"Short stories and travel reports from my life adventures around the globe".


Travel USA

I fell in love with America as a kid when my parents took me to Florida for the whole Disney shebang. We went not once but three (!) times and they were the definitive highlights of my childhood. While I’ve never actually lived in The U.S., I’ve always hugely enjoyed my visits, mostly as a tourist, but also for work in my previous life interviewing Hollywood stars.

Looking back on my American adventures, I now have a wealth of incredible memories: Proposing to my fiancé atop The Empire State Building, tracing Ferris Bueller’s footsteps around Chicago, hanging with shades of Streep and Eastwood in rural Iowa and shooting some shit with the Elvis crazies at Graceland. There’s still so much more I want to do of course, but until then you’ll have to settle for my articles on:
