Travel for art, culture and history! Get tips on the lesser known places, the history behind, museum musts,  travel literature, unesco sites and nature experiences.

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


My name is Sara –born and raised in Copenhagen, Denmark (and yes, it’s “hyggIMG_1686eligt”). I get nervous, if there isn’t a ticket in my inbox.

So far: 40 countries covering 4 continents. In 2017 I was on 7 trips and visited 2 new countries. In 2018 I have so far visited 2 new countries: Egypt & Montenegro, but also went to Norway and Paris. Sarajevo and Warsaw in the pipeline…


I have been travelling, since I was 0 years old, but my wanderlust began in 1999. My first trip was to Greece, and I think my love from Greece originated here. I am a major in philosophy and arts, and I am curious of  different cultures and trying to understand other peoples point of view.

I studied philosophy and cultural studies with a focus on art. I also work at UNESCO site, and have worked in several Danish Museums. So the cultural sights and the historic background is of course, where my travel advice will point you to.


I travel with three different groups:

My mom and sister, my husband and son, and with friends. The long backpack trips and trips outside Europe is with my husband and son, who is diagnosed with a mild form of autism.. With my mom and sister I usually go on shorter city breaks with emphasis on museums and food  – great for leaving the mom-and-wife-identity behind. I never go alone. But neither my husband or my son wants to travel as much as me, so maybe I will…



Finally, I am not a good traveller, since I get carsick, airsick, trainsick and especially seasick. Occasionally I also get land sickness. I really should do more biking and walking trips…
