Brussels -> Luxembourg ๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ‡บย 

Last Friday I decided that I’ve seen enough of Brussels, I got up super early that morning. Managed to get myself out of my hotel room and headed to Brussels Noord, the train station. I bought a return ticket for 25โ‚ฌ ๐Ÿ˜… (INSANE HOW CHEAP IT IS!) And hopped on the train ๐Ÿš‚ 

I walked all over the city of Luxembourg, taking in everything and not believing that I spent 3 hours on a train and then ended up in a different country Just like that! 




       Notre Dame Cathedral is only a 10    

     minute walk from the train station ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ


                  

                     The dukes “house” ๐Ÿก  

                          Place d’Armes 


The streets are beautiful and the shops are incredible! Sadly I wasn’t able to shop a lot๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿผ that’s the shitty thing about travelling alone! I couldn’t carry everything! I was walking around with my camera, bag, shopping bag, pastries etc. Exhausted because of the heat and how much I walked ๐Ÿ˜‚ 


I also stopped by a restaurant since I was starving and the only thing I managed to eat during the train ride was raspberries๐Ÿ˜ซ at the restaurant I got duck breast with potatoes and season vegetables with pepper sauce on the side! ๐Ÿ˜ I don’t remember the name of the restaurant but I’m planing on writing a post about some of the best restaurants I’ve tried! And this one might be included! So stay tuned! 


So in conclusion, on Wednesday I started exploring! It all started with a short flight from Aalborg to Copenhagen. Where I then was stuck at the airport because of a delay with Brussels airlines! The delay had me miss the last train in to the city, so I had to take a cab and ended up almost paying 50โ‚ฌ I let the driver know that according to maps on iPhone, meaning the GPS, the hotel was only 14km away. The c*nt kept saying “no no no, you no understand” He kept saying it’s atleast 17-20km away! It would take 20-25 minutes blah blah.. -.- So I got scammed that easily! We ended up arriving 10 minutes after I got into the car ๐Ÿ™ƒ Even though he tried taking longer and more complicated routes & roads  ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Day 1. Brussels ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ชย 

So far so GOOD! The entire day has been amazing! I only wish that Laust was here! I really wish I could share this with him ๐Ÿ˜ฆ But hopefully next time we’ll go somewhere together! ๐Ÿ˜


I started my day at about 8-9 Am where I got ready and then stepped out the door at precisely 10 AM. I walked all the way to Grand Place, I managed to get a hotel right in the city centre for an okay price! Everything else was either too far out or fully booked ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿผ  


I snapped a lot of pictures ๐Ÿ˜…



Grand place! (Gigantic !!!) and full of tourists! (Including me ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜‚)

The Grand place is very beautiful! ๐Ÿ˜


I got lost in this city because of its beauty! 


After seeing and exploring Grand place I went over to the fountain of Manneken Pis, it’s unknown what the story about the peeing boy is, but there are many tales. There was a big crowd there taking pictures of and with the fountain. It was very hard to get a good shot! But somehow I managed! As a souvenir from that place I got chocolates that are shaped like the peeing boy! ๐Ÿ˜‚


After the peeing boy, I decided to walk to the European Parliament! I walked through Brussels park ๐ŸŒฒ ๐ŸŒณ and I keep falling more and more in love with this place! ๐Ÿ˜


Old statues in the park, this is a very big park by the way. ๐Ÿ˜…


The European Parliament was something else! I couldn’t get in because I was too late for the visit tour, and the next one was way later, and I couldn’t be bothered waiting there! But I saw it! And I took pictures of it! ๐Ÿ˜‚ I saw a bunch of important people, with their guards and police escorts etc. That was something I’ve never seen before, it was intense! 


Shortly after I was done there I walked back to the peeing boy! ๐Ÿ˜…


I got myself Belgian waffle with Belgian chocolate! ๐Ÿ˜ SO YUMMY ๐Ÿ˜‹ 

โ€‹โ€‹
And lastly for dinner I got myself a chicken burger! 


This burger was probably the best one I’ve had! Beats every other fried chicken place ๐Ÿ— I got the burger from Hectors Chicken! ๐Ÿ˜ Freshly made! Fast and delicious ๐Ÿ˜‹ 

That is all for today! I’m looking forward tomorrow’s adventures!

Day 1. Brussels ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ชย 

Finally a getaway!!ย 


So after stress studying from the start of this term until now.. I can say it was totally worth it! The group I’ve been working with has been truly amazing! We became a team a family! We carried each other and pushed each other to do our very best! And guess what?? All of us got a 10 on this project & exam! Which is the second highest grade!! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ I’m so happy!!! Because I’ve really earned my reward!! ๐Ÿ˜‚

See I do this all the time.. reward myself with anything I feel like.. I highly believe in that you should treat yourself! ๐Ÿ˜


This outfit is from last weekends pubcrawl! Which my team actually won!! I won’t get into details but it was brilliant! We won every challenge I think? And we won a bottle of shots at the last bar! ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ I wore a simple skirt from primark & a corset bra from H&M. Didn’t feel like dressing all fancy when it was a day full of challenges at different bars ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜ 

So tomorrow I’ll be flying off to Belgium ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ช!! So exited, well earned relaxing holiday! It’s short though, until Saturday ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I’ll fly back to Copenhagen and go to a birthday party and then get straight back to uni ๐Ÿ˜ซ An introduction to a new theme, new groups and new everything! All over again! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ 


New in! A fresh birkin bag! ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŠ For my spoiled self! I’m so happy ๐Ÿ˜ I got the orange one because it will always be a classic in my eyes ๐Ÿ˜

Finally a getaway!!ย 

Treat yourself ๐Ÿ’–

I’m crazy for beauty products of all kinds! A few days ago I made an order from cocopanda and once it arrived I couldn’t wait to try everything out!! ๐Ÿ˜

I started with a foot mask! 


I’ve used similar footmasks in the past. But this is definitely the best one! I had Laust try it too. It really works! And our feet were so soft! No matter what lotion or scrubs you use, a foot mask is always good to use in between. It takes care of everything. I recommend doing a foot mask once a month. ๐Ÿ™‚


I also used patches for eyes and for my nose. The patches for the eyes are amazing! It has vitamins and loads of moisture! Also ordered from cocopanda ๐Ÿ™‚ Helps with fine lines as well as puffiness. Feels really good to pamper oneself like that every now and then. 


I recommend them strongly! It’s perfect for when you barely get any sleep ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿผ 


I always try to pamper myself as often as possible. Not only because I love it ๐Ÿ˜‚ But because is actually really good for my skin. Especially since it’s getting colder here and dry skin is something I really hate. ๐Ÿ™ˆ

I have a ton of products I’m planing on making posts about ๐Ÿ˜

Treat yourself ๐Ÿ’–

Feels like home ๐Ÿกย 

Today has been a busy day, but so has most days since we’ve moved in. 

I have not had time to update on how everything went down. We moved in on the 1st of August. We also managed to get most of our things here. We have our own table which we made using a piece of marble and wooden legs.


We also made our own bed! Using 8 EU-pallets and only placing a thick heavy mattress on top. And it’s perfect! We store boardgames and other things in the gaps. (I’ll post pictures of our bed in another post later on) 

We have also bought a ton of furniture which I’ll also post about later. A room divider/shelf unit, a sofa and two chairs. 


Can you imagine the paintings that we’ve hung up are from my rebellious teenage years?? I can’t believe I’ve kept them. 

One of the chairs that we bought from an antique shop here in Aalborg. It resembles the chairs I’ve had growing up so I basically just had to buy it. The mirror is lended to us bu Laust sister Lise. And it fits perfectly with all of our furniture and it’s also the perfect size! ๐Ÿ˜


Our second chair was also bought from the same antique shop in Aalborg. And our drawer/desk/shelf combination was from a second hand shop in Skรธrping. 


Last but not least our bed. It’s lower than most beds but that’s because we only have brought 4 of our EU pallets. And there are 4 left at Laust’s parents house. But it will probably still be lower than average but we really don’t mind. It’s different and it suits us. ๐Ÿ™‚ 


Above our bed we’ve hung our Where’s wally? Puzzle. We’ve completed it a while back and it took us about 9-10 hours. We then glued it on a piece of wood to have it hanging here. ๐Ÿ™‚ 

I will make a separate blog post later on about everything else. But so far so good! 

We are settling in. And it’s happened so fast! We’ve had Laust’s family visiting us today and it was so good seeing them! We’ve both missed them a lot! They also brought a lot of our things and helped us think of solutions for our tiny living arrangement ๐Ÿ˜…

Roaming in Rome ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡นย 


I’ve never actually posted about everything I was up to in Rome.. and since I can’t sleep I thought I’d share a few pictures and stories! 

About five months ago I got to travel to Rome! It was spontaneous as everything else I do, and it was EXITING! 

As I’ve written before, I stayed at Domus Sessoriana, a hotel that used to be a church, but was divided in half, the part I stayed at was still connected to the church. And so the other half of the building was the church. I got to see so many nuns and priests from all over the world ๐ŸŒŽ who came to Rome out of faith. No one realises how big of a deal religion is until they see how it unites people who come from different countries, backgrounds, ethnicities etc. 

Anyway, so I got to stay at the top of building, and I had an entire terrace all to myself. Except in the morning. Because that’s where they served breakfast. 


And so that was my everyday view, I was a bit far away from where all the action is. But I liked it. At least I could sleep at night! And enjoy the walks to the main centre! 


I walked along these streets everyday. And it was never dull. The air was warm but not humid. The people were happy! The ladies looked very stylish and the men were flirty! 

It was just as my mother had described it! She warned me about how ‘slick’  Italian men can be and she was right! ๐Ÿ˜‚


On several occasions I got approached by men who thought it was okay to keep walking beside me and keep on talking to me as I didn’t even show an interest and told them to leave me alone. ๐Ÿ˜ก

That one guy actually kept saying how he has multiple girlfriends in different countries and kept saying it’s okay if I went out with him ?? That it’s just the way of life ๐Ÿ˜‚luckily I got away from him when I told him he was a creep! He also kept asking me if he could see/play with my feet ?? And he’d buy me ice cream if I let him! ๐Ÿ˜‚ 

There were a few other ones standing outside restaurants saying: “For you, everything free!” 


The colosseum is breathtaking. From upclose and afar.

Rome has changed me. Every city I’ve been to has. But Rome was something else. 


I also got to see Trevi Fountain. The ancient city of Rome had a lot to offer. My legs were sore every night when I got home. I spent my entire days walking. According to my apps I walked about 20-23km a day on average! That’s the most I’ve ever walked! 


Spectacular! Sometimes I can’t believe that I have actually been to some of those places! I somehow get so caught up in the “real world” and tend to lose my free spirit. But when I look the pictures I’ve taken I can find myself again. 


Ruins from the ancient city. Everything has been preserved. And I can’t wait revisit this place! 


I believe that I grow a lot from travelling. That I learn. My mind expands further. I indulge in cultures. I meet new people. I gain experience. And I most definitely enjoy myself. 

I remember growing up with a lot of close minded people. The judgemental kind. And I’ve always noticed how I was different. Not trying to be cocky or anything. But they are so put off by everyone and everything. And they believed they were the best. And they looked down on different cultures and values. Their minds were & are so closed off they couldn’t see genuine happiness. They had to put other people down so they could feel superior? But seriously? They are missing out. They’ll always miss out, on life amongst other things. Who they were 6-7 years ago. Is exactly who they are now, and who they’ll always be. 

I’m grateful for everything I’ve experienced and for all the amazing people in my life. 


I’m very exited for what’s coming next!

I’m already missing this place! I can’t believe how fast time flies! It was only four days ago I was laying on a sunny beach โ˜€๏ธ without a care in the world! 
A few days before we started packing, we went sailing with Laust’s mum and Dad! It was so much fun! It was my second time sailing and I got seasick ๐Ÿ˜ท!! 


We sailed to Tribunj and enjoyed a few drinks! 

 

I had a bottled cosmo and a bottled sex on the beach! Absolutely refreshing in that type of heat!


I’m incredibly lucky to have such an amazing mother in law! Everyone knows the horror of the in laws BUT GUESS WHAT! I don’t have any of that!! Laust’s mum and dad are the most chill and laid back in laws I’ve ever met! And they’re so kind and caring! And I can always be myself around them! And have a good time!


Me floating next to my mother in law Bente, in the incredible waters of Croatia! 

This picture was taken by Laust’s dad Sten, and it really captured how relaxing this entire trip has been โ˜€๏ธ ๐ŸŒŠ
