Direction Island, Cocos (Keeling) Islands. This uninhabited island has one of the best beaches I've ever seen. Cocos (Keeling) Islands is an Australian territory in the Indian Ocean with flights from Christmas Island and Perth. Add it to your list?
My Maldivian Adventures Continues. About to leave Palm Beach, Maldives @palmbeachislandmaldives after two nights. An awesome property with comfortable rooms, great staff and good food on a stunning island.
Ten Recent Properties Maybe some inspiration for some for the summer holidays? You can read about them all on my website in the near future. Photo 1: Fushifaru, Maldives. A stunning new Maldivian-owned resort (opened back in October) with beautiful villas, great service and good food. Mine had this view. @fushifaru Photo 2: Makunudu Island, Maldives. An authentic experience focusing on the natural experience. A unique design unlike any other of the 50+ resorts I've stayed in the Maldives. @makunudu Photo 3: COMO Cocoa Island, Maldives. One of the best resorts I've stayed here. The service is great, and the food is comparable with the best places I've stayed in the Maldives. @comococoaisland Photo 4: Hotel Pat Inn, Ogasawara. After approximately 25 hours by ferry, I arrived at Chichi-jima, Ogasawara and stayed at the beautiful Hotel Pat Inn where I stayed in a Japanese style room. A lovely and unique property I am glad to have discovered. @hotelpatinn Photo 5: Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort. I was back in Thailand for three nights and stayed at this 5-star resort with great value for money for a 5-star resort. Booking.com says "Prices for upcoming dates start at $93 per night" @outriggerresorts The next four properties are members of @smallluxuryhotels Photo 6: Petasos Beach Resort & Spa, Mykonos. My first visit to Mykonos. I liked the colours at the resort with great staff. @petasosbeach Photo 7: Canaves Oia, Santorini. This hotel has charming rooms, great staff, professional service, good food and stunning views. One of the best resorts I've stayed in this part of the world. @canavesoia Photo 8: St. Nicolas Bay Resort Hotel & Villas, Crete. Back in Crete after approximately 12 years! There's an exclusive private beach and some villas (including mine) have a private swimming pool. @stnicolasbay Photo 9: Columbia Beach Resort, Cyprus. Photo of the beautiful room view I had at this great resort. Out of the six properties I've stayed in Cyprus in my life, this this is the best! @columbia_beach_resort Photo 10: Kasteel Engelenburg, A great Dutch country hotel with charming rooms, friendly service and excellent food. @kasteelengelenburg
Back in the Maldives. Fifth visit. First night at the amazing COMO Cocoa Island, Maldives. One of the best resorts I've stayed here. Only 33 villas (all water villas) makes a difference. The design and attention to details are impressive. The service is great, and the food is comparable with the best places I've stayed in the Maldives. Having stayed at more than 50 hotels in the Maldives, I'm happy to say I have to update my top 10 list with COMO Cocoa included. New articles coming up soon on my website including one about @columbia_beach_resort where I had a great stay.
Probably my favourite sight in Denmark. Frederiksborg Castle, Hillerød, approximately 40 kilometers north of Copenhagen. Ad: Hotels30.com - Great Deals.
Probably the most famous sight of Denmark. Saw it for the first time in (I think) around 17 years earlier this year. Explored a lot of Denmark in the past months. Have you been to Copenhagen? If yes, what did you think of it?
Church of Our Lady in Kalundborg. One of the most impressive churches in Denmark. I have almost completed my Denmark Bucket List after travelling extensively here for the past months. Expect to travel to the Netherlands later this week.
Lots to do in 2018 2018 has started well with domestic travel and a major change to my blog, HenrikTravel.com. It is now both a travel search engine and blog. I have also changed my name on social media from Henrik Jeppesen to HenrikTravel.com for traffic purposes. I still have things to do on the site before I plan to focus on traffic, but I like it a lot already. Besides working on the blog, I am planning to leave Denmark and become a full-time traveller again later in the year. In the meantime, I have done some domestic travel including a return to Wake Up Aarhus, a great budget hotel in Aarhus, where I stayed a month last year. I've been surprised many times in my travels, and recently got a big surprise again. Hotel Thinggaard in Hurup, Thy (@hotelthinggaard) . Thy is the area of Denmark where I was born and grew up, but I had never visited Hotel Thinggaard until my recent visit. My room was comfortable with complimentary Wi-Fi, Tv, bed and standalone shower, but what surprised me was the dinner. It was better than several dining experiences I've had at Michelin-restaurants. The service was kind and professional, and the attention to details was unlike anywhere in or near Thy I have ever been. Different kinds of butter, bread, an impressive menu that change often and all at a reasonable price for this level of gourmet food. It was a bit like one of the @RelaisChateaux experiences I've had. Comfort in your room with amazing food as the highlight. Besides this, I also enjoyed my visit to Sydthy Kurbad (@sydthykurbad), a wellness centre with great facilities, a few minutes walk from the hotel. I will definitely return to Hotel Thinggaard in the future and share more about the experience on my blog soon. Photo 1: Gammel Estrup Manor, around 50 kilometres north of Aarhus, a beautiful place I visited a few weeks ago. Photo 2: One of the great dishes at Hotel Thinggaard. Photo 3: My room at Hotel Thinggaard.
Marselisborg Palace, Aarhus, the summer residence of Queen Margrethe II of Denmark since 1967. I recently stayed a month in Aarhus at the hotel, Wake Up Aarhus, a comfortable, modern hotel with a central location, free high-speed internet and rates starting as low as 400DKK per night. #traveldeeper #travelstroke #vacation #holiday #traveller #traveler #tourist #solotravel #getaway #travelblog #instago #travelpics #wanderer #travelphoto #travelingram #mytravelgram #travels #aroundtheworld #worldplaces #worldingram #travelbug #travelgoal
Update: Good to be back in Denmark - Lots to do After a good month-long stay at Wake Up Aarhus, I travelled to three new territories. Abkhazia, Guadeloupe and Montserrat in November and December last year. I am now back in Denmark with a lot of things to do after the trips. I want to get a book out this year about my journey to every country in the world and the 101 territories so far. Instagram allows up to 10 photos per post so I thought I would do a slideshow of some photos I didn't post on Instagram in 2017. Photo 1: View from Himmelbjerget, Denmark, approximately 40 kilometres from Aarhus. A photo I took last summer after my European road trip. Photo 2: The room I stayed for one month at Wake Up Aarhus, one of the best budget hotels I have stayed. Clean, comfortable, great location and excellent WiFi. Photo 3: Church in Abkhazia. Big thanks to @caucasus_explorer for showing me this territory. Tip: Cheap flights to Kutaisi (with @wizzaircom) around two hours drive from the border. Necessary to do online registration to visit Abkhazia, except a few passport holders with visa-free travel. Photo 4: Swimming pool with a view at Le Jardin Malanga @lejardinmalanga in Guadeloupe, one of the best places to stay there. For a review and more photos please visit my website. Photo 5: My room at Auberge de La Vieille Tour. Another good place to stay in Guadeloupe. Photo 6-10: The beautiful island of Montserrat. One of my new favourites destinations in the Caribbean with Saba, St. Barth and Dominica. #traveldeeper #travelstroke #vacation #holiday #traveller #traveler #tourist #solotravel #getaway #travelblog #instago #travelpics #wanderer #travelphoto #travelingram #mytravelgram #travels #aroundtheworld #worldplaces #worldingram #travelbug #travelgoal
Belmond Le Manoir Aux Quat'Saisons @belmondlemanoir - A member of @RelaisChateaux with 2 Michelin Stars @michelinguide Charming rooms, amazing food and great service.

Landgoed Het Roode Koper, The Netherlands. Manoir «Inter Scaldes», The Netherlands. Falsled Kro, Denmark. Relais Borgo Santo Pietro, Italy. Il Pellicano, Italy. To just name a few. #traveldeeper #travelstroke #vacation #holiday #traveller #traveler #tourist #solotravel #getaway #travelblog #instago #travelpics #wanderer #travelphoto #travelingram #mytravelgram #travels #aroundtheworld #worldplaces #worldingram #travelbug #travelgoal #theuk
Beautiful National Park Thy, near Stenbjerg. Visited recently and stayed at Stenbjerg Kro in a beautiful bungalow. Stenbjerg Kro focuses on local ingredients from the national park itself. Well worth a visit. @visitnordjylland #traveldeeper #travelstroke #vacation #holiday #traveller #traveler #tourist #solotravel #getaway #travelblog #instago #travelpics #wanderer #travelphoto #travelingram #mytravelgram #travels #aroundtheworld #worldplaces #worldingram #travelbug #travelgoal #travelgoals #travel #thy #stenbjerg #visitnordjylland #nordjylland #nationalpark
Memorial near the Abkhazia/Georgia border. Big thanks to Caucasus Explorer for showing me around. @caucasus_explorer Tip: Cheap flights to Kutaisi (with @wizzaircom) around two hours drive from the border. Necessary to do online registration in order to visit Abkhazia, except a few passportholders with visa free travel.
Montserrat. Last territory in the Caribbean for me. Big thanks to Gingerbread Hill, the highest ranked hotel in Montserrat on TripAdvisor for telling me about the Talamanca boat from Guadeloupe. I also stayed at the hotel for two nights and had a great time. It saved me a lot of money going with the Talamanca instead of flying via Antigua from Guadeloupe. It was a beautiful journey by the boat with friendly staff. You can find more info about the Talamanca at www.talamanca.fr Montserrat is a beautiful island with friendly people. I felt very welcome and would add Montserrat to my list of Caribbean favourites including Saba, St. Barth and Dominica.
French Guiana for the second time I have visited every country in the world with the next project being all the territories. Back in November, I visited both the capital of Cayenne and Kourou in my second visit to French Guiana in South America. I couldn't get a hotel sponsored, and other options were too expensive, so I spent the night in a cheap hammock in Kourou. Big thanks to Glenn, Oetsi Tours for showing me around, making this photo possible.
Another photo from my day trip to the island of Læsø. @visitnordjylland How to get there: 1. Ferry from Frederikshavn. Tickets: Laesoe-Line.dk Or 2. Seasonal flights from Roskilde and Anholt. Starting again on March 23rd. Tickets: Rutetaxa.dk
Day Trip to Læsø. Less than 2,000 people live on the small Danish island of Læsø, Nordjylland, Denmark. @visitnordjylland I decided not to bring a car to the island as it was much cheaper travelling without one. I managed to hitchhike twice and, despite the rain, take several good photos including this one.
Rubjerg Knude Lighthouse, Nordjylland. One of the best photos I've taken in Denmark. @visitnordjylland
