Road trip

By | Life, Photos | No Comments

I took a trip to Estonia for Christmas… figured i should take my car to fix it up a bit… baaad idea. I spend the whole vacation on it! Also, when driving through Poland, take the road passing Warsaw! the highway is finished so even with the road tax, it is totally worth it (driving back to DK on it was sooo much easier then taking the other road when driving towards estonia!) so grazy road-trip, repairs, new year’s in riga, another road trip and an unexpected week off afterwards should sum it all up :)
And goodbye to the best year in my life so far! just have to hope theres some more like that in stock for me! :)

New Apartment

By | Life | No Comments

So i finally managed to find a place of my own… discovered a really cheap offer (dkk1200 ()/month) it was located in the middle of nowhere… tiny village called filskov but since it was as close to work as grindsted and seeing as i spend all my weekends in arhus or other places anyway, i just took it without even seeing it first. when i got the keys though, i was in for a suprise- The place turned out to be real nice ^^ click the image for more photos.

For the last month or so ive been living next to this little place called Grindsted. Its a small town with a population of 9,548. Small, nice,cozy but pretty much dead when it comes to entertainment it seems (as long as you dont have many friends around i guess). So heres a small visual journey to and through the town

End of an Era

By | Life, Photos | No Comments

As sad as it might be,  all things come to an end.  This Semester in Odder Hojskole was really a blast and im grateful for being able to take part in it.  The social experience you can get in a place like this is absolutely unique. I will sure miss the place. Well, the people mostly- In the end it felt like we had known each other for ages. Eh, times go on, cant stay stuck in a bubble of denial, i will stay in denmark for a while it seems so im sure il meet many familiar faces sooner or later ;) til then, see ya all and thanks for the wonderful time and moments!

Fun facts:

  • time: 5 months
  • Hard alcohol consumption: 15 Litres
  • cider: 144 cans
  • beer/misc: ?who knows?

And a few select shots from past few months inside the post, full galleries on fb here and here

Odder Højskole

By | Life, Photos | No Comments

It is time to return to Denmark! I signed up for a semester in a danish “hojskole” wiki link in order to kill half a year and to get some practice with my hobbies and such (its a perfect place for that!). For the subjects i chose photography (with film!) drawing, model dawing, creativity and form, painting/history, yoga, choir and beginners music. So far, most of the first week has been filled with introduction activities and a few classes but it sure has gone beyond all my expectations, its really great in here- good atmosphere, nice people, great teachers, lots of motivation and a cozy social setting. Quite happy for coming here!

theres loads of photos from the first week if you hit “more”
