I am a (mostly) solo traveller, who enjoys near and faraway places, big cities and the middle of nowhere. I am from Senja, an island in the beautiful Arctic Norway, but now I live in Oslo. My goal is let you know some of what is out there to explore, and hopefully inspire you to take the (solo) plunge as well 🙂 I also want to keep this blog fairly short and sweet. That means, I would like this to be a place for you to find enough information to decide whether or not you want to visit the city, sight, restaurant etc. in question, but still leave some for you to experience once you’re there. Don’t want you to feel like you’ve seen it all already, and take away the pleasure of discovering it yourself 🙂 However, if you need more input on places I’ve been, leave a comment, and I’ll help you out as much as I can. Thanks so much for stopping by, and travel lots and safe!

To get to know me a bit more…
I was given the Liebster Award, and here are some answers to the questions I was asked in that regard:
What made you decide to blog about travel?
Travelling is one of my great loves. That’s when I feel alive.
What sort of things do you do to prepare for your next travel destination?
I plan ahead as much as possible, so I don’t have to spend my time on the road looking for hotels, plane tickets, etc. I can just enjoy the ride.
How do you choose your next travel destination? Is it a well thought-out decision, or are you the kind of traveler that just picks a place randomly?
The destinations these past years have been decided long in advance, as I wanted to visit all regions of the world. Now that that is accomplished, I have no idea what I’ll be doing next. Whatever I feel like, I guess.
What are the 3 things you MUST have in your travel bag?
Camera, phone, credit card, passport. That’s four things 🙂
What is one of your top travel memories?
Hiking the Wudang Shan in China.
Multiple choice: I usually stay at: (a) hostel, (b) Bed & Breakfast, (c) airbnb, or (d) hotel?
Whatever fits my budget, and looks clean and safe. Location is also important.
Travel binging – yes or no? Would you rather see a ton of cities in one trip, or do you prefer to stay longer in one place and move around less?
A mix. See as much as I can in one trip, but not rush it.
List 3 books (or movies) that have inspired you to travel.
Geography class at school, and my atlas – old school 🙂
Do you prefer to travel solo, with a partner, or in groups?
After travelling solo in the past few years, this is what I now prefer.
What advice would you give someone who has never left their own country, but wants to travel?
Go! Bring your common sense, and you’ll be fine.
