THE TWIRLING TRAVELER
When this blogpost is being posted we just started our three month sabbatical! Ever since I’ve been in a relationship with Hielke I knew I wanted to do some sort of long term traveling with him. We are both avid travelers, having visited many countries together and we both did long travels before. Hielke combined volunteering with traveling in South America, while I traveled through Australia with a friend and studied Spanish in Barcelona. In this post I will update you regarding the process of preparing for our sabbatical.
We stayed three nights in Copenhagen, the capital city of Denmark. After having a lovely stay in Aarhus, my mother and I took the Flixbus to Copenhagen for € 15 per person. The Flixbus was pretty ideal, we had a hassle free transfer and got to see the bridges connecting different parts of Denmark. I found it pretty funny that at times Copenhagen really reminded me of Amsterdam with all its canals. The Danish language looks and sounds a bit like Dutch at well, so it was really easy to feel at home in this city! After this visit I had a slight preference for Aarhus, but I find it really difficult to point out what the reason of that is.
From Hamburg you can take a direct train to Aarhus in Denmark and that’s exactly what I did. My mother and I decided on a short trip to Denmark and combined Aarhus with Copenhagen. Aarhus is located on the Jutland Peninsula and is just over 3 hours by train/Flixbus from
I was super impressed with Aarhus. It’s been a while since I’ve been in Denmark, so it could also be that… but I loved the quality of the activities you can do in this clean, atmospheric city. I wished I booked a one-way ticket and could stay longer in this relaxed city 😉
