The first time I stepped into Tivoli Gardens five years ago, I’m pretty sure my jaw dropped. I’m so used to American amusement parks looking the exact same with flashy, modern roller coasters, but Tivoli is NOT your typical amusement park. And if you’re going to Copenhagen, you have to see it for yourself! 🙂 […]

Christiansborg Palace (or Christiansborg Slot) is one of favorite buildings in Copenhagen! It’s definitely worth visiting if you get the chance. You can see the Royal Reception Rooms filled with glittering chandeliers and my all time favorite library (it has gold balconies, just to give you an idea), plus, you can get the best views […]

Copenhagen is my favorite city in the world, and it holds a special place in my heart because it’s where I studied abroad for a semester (complete with sailing a Viking ship) and it’s where I met my boyfriend of five and a half years! 🙂 We went back recently to celebrate his graduation from […]

Glædelig Jul! 🙂 You may know by now that I’m pretty obsessed with Scandinavia after studying abroad in Denmark twice. I gave my dog a Scandinavian name, and this blog was first named after my Swedish backpack, just to give you some idea. So I was pretty excited when I heard the American Swedish Historical Museum in […]
