      Need WT translated?


    I wanna go to Africa!

    I recently participated in a Danish travel writing contest and was lucky to win the Story of the Month with a travel anecdote from The Tibetan Plateau. The final prize at the end of the year is an African safari for two…
    – I now smell the dust of the savanna.

    Half way down this page is the story (called “En skræmmende nat i Tibet” or “A Scary Night in Tibet”) (Danish only)

    Please cross your fingers out there!


    On this day..

      Hi Nicolai,

      If your writing is half as good as your photography, you’ll be saying “Jambo, Africa” later this year! But can you please find a friend to translate to English for those of us who: a) never had a chance to learn Danish; and b) who love it but tend to think of it fondly as a delicious pastry filled with cheese or cherries? cheers 🙂

      Good luck!

      Hi Lisa…

      I’ll leave the photographer/writer judge to the people who can actually read the article(s).

      I tried a few times to find some people who would like to do a bit of translating for me. A few very kind people did do some translating for me but it’s a lot of work to do the translations every day – not to mention to keep the (Danish) diary in the first place!

      But if there’s anyone out there… 🙂

      Enjoy your pastries, Lisa!

      Fed artikel Nico. Ikke mindst billederne… Krydser fingre for dig.

      Det fÃ¥r jeg helt sikkert brug for, Bex. Tak for det 🙂

      Hej Fjumse !

      Bex og jeg er sikre pÃ¥, at du vinder en tur til Afrika. Vi regner sÃ¥ bare med, at du inviterer hele Jet-Z’et, sÃ¥ vi kan nyde de “blÃ¥ elefanter” ad libitum. Det kunne være helt fantastisk!

      Mange sommertanker

      Onkel Sam

      Kære Sam…

      Ja, at gense de blÃ¥ elefanter pÃ¥ afrikansk grund (denne gang uden 37,3 i feber) ville blive et historisk øjeblik! Hvis det bliver aktuelt, vil jeg skrue charmen pÃ¥ over for Turen GÃ¥r Til-folket for at forsøge at fÃ¥ presset hele banden med i safarijeepen. Det skulle ikke være det største problem…

      Kærligst, Nicolai
