To Aalborg & Back

This song and these views from the plane window are the bombbbb

More of Aalborg


Here's some more from my walks around Aalborg.
Now I'm back in Tallinn, but I swear it was one of the most travels ever (going to Shanghais was also rather stressful, but this was new level). I had everything planned out nicely, but so that I'd arrive to CPH by 1 pm and at the airport at 2 pm, but the bus arrived an hour late. I was almost losing hope, but the prospect of spending the night at the airport wasn't appealing, so I ran for my life. I must say, I'm kinda proud for jumping on the right train and arriving to the airport, getting through security gates with long lines and running to the last gate through the whole huge airport... all by 14:40. Haha, now I clearly see that morning running has paid off well.
It was the most perfect weather for flying! I haven't sat at the window for a long time, so I'd forgotten how amazing the view can be. Favourite thing: flying through the clouds!
My mom picked me up from the airport and then we went to Must Puudel for some dinner and wine to celebrate writing that exam and making it on time. 
So good to be home! Can't believe I'm leaving again on the 26th of August for a long time again.

Quickie to Aalborg


Hejså!
Denmark is brutally dragging me back as if saying: "You come back and love me!", so here I am. Again. Ugh.
This time on the North-Coast, in a town called Aalborg and I must confess, that so far it's actually quite lovable. I see what you're trying to do here, Denmark. It's working.
Still not amused by the inter-city travels tho - my bus from Copenhagen to Aalborg was on the road for 6.5 hours. Gentle reminder, that it took me 7 hours by bus to get to Berlin from Sønderborg. 
While Denmark is about the same size as Estonia, the country is more stretched out in length + traffic accidents on the high way and here you go, 6.5 hours. 
Anyways, I just got back from Aalborg University where I wrote my Corporate Finance exam (one of the reasons why my summer sucks lol, summer school). The campus is so different compared to SDU in Sønderborg, like it's made of little separate houses instead of just one big building. But yeah, overall I found out that I actually am enrolled at Aalborg University and should order my student card. It was also a surprise to find out that I have a student e-mail at AAU, so like, ugh, wow, where am I enrolled? :D
Now I'm done with this and having my first coffee of the day. Had a walk around town also, but seems like summer hasn't reached Denmark either, it's so cold and windy! I'm not really sure where to go here tho' and I also find it so strange that I have to pack and head on the bus to CPH tomorrow again. Nomad life!

Shanghai 5 by Charles Lanceplaine

"It's a great place to be super young, because there's so many options to do, so you just kinda suck in all this culture and action and excitement."
-Brian Smith, professional skateboarder


 China based film-maker Charles Lanceplaine made this little documentary about the skating scene in Shanghai. Altough this piece is from 2010, it still feels super fresh and makes me oh so nostalgic for these streets.
And yes, Love Park in Shanghai is the spot - just like Freedom Square in Tallinn.
