Dakar, Senegal. The westernmost point of the African mainland, the business hub of the region, and a very pleasant city in general. Pictures from my trip to Dakar in May 2018 Read more! Oman, a fairytale straight out of 1001 Nights. A very different experience from the other, more abruptly modernized gulf monarchies. Oman has stayed true to Arab traditions and architecture almost throughout, and while the country has invested heavily in infrastructure, it has never done so at the expense of aesthetics. Read more! Warsaw, Poland. When I visited Warsaw in May 2017, it was my first trip there since 1991. To say that the city had changed, is an understatement. A small selection of pictures from around the city centre and the Old Town, taken with a Samsung S8+. Read more! Kinshasa, the vibrant and somewhat chaotic capital city of the DR Congo. With its wide boulevards, scenic riverfront and bustling atmosphere, this city is rising from the shadows of oblivion. Camera: Samsung NX200 (+some few pictures with a Sony Z2). Read more! Cape Town – a lovely little city on the southern tip of the African continent. Pictures from a quick business trip in 2005. Camera: Canon Ixus 300 Read more! A continent disguised as a country. Even scratching the surface of India could take a lifetime. My three weeks in northern India started with the wedding of my colleague and friend Deepak in Mumbai, before traveling to Delhi to meet my old college mate Salil. In the meantime, I took time to make stopovers in Udaipur, Jaipur, Agra and Varanasi. Camera: Nikon D70S Read more! The land of the Queen of Sheba, where coffee originated from, is once again a fast-rising star on the international stage, with one of the world’s fastest-growing economies. This proud country has remained fiercely independent for 3000 years. Except for the few WW2 years of tentative Italian occupation, Ehtiopia was never colonized Although some historians dispute the veracity of the claims that the actual Ark of the Covenant is kept in Ethiopia, this country has a incredibly rich history. Pictures from Axum taken in 2004. Most pictures from Addis Ababa taken in 2004, with some more recent ones taken in 2017. Cameras: Canon Ixus 300 (2004 pictures), Sony α6000 (2017 pictures) Read more! Egypt, land of the Sphinx, the Pyramids and the mighty Pharaohs. This is one place that never fails to capture one’s imagination. These pictures are from Luxor and Cairo, taken during Christmas 2004. Camera: Canon Ixus 300 Read more! Maputo – a calm, pleasant and temperate city, just a few kilometers away from South Africa. Another one of the places where I constantly travel for business, and where I have managed to bring my camera a few times. Read more! Andalucia in southern Spain. The only part of Europe with decent temperatures in December. My parents migrate there as climatic refugees during winter, and quite frankly, I prefer visiting them there for Christmas, than anywhere with a glacial arctic climate! Read more! Luanda, capital of Angola and the world’s most expensive city for expatriates. When I visited on a business trip in 2008, this city was already undergoing a construction boom that has intensified since. Fueled by oil money, Angola is on the path toward becoming an economic giant in Africa. Read more! A vibrant and somewhat chaotic city, where I lived for 1,5 years. As my friends and colleagues constantly cautioned me against travelling outside of Lagos, due to security risks, I never really got to explore this country much. Of the relatively few pictures I got, the ones I found worthy of sharing are from Benin City and Abeokuta. Read more! My cold and beautiful home country. My collection of pictures from Norway confirms the rule that the inhabitants of a country are the worst at appreciating its beauty. This little handful of pictures is by no means at all representative of what Norway has to offer. Read more! Hundreds of islands, thousands of beaches, and billions in debt. Macro-economics aside, most people travel to Greece for sun, sand and parties. That’s how I knew the country too, until I started working for a Greek company. As an expatriate sales person, my visits there are usually short and packed with work. Hence, I don’t get many chances to explore and take pictures. My handful of decently good pictures are therefore either old, or taken with a mobile camera. Read more! Burj Khalifa, Burj al-Arab, and the Louvre in Abu Dhabi. Spectacular skylines and wide highways are the best-known features of this federation of tiny, rich desert monarchies on the Arabian Peninsula. Read more! Kenya, my on-and-off home country since 2002, and now home to my family. Since I have quite few pictures from Kenya, I have set this one up as a separate portfolio of galleries. Read more! Zanzibar, the magical Spice Island in the Indian ocean, and the cradle of Swahili culture. Since my first visit, during Christmas and New Year’s Eve 2002, I have had a love affair with Zanzibar. The pictures here are from my trips in 2005 and 2013. Read more! Tallinn – Capital city of Estonia, featuring one of the best preserved Hanseatic old towns in Europe Read more!
