This is Oregon Girl Around the World, a travel and lifestyle blog sharing stories from a life across borders. Based in Copenhagen, Denmark. Exploring Scandinavia and beyond with a growing family of five.

We travel with an emphasis on experiences, not things. Trying to read as many pages in this big beautiful book of the world as we can.

SUMMER HOUSE HYGGE

The Danish sommerhus is simple. And cozy. Not lavish or large. A cottage. A home. Near the sea. Clean and concise. Like the Danes. And dare I say it – darn hyggeligt. You may have heard this Danish word hygge. You too can feel hygge. You don’t have to be Danish. And a sommerhus is a rigtigt hyggeligt* place to try.

SUMMER IN COPENHAGEN – MUST DO’s

Summer in Copenhagen. It’s amazing here. The Danish summer days are long. Full of that Nordic light we all so craved over winter. At midsummer’s peak, celebrated on the 23rd of June with the annual Sankt Hans aften festivities, the sun shines 17.5 hours in Copenhagen. There is so much to love about summer in Copenhagen.

FALL IN SOUTHERN SWEDEN

Sweden is super cool. Yep, you heard me. I know, I know. I live in Denmark. But our Scandi neighbor really is. Cool. In a completely different way than Denmark. Want to know the coolest part about Sweden? Nature. Lots of nature. And all of that land and all of that nature is available to everyone.
