UNIVERSAL STUDIOS, ORLANDO

Vores første stop i Florida var i Orlando, som er kendt for deres store udvalg af temaparker. Vi valgte bl.a. at stoppe forbi Universal Studios, selvom vi var der for godt 6 år siden. Men der er lavet super meget om derinde, og der er kommet mange nye forlystelser til, at det ikke gjorde noget som helst. De har deriblandt lavet en Harry Potter park (mega thumbs up), for jeg er en vaskeægte HP-fan, så det var en fornøjelse. Generelt var det mega fedt at gå rundt og prøve ting derinde, fordi det er så vandvittigt gennemført, og der bliver så sandelig ikke sparet på noget som helst. Tivoli forekommer pludselig så kedelig - selvom den forlystelsespark naturligvis også har sin helt egen charme. Derudover så er Universal Studios Orlando også indehaver af verdensstørste Hard Rock Cafe, og den skal man heller ikke snyde sig selv for. Det er lækker amerikansk mad i særklasse, som spises i vaskeægte rock omgivelser. Tag et smut forbi parken, for det er møgfedt.

Our very first stop in the sunshine state happened to be in Orlando that is know for their theme parks. We chose to stop by Universal Studios even though we actually already have been there before for like 6 years ago. But that didn't stop us cause the park has expanded a lot ever since and a lot of new things have made their way into the park. E.g. they've expanded with a Harry Potter Park (whoah thumbs up) because I'm HP-fangirl number 1. In general it was super nice strolling around trying the amusements cause everything is so well accomplished and not a single cent is saved. I like. Our own amusement parks in Denmark seem so boring in comparison, thus they've another charm which the American theme parks don't really have. Apart from that then Universal Studios Orlando contains the world's biggest Hard Rock Cafe and you really have to stop by here. They serve delicious American food that can be eaten in the most rock inspired circumstances you can possibly find. Stop by the theme park, it's definitely worth it.

FLORIDA UPDATE

The jumpsuit is from Saint Tropez
Jeg kom hjem fra Florida af for godt og vel lidt over 3 uger siden, og der har simpelthen været så mange ting at lave efterfølgende, at jeg ikke har prioriteret at blogge. Jeg har arbejdet fuldtid i vuggestuen, jeg har været en uge på noget, der hedder DayCamp (dvs. at jeg har undervist en masse børn i forskellige sportsgrene), jeg har været virkelig social og ydermere gjort mig klar til den videregående uddannelse, som jeg er kommet ind på. Det fortæller jeg om på et andet tidspunkt! However, så vil jeg ikke snyde jer for en masse lækre billeder fra Florida af, så jeg har tænkt mig at lave et indlæg for hvert område, vi har været i - 5 i alt. Derudover vil der naturligvis også komme nogle outfits. De her billeder er taget ved Crystal River, hvor der var en naturpark - det er lidt sump agtigt, men virkelig smukt. 

I arrived back in Denmark from Florida 3,5 weeks ago and ever since I've been super busy working fulltime in the nursery, been a week away on something called DayCamp (where I've trained a bunch of kids in several sports), been really social and furthermore prepared myself on my university education, that I'm going to start with at the end of August. It's going to be super exciting. However, I intend to show you some pictures from Florida and I'd like divide them into all the five places we've visited. Also, I'll show you some outfit posts. These pictures were by the way taken in Crystal River in a natural park, which was a bit of a slough, yet really beautiful.

QUITO, ECUADOR

Så kom vi til det aller sidste kapitel i mit og min venindes Nord -og Sydamerikanske eventyr. Vi tilbragte vores sidste par dage i Quito for os selv - og nogle venner fra en tidligere gruppe før, at vi skulle vende snuderne hjem af. Ecuador i sig selv er noget mere anderledes i fht. både Bolivia og Peru, og det var ret tydeligt, at jo nordlige vi kom i Sydamerika desto mere "civiliseret" blev det. Derudover var det også noget dyrere her. I Quito spankulerede vi rundt og var bl.a. på et museum fyldt med fotografier, som indbyggere fra Quito har taget, vi stod på ækvator (den gule linje, hvis I skulle være i tvivl) og nød byens hjørner og kroge. Det er en meget fin by, og de mange farverige huse på skråningerne, ser så flotte ud på afstand, da man får sig et panorama view på det hele. Det var med blandede følelser, at vi skulle hjem igen, og vi snakkede begge to om, at vi nok godt kunne have rejst noget længere. Om ikke andet har jeg som person også fået helt vildt meget blod på tanden i henhold til at komme ud og rejse noget mere på sådan en måde. Orv, derudover har jeg faktisk lavet en video over hele vores rejse, som I kan se på youtube: HER. Jeg håber, at I nød at tage et dyk ned i vores eventyr. 

Sadly, the last chapter of me and my girlfriends' adventure had to come to an end. We spent our last days in Quito on our own, but with some friends from a previous trip as well. Ecuador is a bit more different in comparison to Bolivia and Peru and it's quite obvious that the more north you go in Southamerica the more "civilized" it gets. So to say. Also, it's way more expensive here - I wonder if it's because they use the American dollar as their national currency. Well, perhaps. Nevertheless we chilled and visited a museum that exhibited photographies that Ecudorian citizens had captured, we stood on the equator line and discovered some exciting things here and there. It's a very nice city and I really enjoyed all of the colorful houses, which were placed on many slopes. It was with mixed feelings that we had to look each other in the eyes and realize that we were about to head home. We talked about that we actually could have traveled a little longer. Nevertheless, I've gotten a huge lust to go traveling like this again and in general to discover more of the world. Oh and by the way, I've created a little video about our trip, which you can find on youtube HERE. I hope that you enjoyed our little adventure.

A MINION... APPARENTLY

Jumpsuit: Bought in Lima. Shirt: Gina Tricot. Sandals: Pieces. Bum bag: Bought in Peru
Da min søster tog disse billeder af mig, så sagde hun "Ej du ligner en minion", og så kiggede jeg ned på mig selv... Hun havde da fat i et eller andet der, haha. Det havde jeg på ingen måde tænkt over, før at hun nævnte det, men skidt pyt. Jeg havde dette på, på en dag med mine veninder som helt bestemt lå i hyggens tegn. 

As my sister took these pictures of me, she said: "Gosh, you look like a minion" and then I looked down at myself... Well, I kinda did haha. I didn't think about that at all when I dressed but what the heck. I was wearing this on a day well spent with some of my girlfriends.

LORD OF THE RINGS

The ring is from Maanesten
Okay jeg er nok ikke lige Ringenes Herre, men jeg har dog investeret i en ny ring. Min mor absolut elsker butikken, Companys som hun stort set køber alt sit tøj fra, og da de en dag havde 40% discount på alt i butikken, tog hun mig under armen derhen. Der fandt jeg denne fine og minimalistiske ring, som normalt koster 300 kr., men som jeg fik for 180 kr. i stedet. Det var da et rimelig godt scoop. 

Okay I ain't no lord of the rings but I got myself a new ring though... My mom has this favourite shop she nearly buys all of her clothes from and one day they had a 40% discount on everything. I went there with her and then I found this beautiful, minimalistic ring. It usually costs 300 DKK but I got it for 180 DKK and it's sterling silver, so I think it was quite a scoop.

LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL

Tilbage i maj måned da jeg besøgte min veninde i Esbjerg, tog vi nogle andre billeder, udover dem som vi tog på stranden, som I kan finde HER. Dagen før at jeg tog dette billede, gik vi os en tur med hendes hund, og der gik vi forbi denne tunnel, og der fik jeg lige pludselig en idé til et billede. Jeg ville gerne have et billede, hvor hun stod for enden af tunnellen - i solen, altså on the bright side i fht. selve tunnellen, som naturligvis lå i skygge. Jeg kan faktisk ret godt lide billedet, da jeg synes, at hendes pose på en eller anden måde fremkommer ret "stærk". Ret nice, for så passer titlen til billedet bare endnu bedre.

Back when I visited a lovely girlfriend of mine we took some other pictures besides from the ones on the beach, which you can find HERE. The day before I took this picture we took her dog for a walk and like that we walked by this spot and all of a sudden an idea popped into my mind. I wanted to take a picture of her at the end of the tunnel where the sun was able to shine. Like that she'd appear all lighten up compared to the tunnel that was shady. I quite like the picture and especially her pose that looks "strong" somehow and that's nice because then the title matches the picture even better.

HALF A CENTURY

Dress: Pieces. Stilettos: Bianco. Ear rings: Made by me
Min højt elskede far fyldte et halvt århundrede d. 21. juni og i den anledning, så fejrede vi ham med en fest med alle vores venner og familie. Det var sådan en god aften med masser af lækker mad, dejligt selskab, musik, taler, andet underholdning og jeg kunne blive ved... Min far var rigtig tilfreds med aftenen, når han kigger tilbage på den, og det var tydeligt at se, at han havde en helt særlig glow over sig på denne dag. Det var intet mindre en herligt at se på. 

My beloved father turned 50 years old the 21th of June and for that occasion we throw a party with all our friends and family. It was such a good evening with plenty of delicious food, nice company, music, speeches, other entertainments and I could continue for awhile... My dad was super happy when looking back at the day and you could sense a certain glow on him the entire evening. It was lovely to watch.
