5 days of fun

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.

Holy moly! Let’s give this blogging thing a try!

Blogging is an idea I’ve been flirting with for quite a while, I just managed to put it off for so long because I felt as if my life wouldn’t be interesting enough to write about. But after having talked with Pete, my fiance, about it I decided to do it anyway and give it a try. I moved to another country after all, so there has got to be something interesting to write about!

Let me start off by introducing myself!

My name is Naiyee, but please, call me Nen. I am currently 23 years old and I’m residing in Denmark. I hail from the Netherlands, but ended up in Denmark because the love of my life happened to be a Dane ( yay for the internet am I right?). I moved right after I graduated from vet tech school, and I’ve been here ever since! I have two dogs, Hayley, a 10 year old Ibizan Hound, and Falera, an 8 year old Spanish Greyhound. At the moment I’m preparing to get into vet school, but in order to get in I have to get a better average in math, physics, chemistry and biology, so I decided to take it slow and do a HF, which is the Danish equivalent to a GED. It’s quite challenging really, but I’m loving the fact that I get to use my brain. I love learning!

Other than all that I love everything food, fitness, animals and yoga related. I’ve been on a fitness journey since 2014 and I’ve gone from a 100+ kilos to somewhere between 70-80 kilos currently. I’ll probably write a fair bit about that on here as well.

I think that that’s all for now. I’ll write again very soon. 😉
