So today is not only the one year anniversary of my humble little blog, but also my 100th post! If you had told me this time last year that I would be posting this from Denmark, I definitely would not have believed you - I would probably not have believed that I had even made 100 posts, let alone be living somewhere as 'exotic' and far away as Scandinavia! Some mornings I wake up and wonder where on earth I am and how I got here... but I am here nevertheless and am enjoying it very much.

To celebrate, as many bloggers tend to do, I will run a tiny little give away (as such). It won't be much more than a letter in your mailbox and a handful of bits and pieces from around Denmark and Copenhagen, but everybody loves a bit of snail mail, right?* Anyway, it will be a name-out-of-the-hat affair, and you have until I get back from Barcelona (Wednesday) to leave a little comment on this post :) it can be as simple as 'hi' or, if you're feeling adventurous, tell me your favourite song at the moment - I love hearing what other people are listening to. Me? I'm always listening to Interpol (although 'Way Out' by the Yeah Yeah Yeah's is stuck in my head at the moment). I don't know how many people even read this blog... my guess is anywhere between 3 and...13? We will see :)

I took the pictures above back in February, and they are all from home. One thing that I cannot get over is how BLUE the sky is. I'm lucky these days if I can spy a gap of milky-blue between the grey, let alone some full on colour like at home.

*If someone FROM Denmark happens to get drawn out, you may have to wait until I get home for your letter - otherwise it could just be boring for you!

Congratulations on one year! It's good to hear you're enjoying Denmark. You sound like you're having a good time, and the Denmark photos are amazing. Makes my life look positively boring. My musical taste will show me to be more of a dork than is already known - I've got a hymn stuck in my head! xx

I love you.
well done on getting 100 posts, i've enjoyed every one of them! surprisingly my musical tastes right now would steer towards sigur ros...

p.s you don't have to pick me as the winner just because you love me... i'll let you choose some other lucky duck.

jeg elsker dig. xoxo

*yay* woo for 100 :)

I just realised these photos weren't from Denmark. (Observant, aren't I?) How do you take such good photos from a place as boring as home? I didn't even recognise them. xx

Congratulations on your blog anniversary and 100th post, Steph! And I'm sure you know that I'm a dedicated reader of your lovely blog :)

Fave song: Paris is Burning - Ladyhawke (it's quite electro for me, but I can't get it out of my head!)

"hi" ^^

I actually had to check my ipod to see what i've been listening to lately. how lame is that, that I couldn't have told you otherwise? According to my iPod Tscaikovsky (thats his name) I've been ODing on Coldplay's "Viva La Vida". So there. I'm a sucker for strings.

Congratulations on your 100th post!
I've been enjoying your blog since I found it - and somehow it makes me feel connected to my memories in good old Adelaide. :) Especially this post of course. I recognised the Exeter Hotel right away!
At the moment I'm listening a lot to "Geraldine" by Glasvegas. :)
Enjoy Barcelona, lucky you!
