Greetings from Trogir in Croatia

It’s kind of strange to be in Croatia at this time of the year. Most cafés, restaurants and hotels are closed, and there’s hardly anyone around. Apart from the locals […]

Bye-bye Faroe Islands

Don’t ask me what I liked the most about the Faroe Islands – I liked every single place we visited.  I especially enjoyed taking the helicopter, seeing seals swimming freely […]

We travelled from Torshavn to Fugloy by helicopter. Helicopter tickets can be booked and paid online https://www.atlantic.fo/en/book-and-plan/helicopter/travel-tips/ For only EUR 30, you’ll fly above several islands and be treated to […]

Sheep in the Faroe Islands

Suðuroy has it all…

I could give you a long list of reasons why I love the Faroe Islands. One of them is that you can travel around the islands by helicopter. How cool […]

300 cuddly huskies and a good coffee

It only takes about 25 minutes to get to the Villmarksenter from Tromsø. This is where you get off. You may need to ask the driver in advance because there’s […]

If you like hiking, Norway is the country for you. And if you come at this time of the year, you can hike 24/7 thanks to the midnight sun. I […]

Christian Radich in Tromsø

Last year when we were in Horta (the Azores) we visited the Christian Radich. We were very lucky because the captain himself showed us around the ship. So we were […]
