"Hej" From Denmark
My last blog post was from Copenhagen at the beginning of June. Since then we have traveled to Italy, flew back home, visited 13 states and now are back in Copenhagen to finish out the remainder of the season!
Crazy enough there are only two games left... IT'S PLAYOFF TIME!
At some point I will blog about our vacation to the Amalfi Coast of Italy. Oh what a dream.
In July, Randy had one month back home in the States and we packed it as full as we could. Friends visited from FL and we celebrated The 4th of July. We road tripped through 10 states, from North Carolina to Texas and back, in 4 days! We took a family vacation to Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon to celebrate my 25th birthday. We also enjoyed a family vacation with the other side of the family and 20 family members to Winter Park, Colorado to celebrate Randy's Grammy's 70th birthday! And just like that Randy was back on a plane across the pond to resume the remainder of the Tower's football season.
I arrived in Denmark on Monday, August 29th.
The Towers finished out the regular season with 4 wins and 2 losses, second place in the Danish National League division. The first place team got to choose who they will face in the semi-finals of the playoffs, the Gold Diggers selected to the play the Razorbacks so the Towers will face the 89ers. The semi-final playoff game is set for this coming Saturday, September 25th, 1pm est! (text/message me if you want the link to watch)
This past few weekends we took advantage of the bye weeks and road-tripped through Denmark. The sweetest families offered us their car to borrow for the weekends.
Last Friday evening we drove to Møns Klint, a 6 km stretch of chalk cliffs along the eastern coast of the Danish island of Møn in the Baltic Sea. The scenery was beautiful. We hiked up and down the 992 stairs to make it to the black rock beach. This portion of the Baltic Sea overlooks the maritime board of Denmark, Sweden, and Germany.
Then on Saturday we drove from Zealand to Jutland (the island that Copenhagen is on to the mainland of Denmark). We explored Velje and went to the Razorbacks/89ers football game. We knew Towers would play either team on the 25th so we had to scout out the competition!
On Saturday this past weekend we went to visit the Frederiksborg Castle, 40 minutes outside of Copenhagen. We walked into a real life fairytale! This castle was built in the 17th century and had the most beautiful gardens!
While living over here, I find it important to celebrate the little successes. Here are my little successes for the past few weeks:
Food over here is sometimes challenging for me. I admit I can be picky and I am not a huge explorer when it comes to food. I packed protein powder in my suitcase and l have throughly enjoyed my daily smoothies consisting of Garden of Life protein powder & greens, ice, almond milk, crunchy peanut butter, a banana and some frozen strawberries.
- Ouai Detox Shampoo.
The water over here is really hard. Resulting in disgusting residue in hair, my hair felt sticky and dirty all the time and I wasn't able to do anything with it. I had to find a solution! After a lot of research I found a detox shampoo at Magasin! The shampoo worked and I feel like a new person!! I highly recommend this shampoo to anyone traveling or living in a new place with an unfamiliar setting.
- I successfully did my own get nails!
To get a gel manicure in Denmark cost $100+. I just couldn't allow myself to pay that, so I brought all the supplies with me. The drill, hard gel, gel polish and UV light. I surprised myself with how well they turned out!
Our weeks are quiet and filled with lots of football film, practices and workouts. We have really enjoyed getting to explore Denmark during the bye weeks.
Now it is officially game week. We have 3 weeks left in Denmark and there is work still to be done!!!
Thanks for following along ♥
