In the evening at the last day of July I went to Jægersborg Dyrehave, north of Copenhagen, hoping to meet some deer. The area hosts more than 2.000 deer of 3 different species. This evening most of them seemed to be seeking for hideouts, so we only spotted a few Fallow deer and some birds. […]
I live in a terraced-house (in US a town house, in UK a terraced house, in New England row-house) and by this follows that we only have a small piece of land (240 square meters in total), so no large orchard or flowerbeds, but even a small garden can provide you with pleasures. I love […]
Almost 80 km from Copenhagen is a small town – Fakse (sometimes Faxe) – situated on top of a limestone quarry. I’ll not state that the town itself is worth the 45 minutes drive from Copenhagen, it looks like any other small town. But as limestone quarries are very few in Denmark it seemed like […]
I got the urge to document how Copenhagen look like when the city is in the state of lock down. So one morning I got up early, and went into the city centre to get some photographic evidence of the state of Denmark. Of course with the thought of sharing my experience with you. So […]
When someone mentions Hanoi, you probably think of a busy, noisy and hot city. But it can be different. I was in Hanoi in January 2020, around the Lunar new year and the 3 parameters above was not in play. First it was only around 15 degrees Celsius and it rained now and then. Second […]
Savannakhet or known under it’s official name Kaysome Phomvihane is the second largest city in Laos. It is said to have 120.000 inhabitants. Even though it’s large it seems small and quiet. I visited the town in January 2020, the dry season. We were told that it hadn’t rained since start of November and it […]
I’m not a fan of winter in the Nordic countries, temperatures will be dropping from comfortable to freezing and light seems to disappear. Currently sun will rise around 8:30 and go down again around 15:30, it should provide 7 hours of daylight. But the last 3-4 weeks the weather has not been helping the access […]
I took a stroll through Copenhagen harbour on Midsummers morning, just before the city woke. It’s a special experience to see the city with no – or rather very few – people. And when the weather shows it’s best side, sun, no clouds and no wind then you can get some amazing photos. I’ve just […]
How often do you actually see glass? Most of the time I don’t see the glass, I see whats on the other side, because modern glass – be it windows, camera lenses, spectacles – is clear an almost invisible. For specs and lenses they are even coated to avoid unwanted reflections in order to create […]
Just some shots from Copenhagen in early days of April 2019. Cherry trees are also blossoming and of course it is like a block buster. Crowds of people flock to the churchyard with the cherry alley, so it can be hard to get a shot of the trees or the flowers. If you want a […]
When you are visiting a city, either your home town or some foreign city you probably at some point in time want to enjoy a drink or snack, some body also take a smoke. What do you do with the packaging or leftovers? Off course, you take it to the nearest garbage bin, because you […]
On my way to La Palma I stayed a short while in the city of Madrid. Not a long stay, but I’m sure that I’ll go the for a longer experience in the future. Until then you’ll just have a few images.
Not so many words, but quite a few photos
A day in Pisa requires patience, as the city is crowded by visitors striving to see the main attraction – the leaning tower and the cathedral. Apparently many visitors only see the main attractions and skipping rest of the city. But I will suggest that you take time to see other parts of the city. […]
I enjoy traveling, some times it’s just a short haul for a weekend to a nearby city and some times it’s a long haul to a different continent for a longer duration. For all types of travel I like to share my experiences. So at this site you’ll find information about my experiences around the world. Only a few of my travels has been documented, but hope you enjoy what you find.
A nice stroll through the Deer Garden on the second last day of 2018 brought me some photos of the deer living there. Unfortunately the light was not as generous as one could hope, so ended up with ISO at 1600 which provides a little noise. Haven’t removed the noise as it would also remove […]
Going to Copenhagen, then I will recommend to come during April through September. The other part of the year has unpleasant weather and light. If you are interested in bringing home pictures of your visit, the winter half of the year do not assist you. Besides being cold, wet and windy it’s with low light. […]
I prefer to call the city Firenze, like the Italians do, and we do in Denmark. As many other Italian cities it’s is crowded by tourists, but a guide told us that if you come in November, January or February there will be few tourists. We did what you are supposed to do, visit the […]
A beauty full series of villages are found at the Mediterranean coast, the area is named Cinque Terre. It’s easy to take the hike along the coast, you just walk from one town to the other – don’t think you can get lost on the way. If you don’t want to walk back, you just […]
On the Western outskirts of Copenhagen you can find the forgotten Giants created by Thomas Damsbo. Here are my pictures from a trip to all 6 of the giants in the area.
Event though I live in the Copenhagen area I act as a traveler in my own region. So of course I’ll share information of sights and experiences in the Copenhagen area.
When you fly to northern Italy from Denmark Milan is the destination with the most flights and best prices, so as a Dane you are likely to start the journey in Milan. i did, and stayed in the city for a couple of days. First day we went to the city center to look at […]
I have traveled to Rome on 2 occasions, but have not documented the city and have not prepared to share my thoughts and experiences from it. But in 2018 I went to Tuscany and other parts of the northern Italy and will share those sites.
Even though the wall came down more than 28 years ago, it is still very present in the mind of Berlin and Berliners. In my opinion the memory of the wall and the terrifying regime need to be kept, because we need to secure that no country in Europe go onto that route regarding personal […]
I have visited this central European country on several occasions, but in the most recent 20 years I have only been to Berlin and Hamburg. With it’s proximity to Denmark it is an easy country to visit. First of all I can drive from home to Hamburg in 4 hours and Berlin in 6.30, so […]
One of the last days of April My wife and I went to Museum of Modern Art Louisiana. We saw pottery made by Picasso, quite interesting what he could do to ordinary pottery. However I did not take pictures in the exhibition, but later in the park I got some shots of the emerging springtime. […]
My wife and I spent the last hour before sunset and half an hour after by walking through the forest Jægersborg Dyrehave. The spring is evolving before our eyes, the leaves has appeared on some trees and are just about to do on the remaining trees, the deers has lost their antlers and are getting […]
During easter I visited my family in the northern Jutland, Good Friday I went to the beach. First type just after sunrise and second time in the early afternoon. The light was fine with blue sky on both occasions, but the wind was high, reducing comfort to a minimum. But I could bring home a […]
En tur i Jægersborg dyrehave er nem måde at komme ud i naturen, uden at skulle køre langt væk fra byen. Der er ofte mulighed for at opleve hjorte – der er flere arter i området – denne søndag mødte vi dog kun Sika hjorte. Alle billederne i galleriet er taget med Nikon D7200 og […]
The Iberá national park has, in my view, an overwhelming size. With it’s 13.000 km2 size it is almost a third of the size of Denmark. It is often described as wetland, and this with good reason. The area provides home for many species of animals specialized for living on the edge between wet and […]
