Okay, fine. I admit it. Maybe I didn't meet Rudolph. But I definitely did meet a load of deer! And at Christmas time, who's to say these aren't Santa's helpers? Dyrehaven is awesome. It's a deer park slightly out from the main hustle and bustle of the city where rather tame deer live and it … Continue reading Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer
Living in Aarhus, this city seems to have most things: an array of bars, shops and outer woods to explore or go on a walk. However, what it suffers in is Christmassiness. Of course, it does its bit. There was a Christmas parade a few weeks ago where the Christmas lights were switched on and … Continue reading Christmas in Copenhagen
This is just a little post of excitement from a Brit who was way too thrilled at the arrival of snow in Denmark! I instantly turned into a big kid, prepared my vocals for a bit of Frozen's Let it Go before heading out into the white wonderland as soon as I possibly could. I … Continue reading First Snowfall!
"J-DAG! J-DAG! J-DAG!" "I'm sorry, what?" Like me, this may have been your first thought as to the title of this post if you are not Danish. In fact, this 'thing' came as much of a surprise to myself and a lot of other internationals. But now, my eyes have been opened and I will … Continue reading J-DAG!
This is the third and final installment in the October break adventures (only 1 month late)! I was super duper excited to finally visit the capital of the new country I am now calling home and it was amazing what we managed to fit into a day and a half. So, from … Continue reading The Autumn Break: Copenhagen
The Wednesday of the Autumn break not only meant an awesome trip to Sweden but also, MY BIRTHDAY! Waking up at 4.30am having had very little sleep due to excitement, we started our coach and ferry journey across to Zealand and onwards to Malmö! Now, I am very used to celebrating my birthday away from … Continue reading The Autumn Break: Malmö
Yet again this was a while ago now but having hit the final month before essay stress and dealing with an overwhelming travel bug, I thought it would be worth posting and reflecting on my amazing October half term. First stop: ODENSE. Odense (I honestly still have no idea how to pronounce … Continue reading The Autumn Break: Odense
This little old post is going to be a bombardment of photos because what better way to share my experience from such a lovely day. Den Gamle By in Aarhus is an open air museum which takes you from the 1700/1800's right through to the 1970's (my favourite part!) After checking it out on TripAdvisor … Continue reading Den Gamle By
Now, this happened a week ago exactly and I had planned to write this last Sunday. However, being in such a lazy and terrifically hungover state, it was no surprise that it did not happen. As you may have already guessed, this is a drinking game. Despite its French sounding origin (Quick google translate being … Continue reading The Tour du Chambre
... each, Let's go get away! Couldn't resist. Last weekend I went on a cycling trip to the west beach in Aarhus with a couple of friends and it was absolutely beautiful! Now, I'm not one of those people who went on exotic holidays when I was growing up and the only water I really … Continue reading Let’s go to the Beach…
