I'm sitting opposite the world's most traveled person aged 40 or younger, Sascha Grabow from Germany, who these days visits Norway.

Sascha Grabow stayed in Mandal here in Southern Norway for the weekend.
The 39-year-old German traveler is hoping to visit all countries & territories (872) of this world.
Grabow, a former profi tennisplayer, is now working as a tennis coatch and photographer during some months of the year,
while the rest of the time he is traveling, hoping to become the world's most traveled person (currently he's listed 16th).
He is already the youngest worldwide in the circle of people having traveled to 400 places or more, which they call the "Hall of Fame".
Coming from the Maldives, just having stopped in Germany to pick up some warm jackets etc ... he then traveled via Ireland,
Scotland and Liverpool to Mandal here in Norway.
Norway is well known to foreigners as a huge temptation to jobbing & earning
quick cash in a fish factory, thus maybe saving some money for their travels.
Sascha will then be moving on to Trondheim in order to meet a friend he had traveled with during 2004 in Indonesia.
... though that has to wait a day or two, as now we are going to feast on some "svineribbe" (loin ribs) ...
