Ribe, Denmark: Visiting the Oldest Town in Denmark and Exploring the Beautiful Walking Streets!

BlogDenmarkPhotographyTravel / Feb 4, 2019 / 19 Comments

Jelling might be the most historically significant place in Denmark, but Ribe is the oldest town in Denmark! It dates back to the Viking Age (so of course I loved it) so there are archaeological digs and historic spots, but it’s also a pretty town with beautiful churches and walking streets! 🙂 History of Ribe, […]

Møllestien- The Prettiest Cobblestone Street in Aarhus

BlogDenmarkPhotographyTravel / Dec 17, 2018 / 2 Comments

I’ve found the prettiest cobblestone street in Aarhus and maybe even in Denmark! 🙂 When I was exploring downtown Aarhus, I happened to stumble upon Møllestien, a cobblestone street with colorful houses dating from the 18th century. I didn’t see a single person there, so it isn’t a big tourist area, which is perfect for this […]

A Tale of Two Villages: The Faroese Forest of Kunoy and the Colorful Harbor of Klaksvík

After spending the night in Tórshavn, Matt and I drove to spend the morning in Kunoy and Klaksvík. We were going to take the ferry from Klaksvík to Kalsoy (it’s a lot of “k” names, so I’ll try to keep them straight!), and we wanted to make sure we got in line for the ferry early […]

One Day in Tórshavn: Walking Tour of the Colorful Capital of the Faroe Islands

Tórshavn was our second stop in the Faroe Islands after Kirkjubøur! Tórshavn is the capital of the Faroe Islands, and I loved all the colorful houses and harbors. Even though it’s the capital and a bigger city than most of the villages I visited, it’s still very walkable and you can see a lot in one day […]

If you read Shakespeare in high school, there’s a good chance you read “Hamlet” and learned that it took place in Denmark (“Something is rotten in the state of Denmark,” anyone?). Kronborg Castle, or Elsinore, is where “Hamlet” takes place and it actually exists, and you can visit it in Helsingør! Helsingør is just a quick trip […]

Visiting the Little Mermaid Statue & Kastellet: A Colorful Hidden Gem in Copenhagen

You’ve probably heard of the Little Mermaid statue in Copenhagen, and it’s the second most popular tourist attraction there, behind Tivoli Gardens. It actually wouldn’t be my favorite sight in the city, but nearby there is a hidden gem in Copenhagen that I love! 🙂 Visiting the Little Mermaid Some people complain that the Little […]

One Day in Cape May: Victorian Houses & Dog Friendly Beaches

I have the unpopular opinion in Philadelphia that North Carolina beaches are better than the Jersey Shore. There are TONS of beaches in North Carolina (I could name a dozen off the top of my head), and I grew up going to the empty beaches at Ocean Isle, Emerald Isle, and Sunset Beach. Plus, the […]
