Thanks to Ford Danmark I had the opportunity to see a bit more of Denmark. I have been living here now for about a year and besides Sjælland I haven’t seen much of the country yet. So it was time for us to go on a roadtrip and experience a bit more of Jutland and Fyn (there are about 400 islands in Denmark, Sjælland, Jutland and Fyn are the most populated)!
We started our trip in Copenhagen and went for a 1.5 hour drive to Sjællands Odde, from here we took a ferie to Aarhus. When you live in the city you tend to forget how beautiful nature can be and when coming from the Netherlands it’s funny to see how many small hills there are in the Danish landscape.
When we arrived, we dumped our stuff in the hotel and went for a quick dinner, drank some wine to continue to the popstage VoxHall.
Here we saw VETO. I didn’t knew the band beforehand, but I think it’s always cosy to just listen to some new music. Here is also where I thought that Jutlanders are a lot nicer than people from Copenhagen. But perhaps this is just a capital city thing, where people don’t really have the time to show courtesy and be polite.
How funny is this? On our walk back to the hotel we bumbed into a little gallery where these pieces where hanging.
So this was our first night in Aarhus, I will post some more later about our second day in Jutland and a short visit to Fyn!
If you want to try out another kind of brunch on your lazy Sunday, BioM is the place to be. Hidden in the latin quarter you will find this all organic restaurant. It doesn’t really has the typical New Nordic feeling and it all basically comes down to the food. While most of the time I really appreciate this minimalistic Danish design, sometimes it feels like restaurants, shops, etc are doing it for the sake of doing it. So it’s refreshing to see that BioM doesn’t cares about the next design trend that will fade the last one..
For 169 kr (22 euro) you can get the brunch menu on Saturdays and Sundays. Where most places serve this typical English breakfast or high-tea kind of brunch, BioM goes into an entirely different direction. Homemade bread, yoghurtmouse, fruitsoup, a pouched egg on a pile of humus are only the beginning. The food tastes like it looks like: pure, healthy and surprising all at the same time.
I’m not sure if we picked out a lucky day, but there were hardly any kids. Ask me again in 10 years, but at this point I think it’s horrible when I go out for brunch and I can’t even hear myself think because of the crying babies…
PS: I just visited & Other Stories and this store is to die for. The prices are between H&M and COS, which for Danish standards are surprisingly low. I love how they mix and match their own brand with other brands such as Nike. But also their entire brand identity: a lot of “mood boards” next to the clothing, high quality fabrics (and they are proudly presenting that on little signs too), and a lot of beauty products. YAY to the Swedes!
My favorite time of the year is peeking around the corner! And I don’t mean Spring, because we all know that one is not around at all.. I’m talking about sample sale season 😀 I’m heading over to the Patta sale in Amsterdam upcoming weekend, but there’s definitely a lot going on in Copenhagen too.
Zara is my all time favorite high street brand. It is more affordable than Topshop, but often has a better quality than H&M. Last weekend, while enjoying lovely Holland, I bought this necklace at Zara. Since I just quitted my jobs, I can’t really splurge on everything I want (how do those fashion bloggers afford their lifestyle, is a question I ask myself on a daily basis). But a statement necklace, spices up every dull outfit!
