Islands Brygge by night

Wow, is it New Years eve already? Did 2020 really just come and go like that? So much has happened this year – I moved to Denmark after almost 10 years in the UK, started a job that I love, and found a one-in-a-lifetime kind of partner. I am eternally grateful for the fortune and privilege that has led me to where I am now after all the blood, sweat, and tears, and the faith I put in myself to get through the challenges. I don’t take any of the positive changes that have happened in my life for granted! I will always remember and be thankful for 2020. I’ve learned and grown so much.

Also, this month my blog had the highest number of views ever, I guess you all really enjoyed by Christmas-themed posts, I’m glad! 🙂

Now you’ll have to forgive me for the quality of these photos, as I have no tripod and they are all hand-held pictures. They’re really not the best photos. But I thought these reflective, sparkly night shots were a good note to end the wild year of 2020…They were taken in Islands Brygge, which is a hugely popular area for outdoor swimming (especially in the summer, of course) close to Glyptoteket and Tivoli. Out of all the public places I’ve been over summer, this area was probably the most crowded (hello Corona). When it’s a little colder and quieter like it is nowadays, it is a wonderful place to have a quiet walk, admire the lights, and collect your thoughts in the evening.

Hope you are all safe and well, and happy New Years eve!

Teglholmen/Sluseholmen, Copenhagen

One of the things I like most about Copenhagen is how walkable some of the modern, residential harbour areas are. I’ve never been in a city where it feels like you have a lot to “see” even when all you’re doing is walking past a bunch of apartments by the water.

As you will see from the pictures, there is an explanation for this – the buildings happen to be very interesting and fun to look at from an architectural standpoint. It’s also fun just to walk around, point to a bunch of apartments that look worthy of moving into, and do a bit of imaginary ‘apartment-shopping’ in your head 🙂 Enjoy!
