Clear your head

by

It’s been really nice to get out of town for a few days and clear my head. Starting a new job has been overwhelming in a lot of ways. I find myself constantly thinking about it, even in the middle of the night when I wake up to turn around. So just hopping on a bike and riding around in a new city kind of forced me to be more present and leave work behind.

It’s also hard to leave work behind, when it’s so much fun! I feel lucky to work with the people I do. And it’s not so weird that I experience this considering that I just moved my entire life to a completely new place – for my job. But distance is good in order to get some perspective and reload energy. So I highly recommend you to take a weekend to a new place and hop on a bike if you want to clear your head!

My manager is very pro reflection. And like she says: sometimes, if you dig deep enough, you’ll find gold. Bicycling around in Copenhagen I did a lot of reflecting on life, as I usually do. But this time around, I actually struck gold. I realized that right now, everything that I have in life works very well. That in itself is such an amazing feeling!

During my time as a student there where  many things that might be cause for worry: like the financial situation, ability to keep student housing, need to get a good job etc. But there is nothing troubling me today.

So there you go. Bicycle + new town + reflection might equal gold!

Ocean side

by

It’s always windy in Helsingborg! It’s fun when I’m out running, but it can get quite exhausting in everyday life. It’s like the wind sets off your balance and all the noise from the wind makes you a bit tired in your head. No matter if I’ve been out running or am just coming home from work, this is always what I look like!

IKEA IT HQ is based in Helsingborgs harbor, just next to the stormy ocean. So I can say bye bye to pretty hair. But I think that it’s kind of worth it, considering that this is my view! On the other side: Denmark.

It’s so close that when I’m standing on the shore on the other side, I can actually see my office! Fun right? You go abroad and still see your office!

Glyptoteket

by

I love these indoor gardens! Got some culture today at Glyptotek. Mostly nude statues, but some mummies can be seen as well. It was a really nice place, and a nice contrast to the content in the Swedish museums that I visited this summer!

The climb

by

I highly recommend that you visit Vor Frelsers Kirke. It’s a long, long climb to the top through the bell tower. But an amazing view awaits! Don’t expect good selfies though, way too windy for that! On one side you can see the core and red houses, which reminds me so much of Stockholm. On the other side you’ll find greenery and lovely walking areas!

Grød

by

I found this amazing restaurant at Jaegerborgsgade that only serves different types of porridge and oatmeal. It’s called Grød! Perfect for me because I’m biking through the city and I need my strength!
