About Kortbæk_Travels


Welcome to Kortbæk_Travels. My name is Allan and I´ve travelled to 31 countries, some of which you´ll find content for on this site. 

My fiancee, Mette, and I feel that it’s only fair that we give back to the world by sharing our best tips and tricks for how to travel affordably – as individuals, as a couple and most recently, as parents to our baby boy, Tristan. We believe that everyone should be able to travel the world and indulge in it’s wonders but we also believe it is important to care for our planet – by travelling or living sustainably.

On this page you will find:

  • Travel Destinations (tips and inspirational videos & Images)
  • Photos (My portfolio of photos and artwork
  • Cultural Articles (A collection of the articles I´ve written over the years, mostly within Cultural Journalism)

Who am I? 

In my “work life” – I´m a Social Marketing Specialist at KAYAK / momondo.

I´ve been an integral part of our in-house agency on campaigns – such as The DNA Journey, The World Piece, The Passport Initiative, Dear mom and dad and others – many of which have been nominated for and won numerous awards globally, including Cannes Lions.

“Off work” – in addition to travelling – I love surfing, learning new languages (I speak 5,) writing and photography.

I´ve done freelance Copywriting, Journalism, Video Production, Photography and more for over 10 years – working with clients such as Tourism Boards, National Newspapers, Large-Scale Publications, Hotels and more. My work has also been featured in several exhibitions across the globe. 


We live in a world that is being challenged by the way we live and conduct ourselves. You, me and generations to come have a unique opportunity to decide our future and the impacts we have on our world. 

As such, I am passionate about creating an impact within and outside of my work commitments. As an example, I co-founded Jengo in 2015 – a Danish NGO that has since raised over $100´000 for a portfolio of projects in Tanzania, centered on renewable energy solutions and the construction of schools. You can read more about Jengo and other sustainable projects i´m involved in under the “Sustainability” tab.
