I swore I wouldn't turn this into a 'mommy blog' but I am currently trapped under a sleeping baby, so our Danish adventures are somewhat curtailed right now. I figure I might as well use this time to write a bit about our experience having a Danish viking baby, starting with the pregnancy... I have … Continue reading Gravid i Danmark
Last week winter finally decided to show up with some snow and subzero temperatures. Despite being Scandinavian, Copenhagen only gets snow once or twice a year, so the novelty factor is extremely high. I thought everyone sweltering in Sydney would like to see how the other half are living right now, so I took some photos … Continue reading Sne!
We're in the process of recovering from our first Danish Juleaften, aka Christmas Eve, so I thought I should use this lazy time to pull some photos together. Our Juleaften actually had a multi-day preparation phase, interspersed with a trip to Tivoli to see Nøddeknækkeren (the Nutcracker).

I have, however, been keeping track of … Continue reading Jul det’ cool

We've been waiting for clear days to start working out way through the various towers in the city where you can get a good view out over the rooftops. Presented … Continue reading Rundetaarn
This is not going to be a particularly touristic or scenic post, or even of much interest to anyone but ourselves probably, but it documents a major development in our Danish life: finally getting lights installed in our flat. It sounds pretty minor, but it's really one of the most exciting things to have happened … Continue reading Vi endelig har lamper!
