Zumba

leave a comment »

I have not been in any of Zumba class since I moved to Europe. So, I was so excited to join today’s 1h free open air zumba class.


I found the event on facebook. It was on Dansepladsen at Fælledparken with Irina chernova. And it’s free! 🙂 I was so close to cancelling it because heavy rain clouds werw up since morning. But fælledparken was just 10min biking from my place. So I went there anyway. People actually showed up. Eventhough the wooden dance floor was all wet. But we had fun. And it felt nice to be back dancing again . 

Shopping in Milan, Italy

If money could buy happiness, I bet Milan is the best place to go. 😉 ❤

Before I flew to Milan, I followed the unwritten rules to contact all my italian friends to “hand-wave” them that I am going there. Interestingly, both said they had never spent time in Milan to be able to give any recommendation for me. In fact, one of them actually said that I wont like the city, that it’s different than any other city in Italy, so.. and so… Made me even more curious.

Ostello Bello Grande, Milan

One word. Fantastic.

 

My trip to Milan is special because I have not been travelling alone for so long. In fact, I could not even remember the last time I travelled alone. So, to lessen my worry, I asked for a hostel recommendation from my friend. And she said that choosing Ostello Bello Grande would never go wrong. And I prove it. Located in Via Roberto Lepetit, 33, 20124 Milano, Italy, this hostel is just 5min walk airport shuttle terminal. It’s also 7min walk from Milan Central Station.


I arrived last night around 1AM. 24h reception welcomed me with a smile and welcome drink. I checked in to a 5-bed-mixed dormitary room which was occupied with me and one guy. Milan was so warm that night but luckily the room has an AC. I slept soundly immediately. Woke up and took a shower, I realised a girl came last night (morning?). I didnot hear her. Thanks for being quiet, good hostel manner.

Stevns Klint

leave a comment »

Few weeks back, I organized a cykletur (or a biking tour in English) to a cliff area named Stevns Klint. We met at Copenhagen central st. with our bike and took the train to Køge. It was quite a long ride, ca. an hour. When we arrived at Køge, we started following google maps to the cliff area. Google estimated the trip will take 1,5h but it took us 2h to get there. 😉

Christmassy Christmas Season…

leave a comment »


It’s the time of the year again to put the warm coat, strangle yourself with thick scarf, cover your head with a hoodie or hat, hide your fingers inside your gloves and protect your toes with warm waterproof boots. Last but not least… enjoy the Christmas market! 🎄🎄🎄


And that was what I did last Sunday with the usual packs 😉 We went to the Christmas market in Amagertorv. I was sooo tempted to drink gløgg, but since I am taking antibiotics, so I just tried a spoonful. And instead, I bought churros. Yummy in my tummy. Hehehe….


After taking super early dinner, we continued to Tivoli Garden’s Christmas market. This place is so magical. I love it so much. All the Christmas trees and lights and decorations were amazing… ✨✨✨


We took some rides as well. Thanks to Gwen’s and Tima’s wildcard 😉 I tried one hell of a ride, I forget the name in danish, but it’s The Monsoon. I screamed so much that I was sure I was going to tear my throat. The rest went home earlier. But some crazy peeps (including me) stayed until a little late. 


Ooohhh…. I love this season. The season of love. Even though I am nowhere near being loved.
