First and foremost, apologies for the lack of updates recently (ew, I sound like those typical bloggers who pretend they have 1000 readers).

Anyways, throwback to a few Saturdays ago when it was adventure time! As cliché as it sounds, the birds were chirping, the sun was shining (yes, sun in 2 degrees is possible), and all in all it was a beautiful day to discover another one of Aarhus’s gems. It was time to visit the much raved about Old Town – Den Gamle By.

Picturesque brick houses, cobblestone streets, horse carriages: it was like walking into a movie scene. You feel as though you have travelled into the past and are back in simpler times. I have always loved these kind of places; it’s hard to explain why but their irresistible vintage charm leaves you feeling very happy. Not to forget, it’s an Instagrammer’s paradise! Those colourful houses make perfect #OOTD backgrounds (although when you only have 1 winter jacket, there isn’t much variety in OOTD…) #firstworldproblems.

We spent almost 2 hours exploring the Old Town. It’s basically an open-air museum and each house had a story to tell. We wandered into some of them to read up on their history. Came across a pharmacy, a bar, an old barber shop and even a hat shop – an entire shop dedicated to making and selling hats!? (owner must have been a Mad Hatter). 2 hours and a couple of kilometres later, we were ready for a hot chocolate break and decided to call it a day.

Keeping this post short, partly because I’m lazy and partly because the the pictures do most of the talking. After all, a picture is worth a thousand words (ugh *cringe*, I’m being so cliché today).

P.S. I will marry you if you buy me that vintage Volkswagen. In pink.
