SHARING TRAVEL STORIES FROM AROUND THE WORLD

For those of us who live in the Northern Hemisphere, it is decidedly summer. At least it is in Denmark. And while not as warm and sunny as last summer, we’ve had enough blue skies and warm breezes to keep us happy. This year we’re taking a grand European road trip from Copenhagen to the south of France. Living here without a car, we normally pop on a plane when we want to travel out of Scandinavia. But, there is something about the freedom of driving through that allows for spontaneity and flexibility in our route.

We’ve got a few stops planned and a few more starred on our maps. Can’t wait. I’ll be sharing and posting on Instagram as we putter along through Denmark, Germany, Belgium, France, Switzerland and back. If you’ve got any don’t misses or epic favorites – throw them my way. Like I said, we’re flexible! Cheers from here.

Hej from here! It’s been a big month for us in Scandinavia. Summer has started. Officially in Denmark as of June 1. We’ve celebrated our first Danish graduation and are loving all the traditions that come with that right of passage. Like the unique studenterhuer, or students hats that all of the graduates wear. At the end of the month, we will welcome our son and his friends to our house as they ride around town on the back of a big truck in a graduate parade. It’s loud. It’s crazy. It looks so fun. As the Danes say, tillykke! Congratulations!

Cheers from here travel peeps. If you are in Northern Europe lately where we are, I hope you’ve been enjoying the beautiful weather. While not necessarily swimming at the beach (although some are) temperatures in Scandinavia, the skies have been blue and the sunshine shiny. A few new freckles and load of Vitamin D later, we are soaking it in. As you do up here. We had our version of Spring Break, half term or Easter Break in Denmark last week and it was perfect weather to prioritize some local adventures around Copenhagen and across the bridge to Sweden, a short thirty to forty minutes away.  While I may not be able to see sweet Scandi sister Sweden from my house, there are many places in the city where you can.

Faraway Files has been enjoying the break as well and are ready to read what you been up to on your travels near and far. Lay some links on us. It’s travel link up time today! And tomorrow. Cheers from here.

It’s time for the Faraway Files travel blog community link share. I wish I could take you to one of my favorite places in Copenhagen for a coffee in person. Until then, I’ll share a bit about them and you pick the place!
