A CULTURAL TRAVELLER

Join me on travels 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 cultural highlights, 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 2 years of Corona and 1 year of cancer treatment has really been a challenge. 

You are welcome to contact me on thetravellingdane@gmail.com

WHY CULTURAL TRAVEL?

I’m a major in philosophy and arts, and I am curious about 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 did you know chocolate is eatable 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 and without internet. My first 2 trips were to Greece (before I was even born and right after), and I think my love for the country originated here.

HOW MANY COUNTRIES ?

So far: 45 countries covering 4 continents and 152 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 58/329

MY FAVOURITE TRIP

My favourite travel experience was last year, when I finally visited Pompeii – a place, I’ve always dreamt of. But the Silk cities of Uzbekistan is a very close 2. My top nature experience was going on safari 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…

45 COUNTRIES

152 UNESCO SITES

4 CONTINENTS

Travel Partners

1 My mom and sister (most frequently). Mostly European city breaks focusing on museums and food, but also the outdoors. With my 72 year old mom I also go backpacking.

2 Friends (a few times a year). 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 and/or boring travel dreams.
