Welcome to Robe Trotting

An above-average travel blog and expatriate resource guide designed by 2 American expats living in Copenhagen. We aim to inspire you to go abroad for a week or forever.

We are Derek and Mike – a couple of gay American expats who love to travel the world. Life abroad has been amazing, never dull and afforded us the opportunity to travel the world.

We want to inspire and equip you to see the world whether it’s for a vacation or to live. Look around and learn more about our travels, our life abroad and the differences between living in Europe and living in America. Use our travel resources to help yourself find your next adventure.

The world knows a lot about America, but Americans know very little about the rest of the world. Let’s change that.
