I really think I need to visit Copenhagen again at some point. I disliked my hostel so much and was confused at the layout of the city that I think that really put a cloud over my ability to enjoy the city. The castles were beautiful, the history was interesting, and the food was OK, but I couldn’t navigate my way around the winding, nonsensical … Continue reading Sparkly Things in Denmark (Copenhagen, Denmark)
Me, pondering life on the train from Budapest to Vienna in March 2018. I’ve had about 75 different travel plans for 2019. Sometimes you just open Google Maps on your phone when you’re on the train and think, “How can I see as many places as possible in one trip?” Maybe that’s just me. But that’s what happened today. You may recall that I hit … Continue reading When Wanderlust Sets In
One of my friends and colleagues went to a few different cities in Scandinavia this week and I SO enjoyed following along via his Instagram. I’d given him a bunch of recommendations for Oslo and Stockholm before left and one of my recommendations was go eat at a restaurant in Aker Brygge. Aker Brygge (pronounced Ah-ker Breh-ger) is a strip of newly developed shopping, apartments, … Continue reading PSA: There’s a Burger Joint in Oslo!

This week’s #FBF takes us back to 2015 when I went on my two week Scandinavian backpacking adventure. The last city on my solo adventures was Helsinki, the capital city of Finland. It’s a really small city with not a lot to do, to be quite honest, unless you’re into art museums because they have a few of those. But, that said, it was actually … Continue reading Coolest Sight in Helsinki: Suomenlinna
I ate some fantastic food – albeit mostly pastries – when I traveled to Oslo in 2015. I wasn’t as into photographing my food obsessively back then but I do have a few photos. On my first night in Oslo after I dropped my stuff at the Anker Hostel, I walked down the main road towards the city’s center and one of the first restaurants … Continue reading #FBF: What I Ate: Oslo
If you’re ever planning a two week trip across Scandinavia like I did and you are not a meateater, I beg of you to please consider eating meat while you’re you’re traveling. I don’t eat meat anymore, but I did while I was traveling there in 2015 and I have no idea how I would have survived had I not eaten insane amounts of meat. … Continue reading What I Ate In: Copenhagen
