BEHIND THE SITE

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. I have a husband and a son, who is diagnosed with a mild form of autism.

So far: 39 countries covering 4 continents. In 2017 I was on 7 trips and visited 2 new countries. In 2018 I have so far visited a new country: Egypt and have Norway, Paris 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 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. 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…
