So after 4 years of living in denmark, i finally had a chance to go to roskilde… all of a sudden a week before the festival, out company decided to go and have our own display there.. so 6 days of party and a few shifts of work in between… and when theres party in roskilde then its rather serious, hardcore party… i really cant understand how all these danes survive 8 days of it without much of an effort :D
overall, very dirty, messy, drunk event that smells a lot like pee… but if ou go with good friends (or find some good friends there ) then it is pretty damn excellent… despite the lousy line-up they had this year :D
Since legoland and lallandia are around the corner, i went and took a small walk and a few “tourist shots”… way too cold to do anything more… unless youre a kid :) apparently its free to get in to legoland for an hour after the rides are closed… And lallandia is a big water park with artificial village, shopping street, mini golf and an arcade from what i understand… water park is with a ticked, the rest you can just walk into.
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.
So along with a car come bunch of overlooked issues… replaced the sealing for the oil pan due to a leak (hell of a messy job)
tried fixing the muffler with some paste but somehow it broke completely, luckily thansen.dk had a nice cheap replacement. Also had to drill out the ignition coil since it stopped turning. got a replacement, switched it and extracted the immobilizer chip from the old key to duck tape it to the sensor. Also got a pair of new speakers for some of those longer trips.
Well, when it comes to denmark then having a car is a a costly business… new ones have 200% tax on top of the original price and old ones are moving rust buckets. in most cases bike and a bus are a better choise… unless you live in a place like grindsted where public transport is kind of a joke (hence my new purchase) so heres a quick intro to save some time if you stumbled upon this page looking for some short, simple information.
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
Well, Hojskole is over. I had a nice chill time in Estonia for a few weeks and now i will be heading back to Denmark.
I shall Start working In an architecture company- dealing with websites, photography, 3D/visualization, print, etc.
Should be pretty fun, looking forward to it! So my new home base will be in the countryside close to Billund/Grindsted.
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!
