I sidste uge var vi på vores første storbyferie med drengene. Turen gik en lille storby, nemlig til Edinburgh, og det var fantastisk. Jeg har flere gange tænkt, at det er sjovt, som rejser forandrer sig, når man får børn. Vi har oplevet det på vores sommerferier, der oftest involverer en del natur og vandreture. Men det er absolut også tilfældet, når man er i en by med de mange by-relaterede oplevelsesmuligheder.

Last week was spent on our first city vacation with the boys. We went to a smallish big city, Edinburgh, and it was fantastic. I have several time thought about, how amazingly a travelling experience changes, when you travel with kids. We have felt it on our summer vacations, though they often involve hiking and nature experiences. But it certainly is also the case, when you are in a city with the manifold attractions and experiences that are available in such a place.

Vi turede rundt, så godt vi nu kunne og fik set både borg og whisky, vulkan og museum. Den gamle by er fyldt med smukke gamle huse og stejle gyder med trapper. Sært og sjovt.

We toured the city as well as we could, and saw castle and whisky, vulcanoes and museums. The old town is filled with beautiful, old houses, and narrow, steep closes (with and without steps). Strange and yet wonderful.

En anden ting, der fascinerede mig, var hvor tæt på naturen alligevel er i Edinburgh. Holyrood Park med Salisbury Crags og Arthur’s Seat er nærmest i centrum, og man kan fra byens mange højder se over vandet (Firth of Forth) nordpå, eller sydpå til Pentland Hills. Vi fik meget lyst til at tage tilbage udstyret med en bil og nogle flere ugers ferie. Jeg tror, vi bliver nødt til at kigge lidt nærmere på Skotland inden længe.

Another thing that fascinated me, was how close to the centre of the city the wilder landscape was. Holyrood Park with Salisbury Crags and Arthur’s Seat is almost in the centre of Edinburgh, and from the many heights you can easily see across the water (Firth of Forth) to the North, or to the south toward Pentland Hills. We were charmed and feel ready to go back armed with a car and some more weeks of vacation to explore the Scottish landscape. I think, we will be back before too long.

Ferie er nu noget af det bedste jeg ved! At komme helt ned i gear, gå lange ture, nyde livet og familien og udsigten og tiden… Det er til gengæld tilsvarende hårdt at skulle tilbage op i gear. Dagene flyver pludselig igen afsted, og er fyldt med hverdagens trummerum. Men det er jo præcis det, der gør ferie så skønt – kontrasten mellem den og hverdagen. Heldigvis kan jeg så forlænge ferienydelsen ved at vise et par glimt af den her på bloggen.

Vacation is one of my favorite activities! To gear down completely (almost to a full stop), go on long walks, enjoy life and family and the view and time… It is proportionally hard to get my behind back into gear now that everyday life has returned. The days fly by (again) and has been re-filled with all the little things that make up an “everyday”. But that is exactly what makes vacations so wonderful – the contrast to everyday life. And luckily I can extend the vacation feeling (at least a little) by showing you some pictures here on the blog.

Familiens sommerferie gik (igen) til Norge – det var en god beslutning. Den norske natur gør noget godt for mig og får mig til at slappe fuldstændig af.

Our vacation was (once more) spent in Norway – it was a good decision. The Norwegian nature triggers something good in me – makes me relax perfectly.

Det er godt at vide, at Norge ikke løber nogen steder – og at jeg skal derop igen lige om straks, når jeg skal til Oslo Strikkefestival. Efteråret ser allerede ud til at blive travlt og godt.

It is good to know that Norway wont go away – and that I’ll return in a short while, when I’m going to Oslo Knitting Festival. My fall looks to be wonderful and busy already.

Jeg håber, at resten af blogland også har haft en dejlig sommer!

I hope that all of you on the other side of this blog also have had a wonderful summer.

Love getting beautiful yarn in the post 😍 But it is especially appreciated today, where I’m home with a sick kid, a mild autumn cold, and the general November grayness 🙏🏻
