Why Should You Go to the South of Denmark?

Why You Should Go to the South of Denmark? I will give you some reasons now Recently I went to a walk to Denmark, and I need to say, that was a good and surprising trip, I was in this city it is called Sønderborg, beautiful place by the way, and I was impressed, because it was just 24km from the border with Germany and it was a beautiful and unknown new world, the architecture was very rustic in a charming way, all over the city you could find small streets that became even smaller until the moment that all […]

City break: Copenhagen by bike

Copenhagen is one of the most developed cities in the world when talking about mobility. The best way for visiting Copenhagen in a 2 days city-break is by bike, because they have 350 km of bike lanes all over the city, in the suburbs and around the city, even in the green areas, so that makes riding the bike very easy and safe. This is something I recommend for most people, Copenhagen being on flatlands, so it is really easy to get a bike and visit around. Attention: this is no ordinary city guide because I was focused on new […]

Roskilde Music Festival: Scandinavia's Biggest Sustainable Party

It is no secret that Scandinavia is progressive and innovative when it comes to topics like sustainability but the Danes really promote this as a culture.  Roskilde Festival is no exception and more than 120,000 annual visitors are educated and encouraged to reuse, recycle, donate unwanted items, eat organic foods and make use of sustainable energy.  I did all this and more at the best eight-day party of my life! Having spent many weekends at music festivals across the globe the last day always makes me cringe.  Overflowing waste bins, camping debris and everything sent to landfill, as well as […]

Copenhagen: tips to keep in mind

It was a last minute crazy decision. I was in The Netherlands and a friend of mine was in Sweden, so we just pointed a city in the map that was kind of half way from where we were. That’s how luckily we ended up in Copenhagen, Denmark. Just a few days before deciding this trip I’d saw Copenhagen, an independent film from 2014. When I watch it I thought it wasn’t a good film at all but then when I had my ticket to Copenhagen it came to my head and I remembered all the places it shows. I […]

Hyggelig Denmark: Visit the Coziest Country in the Planet

Let me start by being straight-up honest with you. When I learned I would have to live in Denmark for six months my first reaction was, “Where’s Denmark, again?” Shameful, I know. Especially for someone who takes pride in her wanderlust and love of Geography. Back in 2016, my first and only experience in the Old World had been in Germany and well, let’s just say the first impression wasn’t great– but that’s a tale for another time. The Danes introduced me to a concept that I’m sure everyone has experienced at some point in their life but have never […]

A Walking Tour of Copenhagen' Statues

Copenhagen is an amazingly vibrant city, with so much to offer for travellers. Between strolling down the rainbow street of Nyhavn, relaxing on the grass with locals in the Kings Garden, and eating freshly caught fish, you really can’t go wrong. One, perhaps underrated, feature of this gorgeous city, though, is that it is home to some truly incredible statues! You can’t turn a corner in Copenhagen without finding yourself in front of a cool statue, and I wanted to share a few of the ones that became my favorites as I explored the city. A great aspect of Copenhagen […]

A Solo Trip to Copenhagen

A great man once said, ‘We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.” Travel, to me, is not just moving from one place to another—not a journey that takes me to a land untrodden; it is moving away from a monotonous routine and into a marvelous sea of collective thought. Copenhagen, for me, began with a resfeber that every traveler might have known. A new place, embedded with new souls—a new experience awaited me in a package of four days; four days which were in anticipation of showing me a mini forever. Being the spontaneous solo traveler that I […]

Denmark on a paddleboard: Copenhagen

I have been paddleboarding (SUP) all over Denmark. With our little rivers and over 7.000 km of coastline (twice as much as France!), there are tonnes of good opportunities to go cruising on a stand up paddleboard or catch a wave in the fjords and sea around Danmark. Copenhagen seems like the place to start since it is here you will most likely arrive from abroad. In the end of this article, I will give tips on events and rental. Good SUP spots in Copenhagen When in Copenhagen there are three preferred spots to go paddleboarding: The inner-city harbour (the […]

Things to do in Aarhus – European capital of culture 2017

When I think of Aarhus, vivid memories always fill my mind. I have spent few years of my life there and encountered life both as a student and as a worker. For me, Aarhus is a city of self-exploration, warm memories and good times. But most importantly, it is a city with a heart. Speaking of the city, 2017 is a big year for Aarhus. This year the city and its municipality represent the European capital of culture. This initiative is designed to promote richness and diversity of European societies. Also, it is orientated towards increasing tourism. This means that if […]

Visit Viborg: Snapshot into the Provincial Soul of Denmark

Embrace the Provincial Soul Amidst a wonderfully hilly landscape, shaped by the remnants of the last ice age, nestled in some of the oldest oak forest in Denmark, Viborg sits in the place of the heart on the map of the Peninsula. Viborg is one of the oldest cities of Denmark, and it has much to offer in terms of history, culture, sights and the outdoors. Only approximately an hour drive from both coastlines and 60km from Aarhus – the second biggest city of Denmark – Viborg is worth a moment of your lifetime. Walking through the old marking of a […]

Helsingør: The perfect day trip from Copenhagen

When traveling to Copenhagen most people don't think about taking day trips simply because it seems to be to complicated or because it will “take time away from getting to know the city”, but the truth is that there are many great places to visit just a short train ride away, one of the most popular being Helsingør. Main Attractions in Helsingør Kronborg Castle Kronborg castle is best known as Hamlet's castle, this castle is where Shakespeare got the inspiration for writing the well known tragedy, and even though there are no records of Shakespeare himself ever visiting Kronborg it […]

Copenhagen, the pearl by the sea

INTRODUCTION Sometimes when I travel I use to wonder how would it be like to live in that particular city. Well, I think Copenhagen (and the whole Denmark) is one of the few places in the world where life is really awesome, because has the rare and precious quality of being “people oriented” and “eco-friendly”. I’m not just talking about either the super-efficient services (of all the kinds) or the wonderful green spots that fill the whole city, but what really surprised and fascinated me was the calm, the peace, the respect and the joy palpable in the air, through […]

Copenhagen: Beauty of the north

The capital of Denmark will take your breath away. I promise. I would never have thought of Copenhagen as a must-see or as a place ranked high on my bucketlist. But oh, how huge mistake it was! After my study abroad in California, where I have met my Danish boyfriend, I was sure that I will visit this city quite often. And it only took ONE visit to completely fall in love. With Copenhagen of course, I was completely in love with my boyfriend already.   Denmark is considered to be the happiest country in the world. I am not […]

Student life in Copenhagen

Student life is always a great period of your life, but it can be very different from university to university. I live ordinary student life in Brno, Czech Republic, and moved to Copenhagen for half a year to compare. I know all that 80 percent of people in Denmark attending university could tell the story much better than me. But I don't really think they realize, what makes the living and studying in Copenhagen extraordinary until they try to do it somewhere else. That's why I'll present what I've found interesting in comparison with the Czech Republic student life. First […]

Copenhagen, Denmark; Walks To Remember

As I’ve lived in Asia for the past 25 years of my life, it’s not always easy or possible to find the time and money to make a trip to Europe. Luckily for me, this summer presented the opportunity to spend a month traveling around Europe while supporting the facilitation of various meditation and personal development weekend workshops with a close friend. Our first stop was Copenhagen, Denmark. I’ve never been to this city before (or not that I can remember, anyway), and it was an incredible re-introduction to Europe and the beauty of some of the old cities around […]

When you have best friends all over the world, the opportunity to travel is boundless. And when it's their birthday and you just so happen to be on the same continent, what other choice do you have but to take a weekend trip to celebrate with them?
