Long Distance Traveller

For the last couple of Australian Opens, one of the most welcome entrants has been Henrik Mortensen, from Denmark. While it is expected that GM's might make the trip down under to play (if given the right conditions), Henrik is happy to spend his time and money escaping the Danish winter, for some sunny chess in Australia.
But what happens when the Australian Open isn't on? He heads to sunny Gibraltar instead!
