Ireland – The greenest of greens

Ireland is a place with incredible landscapes. During my 2012 Eurotrip, I had the opportunity of traveling in this awesome country during two very busy days. Although it was very short and rushed, I loved the trip.

Carli, Alexia, Paige and I arrived in Dublin around 9:30 a.m., exhausted from our London trip and anxious to lie down and sleep for a bit. We caught a bus in front of the Airport and went straight to our hostel. We stayed at the Four Courts Hostel, a huge, well located hostel, with 24-hour reception, some funky decor, super comfortable beds and breakfast (although it left much to be desired) was included. For “just” 15 euros, we stayed in a room with 10 beds. But, believe it or not, I slept like a baby both nights. We were really lucky to share the room with very laid-back and, let’s say, non-snoring people.

Copenhagen – Even More Beautiful in the Summer

Going to Copenhagen (København in Danish,) I had very big expectations. I was meeting up with two of my best friends from childhood, Carli and Paige. I was excited to finally see them again after only communicating through emails and Skype for the last three years and I was looking forward to our big three-week Eurotrip together. But, Copenhagen exceeded all of my expectations. Not only was I reunited with two incredible friends, I was also with an amazing new friend, an adorable CouchSurfing host and, to top it all off, amazing weather.

Malmö – A Last Minute Trip

Before I started my July Eurotrip, I had everything planned over a month before I was supposed to head out. Malmö was a different story.

I only decided to go to Malmö about a week before the trip was supposed to start. My host family was going away during the last week in June on a camping trip, which meant I had five extra days to spend as I wished, and my wish was to get a head start on my big trip. Since I was going to Copenhagen to meet up with some friends in a few days, I looked into cities near Copenhagen that would be interesting to travel to, and I stumbled upon the great city of Malmö. Malmö is the third largest city in Sweden and it’s conveniently located just 30 km east of Copenhagen, which means a 35 minute train ride to get from one city to another. Perfect for a last-minute addition to my itinerary. Continue reading “Malmö – A Last Minute Trip”

Beach Day!

This week the weather has really turned around here in Aarhus. The sun has been shining brightly and the wind has died down quite a bit, so temperatures have really gone up. On Wednesday, we had about 20°C, it was wonderful. In fact, the weather was so nice that I decided to take the little ones for a walk on the beach.

Sofia wasn’t able to come along since she had a violin lesson, but Victor was more than happy to get some sand between his little toes.

Earth Day

To celebrate Earth Day, I took my bicycle for a ride and spent the entire day outside.
