    1 - Aarhus

    August 3, 2019 in Denmark ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    10 hours on the train was a bit tooooo long. But we survived! Sadly a part of the group had a lot of trouble with the trains so they arrived later. We checked in into the Airbnb which is located at the harbor so also really central. We have a really nice view with a small balcony which is great. After we checked in and showered (since we were still wearing the clothes from Friday and it was disgusting) we strolled around the city to find something to eat. We ended up with a pizza.
    So after we had an delicious dinner we went to get the rest of the group whom finally arrived at the station and went for another walk through the city. Just exploring and seeing things, but taking it easy. My impression of Aarhus is really clean and safe. It’s not big like tourist big so you’re feeling kind of with the locals. It’s nice!
    This weekend in Aarhus there is a sort of festival in the harbor. So there are stages everywhere and they had a big firework show.
    But now it’s time to really catch up with some sleep since I haven’t really slept at all past night.

    Tomorrow we will continue our journey to Copenhagen.

    Aarhus by Night

    November 26, 2019 in Denmark ⋅ ☁️ 5 °C

    Travelling in winter can be a disadvantage when cloud cover and the Earth's angle work in vicious tandem to create 3:30pm sunsets. This was the time in Aarhus after I had arrived and eaten lunch...

    However, a seasoned traveller can turn anything into an advantage. And so began my night-time (late afternoon 😆) tour of Aarhus. I had no plan. I simply followed the neon signs and Christmas lights from block to block and saw where my feet took me.

    I saw a rainbow halo, a haunting yet beautiful Christmas tree, a hyggelig street and a rooftop lookout. Spontaneity can be the best plan of all.

    Very short stay in aarhus as it wasn't planned and I wanted to break up the train ride between Goeteborg and Amsterdam. Nontheless, aarhus is quite a pretty city, a good end for the Scandinavian part of my travels.Read more

    September 8, 2019 in Denmark ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Spent the entirety of Saturday reading a book I bought at the airport in Germany ‘The shortest history of Germany’. Loved it. Clearly couldn’t put it down. From the dawn of writing to today. Great insight!

    We had breakfast with Nanna’s boyfriend Andreas and a friend of hers. Then pizza dinner with their cousin I had met at her Auties party Tina.

    Was a really good relaxing day!

    Yesterday we headed to the Moesguard museum. Bloody hell what a building. Grows out of the ground with grass all up its sloped roof which you can walk and relax on. Great view to the seas.
    The museum was great fun. History of people of Denmark and particularly Aarhus. Really well done! I got to the see the Grauballe man up close and personal. The Iron Age bog man. Fully preserved. They actually had to put him in a box under similar conditions to the bog (which holds no bacteria) to ensure he was fully leatherised and not shrink and lose his form. The best preserved man to date.

    The museum is interactive and fun. Ideal to learn about this area and greater Denmark!

    Into town and we found an all you can eat Sushi restaurant ( sounds bad but..) that you order through iPads. Absolutely delicious. Probably would have been cheap but we also ordered wine which was so nice we had a few 😁

    Back home to relax and hit the hay.

    October 10, 2017 in Denmark ⋅ ⛅ 10 °C

    Going to Aarhus where Jonas will meet us after his navigation test. They told him yesterday it's a shame he wants to be a rescue swimmer, he should continue on with navigation. But he wants to join the rescue team.

    First of all we visited Joanna favourite Deer Park, beautiful big park with all the trees starting to change colour and lots of deer around. Weird sound the deers make calling to each other.

    Then off to lunch in Aarhus Street Food. Looks like a dump from the outside but cool place filled with lots of containerised kitchens inside an industrial building.

    Aarhus old town is a preserved historical town and we had a lovely couple of hours wandering around there.

    We met Jonas , who had passed his test with flying colours and had hot chocolate and coffee. We were going to have dinner at a roof top bar but the rain put a stop to that but Jonas remember a restaurant that had just opened and had good reviews. Kod it was called, means meat, ha ha no wonder he remembered it.

    Great choice though it was beautiful and the steaks were nearly as good as home!
