Random Danish Memories…

During my three trips to Denmark, it was important for me to get the feel of what it is like to be a Dane. Using Airbnb and Couch Surfing was a great way to do just that. Living in homes, instead of soulless hotel rooms really gave me the chance to enjoy life the Danish way!

I was never disappointed. Although I had to forget taking a good warm bath, (bathtubs are a true rarety in Vikingland) every place I stayed in was clean, clear and definately hygge!

This picture was shot in our Copenhagen apartment, back in February 2017.

      1. Couch surfing was the most interesting experience… The exchange is so rewarding. Discovering ways of living, cooking with your host, echanging about your home countries… Plus you get the greatest tips for fun things to do in the area πŸ™‚

  2. Great way to get to know people and get the feel for the way people live. We do have bath tubes …occasionally. Oh and in Finland everyone has small saunas at home as well. Perhaps try that next time.

    1. hehehe I am sure there are a couple of bath tubs somewhere in DK… But they are definately more common in Sweden, from my experience πŸ˜‰

      I gotta try these saunas next time… I didn’t spend nearly enough time in Finland! Awww…. I feel like I need to start planning a new trip πŸ˜‰

  3. You found a great way to discover other countries, Cyranny πŸ˜€
    The bathtubs disappeared in many houses, when there was an economic crisis for oil in the 1980’s. The water became expensive and mostly changed to only use a shower instead.

    1. Hello there, Irene πŸ™‚ It is so good to read you!!

      I do love to travel that way, though I completely understand how it is not necessarely fit for just anybody πŸ™‚

      Thank you for the information about the bath tubs, I had figured it probably had to do with something like it, but never got the confirmation… It makes a lot of sense! And it is a small price to pay to spend time in dear Denmark πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  4. It’s so cool that you had the possibility to see how it feels to be a Dane during your trips. So many people just stay in their hotels or nearby when visiting other countries and just enjoy the life of a tourist and I was often wondering whether they aren’t curious about how people living there live their lives and how it is to be one of them. When I was in Sweden, it was just one week, but one of things that interested me foremost, was how it would be like to be one of them and live in Stockholm everyday. I love experiencing such things, even though I haven’t had many chances until now. The prospect of living in a complete stranger’s house would make me probably a bit anxious and uncomfortable, but usually when you get to know a person, you have at least some idea as for whether they’re nice and trustworthy or not, so I think it wouldn’t be as scary as it may seem.

    1. Traveling, for me, is about trying new things and living like the locals as much as possible πŸ™‚

      I’m glad that you had a chance too spend some time in Sweden, and enjoyed yourself there πŸ™‚ Stockholm is a beautiful city! What did you like the best about it?

  5. Whilst Montreal remains off the radar it would seem that Copenhagen is likely to happen around late September (when, as I understand, the weather may be turning for the worse) whilst a friend tries to sell some wine and I nod knowingly waiting for the moments to tick away. Do you, perhaps, have any suggestions of a culinary nature via which I might impress friends after work?
