Leaves

Ah, what a novel thing, having seasons.

They don’t really exist in Los Angeles. It’s more like: Warm, less warm, slightly warmer, pretty warm. Well, Copenhagen is all about that changing season game. Nowhere is that more apparent than the Assistens Cemetery in Nørrebro.

This is where a bunch of notable Danes (like Hans Christian Andersen) are buried.

Apparently, if you want to be buried here nowadays, there’s a big long waiting list and a lot of hoops you have to jump through first. (Or hoops your loved ones have to jump through? Since, you know, you’re dead.)

As weird as it sounds to hang out in a cemetery, it’s actually really common to come here for a casual “walk in the park” or to hang out with friends. There are always a lot of people walking their dogs and pushing strollers around.

Gratuitous picture of my bike cause it’s practically my bestie in Copes.

This cutie was just wandering around, jumping in leaves, being a general slobber sergeant. Made me really miss my pups.

It’s always so peaceful and serene in here. It really gets you out of the hustle and bustle of Copenhagen city life and let’s just you just zen out and appreciate life. Life, you are appreciated.

  1. So beautifully written, and the photos you take tell such a bigger tale. You make me want to jump on a plane (and bring a heater with me). :0)

    1. Aw, thank you! Come visit and I promise you won’t be disappointed. Copenhagen is so wonderful in so many ways. But if you come anytime during the months of October – March, don’t forget your space heater and power converter. 😉
