I Wish Every Building Had a Rainbow on Top

Last time I wrote about not really making resolutions, but one resolution I always tend to make — and fail — is to travel more. Despite not making that resolution this year, I’ve already started to make it happen. And by “I”, I mean “we”. One of the reasons I fail this resolution each year is because I’ve been “alone” for a while. I do actually enjoy travelling alone, but I only ever manage a couple of trips a year on my own. It’s always so much better when you have someone to explore with. This is the first year in a long time that I have that someone, and we’ve already lined up some amazing trips.

Last week we went to Denmark (my first time), and this weekend we’re going to Italy (again, my first time). We also have a mystery trip at the beginning of March, and a week in Montenegro at the end of March. I’m going to Iceland as part of the Light Grey Art Lab Residency in August too. That all might sound a tiny bit nuts and probably very expensive, but it’s actually neither. I’m going to write more soon about finding the time and money to travel often — spoiler alert: it has nothing to do with luck.

Denmark was an amazing country full of amazing people. I don’t often get the urge to revisit places too quickly, but I’d already happily go back to Denmark. We basically just drove around and explored a lot. But we also walked around a lot, got battered by crazy storms, visited one of the best art galleries I’ve been to in years, and went to a lot of supermarkets. I also tried to get back into the habit of actually taking photos while I was away, which I’ve pretty much stopped in the last few years for some reason. So although these photos aren’t great, at least I took them, and hopefully I’ll have many better photos to show you over the next year or so.
