If it's on the map, I'll probably go there someday.
Hello and thanks for reading this. I'm Hakan, (old Swedish name with the embedded meaning 'he who is of a noble family').
The better part of my adult life I've spent in the advertising business. Today I mix strategic work with a little bit of writing and photography. I'm here because I am addicted to travel. I haven't been collecting countries but as I run a webpage, www.guidebook.se, I'm sometimes being asked questions like 'how many countries have you visited?'
Hence finding this website and filling this form out. With time I may climb the ranks, but experiences beat the crap out of numbers, if you ask me.
I know a little about Sweden, the UK, the US, France, Spain, skiing resorts and sub-Saharan Africa. If you're curious about those places, please don't hesitate to drop me a line!
