Iceland

I went on a small trip to Iceland, which turned out to be absolutely fantastic.

To travel is to live

“To move, to breathe, to fly, to float,

To gain all while you give,

To roam the roads of lands remote,

To travel is to live.”

Almost summer in Denmark

Few days ago, it was almost winter. Then – all of a sudden – it changed to almost summer.

I took this photo yesterday, but the weather is even better today.

CopenhagenThe motive is Copenhagen, as seen from one of the towers: Christiansborg Tower.

Sometimes it snows

It snowed today!

It is near the end of April, it should be spring.

Luckily it was warm enough to immediately melt the snow.

It looks like Prince was right. … Sometimes it snows in April.

Way

None of us knows where we’re going.

Only positive people enjoy the trip.

A new year, with new possibilities and new adventures. But up untill now, my time has gone with work and not much else. I must try to open up for all the things that could result in an interesting blog post.

2015 in retrospect

I think it is time for a 2015 year in review, before I start to look forward on a new year.

In some way, 2015 was special. Still, when the year ended, I was pretty much the same place, when I started – both literally and figurative speaking.

A highlight of the year was me finally gotten a chance to visit Japan, and found it even more fantastic than I had imagined. I almost found love there too, but it ended with being just a bit complicated friendship.

At the beginning of the year, I could have gotten me another job, when a job recruiter contacted me. It turned out, the job was not what I wanted – and probably I was not the right candidate for the job anyway.

Throughout 2015, I have been looking for a new apartment. Had I found the right one (affordably and the right location), I could have moved in 2015. I did not find the right place, so I am still the same place I was, when 2015 started.
So in short: I am still the same place, in the same job and still just me. Reasons be, that I am a little picky and other people are picky too.

A large part of the things I have mentioned here, have not been on my blog when it happened.
What I did write, was about a warm winter and a mild spring. In addition, a bit about me looking – not that hard – for a new place to live.

Off course, I also wrote a bit about my trip to Japan. Just not the juicy stuff.

I also told about me, trying to be a better version of myself. I did start to live even healthier than before, and have – until now at least – done so ever since.

In November, we got a lot of snow in a single weekend. I wrote about that. I did not write about a job that was beginning to take all my focus and energy. I did not find a work-life balance for myself in 2015, but I have to do that soon.

Throughout the year, I have been working on making me a better version of myself. I intend to continue do that in 2016.
