During the years we
have travelled not only solo but also with a wide range of close friends. Some of them are:
We have performed
several journeys with Hans in Europe, but also Indonesia, Malaysia, USA,
Canada, Thailand, Singapore, and Morocco. With Hans it always involves
mountaineering and diving, which is also our interest!
Hans has lived
for longer periods in Germany, Italy, Thailand, China, and the
Philippines in combination with studies and work. He is educated a
professional dive instructor and has climbed several
mountains and volcanoes in Europe, California, North-Africa, and
We have traveled
with TJ on treks in Sweden and Norway. Also, we visited him in Thailand
as he was living there. TJ has also lived in Australia, PNG and South
Africa, and currently resides in Paris, France.
In the future we
hope to do some maniac travels with TJ. Especially with regards to West
Africa, Madagascar etc. we’ll be in need of his fluent French!
We have traveled
together with Niels to Norway, Greece, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and
Thailand with focus on, for example, diving in Indonesia and
mountaineering in Borneo.
Niels is a keen
out-door enthusiast and especially enjoys long and remote treks in
temperate and arctic climates. Therefore, Niels has explicitly stated
that he wants to stay “in the North”, i.e. Scandinavia, for a
couple of years.
We hope that
Niels, once, will re-discover the “third world”, e.g. on a
mountaineering trip to Papua New Guinea together with the twins?

We have performed
sublime mountaineering together with Tom in Sweden and Norway, and
together with Tom we were educated divers in Thailand back in 2001.
During university studies we did a winter ascent of Mt. Tubkal in the
Atlas Mountains in Morocco as well as a shorter expedition into Sahara
near the borders with Algeria. Recently, we went to Turkey, Kurdistan and
Tom has been
living in Australia and Thailand where he worked as a diving instructor.
Together with Tom we have made a pact on mountaineering so as to climb at
least one high mountain every second year. Which one will be the next, Tom?
Cristoffer Myhre Præst
We have done
extensive travels together with Cristoffer in South-East Asia and the
Middle East. E.g. we spent 5 weeks crossing the Philippines and did
diving in remote locations; We did road-trips in United Arabic Emirates
and Oman; We crossed from India into Northern Pakistan & Kashmir,
went back to Delhi, and continued to Bhutan, Darjeeling and Sikkim.
If you are
planning a journey, Cristoffer is always easy to convince. Just mention
diving, mountains or third world regions and he’d already packed
his bag! Many journeys are yet to be realized together with Cristoffer. Recently,
we went to Turkey, Kurdistan and Iran together.
Interesting Danish travelers
Sure, Denmark is a small nation with only 5-6
million people, but almost everyone likes to travel. A lot of people have
praised the charter tourism waves, however, a core of intrepid travelers
