Around the Office

When I first learned about work-life balance in Denmark, I was told that a standard working week was 37 hours. Though I’ve had a few of those weeks since being here, it’s been much more standard to work 60-80 hour weeks, especially when on a competition team. Hence, the office has become a second home.

Our Second Home

It’s not lost on us that we got incredibly lucky with our second apartment. Though only available for three months while the family who owns it was in Australia, this apartment was the best place any of us have ever lived and deserves an entire blog post to itself.

Berlin

In late January, some visiting friends and I headed to Berlin for the weekend. It was freezing, but we still managed to take full advantage of the trip.

Copenhagen in January

The first month in Copenhagen was dark and cold. Kelly and I lived in a small apartment in Østerbro, a quiet neighborhood filled with young families. We loved the proximity to the lakes, and a longer morning commute to Dorte Mandrup’s office in Vesterbro aligned perfectly with the sunrise.

Lots of visitors in January, along with a much needed escape from the cold, made for a good opportunity to visit the Danish Design Museum, the Louisiana and the Botanical Gardens.
