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!

Harbourside – Copenhagen edition

To those of you who have been reading my blog from the beginning (or my friends in Bristol, ha), you already know my favourite thing about living in Bristol, UK, was access to the lovely Harbourside. It’s where I’ve spent much of my time and taken many a walk to contemplate, have deep chats with friends, check out the CARGO eateries, and get sunburnt in the summers. By the way, Bristol recently made national headlines when the Colston statue was dumped in the harbour during the recent BLM protest – a huge moment given Bristol’s maritime history.

Anyway, it pleases me greatly that there’s plenty of that Harbourside living in Copenhagen. I’ve only just begun exploring around Islands Brygge/Sydhavnen. There’s a lot of hanging out and swimming in these areas, plenty of modern buildings, and pedestrian paths by the water are very clean and well-kept.

Have a lovely day 🙂
