Det er ikke hver dag at man (som voksen) kommer op i et treehouse. Jeg kan faktisk bekræfte at jeg ikke har været i et treehouse siden jeg blev “for sej til at lege” – som man åbenbart gør når man bliver teenager. Hvad der er udover det sædvanlige på Ekies resortet her i Grækenland er at hotellet er tilpasset naturen, naturen er ikke fjernet for at tilpasse sig hotellet. Og derfor, siden skoven nærmest fortsætter ud i vandet, har de selvfølgelig bygget et treehouse. Jeg er nødt til at påpege at det er fuldstændig fantastisk. Det er moderne, næsten chic men på samme tid er det bygget så ledes at det gynger lidt når man går op i det, fuldstændig som et ægte treehouse. Jeg er vild med det! Laura og jeg har både drukket lemonade mens vi har slynget os i sofa området samt spist en 10 retters menu mens vi sad og nød udsigten. Jeg har lige pludselig et underligt behov for a bo oppe i trækronerne. Helt fantastisk.

english: It’s not everyday that you (as an adult) get to climb up into a treehouse. I can actually confirm that I have never had the pleasure of doing just so since I got “too cool to play” – as you somehow think you get when you become a teenager. What is beyond special at the Ekies resort here in Greece is that the hotel is build to fit nature, nature is not removed to fit the hotel. And so, since the forrest almost touches the beach, they of course build a treehouse on their water front deck. I have to say, it is absolutely marvelous. It’s modern, even chic – but at the same time the whole structure kinda wobbles as you go up the stairs. Just like a real treehouse, I am in love. Laura and I have both enjoyed drinks, slung across the sofa area up there but also enjoyed a marvelous 10 course meal watching the sunset. I suddenly feel the urge to live above ground. It’s absolutely wonderful.

LETS PADDLE FAR AWAY

Det er en smule svært at være glad for vandsport når man bor i Danmark, eller det er det ihvertfald for mig. Problemet er at jeg ikke kan lide koldt, mørkt vand som vi har hjemme. Jeg elsker når vandet er klart og blåt som himlen og så gør det mig virkelig ikke noget hvis jeg nærmest kan se bunden. Det er kun et plus. Så i kan nok forstille jer, mig klappe i mine små hænder da jeg fandt ud af at der tilbydes paddle boarding, kajakker, windsurfing og sejling på vores resort her i Grækenland. Fordi vandet i Grækenland, ja det møder sådan cirka alle mine krav til det perfekte hav. Jeg havde aldrig prøvet at paddle boarde før men jeg var super spændt! Jeg kan nu meddele at det overhovedet ikke er skræmmende når vandet er stille og man nærmest kan nå bunden af havet med sin padle – selv når man er godt 20 – 30 meter fra kysten. Perfekt! Jeg synes vand sport på Ekies er ideelt når man er begynder fordi resortet ligger inde i en bugt hvor der er særligt lavvandet. Jeg kan allerede fortælle jer at jeg har tænkt mig at bruge mange timer, over de næste dage, på et bræt. Det er slet ikke svært, thank god!

english: I suppose it’s difficult being really fond of water sports when you live in Denmark, it is for me anyway. The problem is that I don’t like cold, dark water like we have at home. I like it clear, crisp and blue as the sky. So you can imagine my joy when I noticed that paddle boarding, kayaking, windsurfing and sailing is offered at our resort here in Greece. Because in Greece, the water is divine and meets all my demands for the perfect sea. I had never tried paddle boarding before but I was eager to try it! I am happy to announce that it is not scary at all when the water is calm and you can almost reach the bottom with your paddle – even when you are 20 – 30 meters away from shore. Perfect. I think water sports at Ekies is especially great for beginners because the resort is located in a quite and beautiful bay where the water is wonderfully shallow! I can already tell you now that I will be paddle boarding for hours during the next couple of days. I just have to do it again and again!

Inden vi ankom til Ekies gjorde jeg hvad enhver velforberedt blogger ville gøre, jeg læste op på mine lektier. Meget hurtigt efter jeg begyndte at læse om resortet fandt jeg ud af at en af deres specialiteter er mad. I dag vil jeg snakke med jer om Bubo, en af Ekies helt fantastiske spise muligheder – 1 ud af 4 restauranter. Ekies kalder selv Bubo for deres ala carte stolthed og jeg kunne ikke være mere enig. Menuen er moderne græsk og ikke nok med at smagspaletten er helt vidunderlig, anretningen af maden er også helt vildt flot! En rigtig lækker bisken for det sultne øje. Alt man spiser og drikker på Bubo er valgt præcis til dig og din menu, det er virkelig noget man kan mærke når man spiser der. Intet er tilfældigt. At spise på Bubo er lidt som at spise med ens familie det er bare lidt mere michelin agtigt. Servicen er i top, der er en afslappet, lækker stemning og maden ligner noget fra et magasin. Alt dette toppes kun af at man nærmest sidder på stranden og spiser med den mest fantastiske udsigt. Jeg kan kun anbefale alle at prøve denne fantastiske mad oplevelse, det er en man husker.

english: Prior to our arrival at Ekies I did what any well prepared blogger would do, I read up on my home work. Very quickly after I started to read about the resort I found out that one of their specialities is food. Today I want to talk about Bubo, one of Ekies amazing dining opportunities – it is 1 of 4 restaurants. Ekies calles Bubo their ala carte gem and I couldn’t agree more. The menu is modern greek and not only are the flavors mouth watering the way the food is served is also beyond impressive. A real treat for the hungry eye. Everything you eat or drink at this place is carefully selected for you and it really stands out from other restaurant experiences. At least the ones I have tried. Eating at Bubo is kinda like eating with your family but michelin style. It’s comfortable, beautiful, the service is high, friendly and welcoming and the food looks like something out of a magazine. All that is only topped by the fact that you are almost sitting on the beach, eating with a breathtaking view. It’s nothing short of a stunning experience that I would recommend for anyone who loves to treat themselves.

Vi er ankommet! Efter hvad der føles som måneders planlægning og massere sommerfugle i maven, er vi her endelig. Grækenland, du skuffer ikke! Vi ankom i går aftes til det vidunderlige Ekies Resort som ligger ved Thessaloniki. Ja det er korrekt det du læser, det lyder lidt som tzatziki – men det er ikke det samme. Vi er så heldige at vi har fået lov til at bo i en af de helt fantastiske pine suites. Afslappet moderne bungalow med privat pool – ja tak! Vores bønner er blevet hørt. Vi er i himlen! Følg endelig med hele ugen, der vil være updates hver dag fra dette fantastiske sted!

english: It’s real, we have arrived. After months of planning and tons of butterflies in our stomachs we are finally here. Greece, wow, you look beautiful. We arrived yesterday evening at the splendid Ekies Resort in Thessaloniki. Yes, you are right, it kinda sounds like tzatziki. But it’s not the same thing. We have been so lucky to get our very own private pine suite. Relaxed, modern bungalow style and private pool – yes please! Our prayers have been heard. We are in heaven! Stay tuned this entire week for updates on this beautiful place!

I dag da jeg sad og ville bestille en tid hos min læge gik det op for mig at sådan nogen jo også holder sommerferie. Han ville ihvertfald ikke være på kontoret i uge 27-28-29 og 30, “holy shit” tænkte jeg, “så er det ved at være tid til en lille sommerferie guide!” Jeg går selv på ferie på fredag og vil være væk på min første destination helt indtil d. 29/6 – derefter er jeg væk på endnu en destination fra d. 1/7 til d. 11/7. Jeg vil ikke afsløre hvor jeg skal hen endnu, der kommer til at være rigeligt om de to rejser på bloggen henover det næste stykke tid alligevel. Her er dog en lille forsmag på hvad jeg selv ville pakke hvis jeg skulle afsted til varmere lande på ferie. Sandaler, midi kjoler, SPF og et lækkert håndklæde, oh jeg kunne blive ved! God fornøjelse!

english: Today I was trying to order me a time to see my doctor when it dawned on me that those doctor people also go away during the summer. At least thats what I think he will do since he is closed all through weeks 27-28-29 and 30, “holy shit” I thought to myself, “it is very much time for a little summer vacation guide!” I myself will be off on my first holiday this friday and I won’t return until the 29th of june. Then I will be gone from the 1st of july until the 11th of july! I won’t tell you where I am going yet, you will know that soon enough. BUT here is what I would pack if I were going to a warmer climate. Sandals, midi dresses, SPF and nice towels, OH I could go on for days. Enjoy!

Laura og jeg har lavet en lille video om vores seneste tur til Stockholm. Vi var så heldige at være inviteret til YSL beauty club nordic edition, det var så fed en oplevelse og vi var meget stolte af at være blandt de piger som kom afsted. Vi besøgte også lidt samarbejdspartnere og spiste på Riche (som altid!) – enjoy!

english: Laura and I made a fun little video about our trip to Stockholm. We were so lucky to be invited to the YSL beauty club nordic edition, it was such a nice experience and we loved being apart of the girls who got to go! We also visited some of our partners and ate at Riche (our favorite!) – enjoy!

“Bedste taco’s i…” er nok en af mine mest googled sætninger når jeg er ude og rejse. Det er seriøst bare en af de lækreste ting at putte i munden (pun intended) – så vi gik rundt der i Venice og så det her lille skur agtige sted med et skilt udenfor hvor der stod “bedste tacos i Venice”. Det er noget af et statement hva? Altså nu har jeg jo ikke smagt alle tacos i Venice men jeg vil sige det sådan her. Vi var i LA i 8 dage og spiste der 3 gange. Jeg siger det bare. Sæt det her sted på din liste over steder du skal spise (jeg ved du har sådan en!) og gem den til din næste tur til LA. Du vil ikke fortryde det.

english: “Best tacos in…” is probably one of my most googled sentences when I travel. It’s just one of the best things to put in ones mouth (pun intended) – so here we were, wondering around Venice and we saw this little woodshed looking place with a sign that said “best tacos in Venice”. That’s quite a statement huh? Now since I haven’t eaten at all the taco places in Venice I cannot confirm that statement. But, I will say this. We stayed in Los Angles for 8 days and we went back to Tocaya 3 times. Just saying. Put this on your “places to eat” list (I know you have one!) and save it for the next time you visit LA. You won’t regret it.

Jeg havde en meget interessant samtale med en af mine veninder fredag eftermiddag. Hun havde lige været på weekend tur i Amsterdam og sagde til mig “kender du det når man besøger et sted og med det samme får man en følelse af at man bare kunne leve der?” Det kender jeg bestemt. Det er ikke mange steder i verden man får det sådan med, ihvertfald ikke mig. Jeg mener, jo jeg synes da det er skønt at besøge Paris og jeg holder da meget af Milano, og når jeg f.eks. tager hjem til Silkeborg hvor jeg voksede op er det fantastisk fordi jeg elsker min familie men der er ingen af de steder der nogensinde har givet mig følelsen af at høre til som sådan. Det var lige indtil jeg mødte verdens berømte Los Angeles. Det var kærlighed ved første blik, jeg besøgte L.A første gang da jeg var 16 og det er det sted jeg har besøgt aller mest siden. Det får mig til at føle mig større, bedre, roligere, fri, som om jeg ikke kan gå i stykker og mange andre ting men det får mig også til at føle mig langt væk hjemmefra. Hvorfor kunne det ikke have været New York jeg var forelsket i?! Det er meget tættere på. Jeg bliver altid lidt blue når jeg kommer hjem fra L.A. Jeg græder endda når vi letter – hver eneste gang. Some things never change!

english: I had a very interesting conversation with one of my friends this friday afternoon. She had just visited Amsterdam on a weekend getaway and she said to me “you know when you really just get that feeling about a city, like you could really just be you there?”. I know exactly what thats like. It’s not many places in the world one feels that way about, not me at least. I mean sure I think Milan is wonderful and I love to visit Paris, and going home to Silkeborg where I grew up is fantastic because I love my family but non of those places has ever given me that sense of “belonging”. Until I met the famous Los Angeles. It was love at first sight, I visited the first time when I was 16 and it’s probably the place I have traveled to the most since then. It makes me feel, bigger, better, calmer, free, unbreakable and many more things but it also makes me feel far away from home. Why couldn’t it have been New York I fell in love with?! It’s so much closer. The L.A blues always come over me when I get home, I even cry on the plane as it takes of – every single time. Some things never change!

At flyve er en ting jeg holder meget af. Lige fra at booke turen og pakke kufferten til at stå i lufthavnen og sidde i flyet. Det er alt sammen en del af oplevelsen når man rejser, det er ikke kun destinationen. Når man rejser lige så meget som mig prøver man alle mulige forskellige airlines og hver gang jeg skal prøve en ny en glæder jeg mig! Der er jo så mange! Denne gang havde vi fornøjelsen af at flyve med det nye WOW air til Los Angeles, et selskab jeg endnu ikke havde haft fornøjelsen af at flyve med. Jeg har dog længe gerne ville da jeg er helt besat af deres pink fly! De er selv super dygtige på sociale medier og har en sej instagram profil som gjorde jeg slet ikke kunne vente med at flyve med dem. WOW air er et islandsk lavprisselskab som specialisere sig i at flyve de lange ture til super billige priser. New York fra 1.985 kr, Boston fra 999 kr, San Fransisco fra 1.099 kr – I mean what? Jeg tager hatten af for at nogen har gjort det til sin vision at alle skal kunne være ægte globetrottere uden at smadre sin opsparing, det super god stil! Der er ikke TV skærme i sæderne på nogen af WOW’s fly men opladnings muligheder til både computer, ipad og telefon på hele rejsen! Og så er der god benplads. Jeg har ihvertfald et par steder på kloden jeg snart kan få krydset af når det er så billigt at komme dertil! TAK til WOW air for at gøre det muligt for os at komme til L.A! Det var en fornøjelse.

english: To fly is something I sincerely enjoy. From booking the trip and packing a suitcase to be in the airport and actually be in the plane. It’s all apart of the experience when traveling, it’s not just the destination. When you travel as much as I do you get to try tons of different airlines and everything I get to try one I haven’t tried before, I am so excited! There are so many! This time I had the pleasure of flying with the new airline, WOW air, to Los Angeles. An airline I had yet not had the pleasure of flying with. I have wanted to for a while though as I am just obsessed with their pink airplanes! Also they are super skilled at social media so I couldn’t wait to fly with them after seeing their profile on instagram. WOW air is an Icelandic low fare airline who specializes in flying the long routes for less money. New York from 1.985 kr, Boston from 999 kr, San Fransisco from 1.099 kr – I mean what? I applaud companies who makes it easier for people to live out their travel dreams without wrecking their wallets. There are no TV’s on the plane but plenty of charging stations for computer, iPad and iPhone for the whole trip! And good legroom! I have some places I now see possible to get crossed of my travel bucket list! Thank you WOW air for making it possible for us to fly yo L.A this easter! It was a pleasure!

2 timer nord for Los Angeles ligger smukke Santa Barbara. Jeg havde endnu ikke selv været der men mine forældre har og sagde at jeg ville elske den lille spansk inspirerede by så, afsted med mig. Turen derop var skøn, svingende og der var smuk udsigt langt hen af vejen. Santa Barbara var ren og pæn med lave huse og en hyggelig shopping gade. Der var idyllisk og det var lige hvad jeg havde brug for. Et pusterum. Bevares, L.A er fantastisk, men den er også halv larmende, beskidt og fyldt med biler. Santa Barbara var noget helt andet. Midt i byen fandt vi denne fuldstændig betagende trappe. Jeg måtte bare få taget billeder på den, også selvom den var i fuld sol. Sådan noget kraftigt lys kan stadigvæk være lidt svært for mig at styre men det lykkedes heldigvis. Ellers skulle jeg have ventet hele dagen på at den kom i skygge for skydes, det skulle den.

english: 2 hours north of Los Angles lies the beautiful city of Santa Barbara. I hadn’t been there yet but my parents have and they said I would absolutely love it so, away I went. The ride up there was gorgeous as expected. The roads were curvy and the view was spectacular most of the way. Santa Barbara was beautiful, clean and heavily influenced by spanish culture. Yum! It was just what I needed, a breather. I mean, L.A is amazing no doubt but it’s also noisy, dirty and filled with cars. Santa Barbara is just the opposite. In the city center we found this beyond amazing set of stairs. I just HAD to get my photos taken on these steps even though the sun was coming down hard. I have to admit I still have trouble sometimes controlling harsh light like this but I managed. Luckily, otherwise we would have had to wait all day for the sun to move because I had to shoot on these stairs!
