NEXT STOP: Minsk!I have no idea what to expect. When I ask fellow Danish travel bloggers about Minsk, they have no clue of what to see or do. Maybe it's because in 2016 there were only 88,200 tourists in Minsk (tourists who bought travel services from Minsk organizations). Of those tourists 76% were Russians. However, Belarus' president Lukashenko changed the visa rules this year, which allows Europeans and Americans to visit Belarus for 5 days without having to apply for a visa in advance. It's definitely not easy to plan a trip to Minsk. Tripadvisor and and Lonely Planet all recommend the same things as the usual museums, parks and gardens, and monuments. Obviously, I'll be seeing this when I get there. But getting to know the local culture is of bigger interest than "just" looking at buildings and statues. There aren't too many articles or travel blogs with enough recommendations to Minsk, so I hope to get inspired when I'm there. So far, I have teamed up with BelAgro Travel, who will show me the2 Weekend trip to Toulouse | FranceThis time, I spent my weekend in Toulouse, France. After having visited the festival Tomorrowland in July this year, I met a couple of new friends that I really wanted to see again. One of those friends lives in Toulouse. And I couldn't really see why I should stay home, when Toulouse has sunshine and a pool, while it is getting really cold in Denmark these days. I arrived early afternoon Friday, so we almost had 3 full days in the city. We started the day with lunch and a bottle of wine. After this, we decided to explore the city a bit. In France, Toulouse is known as the city with the red bricks all over - La Ville Rose. Even though the city is the fourth largest in the country, it actually doesn't feel like you're visiting a big city. Approximately half a million people live here, and the city is located right at the Garonne river, which ends at the Mediterranean Sea. Today, Toulouse is partly known for being the hometown of Airbus, who produces aircrafts for many of the large1 My visit to Chernobyl: The most radioactive place on the planetOn my trip to Kiev, I visited the most radioactive place on the planet: Chernobyl. It seems that everybody has heard of Chernobyl, and a lot of people would love to go visit this place but think that it is too dangerous to actually go. When I researched places to visit during my time in Kiev, I found so many tour operators offering day trips to the ghost city Pripyat and the nuclear power plant Chernobyl. When I saw this, I immediately knew that I wanted to go and see what this was all about. Chernobyl has been in the news often and it's a topic almost everyone has heard of. Knowing that there were lots of tours going to Chernobyl, I decided to go there as well. Last year, approximately 60,000 people visited Chernobyl. If they could do it, so could I. What happened in Chernobyl It all happened in 1986, when one of the four nuclear power plants of Chernobyl exploded and caused major damage to the surrounding area. At that point in time, this nuclear power plant was the largest in the1
