“I haven't been everywhere, but it's on my list”
Hanne is just one of the most patient persons I have known on the web. She is a twenty-something traveller from Norway who likes meeting people in every place she visits. She wants to learn about each and everyone's culture and tradition, their stories and more importantly, she has the desire to be a part of their lives.

Though she does not have so much money to use in her travels, she will continue visiting countries of Belize, Honduras and Mexico, not to mention her big dream to see more of East Europe and first visit to Cambodia and Vietnam.
Budget and planning for a trip is something that Hanne consider very important to be able to cut cost of her travels. She usually live with the locals, which is most of the time, with free accommodation, food and transportation. With her experiences, she still believe that there are many kind people around the world who welcomes and open their doors to strangers like her. It's amazing!
Her advice is to rely on the locals, not on travel books. "Ask only the local people about their culture and their way of life. Interact with them, ask for the best and safe place to go. No one knows their country and culture better than the people living and growing up in it", she says.
The above information is to sum up our featured traveller's mission while travelling. In her website, Places, People, Stories, she blogs for tips on how to deal with the local people and she will tell you why planning a trip makes you happier than actually taking one.
