Jeg elsker hvordan man kan se alt på internettet inden man ankommer til et hotel. Man ved allerede hvordan udsigten vil være, hvordan rummene ser ud og hvilke farver de køre på hotellet. Da jeg så Domes Noruz online vidste jeg med det samme at jeg ville lave et bronzy, beige, dewy, yummy makeup look som kunne matche de smukke omgivelser. Alt her er beige, hvidt og brunt – et sandt instagram paradis. Den nye Coco family bronze kollektion fra Marc Jacobs er holdt i helt hvid og ser frisk, lækker og sommerlig ud – helt perfekt til dette look. Jeg har holdt makeuppen simpel med lidt glitter på øjenlågene og alt holdt i brun i stedet for sort så det ikke bliver for hårdt. Fregnerne er selvfølgelig valgfrie men i den her græske sol kan jeg ikke holde mine væk fra mit ansigt. God fornøjelse!

 english: I love how you can see everything on the internet before you arrive at a hotel. You know what the view will be like, what the rooms look like and what the colors at the hotel is. So when I saw Domes Noruz online I instantly wanted to do a bronzy, beige, dewy, yummy makeup look to match the beauty of the hotel. Everything here is beige, white and brown – a real instagram miracle. The new Coco family bronze collection from Marc Jacobs is kept in white and looks beautiful, summery and fresh so it fits perfectly. I kept my look simple with a touch of glitter on the eyelids, everything in brown in stead of black to give a soft summer feel to the face. Freckles are optional but I can’t keep mine of my face in this greek sun. Enjoy!

Vi er endelig i Chania, vi bor på det fantastiske hotel, Domes Noruz, som er en del af den internationale kæde, Autograph collection. Her er helt fantastisk og MEGET varmt. Chania er æld gammel og har så meget historie at man nærmest bliver blæst bagover når man går rundt. Kreta har været besat op til flere gange og særligt Chania bære virkelig præg af de mange folkeslag og religioner som har boet på øen. Laura og jeg besøgte både gamle Chania og nye Chania – vi købte is i de små gader og købte veninde halskæder i en turistfælde butik. Det var helt perfekt. Her dansende i aftensolen, kys fra Grækenland.

english: We are finally in Chania, vi are staying at the fantastic, Domes Noruz, that is apart of the beautiful Autograph collection. It’s amazing here and SO hot! Chania is super old and has so much history that you almost feel blown backwards when walking around. Crete has been under occupation several times and it is especially visible in Chania. Many different nations and religions has occupied the island through time. Laura and I visited both old Chania and new Chania – we had ice cream in the corky streets and bought friendship necklaces in a tourist shop. It was absolutely perfect. Here, dancing in the evening light, kisses from Greece.

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.

“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!
