Postcard from // Playa del Carmen, Mexico

Brandon and I enjoyed our honeymoon in the Mexican Riviera Maya earlier this summer. It was absolutely fantastic and the beaches were more beautiful that we could have imagined! When we travel, we try to integrate into the culture and place we’re in as much as possible, so we opted to not do the all-inclusive…

Norway Continued

I dont even know where to start, except for saying that this journey was epic, and that I recommend that everyone visit the Norwegian fjords sometime in their life. I know I’ll be back one day, with more time on my hands to camp, hike, and kayak for a few days to experience this gorgeous…

Postcard from Bergen, Norway

This summer I embarked on my first 100% solo adventure to Norway. I’m honestly not sure what inspired the trip initially (I don’t even know anyone who has been there,) but I started looking up photos online and became obsessed with this idea of an outdoor excursion to the fjords while I was in Scandinavia. Seriously, if…

Danish Summer

I wish I could find a way to encapsulate how amazing these past few weeks have been, but I just can’t do it justice. It’s been an absolute dream. It’s been peaceful. It’s been challenging. It’s been beautiful and sunny and gray and rainy. It’s been warm enough to visit the beach and as cold as…

Avec l’amour de Paris

Flashback to our weekend in Paris… Wow, what a fantastic trip! Brandon was able to get a three day weekend off so we jumped on the opportunity to go and see more of Europe. After a lot of debate, we decided on Paris, a place neither of us had been and very different from our tiny home…

#AdventureAlly

We’ve both spent the last few days burrowed up in our 475 sf apartment with some sort of stomach virus. Brandon came home from work mid-day on Friday as sick as a dog (I was already sick at home) and ever since then we’ve been nursing ourselves back to health. Being sick is never fun,…

Louisiana Museum of Modern Art

Another really great day trip we’ve enjoyed while here in Denmark was visiting the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art located on the Øresund Sound in Humlebæk. It took about 45 minutes by train to get to get there, which was a pretty fun journey since it was Brandon’s first train ride! We got a little too comfortable…

Vesterbro

I’ve enjoyed a day out and about in the Vesterbro District, full of trendy restaurants, coffee shops, street art, and boutique shops. I took a new route to get here – going south along Islands Brygge and across Bryggebroen which was a nice change from going directly through the middle of town (the traffic makes me…

Frederiksborg Slot

A few weeks ago we took a day trip to Hillerød, Denmark to see the Frederiksborg Castle, the largest Renaissance castle in Scandinavia. Hillerød is located about an hour north of Copenhagen by train.* I was pretty excited about this excursion because the pictures are absolutely beautiful and I was really excited to see the garden…

For the Love of Flowers

I am in love with all of the blooming flowers around town here in Denmark! There are roses everywhere and so many flower markets on the side of the street. I got a fresh bouquet of roses yesterday for only 10 Danish Krone, (only $1.46!!) I’m not sure why I have been so attracted to…

Copenhagen: Week One Highlights

I arrived to Copenhagen on a Tuesday morning, and Brandon was fortunate enough to run home from work for a few hours to meet me and help me get situated. We enjoyed a nice lunch together walked around a bit, and he pointed out a few places he thought I would enjoy. One in particular was…
