A CULTURAL TRAVELLER

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

I will guide you to 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, so Corona has been difficult. On top of that I just got through breast cancer, so no normality here. 

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 World Heritage Site, and have worked in several Danish museums. So if you’re looking for the cultural sights and the historical background – you’re in the right place. And di you know champagne is drinkable cultural heritage?

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 145 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 56/328. 

MY FAVOURITE TRIP

My favourite travel experience in recent years was finally getting to visit Pompeii – a place, I’ve always dreamt of. Top nature experience were 2 safari trips in Zimbabwe.

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…

44 COUNTRIES

145 UNESCO SITES

Travel Partners

1 My mom and sister (most frequently). Mostly European citybreaks focusing on museums and food, but also the outdoors.

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

3 My husband and son (less often now). The long backpack trips outside Europe were with these guys. But my son is now diagnosed with autism & anxiety, so he doesn’t really want to travel anymore.

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

5 Myself (on the rise). A new thing brought on by not being able to travel with husband and son and friends with busy lives.
