I have a passion for travel, history, culture, religion and language and I am always in the process of planning my next trip. In 2018, the trip goes to Dakar, Senegal.
My desire for adventure - whether I travel as a writer, expat, travel guide, exchange student or tourist - has taken me to over 30 countries on four continents. Among other things, I have jumped in a bungee jump at Victoria Falls, been on trekking in Kashmir, visited the desert city of Yazd in Iran, walked on the Great Wall of China, visited underground churches in Ethiopia and been on safari in Botswana.
Anita is a happy and adventurous soul - incurably infected with travel fever. A secondment in the United States was the starting point: here the beautiful, idyllic New England and the nature parks in the west hit her feet away from under her. Since then, she has been addicted to great nature experiences, which in addition to the United States have led her to Hawaii, Mexico, the Caribbean, Peru, Jordan, Norway and many other places in the world.
Do-it-yourself and active holidays are the preferred form of travel well helped by Lonely Planet, travel blogs and other online sources. In addition to nature, people are also a big part of the experience: "You often meet the most open, friendly and wonderful people along the way". Anita is a volunteer co-author RejsRejsRejs.
Anna le Dous
"He who says it is not possible should not interrupt the one who does it." It is a proverb that has followed Anna le Dous since Anna was carried up on the Great Wall sitting in her wheelchair. Anna has muscle wasting and is dependent on personal and practical help 24 hours a day. A staircase is as impossible for Anna to climb as Mount Everest is for many walkers. All of Anna's travels have taught her that a lot can be done if you are stubborn and keep your dreams. The more country borders she has crossed, the more she has moved her boundaries of what is possible. The excuses for not traveling can be many, but why not just drop them and throw yourself into the adventure? Anna is a member of De Berejstes Klub and has traveled in over 60 countries on 6 continents. She writes articles and lectures on traveling when you have a physical disability.
Anna is originally from Birkerød, but has now lived in Vesterbro for a couple of years, where she enjoys the countless cafés and good coffee. Her joy of traveling started already as a child, and still leaves a few times a year when her studies and finances allow. Anna's best travel destinations are Amsterdam, Bali and Vietnam, but hope to one day have the opportunity to experience New Zealand.

Anne Marie Simonsen
For Anne Marie, traveling is much more than a passion - it's a lifestyle. She grew up in a family that is spread all over the globe, so traveling and exploring the world has always been a natural part of her life. She has been afraid to fly and for a few years had to quench the urge to travel by traveling Europe thinly by train, but after traveling all over Bangladesh in small old local propeller planes, the horror is being cured.
Anne Marie has a very special fondness for Southeast Asia and West Africa, where she has lived and worked for a number of years, thereby getting very close to the locals. She always travels with her notebook and camera to capture local life in the best possible way.

Camilla has been used to traveling since a young age, and must travel at least once a year - but the more, the better. So far, most trips have been within Europe, except for a single trip to Dubai and a trip to Florida as a child, but she hopes to visit more continents as soon as possible.
On a daily basis, she studies Leisure Management in Roskilde, which is a study that i.a. focuses on tourism and experience economy. The role as a student does not generate much money for travel, which is why most travel so far has been within Europe.

Cecilie Saustrup Kirk

She has traveled most of her life and experienced everything from the romantic streets of Paris to Tokyo's electronic neon signs and Accra's scenic game parks.

Next targets on the list are Canada's magnificent waterfalls and Australia's colorful coral reefs

Jakob Linaa Jensen
In addition to my work as head of research in social media at the Danish School of Media and Journalism, travel is my overriding interest in travel. I have been to 102 countries on 7 continents and am always dreaming of new places. I am the vice president of the Travelers' Club, where I have been a member for 11 years and met a number of my best friends.
I have probably thought more about life than most, which has made me make some very conscious choices. For example, I have chosen children to devote myself to career, travel and enjoyment of life. I love discussing everything between heaven and earth with other lovely people, very much like over good food with appropriate drinks to.
Jens Skovgaard Andersen, editor
Jens is a happy travel nerd who has traveled in over 60 countries from Kyrgyzstan and China to Australia and Albania. Jens is educated in China Studies, has lived in China for 1½ years and is a member of the Travel Club. He has extensive experience with the travel world as a tour guide, lecturer, advisor, author and photographer. And of course most important of all: As a traveler. Jens often goes to places where it is also possible to watch a good football match in the company of other incarnated fans and has a special fondness for Boldklubben FREM, where he sits on the board. For most people it is obvious to look up to Jens (he is barely two meters tall), and then he is a 14-time champion in the TV quiz Jeopardy and still single, so if you can not find him out in the world or on a football stadium, you can probably find him out touring in the Copenhagen quiz environment.
The year says 2018 - age says 49 years - and 62 countries behind me - as well as a hell of a lot of cities.
I was 17 years old when I first traveled - a bus trip to Lake Garda - here I got lightning fast blood on my teeth for more and ended up in the travel industry 4 years later - where I was for almost 10 years.
The whims of charter hell became too much for me, I got tired of all the eternal questions and sought new heights for my working life. I therefore became a real estate agent, and today I work in the IT industry - which gives me financial benefits to constantly travel as I want.
Throughout my travels, I have always been preoccupied with taking pictures - I have not always had a common thread, but have gradually started to figure out what I would rather take pictures of than anything else.
In the last year I have tried to put words and pictures on my travels via a website where the idea started with just being travel in pictures - but have now started to make travel blogs as well - travel blogs that describe where we have traveled and how much it total travel has cost.
Why do I travel? Why not?
I love to travel, love to experience foreign cultures and experience a completely different world than the one I find myself in. Therefore, luxury travel is not the favorite either. We always only book the airline tickets, and then find out where we are going when we land - we typically stay at guest houses and hotels where this is not possible. Many people can probably overlook the small challenges associated with traveling that way - especially those with children. I myself have 4 children (14 years, 3 years, 1 year and 3 months) - so don't be intimidated by it - just do it. Because by doing so, you will also find that you can do more than you think on your own.

In recent years, however, he has learned to appreciate comfort and has become fond of the European capitals, and especially Berlin. It is mostly history, culture and nature that pull when Jesper packs his bag, and especially Cold War history he finds exciting.
Also the beach holidays have started to drag on. Most recently, he has been to Albania and Croatia, where the beaches are beautiful - and the water is crystal clear. He is studying to become a professional journalist and has a small dream of one day working with journalism outside Denmark's borders.

Kirsten K. Kester is a Copenhagener living in Aarhus with her West Jutland husband.
Together they have traveled for more than 25 years.
Kirsten is also an artist and has exhibited both in Denmark and several places abroad, including Berlin, New York and Mexico. Kirsten writes about travel and art in his own way blog, on Facebook and Instagram.
Kirsten is on the unpredictable journey where she does not follow the other tourists on her heels. The Great Wall of China, for example, is only experienced in the far western corner of China and not in Beijing. As some of the first tourists, Kirsten and her husband traveled in 1992 by train through a Soviet Union that had just been disbanded and replaced by new independent republics.
Both Kirsten and her husband prefer to travel on land rather than in the air. They take time for whatever environment they may be in, and visit with equal joy new as well as already visited countries.
Since she was quite young, Kirsten has challenged herself and others on various journeys, especially because she is in a wheelchair. The challenge is probably greatest for others, as Kirsten has long since got used to a life in a wheelchair. For Kirsten, most things are ridiculous; it is for her about will spiced with a bit of imagination. Others often let doubt get in the way and see obstacles rather than opportunities.
Since May 2014, Kirsten has also struggled with prolonged concussions, which has posed greater challenges than she has ever experienced as a disabled person in a wheelchair. Travel during this period has been more limited, but travel - she wants to.

Experiencing new cultures, unique nature and different societies, where people live very differently from life in Denmark, is what drives my desire to travel.

I have most recently been to France, Brittany to be exact. France is generally a favorite destination both in summer and in winter. However, I would add that the coolest place I have visited has without a doubt been Vietnam.
When I travel, I also love exploring the food culture of the different countries. I find eating food at restaurants / kitchens that you would not normally do, very interesting.

Marianne loves her job as a travel consultant and being allowed to share experiences and knowledge about countries and places she herself is passionate about. Work has expanded the travel horizon further and provided unforgettable memories in the luggage from Ecuador and the Galapagos, Chile and Easter Island, Greenland, China, South Africa and much more. A stay in Nepal as a volunteer at an orphanage is also among the fondest travel memories.

They have practiced yoga in the rice fields of Bali, on a sacred cliff in the United States and along the canals in Stockholm.

She therefore also shares tips on where to find the best ice cream parlors in the world and the most colorful street art.
If you also prefer small, quirky and aesthetic accommodations, her blog posts and travel articles are worth a look.
Martin is a traveling journalism student with a great love for Africa and South America. He is a former graduate of M.Sc., and the long summer vacations were spent exploring distant parts of the world.
I am a modern nomad who travels the world in my VW California Coach 'Turtle', together with my good friend / boyfriend / travel partner, Morten. Together we run the travel blog Turtle Time. We travel without fixed plans and stop to explore an area when we encounter an exciting place. We take things at our very own quiet and calm pace, and are not in a hurry to achieve anything particular.
We make a living by telling about our travel experiences (articles, lectures, etc.), by seasonal jobs around where we arrive, and by my company www.mettefuglsang.dk, where I help clients with a problematic relationship with food via telephone therapy sessions.
I write about big and small travel experiences, about everyday moments on the go, about the challenges of living two people in very little space, and yes, everything else. I hope you will read along and let yourself be inspired.

Paloma's desire to travel started early, as her parents did not wait long to take her on countless trips to Brazil. The passion for the country's amazing nature and huge cultural diversity remains great and has made Paloma educated in Portuguese and Brazilian studies.

Sascha is a Jew with his legs planted firmly in the relatively green Frederiksberg soil. As a child, it was on camping trips in Denmark in the summer spiced with slightly more exotic winter destinations. Today, Sascha is bitten by a crazy trip, and can neither collect enough stamps in the passport nor have booked enough trips. There are always at least two trips planned.
Sascha's favorite places in the world count everything from Canada to New York, Botswana and Munich. To put it mildly, there are few places in the world that Sascha does not dream of going to.
Saskia Lawson Gern
When Saskia was 3 years old, she was put alone on a plane from Sweden to France, and she has been bitten by traveling ever since. Saskia loves to discover new countries through their food and music culture. Therefore, she always has at least one pair of dancing shoes in her bag, and it is more likely that it is her nose that guides her around than that it is a city map.
Stefan has traveled a lot since childhood - often in France with his Francophile parents. After the student cap was secured, the typical European cultures were replaced with a major excursion with 16 different country visits in just under 5 months, which included Western Europe and Southeast Asia.
Since then, most of the savings next to the study are spent on travel - often to more foreign cultures for cheap money, such as Eastern European destinations can offer. The travel bucket list is almost endless, but travel to Latin America and distant Pacific islands is particularly highly valued.
In addition, Stefan studies Media Science in Odense, loves sports and has probably seen a little more movies and TV series than what is healthy.

He has a special fondness for pristine destinations and always has a great adventure ready on the drawing board that he wants to live out. The publisher Mellemgaard publishes a book about Sune's cycling journey from Denmark to South Africa 'No food for the lazy man'. The book offers detailed anecdotes from the cycling journey and at the same time tries to depict African living conditions and rules of the game based on the people Sune met on his journey.

Web designer and travel blogger, Trine Handskemager's work simply requires a camera, a computer and an internet connection. This allows her to live life as a digital nomad and to work while on the go.
Many of Trine's trips are solo trips that are booked spontaneously a few days before departure. The backpack is packed quickly, because she only travels with hand luggage. Also on the long trips. The family comes along as often as possible when permanent work and education need to be taken care of. The destinations are many, and they may provide experiences that go deeper than a beach holiday.
Sri Lanka has so far become the country she has traveled the most in. It is a country with mountains, rainforest and beaches, culture, nature and wildlife. And then it's a country that keeps surprising. On Trine's blog miss-world.dk has she i.a. a big theme about Sri Lanka and an associated Facebook group, for Danes, Swedes and Norwegians who are going to Sri Lanka on holiday or who are permanent residents down there. But it is certainly not the only country on the blog that is filled with pictures of wildlife, beautiful nature and a lot of palm trees.
You can follow Trine's travels on her facebook page: https://facebook.com/MissWorld.dk/
