I know I’m a bit late writing the catch up article for April – sorry! But I promise there’s a perfectly good reason. The reason is … I’m in Denmark!
Now you’re all going: “Say whaaat?” I know. I know. I was in Malaysia and now I’m in Denmark. They’re not exactly next door to each other. But I really wanted to see my family.
The best things that happened this month
• I surprised my family in Denmark
This was without a doubt my favourite part of April. I had planned a trip to Denmark, booked my flight and no one knew about it. I wanted to surprise them and they were indeed surprised. But in a good way, of course!
I haven’t had a dull moment since I arrived. I’ve been seeing my family and doing stuff every single day, so if you feel like I’ve been a bit quiet in the past week then this is why.
However, me flying back to Denmark does not mean that I’m done with my travels. I’m very far from done. I’m venturing out again sometime in June where I will visit Hungary and I’m going camping in Lapland. It’s gonna be pretty sweet.
• Visiting Legoland with my little sister and my bonus mum
I’ve been to Legoland a few times as a kid and I had fond memories from those trips. So when my bonus mum invited me to Legoland with her and my little sister, I couldn’t refuse.
It was a great day with not a lot of people and the weather stayed dry – although it was cold!
But it does turn out that I’m a bit of a chicken when it comes to the rides. I think (well, I know) that I was the one who screamed the most. The poor children kept looking at me in a funny way.
• Seeing the orangutans in Borneo
I think this experience is one of the highlights of my entire trip so far. I wrote an article about it and I hope many more people will support these amazing creatures and adopt one. I adopted a little one called Peanut – his head is shaped like a peanut. Too cute!
But seeing these orangutans up close was incredible. It’s extremely difficult to describe. The feeling I had when I stood right next to them was amazing. I never thought I’d see one (let alone 3-5) so close.
Do visit Borneo – the place is simply fantastic.
The worst things that happened this month
I’ve decided that I only want to focus on the good things that happened in April. In fact, nothing major really happened this month that was negative. There was a terrible hotel room, but I got that one refunded and I’ve been fighting off a cold. But besides that it’s been a pretty good month.
Places I’ve been this month
Borneo, Cameron Highlands, Kuala Lumpur – Malaysia.
Nyborg, Odense – Denmark.
Plans for May
I’ve got absolutely no plans except for enjoying being home. I want to spend as much time with my family as I possibly can. I have some nieces and nephews who are very happy to have me home again and my job is being the cool auntie, so I will enjoy it as much as I can.
What I’m reading on my Kindle
My Kindle has sadly been neglected a little bit lately, especially now that I’m in Denmark, but I do try to read a few chapters here and there. The only problem is just that I’m so tired in the evenings that I usually end up falling asleep with the Kindle in my hand.
The ones I did finish in April was:
Blink by K.L. Slater
Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer
Beautiful Liar by Louise Mullins
Bad Little Girl by Frances Vick
Find Me by J.S. Monroe
Lies by T.M. Logan
Okay, maybe I did read a bit after all …
So tell me, what are you plans for the month of May? Le me know by leaving a comment.
