With a university degree in Business Economics, working internationally for Danish companies for many years, I have been able to get to know a lot of countries very well. This has been combined with a curiosity to know further “off the beaten track” places during my holidays and several sabbatical years.
I have been on a horse trip in Mongolia, in mud in the Brazilian Panternal, on a bicycle 2000 km in China, trekked in the Himalaya, sailed in the Amazons, been part of a camel caravan going 800 km from Timbuktu in Mali to the salt mines in the hart of Sahara, where life is incredibly hard for the men living there – and much much more.
I normally travel alone which gives me better opportunities for getting in contact with the local people. The contact with people is what really fascinates me when travelling. A good knowledge of French and Spanish facilitates my contacts with the people in many places of the world.
I am now retired and have plenty of time for travelling. The last years I have returned to Latin America – after many years where I mainly travelled in Africa. It is like coming home. I have been on the North Pole as well as the South Pole(exactly 104 years after Amundsen, december 15 th 2015)
My Favorite Places:
The Sahara, Mali, Latin America, in particular Brazil and Guatemala, Bhutan and Etiopia
