Today is my last day in Skagen for a while. Soon I´m of to Portugal, then a few days in Copenhagen, then Aarhus and then back to Skagen.
This Summer is busy in a good way 🙂
The above photos is from a little secret gem I found in Skagen this week. It´s a place for the fishermen´s wooden sheds. They keep their fishing gear in them and they are all painted red. So cute.
Even though I´ve had my home in Skagen for a year now, I´m still exploring the area, I keep finding wonderful, little known places. I feel like a child on adventure…lol.. this week I also found a small forrest and new beautiful tracking road.
Are you looking for a stylish + high-quality camera strap? Don´t look any further, I made a little curated selection for you.
I´m personally looking into camera straps at the moment – honestly I should have changed my strap ages ago! I´m still running around with the official Canon camera strap (not very stylish OR practical).
I like to carry my camera over my shoulder, across my chest, but the Canon strap is not really long enough for this. It´s time for me to make the change and start wearing a good strong work-horse of a camera strap.
In this post you see my favorite choices of camera straps – now I just have to choose one (or two), which is the hardest part 🙂
My second home is located in the North of Denmark, in a little seaside fishing village named Skagen (pronounced Skain). The town has just 8,220 inhabitants, but during Summer that number turns into more than 50.000. So needless to say the town is busy at the moment with loads of tourists from all around the world.
Yellow Houses in Skagen, Denmark
Skagen is an utterly delicious slice of Denmark and also said to be the most sunny area in Denmark. The town has it´s own style and look , filled with small, distinctive yellow houses framed by white-picket fences and red-tiled roofs.
The houses are a huge part of the charm in Skagen. I love to walk around and study the old architecture and recently I´ve become very curious of the history of some of the homes.
Many of the old house used to belong to 19th-century Scandinavian painters and some of the houses are still looking exactly as they did then. After being part of this town for about a year now, I´m starting to know the names of the houses and where the different painters used to live. A few of the artist homes are Museums today, but many of them are still privately owned.
Today I´m just showing you a small handful of some of the houses here in Skagen – the photo with the two bikes are my own home. The rest are located around my hood.
