I cannot believe that summer is almost over! Time flies by so fast!
After 3 weeks of nonstop eating, sleeping in, exploring and doing housework cause thats what being a houseowner does to you– it feels strange to get back into the old routines. and at the same time it feels so natural, that after a couple of hours, at the office, it does not even feel like I have been away.
If you follow me on Instagram you might have noticed that my Instastories are filled with naturevideos and pics. Denmark is so beautiful during summer that i had to share it with you!
It is such a small country and yet there are always new things to explore.
Like this old bridge where these pictures where taken. It had been in hiding for 85 years! Now it has been restored and made into a turist attraction.
For a day of exploring I decided to wear a layered outfit due to the changing weather. I still wanted a summerish look but had to add a trench to keep warm.
I like my classics and immediately went for my denimshorts that I have practicly been living in all summer due to their comfy style. Then added a lace top and my fav shoes of the month.
I have visited a lot of the beautiful attractions Denmark has to offer this summer and I am not nearly done! I have many more on my ‘need to explore’ list.
Do you also like to explore your own country and its attractions?
I am already dreaming about my next roadtrip adventure.
If you Google Odense -Wikipedia will tell you that this was the city Hans Christian Andersen was born, about the old houses, churches and museeums.
It is also the town where I grew up.
Although I lived a few miles outside the citycentre this was still the place we went to shop, eat, go to the movies and so on.
I could go on and on about what this city i known for, but I would rather show you some of the hidden treasures, the old part of the city, one of the cutest boutiques and my new favourite spot to have coffee and treats.
Pinoc has existed for a few years and is such a cute shop. They carry most of the Danish designers like Day Birger et Mikkelsen and By Malene Birger, but you can also find jewelry, phonecases, bags and if you love interior design this place has the best items.
After a little shopping I like to stop at a café to have lunch or just a little treat in the afternoon.Actually I read recently that the people that live in Odense love to eat out so there are a lot of new restaurants and cafés popping up. whenever a retailstore closes. I guess we like to eat more than to shop?! how did that happen?!
One of the places that I love to visit is Brød – they have the custes little café with coffee and all the Danish treats you can think of.
After a little treat I like to walk through the old cobbled streets away from all the highstreet shops and crowds. This area of the city has a lot of old buildings, shops and galleries.
Like the old shop called Kramboden where I used to go with my grandmother and siblings every vacation to buy candy and look at the old fashioned toys. You can buy everything from old tin, kitchen equipment to toys and candy here.
The houses are the cutest leaning buildings and are very hard to get a hold of. They are often past on from one generation to another.
If you are ever in Denmark this is a special area to visit and also if you want to see where Hans Christian Andersen grew up this is just in the neighbourhood.
This year instead of traveling to palmtrees and white sandy beaches I choose to stay home and explore the beautiful sightings in Denmark. Hopefully this fall weather we are experiencing will turn into sun and cloud free skies by the time my vacation starts.
With everything that is happening in the world right now it would be wrong to complain about the weather we are having, the oppertunities we did not take or the life we are living.
It is time that we start living everyday to the fullest. Appreciate what we have and the people in our lives.
We ourselves are resposible for the life we choose to live. If you are not happy about something in your life change it. You are the only one who can do it.
Do what makes you happy. All day everyday.
