Madrid, Cardiff, Odense

My passions are:

  • Writing
  • Urban Exploration
  • Hockey
  • People
  • Travelling

I love my city because: It's buzzing and still with an authentic feel. Everything seems possible here and the opportunities are ever-changing. There is always something going on - and the amazing weather makes for a casual lifestyle and outdoor activities.

My idea of a great trip is: A great trip is where you really get to feel the soul of the city and how life is like living there. What are the locals proud of, where do they go to and what makes them feel at home in their city.The perfect trip has to include a bit of everything. From sights to shopping. From going out to just hangig out. And of course good food and drinks.Something for all your senses!

I have travelled to: So far I have 'only' had the pleassure of experiencing Europe - but have done so in many ways and in most of the major capitals. I have been road-trippin', camping, InterRailing, flying and been on a cruise.I have visited Paris 13 times and I have lived in the Welsh capital Cardiff. I have been many places, between skiing in Norway and parasailing in Turkey.
