Thao Nhi Tran

Working with people and travel has always been my greatest joys in life. I was born and raised in the beautiful coast city in Stavanger. Currently, I am staying in Kristiansand after taking a bachelors in Tourism Management at the University of Agder. My wish is to show you the pleasures of travel and the beauty of Norway - hopefully it will be an experience you never forget.

How did you get involved in travel?

"Growing up, I was lucky to travel too many destinations around the world. It became natural for me to travel at every opportunity I could find! Each time I found a new joy - to explore the culture, try unique and delicious food, and exploring what mother nature has to offer - but also the impact humans and tourism have on each and every part. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"My first time traveling without any company was to Finland. There were both anxiousness and excitement when I landed in Rovaniemi. This was the first time I ever personally used a travel agency. I didn't know quite what to expect since I was a solo traveler and traveled off-season. However, this was not a problem at all. The agency provided me with a personal guide, instead of putting me together with another group. They provided me every single thing I wished for and even more. That trip left me with a newfound love for traveling and opened me to explore what's unfamiliar. To not let uneasiness, unpreparedness or lack of company stop me from exploring. I wish to provide such an experience to others. "

How to Experience Kjerag, Pulpit Rock, and Trolltunga Like a Local

The three most photogenic rock formations in Norway are drawing more in-the-know travelers than ever, and with good reason. Fantastic hiking, beautiful photo ops, and proximity to an interesting harbor town make this trifecta a worthy (and crowded) destination—but with some planning, you can still have an experience all your own.

This was the first time we planned a trip via kimkim. With a spontaneous decision to get out there for a bit but with too much work in the way to at least set some things up kimkim seemed like the perfect place to start. And we weren't disappointed!

This was the first time we planned a trip via kimkim. With a spontaneous decision to get out there for a bit but with too much work in the way to at least set some things up kimkim seemed like the perfect place to start. And we weren't disappointed! They were quick to reply and connect us with a local specialist, Thao Nhi, whom we have so much to thank for! She made the idea of a trip to northern Norway possible and was a great companion all along the journey (even if she couldn't be there physically ;). This trip was all tailored to our preferences and we were able to get the most out of our vacation despite the short notice.
A little bit about the trip itself: We were looking to spend a week in northern Norway where we ultimately got to meet a Sami family, their reindeers and slept a night in a lavvo. We went on a winter kayaking as well as a night snowshoeing tour. Norway is infamously beautiful and being lucky to also experience the natural spectacle of the northern lights made the overall experience even more unbelievable.
We met a lot of kind and interesting people along the way but most of all, and I can't say this enough, we appreciate Thao Nhi, her friendliness and the help she was providing. All of our best wishes to you!
