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!
Last Saturday we had the good fortune of having both nice weather and a lazy day with no real plans (ignoring the ever-present spectre of Danish homework). 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
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.

Our plan was to stop at various swimming piers along the way before eventually ending up at Dyrehaven. We kicked off proceedings with a quick swim at Svanemøllen pier, before riding … Continue reading Jeg hjerte hjorte
I've mysteriously busted my ankle sometime in the last few weeks, so I've been stuck in the house more than I'd like lately. On the plus side, there is no better time to be on forced bed-rest than when the Olympics are on. I'm doing some high level multitasking right now - writing this post while … Continue reading Når solen skinner
