137 - Welcome to Sri Lanka

Almost ten years after the end of its civil war, Lonely Planet has named Sri Lanka as the best country in the world to visit in 2019. And this is where we’re heading in this and the next few episodes. I’m taking a small detour from my episodes from Africa, to bring you something that happened very recently. If you were waiting to hear what happened to me at the hospital in Cape Town – and everything else at the southern tip of Africa, don’t worry. It will be out after this detour. But in...


136 - The Worst Day in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

This episode is about the second half of my one full day in Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia. As you might remember from the latest episode, the first half of the day was amazing. I landed in the middle of the biggest religious celebration of the year and went for a drive around the city with a local guide. When I got back I got a text message from my doctor that makes me think I only have a few more months left to live. And as if my mood wasn't bad enough I finish the day of by...


135 - The Best Day in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

When I left you on my African journey, I was in Conakry, Guinea, in the western part of Africa.

ROUGH TRAVELING It was from Fez in the northern part of Morocco to Rabat, Casablanca, Marrakesh, Tiznit, Tan-Tan. Then back to Tiznit when I needed to go to the hospital, down to Dakhla in Western Sahara, Nouakchott in Mauritania, Dakar in Senegal, The...

129 - Interview: Adventurous Kate

She calls herself Adventurous Kate for a reason. On her blog she shares stories of the time she was an extra in a really, really bad German movie, when she got naked in public and took a boob to the face in Istanbul, when she hit on Jon Stewart in New York City, which subsequently got her mocked on The Daily Show, and in this episode, Kate will talk about the time she was shipwrecked in Indonesia.

124 - Massive Detour to Get to Guinea

Friends told me that going overland into Guinea could easily get me held up by the police for no other reason than they wanted a bribe. So they recommended that I went all the way back to Dakar in Senegal and take a flight to Conakry. They also said that they didn't really like the country. Would I have a different experience? I met some of the locals, and in this first of two episodes from Conakry, you can meet the first one. It's Tim, a French expat who likes the country a...


123 - Saving Children in Guinea-Bissau

Guinea-Bissau is one of the poorest countries in Africa – and hereby the world. I travel with minibus from Cap Skirring to the capital Bissau, and by random coincidence my host is a countryman.

120 - Heading from The Gambia to Senegal

I've been to Senegal before, but that was in Dakar in the northern part of the country. After a week in The Gambia in the middle of Senegal I'm heading further south to the beach town, Cap Skirring in the southern part of the country. Before I leave Banjul, I talk to the Polish hostel-owner, Marek about how he ended up right here after years as a full-time traveler. On the trip down to Cap Skirring I travel with another Danish guy, Alex, who just happened to go the same way. I enjoy Cap...
