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

Best FOUR CHEESE pizza in Croatia ๐Ÿ• ๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‡ทย 



Laust took me on a dinner date where we ordered a JUMBO pizza! It was almost as big as the table ! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ•(it kinda was more cheese than actual pizza BUT WHO CARES WHEN IT TASTES THIS GOOD)  it is definitely the best pizza on the island, the resturants name is Makina, and it’s in Jezera. 

Jezera is a city on the island of Murter. And it’s one of the prettiest places I’ve ever been to! ๐Ÿ˜



This picture is from one of our hikes. During our two weeks trip, we hiked up and down the mountains to discover hidden parts of the island ๐ŸŒด such as the cliffs that lead to clear blue waters. 


The water was incredible! It was full of sea urchles. So I had to buy shoes I could swim in. 


Sea Urchles are ocean hedgehogs, Laust took one out of the water for me to see it. I’ve never seen a creature like that ever before! They are incredible! They die easily though when people step on them or when they’re out of the water for too long! But we made sure that didn’t happen to this one! 

Sea urchles are very delicate and they’re delicious! They are an important delicacy in some parts of the world! You just open one and sprinkle some lemon juice over it and serve it!

We’re currently at a restaurant relaxing, but earlier today we went sailing, and took a short dip in the ocean. It was colder than usual but it was alright. I got a bit seasick shortly after we got going, since I’m not used to sailing, IT WAS MY FIRST TIME EVER!!! But it was fun!! 


Here’s Laust enjoying a cold one when we got back to land ๐Ÿบ 

I’ll post more pictures, videos etc later on. They’re still on my camera ๐Ÿ˜… โ˜€๏ธ ๐ŸŒŠ ๐Ÿšค

So today was a day where we pretty much needed a break from phones etc. We woke up around 10:30 am, and packed our bags and headed up to the mountains. I brought along my camera, so it wasn’t a complete break from electronics! But it was a good start! 

We walked about two kilometres and found the ocean right in front of us. 


The view was incredible! 

We hiked back down on the other side of the island, and there was a gem. That really delighted us! 


We layed our things down, and jumped in the water ๐ŸŒŠ We also did a bit of snorkelling! ๐Ÿ˜ The ocean is really deep, and there are incredible things down there! 



We swam along the fish, and enjoyed the beauty of the ocean, and although we were only out in four metres deep waters,  we saw a lot of sea urchins, sea cucumbers, catfish, sea beam and a whole lot of other fish! ๐ŸŸ 


We obviously did some posing ๐Ÿ˜… 


And Laust is the best “instagram/blog husband ever~ 


And now my skin is peeling off and I really need to start wearing sunscreen and stop over using tanning oils. But for once! I ACTUALLY HAVE A PROPER TAN ๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿฟโ˜€๏ธ

๐Ÿ” Thursdayย 

We got up at 6 am had breakfast and left the house at 8. We traveled for about 2 hours to get to Laust’s school in Malmรถ. His school is really impressive! They have an indoor skatepark and it’s gigantic! ๐Ÿ˜ 

After he finished up at school we went for a walk and ended up going to the cafรจ where we had our first date and our very first coffee together. We went to that cafรจ on our wedding day too. Right after the ceremony. We also hung a lock with our names on it.


And almost a year later, IT’S STILL THERE!!! ๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธ

We got coffe and I had tons of emails to send, so we stayed for about an hour at Le crossiant, which is a French cafรจ that had us reminiscing about our good times in France ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท. 

We then went back and continued our walk, and decided to visit my old place. I used to live in a flat that was above a cafรจ where I worked a few years ago. I got to show and tell Laust about the place. The good and the bad. The place kinda looked the same, but at the same time it didn’t. They have done major changes, expanded the kitchen and built another room on the second floor. I miss living there. And I’m so very grateful for having had the opportunity to be surrounded by the people who run it. And they’re one of the few people I can say thank you to. It’s thanks to them and others that I am where I am today. 

After saying hi to a few people, and getting shocked over the fact that so many have moved..  we walked around so more, and thn than I finally went and saw a doctor. 

I found out that I’m alright, but for more precise tests I need to go to Bjรคrred and get a check up. But I suffer from anxiety and stress. 

We then decided to get the train back to Copenhagen and grab something to eat. We barely ate anything other than breakfast and a vegetarian lunch that day.. which was basically a curry bean sandwich.. I’m not that into beans ๐Ÿค“

Laust wanted to go to yoburger but I was too hungry to walk all the way there, so we went to Tgi Fridays and got burgers. DELICIOUS BURGERS ๐Ÿ˜

We started by getting appetisers, I got mozzarella sticks and Laust got chicken strips. The burger I got was the jack Daniels chicken sandwich, which isn’t really a burger burger ๐Ÿ” and Laust pulled meat burger which had a big chunk of homemade delicious fried onions ๐Ÿ” 


I got myself a glass of lemonade ๐Ÿ‹ everything about this meal was perfect!!

 

Definitely one of the best burgers I’ve had. 

The best burger place in order of tastiness: 

  1. Five guys 
  2. O’Learys 
  3. Tgi Fridays 


The best part about the meal and the entire day, is this guy here ๐Ÿ’– The purpose of the spoil yourself parade yesterday, was mostly because Laust got accepted to the school he applied for, and I’M SO PROUD OF HIM!! He’s done an amazing job!! And he’s earned it! ๐Ÿ˜ We also got ourself an apartment!!! Thanks to Laust’s sister Lise!! ๐Ÿ˜ She posted a story on her instagram and got a heaps of messages, and one of those messages had the perfect apartment for us!! ๐Ÿ˜ It all seems unreal! I still can’t believe it! But everything is falling into place!!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ
