Had you asked me two years ago what I felt about living in Denmark, my answer wouldn’t have been that positive. I was sick and tired of Denmark and I wanted to see the world. For more than a year I’ve done exactly that. Travelled all of Europe, taken a small look in South America and gone to the cold Canada in the middle of the winter.
I’ve seen more of the world in the last year than in the rest of my life combined and it’s been a great experience.
As I’m writing this I’m sitting in my parent’ house enjoying a few weeks of vacation before I’ll continue my journey.
I’ve experienced really hot and nice weather in Spain and really cold, snowy conditions in Canada and I loved every part of it.
But coming home, this time, I realised just how much I love the danish weather periods. We just had a couple of really good September days that has now transitioned into the more familiar grayish and cooler weather that I remembered but here’s the thing. I really enjoy it!
I actually find the gray and cold days to be cozy and it sort of reminds me of the approaching Christmas time. My favorite time of the year! Well, this year I’m going to be in the Carribean but Christmas is none the less the best time of year.
I still remember those great December days where it was freezing cold outside but still we’d go outside to find a Christmas tree. We would drink hot chocolate, gløg and ginger shots while eating “æbleskiver” ad libitum.
Since I’m not going to experience this anytime soon, I’m enjoying every cold and gray day like it was Christmas.
