SHARING TRAVEL STORIES FROM AROUND THE WORLD

Hello travel peeps! We’re back! Well – I’m almost back. Leaving Latvia later today after a lovely winter break across the Baltic Sea from Copenhagen. It has been the perfect place for a city break plus winter fun for our whole family. We had an adventure taking the train from Riga and getting off at the wrong stop to trek through a snowy forest, snag a ride from the passing bus and finally find our destination – the Latvian winter sports center in Sigulda. Here you can slide down a regulation bobsled, skeleton and luge track like the big kids. It was a blast. And then so fun to see some of the live action happening in South Korea from Latvia, knowing the turns some of those athletes took to get to Pyeong Chang. Literally. More coming soon on the blog!

SHARING TRAVEL STORIES FROM AROUND THE WORLD

We did it! At least those of us who call the Northern Hemisphere their home made it! Up here in Denmark, that is an accomplishment for sure! Phew. Another January successfully navigated. And while the weather is still a pretty solid grey today, I was definitely grateful for the sunny blue blues we had grace our skies on Wednesday. It was a perfect day for a giant walk into town to meet friends for pie.

Does food take you places? I am a huge fan of trying the local cuisine on vacation, but what about when you get home? Sometimes we pick up a pack of spices or other dry good that we can take back to help recreate a bit of the tastes we tried and loved when away. I put my Greek oregano on my feta and tomatoes and cucumbers here in damp Copenhagen and it almost feels like Kefalonia. Almost. But it’s a nice memory to conjure.

Hej from Copenhagen! That’s Danish for Hi! If you know me, you’ve probably heard me say it. Or you’ve read it here on the blog. Hej! Don’t worry it’s pronounced the same as Hi! At least for an American. *wink wink. This past December marked our three year anniversary of living in Denmark. And this month is my three-year blog-iversary. Yep. That’s a thing. What started as a way to share posts about my life in Denmark that were just a little too long for Facebook has become something so much more. And I just wanted to say thank you to those who have visited, read, supported, commented, shared and high fived me along the way.

Happy New Year! Godt Nytår from Denmark! We just celebrated our fourth New Year’s Eve in Copenhagen and it was as crazy as ever. Fireworks everywhere. It’s fantastisk. That’s Danish for fantastic. How did you celebrate? Do you do a fancy affair, all glittered and sequined? Or do you enjoy a gourmet dinner? Just a picnic at the beach? Or quiet and cozy? Me? I love the way Danes blow out the old year with a bang. I find it a blast. Pun intended! Continue reading “Faraway Files #59”
