Traveling alone – Why everyone should try it once

Our friends are planning a visit in September. Our original plan was to bookend their trip with time in Copenhagen and hit Oktoberfest for the weekend. A little into the planning process, we realized that an Oktoberfest trip takes considerable more preparation and we looked for other options. We settled on Stockholm out of interest and economy – $88 roundtrip tickets are pretty persuasive. This is not my first time to Stockholm, I was there just a month ago, but this trip should be pretty different because I won’t be traveling alone. Yes, I traveled alone for the first time when I went to Stockholm in July. Mike was away on business and I found a flight even cheaper than the previously mentioned one so I booked it.

Cooking as an Expat – Orange Ginger Soy Salmon Over Sweet Potato Noodles with End of Summer Salad

Living in Denmark, we have taken up cooking at home more frequently. Eating out in Copenhagen has no dimmer switch – it’s either pricey Michelin rated cuisine or bland dishes that are familiar, but not quite right (and still over-priced). Nothing in between. The good thing is, Mike and I both enjoy cooking and I have plenty of time to plan a weekly menu. We are also embarking on a bout of healthy living for #FitFall and tonight we had a meal that was so good I had to share the recipes here.

Top Cities to Visit in Europe

One of the best parts of expatriating is the simple fact of living abroad and getting to travel in a new region. Living in Copenhagen, I can get on a plane and be in Southern Spain in the same time I could travel from Philadelphia to South Florida. Unlike traveling around the United States, however, Europe’s unique regions are incredibly diverse in cultural influence, spoken language and centuries of history that make even a short car ride seem like you’ve been transported to a new world.

Must See – Adorable Danish Graffiti

,

Like most large cities around the world, Copenhagen is full of graffiti. Over the years, graffiti is something I have gotten used to as an urban dweller. My hometown of Philadelphia tries to combat graffiti with a city-wide mural arts program and it’s been quite successful. Berlin is another city full of graffiti that has made it part of its charm – graffiti is a thread in the municipal fabric of the city. In Copenhagen, I walk past a piece of graffiti almost every day that is nothing short of adorable and I had to share it. Continue reading “Must See – Adorable Danish Graffiti”

Expat Life – Leaving Loved Ones Behind

When I was young, my aunt moved to California from Philadelphia. I didn’t really comprehend what that meant, I just knew that she wasn’t around as much and missed things that I wish I could have shared with her – birthdays, soccer games and even some holidays. As I was planning to move to Copenhagen I thought back to those times and how I would feel leaving my two nephews like she had done herself years before. Life has a way of teaching you things whether you’re paying attention for the lesson or not. Continue reading “Expat Life – Leaving Loved Ones Behind”

Norway in a Nutshell – In a Nutshell

Earlier this month I set off on a trip unlike my other travels these summers and I experienced Norway by embarking on the Sogneford in a Nutshell tour. Because of her Norwegian heritage, my friend Ashley wanted to include this excursion to Norway when she visited me in Copenhagen along with our friend Marilyn. Over four days we experienced the breathtaking Scandinavian IMG_1162.JPGlandscape from Bergen to Oslo through the fjords and mountain trains with stops in Flåm and Myrdal. Norway was never high on my travel bucket list, but on this trip I was pleasantly surprised and the getaway made me reconsider my travel priorities going forward!

Amsterdam – 5 Things You Can’t Miss

Late last month I took a once in a lifetime trip with some of my favorite people; I hit Paris and Amsterdam with Mike and my sister Jillian. We spent 3 scorching hot weekdays in Paris and then it was time to travel by train to Amsterdam where we ended on the highest note of the trip (pun intended). Two amazing capitals of Europe in one week! Continue reading “Amsterdam – 5 Things You Can’t Miss”
