Photo diary: University of Copenhagen Botanical Gardens

We didn’t spend a long time in Copenhagen, but the University of Copenhagen Botanical Gardens sure left a deep memory. (It’s more commonly referred to as Copenhagen Botanical Gardens!)

This is one of my favourite set of photos taken over our entire trip last June, and I think it’s only right I put up a photo diary. I’ll let the pictures do the talking in this one:

Thoughts of a self-conscious / awkward photographer

I am an awkward photographer.

I love taking photos. I’m certainly not a professional, but it’s something I enjoy doing and am passionate about. Especially while I’m travelling, I’ll never be seen without my camera.

Our first day in sweden.

We’d just landed in Copenhagen, and rented a car to drive our way to Sweden, where we were going to spend the first 4 days of our trip. Always really intrigued and excited when I’m in a new country for the first time, and even more so when it’s at the start of the holiday!

Just imagine my excitement when we drove past this entire field of poppy flowers! From a distance they looked like a huge sea of red, and I told my dad we had to get closer so I could see it. (Also to take photos of it.)
