Lately, I haven’t gone out to take decent photos. So for this week photo challenge, I decided to post pictures I took when I was travelling in Aarhus last December.
Today, I decided to participate in a weekly photo challenge. When I read the theme for this week, I was not sure how to interpret forces of nature. My understanding was that a natural force should leave a strong impact…an aftermath of a natural disaster such as the recent earthquake in Kathmandu or the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami, which killed more than 200,000 people. So I did a basic research: what is a force of nature and what is considered a force of nature? Then I decided to stick to the simple force of nature – the sunset. On Saturday, I went to watch the sun set with two Danish friends, who flew to the Philippines the next day. We had drinks and great conversation. As the sun made its way into the horizon, there was a moment of silence. There were people taking pictures and there were those who just sat quietly and enjoyed the moment. It was a beautiful feeling. As we headed for dinner, Marina and Mette agreed watching the sunset was the perfect choice to end their two-week holiday in Sabah. And …
The bus took me to Petra right after I touched down in Amman for the first time, on 14 Sept 2013. I was not alone, though. I was joined by my mother and there were about 40 of us or so from Malaysia. We were on a 14-day pilgrimage tour, which covers Jordan, Israel, and the Palestinian territories.
I had been a victim of an unfortunate event but I managed to arrive Aarhus on Dec 18 at 6.40pm, about three hours behind schedule. To cut a long story short, I missed my noon bus because I got lost looking for a train station. Anyway, the wind in this part of Jutland was colder than in Copenhagen when I arrived. Currently, it reads 6°C for both regions and according to my weather forecast, snow is expected in Copenhagen on Thursday while Aarhus will be snowing on Saturday. I am contemplating extending my stay. *sigh*
I finally arrived Denmark on Dec 12. Copenhagen is such a cosy city in the winter with friendly streets. So it is easy to get lost and easy find your way home. This is Copenhagen in a day, guided by my two Danes friends before I take the streets alone.
