July is here!
And if my almost five years in Copenhagen have taught me anything, it’s that July is when summer really happens here.
School holidays started last week, and by the time July rolls around, the office will be well and truly deserted, and the morning commute will be much more relaxed!
As we’re heading on our big US trip in October, we don’t have any vacation planned in the summer – apart from some smaller weekend trips. So I’ll be holding down the fort at the office, and enjoy a few relaxed weeks of summer in this amazing city.
Some of my July plans include:
… enjoying numerous glasses of chilled rosé on the balcony – I’ve given it a green makeover this year that I’ll share with you in a while
… going to flea markets and hunting for treasure, since I’ve challenged myself to not buy any new clothes, only second-hand, this month
… enjoying a decadent 4th of July dinner at one of my favorites, Alabama Social, next Tuesday
… going on a weekend trip to Aarhus – I’ve never been, but heard really good things, so I’m excited to finally see for myself! I’ll be checking out the food market, the deer park, and the infinity bridge. Let me know your best tips in the comments!

… attending a few concerts at Fredagsrock in Tivoli – for example, Erykah Badu is playing on July 14
… going to this food market in Rørvig – potentially combined with a brief stay at the summer house – summer in Rørvig is just the best!
… catch up with my reading list – at any given time, I have between three and five books “open”, and I plan on finishing some of them over the summer. Again, if you have any great novels or biographies you can recommend, I’m always happy to stack a few more on top of the list!
