Photo Diary: A Weekend of Camping at Furesø

A weekend in the wilds was exactly what I needed. Ever since moving to Copenhagen and living the big city life, I’ve been itching to get back out into the countryside and explore the Danish nature. When I lived in Jutland as a child, I used to think that Denmark was the most boring country in the world because of our flat landscape and endless…

Biking to Dragør: A Charming Village on the Eastern Tip of Amager

Ten days ago, I finally had a day off work, and since I don’t have many days off in June, I’ve decided to spend those few days that I have the best way possible. It’s summer, the weather is beautiful and I have no exams to revise for, so going on adventures seems like the perfect way to spend my free days. On June 6th,…

Introducing The Land of Legends: My New Job

After years of working in factories and supermarkets while attending school and travelling the world, I felt like it was finally time to find myself a new and exciting job this year. When I saw that The Land of Legends, an open air museum in Lejre, were looking for archaeology students for a part time job, I didn’t hesitate to send an application. Thankfully, I…

My Favourite Travel Photos of 2016

2016 has been a glorious travel year. I’ve visited 24 countries, 16 of them new ones, and everywhere I’ve been, I’ve brought my trusty Sony camera with me. Even here in Copenhagen, I can’t live without it. I’ve taken thousands of pictures this year, more than ever before, and choosing my favourites hasn’t been an easy job. It took me a while, but here they…

Stevns Klint: A Danish Natural Heritage Site on the Island of Zealand

Stevns Klint is a 17 km long and 14 m high gem of a chalk cliff on the Stevns peninsula in Southeast Zealand. In 2014, the site of Stevns Klint was included on the UNESCO World Heritage List, because of its fossil-rich cliff that offers outstanding evidence of the impact of the Chicxulub meteorite, which is thought to have caused the biggest mass extinction ever…

Danish Island Holiday: To Møns Klint and Beyond

On the first weekend after moving to Copenhagen, I decided to take a trip out to one of Denmark’s nature pearls located on the beautiful island of Møn in South Denmark. Two years earlier, I had given my parents a voucher for a weekend trip to Møn for mother’s day, which they had decided to use on that glorious weekend in late August. Since I…

Cultural Wednesday: Visiting Frederiksborg Castle in Hillerød

Today was a glorious day! The sun was shining, the air was fresh, and it was time for an adventure outside the city! Our teacher had arranged for our class to visit the ruins of Æbelholt Abbey, an old Augustinian monastery, which is located 5 km. west of Hillerød in Northern Zealand. Because of its remote location, a few of us chose to take our…

Moving to Copenhagen: A New Beginning

With a big backpack on my back, a smaller one on the front and a ginormous suitcase in my hand, I took off early in the morning on August 24th to catch a bus to my new hometown, Copenhagen. I come from a tiny town in Eastern Jutland and I’ve lived in the same house in that same town for the past 21 years, apart…

Merry Christmas from Denmark

MERRY CHRISTMAS! Christmas is the one time of the year that I don’t want to be travelling. I cherish the time I have at home with my family and Christmas is one of those cozy times that I just don’t want to miss out on. My travel schedule has been busy this year; I just came back from Australia two weeks ago and on New…

Sunrise on the Kattegat Sea

For the past year, I’ve become more and more fascinated by the sun. After experiencing the Total Solar Eclipse on Faroe Islands in March this year, I’ve really gotten to understand and appreciate how important the sun is to the life on Earth. Imagine a day without sunlight! It’s the most depressing thing that I can imagine – but thankfully, we still have millions of…
