In times where most of us book our holidays online it is good to remember that travel agencies provide services on all levels. Enjoy!
Copenhagen Kastrup apparently is among the World’s best airports (which can be confirmed by personal experience) while SAS is one of the most punctual airlines. The latter I have my strong doubts about, but the average delay of at least one hour before my return flight to Hamburg gives me time to explore the airport in more detail on a regular basis. Now I’m not the sushi frutti di mare kind of guy, Continue reading
For those of you tired of commercialised global sports competitions, Greenland provides a fine alternative: The Greenlandic championships in football. Taking place in August each year this competition is a fine show of commitment and love of the game in sometimes adverse but always beautiful conditions. Continue reading
Finding the right work-life balance is a challenge in itself. And talking about work I wouldn’t limit my definition to my office job. Personally, I’d count watching football and having a bud to the “life” part, while “work” includes activities such as lawn mowing, doing the household (yes, we are a modern couple) and personal maintenance.

But taking a trip to Greenland is very much about aligning expectations with reality. Kangerlussuaq is a settlement with a population of 400 located at one of the most weather safe places in Greenland. This made it attractive for the US Airforce during hot and cold wars – and also to scientists and nature lovers later on. Plus, you can be pretty certain that flights from and to Copenhagen will not be grounded due to bad weather. Continue reading
