Exploring Denmark: Camp Adventure’s Forest Tower

Have you ever wondered how Rapunzel’s tower would be like, tucked away in the woods, deep into the forest, and surrounded by nature in every direction? Well, it may not be the stone tower but Denmark’s Forest Tower certainly gave me the feels!

Camp Adventure’s Forest Tower is one of the newest attractions the Scandinavian country has to offer! Located in Rønnede, approximately 50 minutes drive south of Copenhagen, Denmark, Camp Adventure’s woody grounds and the spiraling Forest Tower (Skovtårn in Danish) makes for an amazing day trip out of the capital city. Entry fee is waived for 0-3 years, DKK65 (USD10) for 4-6, and DKK 150 (USD23) for 7+.

9 iconic travel locations to visit after the covid-19 pandemic

The Coronavirus Disease 2019 or COVID-19 pandemic has affected lives all over the globe, including ours and millions of people wishing to travel and visit iconic travel locations and wonderful destinations.

While the pandemic definitely had the most devastating impact on informal economies (particularly “no work, no pay” jobs and hand-to-mouth income brackets), the global aviation and tourism industry has also taken the economic brunt.

To get us through our collective travel deprivation despair, here’s some iconic travel locations (some quite obvious and some less known) you might want to add to your post-pandemic “revenge travel” bucket list (or even “religious places to visit”, as it turns out) once we take to the skies as borders reopen and the world is safe again.

The Eiffel Tower and the Notre Dame Cathedral are both found in Paris, France. The French capital is also referred to as the City of Love, undoubtedly due to the romantic feeling one can experience while walking along the River Seine and looking at all the gorgeous architecture.

Fotofolio: Postcards from Prague

Praha! Praha! Praha!

Prague is such a picturesque city–charming, romantic, and a real gem from the old world.

As the capital of Czech Republic, Prague was the centre of the Kingdom of Bohemia and was home to many Holy Roman Emperors (cue soundtrack of the many medieval and historical dramas I love to watch).

Prague was founded during the Romanesque Era and continued to thrive and prospere during the Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque eras. I don’t know much about history and architecture but you can see different types of these buildings while walking around Prague.

Hong Kong to Macau by Bus (trough the HKZM Bridge)

Did you know that it’s possible to travel from Hong Kong to Macau by bus in 30 minutes? Yes, it’s the cheaper option too! This land travel is made possible through the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge (HKZM Bridge or HKZMB) which officially opened in October 2018.

We’ve been living in Hong Kong for almost two years now and I have used the bridge crossing twice. Before that, it took our family three hours to get from our door in Tung Chung, Lantau Island, Hong Kong to the famed Senado Square in Macau via the usual ferry options. With the HKZM Bridge, this travel was cut in half (yes, including the immigration clearances and actual travel time) and the expenses were cut by 60%.
