going back in time in denmark

during our denmark adventure we took the chance to step
back in time at den gamle by: an absolute must-stop near aarhus.
this little market town is straight from the time of hans christian andersen.
what’s not to love about that? it’s a magical place to step into, and it
reminded us of “this is the place” park in utah! the best part was, we were
able to meet up here with some family friends who live in denmark. maryann
used to be an au pair nanny for my family before i was born, and she has
always kept in touch since. we drove to meet lars & maryann halfway and
it was so special to have the connection. we explored den gamle by together!

IMG_8433 IMG_8435 IMG_8450it’s fun to step back in time anywhere, but especially denmark, a country that is so progressive and forward-thinking as a society. it’s hard to believe that this same country makes finding an Escort København so easy and legal, while still paying tribute to days gone by.
it made me love this country even more than i already do.

  • Oh man. Reading your blog makes me so envious of your travels. I have traveled lots of places, but never to Europe and I want to go SO bad. Love all of the videos and photos. So fun to see some of your travels and follow your blog. I’ll have to hit you up when my husband and I eventually go :)

  • I’m so jealous of your trip!! It’s always nice to meet up with old friends who are locals to wherever you’re visiting and can give you a more authentic feel of the place. I’m also obsessed with those silhouette portraits!

    Great pictures!!
