29 December 2013
I arrived in Montreal on January 1st. It was -16 degrees and the snow was intense. I was thrilled about finally being on adventure, speaking French again, getting to know new people and a new culture.
took us to Québec City where we climbed a waterfall and got acquainted with the local drink, St. Georges...
New York, my all time favourite city. It was cold as hell (even compared to Montreal!), but I enjoyed every second of the city.
partying inside for the Danes.
Danes were gathered, but we made the best of it in the few rays of sun.
summer arrived. It took one week; 6 days after a 30 cm snow storm, the Gulf stream changed and it was 28 degrees. The trees exploded with a fluorescent bang, and I spent most of my hours out on the balcony with Sophie and Maxime and lots of ice coffees.
brother came to visit for a few days before his Canadian into the wild trip. We ate smoked meat sandwiches and roamed around.
picnics in Parc Jeanne-Mance.
a summery Copenhagen. I had two months of nomadness and vacation before moving to Berlin, and I spent them well.
homecoming party on AnCa's rooftop.
bike trips to Dyrehaven with champagne and laughs.
lazy Vesterbro days with AnCa soaking up the summer vibe.
Piran on the Slovenian coast. It was a great discovery and a quaint mix of Italian aesthetics and Eastern European charm.
and the view from it! - blew me away. I fully enjoyed days of reading Fitzgerald in the sun, picking fresh figs off the trees in the garden, going exploring in the mountains and eating and drinking the best of Italy.
I moved to Berlin. Something I had been waiting for for two years. I had so many ideas of how it would be, and a great deal of fear of getting badly disappointed as well, but Berlin and I quickly rekindled our love for each other.
easing back into my city. In the beginning of September, Kathrine came to visit, and we drove around laughing, drinking coffee and enjoying life.
back to Copenhagen for a few days to celebrate Christine's birthday, and Jonas' as well, and it was nice seeing friends before hurrying back to Kreuzberg.
last month in the Kreuzberg apartment, and roomie Cordula and I became instant friends.
heart of Westberlin. I went exploring in the old streets where the rich Berliners live, and it was interesting getting to know a very different part of the city than the one I'm used to.
the leaves turned orange, I finally got my own apartment, and when October became November, I moved my whole life to Neukölln.
making myself a base.
Chris came to visit. We did lots of talking, museum-watching and coffee-drinking, and it was great hanging out with her, just the two of us.
very spontaneous visit - which turned out to be a long weekend of greatness with my old Berlin roomie. I don't know anyone that can light up a day like her.
panicking over a school assignment that I ended up quitting. I hope 2014 will be the year I finally finish journalism school!
birthday was celebrated surrounded by people I love, and I felt so overwhelmed and lucky to have such dear friends.
made the best of Christmas this year, and I hope we get to see more of each other in 2014.
