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!
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 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!
