I’m back, y’all!
In true Danish fashion, I’ve taken a little summer vacation from the blog in July. Even though the days are so long, I always seem to be insanely busy - there are just so many fun things to do in Copenhagen during the summertime!
So I thought I’d share a couple of snippets of these past weeks with you today. Some of them, you may have seen on my Instagram already, others are new.
A highlight of this summer - as always - was the visit from both of my sisters. Genius as they are, they managed to time it so they caught the BEST weekend, weather-wise, it was warm, sunny, and just all-around awesome. We spent some time in Copenhagen and a couple of days in the summer house, and it was AWESOME.
Drinking cold beers and playing cards in the sun at Nemoland in Christiania. I do enjoy this place in the summer, it has a super relaxed atmosphere (I wonder why…), decently priced beers, and INSANELY delicious fries with chili mayo.
Summer in Copenhagen is always a great time for a boat trip through the canals - since I don’t have my own boat (I know, I’m embarrassingly poor!), we usually rent GoBoats, they have tables for snacks and drinks - important!
Take a break by the torpedo boat halls behind Christianshavn and jump in the water for a quick swim!
Life is better on a boat.
Also, everybody knows that once you’ve hit summer, there’s really no more point in trying to achieve that bikini body, so you might as well indulge! Boston Creme donuts and homemade lemonade from the Donut Shop in Nørrebro.
Summer weekends mean that there’s Friday night concerts in Tivoli, and they are always a fun time. I’ve been to a couple already this year, such as Air and Oh Land, and am definitely going back in a couple of weeks to see Denmark’s answer to Justin Bieber: Christopher! (the one who’s hair looks like pasta)
And finally, no summer in Denmark would be complete without a trip to the summer house in Rørvig!
I know, I’ve written about Rørvig approximately a quadrillion times (thinking about renaming the blog “The Rørvig Tales”), but they DO have the best sunsets up there, I swear!
And beaches. I mean, just look at this! How can you not want to spend a day there, getting a nice sunburn, I mean, tan? (Full disclosure: I got both.)
Of course, since this is Denmark, there will be the occasional rainy day. But luckily, we will always have beer and board games!
There you have it - some snippets of my past month here in Denmark.
