So last Friday my sister came over from the Netherlands to spend a couple of days with us. I hadn’t seen her since October, and considering my sister and I are very close, it felt like it had been forever since we’d last seen each other. I had already planned out what I wanted to do and what I wanted to show her in the short period of time she would be here. Since it had been 2 years since she had last been in Denmark, and I’ve gotten more and more familiar with the country I decided to take her to Copenhagen, which we ended up doing 2 times, and to Helsingborg, Sweden. I just came home from dropping her off at the airport, with tears in my eyes as I’m writing this, because I miss her so very much already.
Some pictures from Helsingborg. We actually kind of spontaneously decided it could be fun to go on a little adventure, since my sister had never been in Sweden before, and I had only seen Helsingborg once. We drove to Helsingør (which is my absolute favorite city by the way 😉 ) and took the ferry from there, which my sister already found amusing, since she doesn’t take ferries very often! Then we just decided to wander around the city a little bit. Unfortunately it was a short lived adventure, because the weather suddenly went very bad, and my sister hasn’t quite gotten the hang of how to dress for the Scandinavian weather yet. Cold and wet we took the ferry back to Helsingør and went on our way home again, where I made a big stack of pancakes to warm us back up again.
The day after we decided to stay inside, seeing as I dragged my sister to Copenhagen the day after she arrived, and to Sweden the day after that! We had a nice bit of quiet time, and the day after I decided to take her to Copenhagen again to see Tivoli Gardens. She has been talking about it since before she even arrived here, so I found it to be only fitting to take her there.
Unfortunately half the park was unavailable due to renovations, but we had fun anyway. We strolled around a bit and took some pictures. She was eager to get me on the rollercoaster, but seeing as I’m absolutely terrified of heights of ANY kind, I politely declined. She was persistent though, but in the end I won. 😉
These 5 days flew by, time really does go by fast when you’re having fun. It was hard saying goodbye again, because obviously I’d rather be able to just go out and visit her whenever. I don’t know when I’ll see her again, but I hope it will be soon. Until then I’m just happy we got to create some more awesome memories.
