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 

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!

Detour ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡น


We somehow ended up staying here longer than planned.. everything has been going well and smooth since we left Denmark. But after a nap at a petrol station in Austria, we had to stop, there was an issue with one of the tires, and we had to wait for help. A GENUINE SOS MOMENT. The feeling of being stranded was overwhelming! And after a couple of hours we got told that nothing can be done until Monday! ๐Ÿ˜ฉ 
So we now have to spend another day in Austria! We are staying in Trieben at a lovely Austrian hotel with a breakfast buffet ๐Ÿ˜ And this place is incredible! We ate breakfast and had another nap which made us all feel a lot better! Then we decided to go hiking! The view is unreal in this area, the air is so warm and yes it is very humid, but it’s so fresh! The hike was blissful! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ 

*Laust and I truly enjoying this moment* 

* I of course needed Laust to “pose” a bit for the camera* 

* This particular view is breathtaking * #๐Ÿ˜




* Laust’s mum and dad looking cute as always* 

* Laust’s mum Bente with Anker & Laust * 


After the hike we went to a cafรจ for some beer, ice cream and coffee ๐Ÿบ ๐Ÿฆ โ˜•๏ธ

Sunday night๐Ÿ˜ด

This week had it’s ups and downs but nothing could possibly ever break the spirit of a strong determined woman like me ๐Ÿ˜Š 

My sister baked us kladdkaka to end the week sweetly off and prepare us for a week filled with a lot of work </3 I’m not looking forward to college because that would actually mean that I have to really get back into the routine of studying and getting up early every morning and falling asleep early.. which I’m really bad at ๐Ÿ‘Ž 

(Dima is really good at baking and I honestly would’ve been a monster if I hadn’t eaten a big slice of this kladdkaka ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ )

I also have a lot of work and plans and ugh I really need to just skip this entire month and start April and wake up in sunny Portugal ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡น with a book ๐Ÿ“š in my hand ๐Ÿคš laying on the beach ๐ŸŒŠ  

I’ll do my best to motivate myself till then! And I’m absolutely ashamed that Portugal is the only official holiday I’ve booked this year so far ๐Ÿ˜ฆ </3 me flying back and forth between my two current homes doesn’t count obviously. Oh well that’s another thing I need to tend to now๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜ฉ Finidng another place I want to travel to.. ๐Ÿ˜ซ
