Good morning from grey and foggy Denmark. Weather doesn’t really spoil us here lately, it’s cold with high humidity, so the temperature feels lower that it actually is. Awfully. I don’t mind cold, I love frost and snow, it is just when everything is in grey, it does not give the same feeling of relief. Since Wednesday, I have had a quite hectic schedule.
First, I got sick. I have had problems with breathing and coughing for a few days, but eventually I lastly lost my voice. The worst scenario came to the life, where I had to execute an event, which we – Sport/Event Management class – had prepared in collaboration with one of the street food markets in Copenhagen. Wasn’t easy to wake up at 4:30 am on Thursday and spend majority of time outside until 9 am. Morning part of event wasn’t that popular as we expected, so we called it ‘a day’ earlier than we thought. Friday on the other hand was a working day, due to my Metallica concert on Sunday, I have swap shifts and took a double one yesterday. I can tell you now that 13,5 hour on the street food market standing for 99% of the time – NOT a good idea. Now, I am trying to stop my coughing attack by drinking ginger tea. Hope it will work, my chest hurst already…
Picture from above comes from my latest trip, it’s one of the main streets in small town of Store Heddinge. I saw it from the train on way to the coast, and knew I needed to come by on my way back to the capital. Just a magical place! Each and every house of different, but still similar design. I need to say, Danes are a smart nation. After spending another winter in here, I think I know a secret behind those colorful facades. It’s just so much better to live in a colorful surroundings when weather doesn’t really play along.
Have a good weekend, hope you’ll have a good one!
It’s unbelievable that we have already February. I can already tell you that it will be a month full of challenges and work, as I guess, the whole 2017 will look like. Quite a different year from all the others. One of the new things that happen lately is that I have got an internship, a part-time one for now, at an organization, which takes care of the biggest food festival in Denmark. I will be learning aspects of communication, SoMe and at some point also be a part of press release preparations… Exciting!
It might seem to you that I have taken a little bit of other direction, and I am giving up on sport events – nothing of that! I just want to learn in practical way, and as you already know, I love to cook and eat, so I couldn’t find better place to combine those two. I will have a little bit of organization on the schedule, since right now I need to manage my lectures, work, student organization meetings and internship – haha! – but nothing makes me more organized than overload of activities!
Last weekend, I have taken as a destination one of the nature highlights of Denmark, situated here on the island, ‘only’ 2,5 hours by public transportation from where I live. Stevns Klint is a 17 km long cliff coast located southerly from the capital of Copenhagen. You can admire it’s beauty, while taking a walk alongside the cliff on the path called ‘Trampestien’, which is divided onto sections of different length. I have begun my walk in Rødvig and walked until the lighthouse called Stevns Fyrcenter. It was an amazing walk of 13k surrounded by the fields, cliffs and the sea view… The only disadvantage was a muddy terrain, but whatever, you can always wash your shoes! You can find information about the route here (in Danish)!
Cannot wait for summer to come to go there one more time in green surroundings!
