Last weekend, Odense hosted a Harry Potter festival. The whole town was decorated!
There were different spots with Harry Potter experiences in town, always accompanied with different Harry Potter themed actors (The different spots were especially for children, although I wonder how they can be such fans, if technically they’re even too young to watch the movies or read the books).
Last weekend we visited Malmö in Sweden for one night and we basically just walked around and enjoyed the city. Malmö is very calm in my opinion and also seemed very clean. I could spend more time there and just sit by the beach or in town. We ate at TGI Friday’s and the food was truly amazing! The hotel we spent the night in was the “Best Western Hotel Royal”, which was also nice, the staff was very friendly and we had everything we needed.
Aarhus is the European capital of culture in 2017. The city is very nice, also a river passes through it, which I love. After that went to see a famous little street with sweet houses, which was very Scandinavian in my opinion. Furthermore, we went into a mall called ‘Salling’ which itself as mall was already really nice, but it has a huge and really nice roof top bar and a viewing platform with glass floor.
We also visited the famous museum ARoS, which was a bit strange and creepy, but all together very interesting and we were glad that we visited it!
I’ve finally started to watch Riverdale and I also finished the first season this month. I really think, that this is one of the best shows and I can’t even explain why. But, I’m really obsessed with it, I love the story line and I love the characters even more!
Place: Ærøskøbing, Denmark
My favourite place this month was definitely Ærøskøbing! This little town was so lovely, calm and full of joy to me.
We had another free day last week, so Julia and I decided to go on another excursion.
This time we went to the island Ærø, which was a journey of approximately 3 hours, but it was definitely worth it! We didn’t have a program planned, so we just walked around and enjoyed what we found. Read more!
Last week, there was the Blomsterfestival in Odense, Denmark, which was a flower festival. There were different stations all around town with flower set-ups, music playing, people dancing and also little games. All together the festival was really nice and we enjoyed it much, the town was filled with happiness and peacefulness!
Yesterday’s trip was to Kerteminde which was an approximately 40-minute bus ride.
We left pretty late, so when we arrived it was already lunchtime. We chose a sweet restaurant by the water, called Cafe Nova, where we ate Nachos, which were yummy. I also like that we got water as well to our drink orders, as this is not very common in Germany unfortunately. Read more!
I now finally moved to Denmark, which was quite stressful, hence also the little amount of posts recently.
I came to Denmark with my friend Julia for our semester abroad and the first trip we took was to the capital Copenhagen which was an approximately two-hour drive by car.
I was lucky enough to go on a very short trip to Australia for a wedding. You might not know that I spent a year in Australia in Western Australia a couple of years ago, but I went back two weeks ago to visit my host family for the wedding and I just wanted to share a couple of impressions! I didn’t have too much time for any sightseeing or taking many pictures in general but I must say, that I love Australia’s sunsets and landscape so much! So, that’s basically all I took pictures off.
Two friends and I went to the Netherlands for a day last week, to be more specific to Kerkrade. That we went there was a random choice, because we started driving in the direction of Netherlands with the train and then looked on the map and chose the closest town to our point which we could reach with our ticket. So, this is how we chose Kerkrade of which I hadn’t heard before, but when we arrived we realized that the town had a large music festival going on! In town, there were little bands and marching bands and the whole town square was built up for people to eat/drink and have fun!
Last year on the same visit in the USA when we went to Jacksonville, we also visited Washington DC. We got there by Bus and stayed in an Airbnb nearby to be flexible. Nearby is an understatement though, as we still had to walk very far to get everywhere, but it was nice. Unfortunately most of the pictures look sad, because the weather was really cold and rainy when we were there in December.
Causas is a Peruvian restaurant I went to with a friend and we decided to share a couple of starters rather than main courses so we could try more different things. So we had Anticuchitos de Pollo, Empanadas Fritas de Carne, Causa de Pollo and Yucas Fritas con Huancaina. Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of the Empanadas, but they and everything we ate was really yummy! I can definitely reccommend the food! Read more!
Yesterday was a pretty successful day for me as, now that I’m working at my internship full time and spend 3 hours of my day in trains, I don’t actually have more time or energy to blog, than I thought I would have, considering I don’t have to study at the moment. So, I actually couldn’t keep up with my own schedule for posting, but then something in my brain changed and I understood, that if I don’t always manage to publish two posts in a week (Tuesdays and Fridays) like I planned, it doesn’t matter. Nothing’s going to happen to me if I don’t publish a post, like it was planned! No boss will be angry at me haha. Read more!
One thing my dad told me once, is something he learned in a monastery where he took part in a seminar over three days. The theme was happiness, health, silence. One workshop they did was to write their own funeral speech. They should write about what they wanted people to say about them. For example, that someone would say, that they were a very kind person and very helpful, always happy, hard working etc. whatever they want people to say and think about them. Read more!
