Was blessed to spend 2 full days of my Europe road trip in the capital knows as the City of Music – Vienna, Austria. Vienna’s history dates back to the first post-Christian century when the Romans established the military camp Vindobona. It is a capital I quickly fell in love with due its old age and many baroque-inspired buildings.
It seems to me like there is one trend that doesn’t go out of style. And I’m ever so grateful for that. Guess what it is? Millennial pink. Therefore the NANAN Patisserie in Wroclaw, Poland was nothing short of a dream to visit during my trip around Europe. This small patisserie that only seats 14 people is all made of blush pink velvet and designed by Polish designers BUCK.STUDIO. Walls, chairs, everything. Almost the cakes, too. Their menu consists of macarons, cakes and their famous eclairs (which I can HIGHLY recommend). See the pictures below for a magical glimpse into this place…Read More
Do you have one of those places in your city/country/nearby you feel like you just have to show someone when they visit you? I have for sure. And for me that place is Copenhagen. So when one of my non-Danish friends visited I took her to Copenhagen and where I took her, I want to take you as well. So if you are going to Copenhagen soon be sure to see some of these places yourself. Some of the places are classics and over-touristy, others are small, hidden gems located outside of the regular tourist spots. So here are my recommendations:
God calls us to go. To go into all the nations (Matthew 28). And this summer God called me to Thailand for 2 months. The time in Thailand was a part of the the last phase of the DTS called outreach.
So what did I do in Thailand you might wonder?
First we stayed in Bangkok for a couple days for orientation where we learned a lot about the culture and belief of this country known as “the land of smiles”. A country that is also known for the line “to be Thai is to be buddhist”. To get to know this country we went to downtown Bangkok and visited temple after temple. Not that we had to search to find them, they were everywhere.
Travelling to Athens, Greece was such a cool experience I will remember for a long time. Especially since I am such a giant history nerd who loves to read about ancient cultures and the history of other countries. Athens is one of the world’s oldest cities with its recorded history spanning over 3400 years and is home to more than 3 million people today. A lot of the things in Western culture comes from this place. Things like our literacy and written communication, school system, welfare system, mathematics, philosophy, democracy and the list could go on.
Having just been to the lovely city of Amsterdam this week I wanted to show you a glimpse of what I did while I was in the city.
This summer I have been so fortunate to be able to travel all the way here from Denmark to the US for 4 weeks with my family. It has for sure been an amazing time and since me and my family are a really active family who like to spend their holiday doing a little different activities than most other people I thought it might be interesting and even helpful in thoughts of upcoming vacations to share some of the awesome things we did here on my little space on the internet I have come to cherish so much since I started last year.
A month ago I had the joy of travelling to London with one of my dearest friends. I have been wanting since I came home to share my favorite places in London with ya’ll here on the blog.
Once upon a time there was a girl whose favorite color was pink. When the end of October came close, she went on a plane and traveled to London. In London she decided to visit every pink restaurant and shop that she could find. And to top it all she decided to wear some cloth from her favorite collection – the famous LC Lauren Conrad Runway Collection.
For a couple weeks ago I went to Gran Canaria with my family. It was a really wonderful trip and below are some of the pictures I captured:
We went to this awesome stone called Roque Nublo.
And the view from there was nothing less than stunning.
And why not another picture of this landscape?
Then we went to the colorful city of Puerto de Mogán. Where almost every house had its own color.
“No one realizes how beautiful it is to travel until he comes home and rests his head on his old, familiar pillow.”
