A Day In Copenhagen

 photo DSC_0055_zps1b539511.jpg

Yesterday I spent the day in good old Copenhagen – my favorite place to be in all of Denmark! Copenhagen used to be our home and it felt good to finally set foot in the wellknown streets and wander the city I love so much.

While Jonas spent the whole day with some friends, I got to enjoy the beautiful city center and meet up with three of my favorite people in this world: my dad, my friend Johanna and my other friend Amarilla. How lucky am I that all three had time to see me!? :)

I began the day with my dad. We met at Torvehallerne for lunch. Torvehallerne are located very close to the busy station, Nørreport. It’s a fantastisk place with lots of cafés and specialty shops and food stands – it’s a very hip market, really.

We enjoyed a plate of overpriced chorizo with a glass of white wine in the sun. The place was full of people and we even had to share our table with two other people! Torvehallerne are so busy in the weekends and when the sun is shining as it did yesterday.

After that we moved on to find a café and had a coffee and a good talk about difficult people at immigration at airports before my dad had to go and I got to do some shopping – yay!

I then met up with Johanna to talk. Oh – it was sooo good to see her again! One of the most difficult things about being a nomad is that you can’t see your best friends as often as you would like. We talked over a licorice latte (ohmygawd so yummy!) and a cookie to share and it was perfect.

When she had to go I got to spend some time alone wandering the streets of beautiful Copenhagen. With my camera in my hand, I tried capturing the beauty of the city.

I’ve never really photographed Copenhagen before. When you live somewhere, it’s like you’re blind to the beauty there. With my camera and the mission to capture the beauty of Copenhagen to show on the blog, I felt like I saw the city in a new way. I loved it!

Beautiful and iconic Nyhavn – amazing place to visit in Copenhagen although it’s pricy and touristy.

Isn’t it just lovely? The sun was setting and the light was just perfect – it shed light on all the beautiful buildings and made them even prettier and easy to photograph.

When it was almost dark, I met up with Amarilla and we walked to Amager to her apartment to talk and eat candy! Hah! My day ended at 1 am after the perfect mix of friends, family and some alone time in my favorite Danish city!

Today we’re off to Odense where I was born and raised. We’re staying with my mother and her lovely family for some days. Can’t wait to show you my first home! :)

Oh – and you will see much more of Copenhagen. We hope to go here a lot more this summer and also play tourists! I also have a plan to write about how to travel to Denmark and Copenhagen on a budget – we know all the loopholes and would love to share!

Have a great day. :)

Back in Denmark

We spent six incredible days in lovely Fort Lauderdale – we have lots of photos to show you. But first a more up-to-date post: we’re back in Denmark since yesterday and have some beautiful photos to show you!

We’re staying with Jonas’ parents. They live in the country side in Zealand and we were both surprised by how beautiful it is here in late spring!

Their house sits at the very end of a small town, surrounded by the vibrantly yellow rasp fields. The day started off cloudy but this evening the sun finally came out! The beauty of summer in Denmark is that the sun is out until very late. We went for a walk and I tried to capture the beauty here.

I love everything about these photos. They’re extremely different from what we’ve been posting the last six months – but this is just another kind of beautiful. Even though I will admit that I miss the crystal blue Caribbean Sea…

We’re doing a little work on the layout on the blog – we want the site a little wider so you can really enjoy the photos more! So if something looks weird, you know why!


How do you like our home country?

Photo Essay: A Day In Flores, Guatemala

 photo flores_zps1cc1ccfa.jpg

Flores was our first taste of Guatemala. After nearly three weeks on Caye Caulker it was a huge difference to enter this small town in Guatemala. Once again, we had to adjust our minds and ears to the Spanish language and our eyes to the old, colorful towns – a huge difference from the Caribbean paradise we left.

We instantly liked Flores. We stayed in the old part of Flores which is located on a small island in Lago Petén Itzá – a beautiful lake.

We were surprised how small the island actually is. Before long we’d walked the entire island and seen almost everything it had to offer. We only stayed for two nights and spent one whole day at the Tikal ruins, but we still feel like we experienced enough of Flores. (more…)

Photo Essay – My African Dream – Part 4

Bulawayo photo bulawayo_zpsf826d978.jpg

As I promised this is my last post of my life in Zimbabwe. Part 3 showed photos of what tourists would see and do when they visited my parents and me in Zimbabwe.

In this post you can see some of the photos that shows how I experienced Zimbabwe. When you stay a long time in a place it becomes a part of your everyday life and most of your memory isn’t from all the tourist places.

Paradise on Earth: Playa Paraiso, Tulum

We plan on travelling along the Caribbean Sea for a long time. So this is probably not the last time we’ll claim to have found Paradise on Earth. But can you tire of seeing photos of paradise-like beaches? I think not! So here we go…

This week we went to Tulum with our friends Mirje and Antti from Anywhereism. We started off by taking a colectivo (local inexpensive mini bus) to Tulum center and then went straight for a taxi to the Gran Cenote (more on that in another post!).

After that great experience we got another taxi and told him to take us to the beach. “Take us to the most beautiful beach in Tulum!” we demanded. The taxi driver didn’t hesitate: “we’re going to Playa Paraiso” (more…)
