Tage toget til Louisiana

This weekend we have been enjoying our last few quiet, domestic days in Denmark before heading back to Aus for a few weeks. We did our first ever Parkrun, followed by some more pier swimming. Post-swim we unintentionally ordered an ice cream at Lydolphs Isbar that was so 'generous' that even sharing it was an ordeal. A highlight was overhearing a woman who made a … Continue reading Tage toget til Louisiana

Næsten som om sommeren…

I've still got some photos from the last few weeks piled up, but to hell with chronology - I'm going to skip straight to some pics from the last few days that have given me reason to be optimistic about summer in Denmark.

Don't say I never do anything for you. Predictably, our first act in Hungary was to eat a Kürtőskalác … Continue reading Magyar étel – különösen Woody

Fastelavn på Christianshavn

Our weekend of loosely structured house hunting happened to coincide with Fastelavn. It is a religious festival in Scandinavia that has its origins in Carnival and Lent - sadly my complete lack of religious education* prevents me from shedding any more light on the matter than that. We were, however, filled with born again religious fervor to celebrate Fastelavn when we … Continue reading Fastelavn på Christianshavn
