I like to travel in a local and authentic way. Besides visiting the main tourist attractions, I focus on off the beaten track locations and also a lot of outdoor adventures. I like to interact with locals to discover the best local places to visit and pick a festival to blend in the culture.

My first trip out of Europe was to Peru. This gave me the travel virus. Since then I am trying to make optimal use of my available travel time, and I have visited already more than 30 countries over the world in the last 10 years.

The Henro Trail to Mount Koya (Koya-san). Normally tourists would take the cable car. However it is way more impressive if you walk the Henro path, visit various temples on your way.

Budget trips, outdoor/adventure trips, cultural trips, food market trips, road trips.
