Went to Bath

So, the weekend before last I went to Bath in England to visit my friend Cordula, whom I lived with in Berlin. Bath is on the world heritage list and it feels like walking around in a Jane Austen novel. So naturally, we indulged in that world and dressed up, ate scones and saw old estates. All in all a very girly and fun trip!
(Photos are a raw edit, because I no longer have the editing programme I used to. Any recommendations for a good, cheap editing programme for mac?)
The first day, we took the train to Bristol to see Tyntesfield, a Natural Trust estate a little outside the city. Very Downton Abbey (here, Cordula is in Bristol, though)
Bristol was colourful despite the grey sky, and I loved the water that sliced its way through town.
Tyntesfield in all its many levels.
There was a nice tree and a goofy smile.
 The next day, I hung out with Jane Austen.
We went to the Royal Crescent, which was impossible to photograph well, so instead I took a photo of these adjacent buildings that sat nicely on a row.
Later, we went to the Fashion Museum and dressed up. Something I'd otherwise find too silly, but which was so much fun. Notice how well my shoes went with the dress..... And then we hung out with a group of Japanese girls and they were so much fun!
You get why this town is on the world heritage list. The Circus was very sweet, just a round 'square' of buildings from the Regency area. So beautiful.
On my last day, we went to see the Roman Baths. Built by the Romans circa 2000 years ago, it's one of the most well-preserved baths of that kind in the world. Bath lies on a net of natural springs, and the water was said to have healing powers back in the day.
Before catching the train to the airport, we had time for an all time England classic; the high tea. I could barely eat half of the coffee cake on top, but it was so good!

It's finally here! On Sunday, it was the most perfect spring day. Although it was a little windy and still quite chilly, I spent all day outside walking around with friends, laughing and drinking many cups of coffee. It was wonderful!
I'm sorry I'm not a very good blogger at the moment. I am super busy with work and projects and friends and all sorts of things. But I do check in regularly, if only to see that the site is still there. Hope you are too! And hope it's also spring where you are.
I love when the light casts dots all over a street like this morning the other day. Every day, I get a coffee to go and the walk from Nørreport to work is a favourite.
On Saturday, it was overcast and I was hungover (and perhaps still a little drunk from the night before...), but it didn't matter cause I spent the day with the brothers.
The breakfast table on Sunday was golden.
Here I am. Hi!
A blanket of spring at Assistens Kirkegård.
Again, window reflections. The best.
Copenhagen, and particularly the lakes, were plastered with people out enjoying the first rays.
Dronning Louise's Bro was packed as always. I don't think you'll find a better catwalk than that...
It was March 8, the international women's day, and people had put up coloured flags on the bridge and a demonstration went by.
We sat for a while by the water, trying to ignore the wind and just keep talking, but when it became too cold, we headed further up the street for pizza at Gorm's in Torvehallerne. Best Sunday ever.
