Good times!

I’m back with another post! I can’t believe it’s October already. I’m starting to settle into more of a regular rhythm here, although I try to discover something new each day. I’ve taken a lot of walks down the long streets, trying to figure out how everything connects.

This past Friday I went with some friends to a “karma night” at a disco club, it was a lot of fun. A different type of place than we were expecting but still an enjoyable experience. There were a lot of yoga-type people there, and positive quotes were posted on the walls (in Danish). Plus it was a nice release to just let go and dance. 🙂

This weekend I didn’t do much, just went on several walks and cleaned the kitchen and my room. I thought it went pretty well. I’m considering buying a plant or something to bring some more life into this room. 🙂

This afternoon I decided to check out the Swim Centre at DGI-Byen, and it was really nice. Very stylish. The Danes are very open when it comes to nakedness in the locker rooms…you are not allowed to have clothes on when you take a shower. Everyone in the women’s locker room was naked — kids, grown women and small boys (who are too young to go alone into the men’s locker rooms). There are 5 pools. I swam in Pool 4, which is elliptical. You swim in circles around this smaller children’s play pool in the center. Very interesting. I’d never seen anything like it. It’s 100 meters (~ 328 ft) in circumference, and 1.8 meters (~5.9 ft) deep. I didn’t visit the other 4 pools today, but when I go back I will take a look at them!

My absentee ballot came in the mail the other day. So I will be casting my vote for president and sending it back ASAP!


  1. Yea I bet the openness is like that everywhere in Europe!

    Sorry I haven’t had much time reading this blog. I’m trying to catch up now.

    So how is the weather there? Colder? And does anyone over there talk about the election in America?

    Yea for absentee ballots 🙂

  2. Hey, Julia! I was told that it’s mostly just in Scandinavia where they are more open about nakedness and stuff like that…but I’m sure Europe as a whole is more relaxed about these things than the US. 🙂

    There’s no need to apologize as I haven’t been as diligent in posting here as I’d like, it takes so much energy to write one post, LOL! Thanks for reading and commenting though, I appreciate that. 🙂

    The weather here is interesting. It can be cold and also warm, but there are no extremes. It never gets extremely cold and it never gets extremely warm. And it doesn’t snow, which surprised me when I found out.

    Yes people do talk about the elections here; especially those in my kitchen. They are interested and so far most people I’ve talked to are in favor of Obama. Not surprisingly, lol!

  3. Its amazing how fast the time goes, were almost half way through Oct already. Keep up with the updates its really interesting to read!

  4. Ah I didn’t know you wrote a reply!

    I bet you’ve been busy lately. Wow still can’t believe you’re over there haha.

    The weather sounds kind of like Texas lol except Texas was a lot more extreme. No snow? Aww. Oh well. I’ll have enough snow in Wisconsin haha.

    I miss you!
