultures, so hopefully we can bring about a little more understanding of each other.

To inspire you, find tips on the lesser known places, the history behind, museum musts and World Heritage sites.

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 if yo’re looking for the cultural sights and the historical background – you’re in the right place.

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 – 19 years old. My first trip was to Greece, and I think my love from Greece originated here.

HOW MANY COUNTRIES ?

So far: 44 countries covering 4 continents and 130 UNESCO sites. And the Arctic!

I’m counting the 195 UN member & observer states. If you use the Traveller’s Club map, then I’m on 55/327. 

MY FAVOURITE TRIP

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 hiking…

Travel Partners

1 My mom and sister (most frequently). 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 anymore.

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.
