The view from our place for a month, on Amager, Copenhagen
Wow, it’s been a while, huh?! We honestly have been doing everything but updating the blog which is really a shame…
As you can see from the previous posts we’re now back in Denmark. It’s been nice so far. We’ve both forgotten how awesome summer time in Denmark really is. The light nights are definitely our favorite part! The sun doesn’t set until 10 pm and somehow it doesn’t get as dark in the summer as in Winter.
We have been living with Jonas’ parents, my mom, friends and been able to stay places while people were on vacation. It’s been a bit stressful. But now we have a place for a whole month, which is nice. Finally some peace.
I am actually surprised that I’m enjoying our time in Denmark so much. When we boarded the plane in Fort Lauderdale, I could have cried. I wanted to stay and continue to travel. I was sad when our plane landed in Copenhagen as well. Almost depressed.
But Denmark is growing on me. And I can actually see myself spending my summers here. It’s amazing.
Next stop: Berlin
Yesterday we made an impulsive decision to go to Berlin – this Sunday! We booked everything yesterday and I’m sooo stoked that we’re going! Even if it’s only for two nights.
If you follow the big thing going on in Brazil right now, you’ll know that Germany just went through to the final in the World Cup in soccer! And they did that kicking Brazil’s ass to a point that made it an embarrassment to watch.
They beat Brazil 7 – 1. Ouch. The Brazilian crowd was crying, people started leaving the stadium in the break (where Germany was already leading 5 – 0), and when it was over, the Brazilian team broke down in tears. Double ouch.
If you didn’t watch the game, this gif sums up what happened pretty well:
(Omg I love gifs sooo much!) So with our neighboring country through to the final, we decided to go down to Berlin and be a part of the celebration and watch the final at Brandenburger Tor with the Germans. Denmark didn’t even qualify for this World Cup. Ugh. So we have to act German and root for them this Sunday! I have German roots from maaaany generations ago anyway, so that must count. Right?
We’re flying back on Tuesday so we’ll get a full day in Berlin on Monday. We got a very nice deal on a great hotel and I seriously can’t wait to go!
What have you guys been up to these past months? :)
