travelogue: copenhagen, we go

After iceland, our very veins needed to slow down.

We needed one bed to sleep in every night for many consecutive days; we needed simple decisions like what to eat and how much of it should include cheese; we even needed, yes, less magnificent landscapes so our eyes and hearts could ease off of exploding every few seconds in disbelief.

We needed Copenhagen.

For my friend that is about to go on a solo mission to CPH, I've written out some details for her trip
(but also for you and you-- you should go! and also for me, for next time). If you don't like details, skip!

a little film (Copenhagen)

To save my creative energy from disintegrating, I work on this little video series about europe in my few spare minutes between Masters duties. The last one was completed two months ago, so I guess that is my going rate. Not bad! Considering.

Here is a silly peek into what our five days in this truly special city was like. Copenhagen restored us. Brought us back from the brink.

 The first couple days were seriously spent in bed, or doing laundry, or watching netflix (ohhh hallelujah, that moment when you reacquaint yourself with technology from the perch of a comfy couch, knowing you won't have to set up camp and sleep on hard ground that evening), so this video is remarkably shorter than the first. It's not very cinematic either.

 Nevertheless, when we're older and greyer and less airplane-bound, it's for us to watch and remember that we once spied on some deer and biked on coastal highways and felt like we had made it to the European version of home.
