I first heard about Silkeborg, Denmark from “Parks and Recreation.” Leslie Knope went to London and met the mayor of Silkeborg, played by Heidi Klum. During my month in Aarhus, I knew I had to visit Silkeborg since I’m a big Parks and Rec fan, and sadly, I didn’t run into Heidi Klum. But it […]

Aarhus, Denmark has one of the most interesting “old towns” that I’ve been to because it actually isn’t part of the city. Den Gamle By is considered to be a museum, and it’s a little outside the main part of the city. You do have to pay to enter (but I will talk about a […]

I know I mentioned in last week’s post about changing my blog name that the focus of my blog will be on travel instead of Philadelphia, but I can’t resist posting these photos of snowy winter in Philadelphia! 🙂 If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably seen my Insagram stories filled with photos of […]

To kick off the new year and celebrate my second blogiversary, I’ve changed my blog’s name from Philly with a Fjallraven to Through Julia’s Lens! 🙂 I’ve been thinking about changing the name for a while now and brainstormed for the past few months to come up with the perfect name. So why the change? […]

Last year I did a Holiday Gift Guide for the Photographer with some of my favorite products (including a camera lens coffee thermos!), so I thought I would do a holiday gift guide for the traveler this year! 🙂 I have done a post on 10 Essential Travel Accessories with some handy travel products like packing […]

Want to know the best time to see Philadelphia’s famous Boathouse Row? At sunrise in the fall a few days before Daylight Savings Time. It’s a very specific time and date and very early in the morning, but it’s worth it! And I am going to show you why 🙂 The best place to see […]

You can view all posts from my trip to Italy here.  I’ve said before that one of my favorite things I did in Italy was take tours of different cities, like our rowing tour in Venice and our driving tour of Tuscany, and the boat tour of Capri was probably my favorite! We got to […]
