For the next month I’m going to be heading to four different European cities, on my stint as the first official…Continue
An attempt to beat the crowds at last year's international chocolate festival in Óbidos backfired on me. Having been warned that the town's narrow medieval streets would be teeming with families on Sunday afternoon, I decided to delay my visit until the following day, hoping things would be a bit calmer.
I arrived on Monday morning to find the town almost deserted except for gangs of cleaners busy removing sticky chocolate-smeared and cherry-stained rubbish from the gutters and…Continue
Last November I had the chance to visit the World’s End. Touristically speaking, the Argentinean city of Ushuaia is considered “the world’s end”. Nevertheless, some miles further south in the Chilean side is…Continue
Not exactly. In the words of Wikipedia, Ostalgie is a German term referring to nostalgia for aspects of life in East Germany. It is derived from the German words Ost (east) and Nostalgie (nostalgia).
Amongst other symptoms. The trouble is that visitors to Berlin can quite easily miss learning about the…Continue

I spent around 35 days in the USA on road trips in 2011.
A total of three trips: easter in Texas and New Mexico, summer on Route 66 from Chicago to LA (and back) and New years in Miami and Key west.
All great trips that expanded my horizon and provided an abundance of great experiences.
By far the best travel experience I had in 2011 was the night I spent in the Grand Canyon Caverns Suite on Route 66.
It is a hotel suite that has been set up 220 feet below the…Continue

At the time of tapping this out I’ve been living here in Trondheim, central Norway for the best part of 14 years. It’s been quite a roller-coaster ride as during that time I’ve got married, become a father to two children, learnt the language, worked in the restaurant business, started my own business, moved house untold times before finally having a home built here and settling in. Amongst other things.…Continue
If you’re looking for a fun weekend activity in the Swiss canton of Fribourg, The Fondue Train (or ‘Le train retro’ as it is known in French) may be just the ticket. It combines everything that’s admirable about Switzerland – impeccable organisation, a simple culinary concept, good wine and a picture perfect backdrop against which to enjoy it all.…Continue
Three weeks ago I flew from Newark, New Jersey to Tokyo’s Narita Airport. (If this were a facebook status update I’d simply say ‘EWR-NRT’, assuming such snark has not yet become passé.) It had been a while since I’d flown –six weeks almost – so it took no time for the incongruous wonders of air travel, like the…Continue
A bracing wind gushed into the narrow recess carved out of rocks, muddling the prayer flags, which had joined hands to cross the adjacent gorge. A cliff stood tall in front, cradling a monastery on its lap. A wave of chants cascaded from a distance soothing the mind into a trance. An artist’s fingers captured the stunning vista…Continue

1) Have you ever gone alone to a hotel bar in Paris, Seoul and/or Budapest and been mistaken for a hooker?
2) Do you have a luggage docking station in your home?
3) Do you always ask for extra pages when you get a new passport?

When one thinks of German cuisine, images of platters of pork sausages, fried potatoes, and saurkraut come to mind. The reality is not so far off though the above images are more associated with the southern German gastronomy. The city of Munich even offers…Continue
