Episode #3: Copenhagen

Welcome to Episode #3 of the Liberated Traveler. In this podcast we escape to the hip city of Copenhagen, Denmark. I have compiled a list of 10 experiences to ensure you make the most of your trip to Copenhagen.


Bergen, Norway was the perfect way to end our honeymoon.  It was different than any city we had visited, and we shared many memorable moments in the port city. 


Our first stop in Norway was in Oslo.  Oslo is a beautiful, clean city. 


The second destination on our honeymoon was Warsaw.  Warsaw and its people are very resilient.  It is a city that on the brink of prosperity, saw destruction that came by bomb in 1939.  Since then, it was a long, and not always successful fight whether you were a Jew forced into the ghetto, a member…

Venice of the North: Bruges

Bruges (Brugge) is a quiet town in Northern Belgium. It is easily accessed from Brussels, which makes it possible to visit if you are staying in Paris. Bruges is physically possible in a day trip, but it is well worth an overnight stay or longer. Join me as we explore this gem in Belgium.

Travel Journey of the Week: Ireland

I know the topic is extremely broad this week, but it fits my thoughts.  I am in need of a place that offers healing and kindness.  When I was there for a long layover this past summer after I found out my mom was on life support, I felt rejuvenated and ready to handle any…

Dream Scenes in Photos

I had a dream last night that I was traveling around Venice.  Somehow, my students were there too, but let’s just focus on the Venice part for now.  I woke up this morning feeling rejuvenated.  It was almost like my slumber was spent enjoying a Bellini during the acqua alta.   Last night’s dream inspires today’s…

Chartres, France

I took the train out to Chartres to get away from the city for the day.  Chartres is a different world compared to Paris.  The streets are quiet, air is breathable, and birds sing as the cumulus clouds fill the blue sky.    I left around 8 this morning and returned around 3:30.  It was…
