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!
After a very lovely late burst of summer in September, October really decided to change things up. One day the max daily temperature just fell ten degrees overnight, from 22ºC to 12ºC, and all of a sudden it was autumn. The good news is that Copenhagen is very, very beautiful when all the leaves are … Continue reading Efterår

Turns out Bertel Thorvaldsen did a whole lot of impressive neoclassicistic statues … Continue reading Thorvaldsens Museum
Surprise! This post is not about IKEA or our pitiful first-world moving struggles, or even about the garbage collection area of our building* (sorry to disappoint). It's about what we got up to on our Easter holidays - thanks Jebus! The Danes celebrate Easter in a very Danish way - by giving everyone five days off … Continue reading A kiruccanás Magyarország
