    Copenhagen guide for teens and tweens – TIVOLI GARDENS

    Anya Jensen 20th June 2020

    We are explorers. This is something I have always valued. Seeing exciting new places, seeing how the girls react, what they think, and how they form an opinion. Brains are a great thing, and as far as I am concerned – they more stuff I can put into these girls, the more their horizon will broaden, and they too will need to see, to learn to taste and to feel.…

  • TIVOLI – probably the best amusement park in the world

    Anya Jensen 23rd October 2017

    Copenhagen has the oldest amusement park in the World, and it is called Tivoli gardens. If you think fairground rides, candy floss and rollercoasters you are right, but Tivoli gardens is soo much more.  When I was a child, Tivoli was only open in the summer season; from April – October, and I remember it as a magic place where you came, once a year, for a very special day out. I remember…

  • Copenhagen and a bit a about the weather

    Anya Jensen 28th May 2023

    Many years ago, I had a conversation with a friend of mine, who live abroad, about the weather. I said, that in Copenhagen, (or at least I do this) people generally obsess about the temperature in the summer. – what I mean is – that you expect sunshine in the summer, and if it rains you get the hump, because – well, sunshine is scarce here. Now, I had a…

  • So is HALLOWEEN a thing now in Denmark?

    Anya Jensen 26th October 2018

    Have we celebrated Halloween here always? The short answer is NO. A mere 10 years ago, most Danes hadn’t even tasted a pumpkin, let alone handled one, but then Halloween happened upon us, and now (at least in Copenhagen and the surrounding boroughs) it is a B.I.G  thing. Now, lots of kids make Jack O’lanters, lots of kids dress up and go trick-or-treating, and lots of people participate by decorating their…

  • Simply Danish everyday life

    Anya Jensen 31st October 2016

    I have always been one for sharing bits and bobs from our lives. Not too much information, but just enough. Lately, I have shared less than usually, and I feel I have lost a bit of authenticity because of it. So I might get back to good old me, and share – not only everything that we do, but perhaps also adding thoughts and everyday hygge, and everyday life in between.…
