  • A bit about age and what comes next

    Anya Jensen 19th September 2023

    So I recently hit a milestone! Another digit in my age, and it kinda threw me into a random mix of feelings. On one hand, I realised that I had more time behind me, than in front of me, but on the other hand, it made me realize how LUCKY I was to still be here, healthy, breathing and able. You see, my Grandmother once told me, that age was…

  • 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…

  • Weekend shenanigans

    Anya Jensen 14th May 2023

    Well, finally Spring arrived here in Copenhagen – and what a weekend!! We celebrated not 1 but 2 Birthdays which was lovely. Paul & Audrey – so congratulations to the both of them. I truly enjoyed being outdoors, rummaging in the garden and creating things that grow. We live in the city but are lucky to have an apartment with a small garden attached. We are also next to the…

    Anya Jensen 22nd April 2023

    Well well well, it’s really been a while. Not sure if people even blog anymore, but I’m going to make a go of it again. I haven’t blogged since 2021, so Hello there – thanks for stopping by.

  • Knuthenborg Safari Park

    Anya Jensen 25th July 2021

    KNUTHENBORG IS REALLY A SAFARI PARK LOCATED IN THE SOUTH OF ZEALAND.  When we say Safari Park-we mean SAFARI PARK. Knuthenborg is where you get to see animals in an environment almost close to the real thing without any cages. (only the tigers and the wolves for obvious reasons). You drive through the Savannah and see giraffes, elephants in the biggest enclosure in Europe – rescued from a circus. There are…

  • Camp adventure and SKOVTÅRNET

    Anya Jensen 16th July 2021

    Last year I created a go-to guide for parents with teens and tweens visiting Denmark – mainly the Capital of Copenhagen and the island of Zealand. There are SOO many absolutely amazing places to visit, and we wanted to share the ones that made our hearts beat just a little bit faster. We started at Skovtårnet (the forest tower) and Camp Adventure in Næstved: In the middle of a vast…

  • When a staycation is a good idea!

    Anya Jensen 2nd June 2021

    Reklame/made in collaboration with Hotels.com, but all views are my own. Holiday plans have been postponed for another year. People are still worried about travelling. Many haven’t received their vaccinations yet, and have had to come up with new plans for holidaying this year. To be honest – when you put your mind to it, exploring your own country is actually a brilliant idea: You don’t have to travel too far.…

    reklame/inviteret The girls were lucky to attend the KunstLab art school at Louisiana Museum for modern art during the last winter season.

  • GÆKKEBREVE – a Danish Easter tradition.

    Anya Jensen 30th March 2021

    When Easter is approaching, Danish children make and send out Gækkebreve.  Traditionally these small letters always included a Vintergæk (Snowdrop/Galanthus) which is where the name stems from. It’s meant to be a letter to ‘tease’  (at drive gæk med) someone by making them guess who sent it. A small poem or verse is written in the middle of the paper. You can make up your own poem or use one of the…
