Climate

Back in 1987 the UN Brundtland commission – headed by Norway’s former prime minister Gro Harlem Brundland – released the report  “Our Common Future”. To me as a young man it revealed a series of connections within the climate system, the ecological system and the political system – it also contained some views on the […]

Norway

I have traveled to Norway on a few occasions, first time in mid seventies and latest in the summer 2017. The pages about Norway is from my visit in 2017.

The road from Kristiansand to Stavanger

The road from Kristiansand to Stavanger can either be taken on the high way E39 or you can take a detour along the Atlantic coast. The length of the drive measured in kilometers are not significant but the road along the coast will in pure driving time cost you an extra hour. It’s 257 Km […]

Saab Museum

You might be familiar with the Swedish company Saab (Svenska Aeroplan Aktiebolaget) which for years produced cars with the same name as the company. During my childhood the cars was often ridiculed, especially on behalf of the earlier models popping noise from the two stroke engine. But the jokes overlooked the fact that Saab often […]

Sweden

Sweden is the country i have traveled the most times to. Most of the occasions has been single day trips to Malmö or Göteborg, but for some occasions I have visited Sweden for several days. Travel in Sweden is easy to me as I understand and speak Swedish.

A Walk Along the Beach

During my summervacation i went for a short walk along the beach in nothern Jutland. The weather had improved dramatically since yesterday, it wasn’t raining today 🙂 So it was safe to bring out the camera for at few shots of the beach. If you want to experience this particular beach yourself you can easily […]

Kep

Kep is both a municipal and a province on the south coast of Cambodia close to the Vietnamese border – my phone went to Vietnamese networks on several occasions while we stayed there. To go to Kep you can get a mini van from Phnom Pehn, and 4 hours later your in Kep. Our trip […]

Prasat Preah Vihear

When you are traveling in Cambodia this temple seems to be quite of the straight road to anywhere. To be honest it is a bit remote. But bear in mind that the temple is appointed as UNESCO world heritage, so it has a major place in history for the area, so in my humble opinion […]

Stung Treng

A sleepy province and town were the rivers Mekong and Sekong meets. The main event in and around town seems to be the Mekong river and the Irrawaddy Dolphins living near the border towards Laos. We hired a boat and sailed 3.5 hours north in hope to spot some of the dolphins. We did actually […]

Cambodia

As I expected the weather in Denmark to be bloody awful in January I opted out for that month at home. In 2017 January were spent in The Kingdom of Cambodia. On the pages in this section you’ll find photos and experiences from my visit in Cambodia. I find Cambodia very similar to Myanmar, of […]

Stir fried vegetables

An easy to make course with inspiration from Asia. The below recipe is adequate for a full meal for one, so just multiply to serve more. 2-3 cm Ginger 2-3 Garlic cloves 1 tea spoon Chilli 1-2 tea spoon Cumin seeds 1 Medium Onion 125 gr Tofu 2 small Carrots 100 gr Mushrooms 100 gr […]

Before sunrise

I have for years been thinking of a photo. I have been knowing how to take and when on the day, just before sunrise. As you might know most of the year the sun comes up pretty early in Denmark. And during week-ends I do not tend to be an early riser, and I like […]

Asian inspired dish with prawn

As I’m going to Asia in the near future I would like to prepare my taste and digestion system to Asian cooking (not that they have been unaccustomed to Asian food). So during the day I made up a recipe that I’m quite sure has no specific root in one single Asian  kitchen, but inspiration […]

Bagsværd Sø

I went to Bagsværd Sø in hope to get a good view of the sunset. It was official 3 degrees, but a little wind made it rather nasty to be there. After 40 minutes my hands were frozen, despite gloves. As you might see on some of the photos the lake was already beginning to […]

Myeik

The port of Myeik provides the access to the archipelago which I think is the most valuable element from the city. The city is situated on the coast of the Andaman Sea, just north of the Tanintharyi River. To get to Myeik you must either come by bus or by plane. From north you’ll have […]

Hpa-An

Hpa-An is situated in the Karen state were it is the capital. It is in the northern part of the south Myanmar. Even though it is the state capital and has approximately 75.000 inhabitants it feels like a small city. The houses are lower than what you find in Yangon and Mandalay, most only 2-3 […]

Zoo

[BMo_scrollGallery id=31 sG_thumbPosition=top sG_images=1 duration=slow gallery_width=800 gallery_height=555 thumbs_width=150 thumbs_height=150 sG_caption=1 sG_start=0 sG_loop=0 sG_loopThumbs=1 sG_clickable=1 sG_opacity=60 sG_area=20 sG_scrollSpeed=0,1 sG_autoScroll=0 sG_aS_stopOnOver=1 sG_diashowDelay=0 sG_followImages=1 sG_responsive=1 ] Var med NNIT på aftentur i Zoo, benyttede lejligheden til at tage nogle enkelte billeder af dyrene, både de vilde og de indespærrede.

Bilkirkegården i Ryd

Pinselørdag tog vi på en ekspedition til Småland, ikke for at se på Emil eller Lönneberg, men for at se på bilvrag der er ved at ruste op i en gammel tørvemose. Hovedformålet med turen var at fotografere bilerne, for når der er løv på træerne og lidt sollys er der mulighed for at lave […]

Bago

The city is located 80 km north east of Yangon, by train it takes 2 hours to get from Yangon to Bago and approximately the same by bus. I took the train from Yangon, it went at 8.00 AM and was leaving on time. It had one stop before we arrived to Bago. The landscape […]

Hsi paw

Hsi Paw is placed in Shan State where it is the principal town. An easy way and quite interesting way to get there is to take the train from either Mandalay or Pyin Oo Lwin. I recommend to take the train from Pyin Oo Lwin, because the train takes 4 hours from Mandalay to Pyin […]

Golden Rock or Kyaikhteeyoe

When we were planning our tour to Golden Rock it was difficult to find precise guidance how to get there. The confusion comes from places that have similar names. The town Kyaikto which is situated in the lowland, if you take the train from Yangon you have to get off the train here. Then you […]

Dawei

Dawei is situated in the southern part of Myanmar. In January 2016 the route from Mawlamyine to Dawei was serviced by a standard 12 meter bus with a long history, but the approximately 310 km is travelled in only 8,5 hours. At this time the bus came from Yangon and stopped in Mawlamyine around 1800 […]

Pyin Oo Lwin

Pyin Oo Lwin is located 40 km north-east of Mandalay, the easiest way to get there is to buy a seat in a shared taxi. When we took the trip it took almost 2 hours from we started near the train station in Mandalay until we arrived at Pyin Oo Lwin city center. Almost 45 […]

Ngwe Saung Beach

When you have left Europe during the winter you are likely to long for summer, I do. With summer I think of a visit to a beach to swim in the ocean. Myanmar provides several opportunities to do so. I have found that Ngwe Saung Beach is a lovely spot for recreation. You find an […]

Chin Villages

When you are in Mrauk-U you’ll have the opportunity to visit the Chin Villages. The most remarkable thing about the Chin villages is that until around 1972 women at the age of 16-17 were tattooed in the face. The tattoos are rather characteristic and as I understand the tattoos are unique for each village. What […]

Shwe Taung Pagoda

The Shwe Taung Pagoda is the best place in Mrauk-U to watch the sun rise. The temples is located on one of the highest hill tops in Mrauk-U and it has a free view all over the area. To find it you must go by the road out of town towards Magdwe, just after you […]

Temples

Some calls Mrauk-U for little Bagan. The area is much smaller than Bagan and it holds fewer temples and sights than Bagan. Temples in Mrauk-U is not the same style as in Bagan, they seems heavier build. The first Europeans in Burma actually mistook the temples for fortresses because of the heavy look. While the […]

2016

I’m visiting Myanmar for the third time in January 2016. This time I will travel to parts of Myanmar I have not visited earlier. Point of entry will still be Yangon, during my earlier visits Yangon have been like a hub I have been passing from and to other destinations, this time we will leave […]

2015

I revisited Myanmar in January 2015, the visit included both places I had visited in 2013 and new places. I arrived at Yangon International Airport at January 1 2015 and left again on January 26. The visa application process for this visit was with the e-visa, which had been implemented during autumn 2014.  The e-visa […]

Leaving Mrauk-U (or getting there)

Of course you can take the boat back to Sittwe and a plane from there. It’s straight forward, but it will set you back $130-200 per person. We wanted to try something different and we had previously with success taken a local intercity bus. After some research on the internet – prior to our trip […]
