The value of travel isn’t so much in scratching off a list of destinations, of making money or working through a bucketlist of city trips. It is about making memories that last a lifetime – stories worth remembering and sharing. Here are some.

My latest stories

Here are the 3 stories I most recently posted to my blog:

Travel Stories

I travel to make memories. That is pretty much the reason why I embrace the concept of omakase. The Japanese habit of omakase (お任せ) when you’re ordering at a restaurant pretty much means, “I’ll leave it up to you”, inviting the chef to be innovative and surprising in the selection of dishes. I try to do it in every city I visit, and apply the idea behind to everything between how I pick my runshow I pick my foodhow I plan activities with my kidshow I explore cities and how I travel in general.

It makes you more open for new experiences and therefore, you make more memories. Here are some of my favorite travel stories and memories.

Hiking stories

As I hike and run a lot, many of my stories are related to hiking or running: New York City Marathon, the Athens Marathon, my Jordan Trail experience or my adventures in Iceland (Laugavegur and Fimmvörðuháls) to name a few.

With hikes, you end up in unexpected circumstances. Whether it is climbing from a canyon, getting evacuated in Petra, getting lost in a snow storm or something else.

My favorite stories

I have made a list of my favorite stories in a separate post, including how I befriended a Bedouin, how I ended up DJing in a bar in Italy and others.
