Being a Thoughtful Traveller in Denmark: Pre-Trip Thoughts – Episode 140 of The Thoughtful Travel Podcast

I’m preparing this post from rural Denmark, a couple of weeks after I recorded this episode and just over halfway through my stay in this gorgeous part of Scandinavia. I’ve just re-listened to my thoughts about what I was expecting to learn about here and I’m so pleased to be able to say I’ve learnt pretty much everything I’d hoped and more – and still have most of a week to go!

So I won’t say much more on that yet – that’s for another day – but I want to encourage all of you to be thoughtful about your travel and consider what you’re looking for before you arrive. It’s not just about planning and figuring out what sights you’ll see and where you’ll stay – I think a thoughtful traveller also spends time figuring out what they want to learn from a destination, and to research the customs and traditions and anything else you need to know.

Being a Thoughtful Traveller in Denmark: Pre-Trip Thoughts

It’s a special episode again – every ten episodes I do something different for The Thoughtful Travel Podcast – and listener Justin suggested I record my thoughts about my trip to Denmark with my son and how this trip would challenge us to be thoughtful travellers.

I liked this suggestion a lot so this is a solo episode with my pre-trip thoughts about visiting Denmark with my son; what made me decide to go, what I hope to find, and all of the thoughts I’ve had ahead of the trip. As always I’ve done some reading and research (also as always, not as much as I’d like, because life always gets in the way), and I’m curious to find out if the Denmark I expect is the Denmark I find. When this episode goes live I’ll be mid-way through two weeks exploring both Copenhagen and rural Denmark so I’ll have to have a follow-up later on what I actually discovered!
