Semi nomadic parenting

This post is a “work in progress”. Please be in touch if you have any tips/ thoughts! Since our daughter was born last year, my partner and I often think about whether this spells the end for our international travels for the next 18 years, save for some 1-3 week holidays out of term time. […]

Hope you had a good New Year’s Eve last night. Slightly different newsletter this week – perhaps the end of an era? Update to the newsletterOver the holidays I’ve been thinking about what to do regarding the writing I do, which right now is mostly via this newsletter. My current “output” is a combination of […]

We had a dusting of snow the other day in Copenhagen which (somewhat) made up for several days of everyone’s favourite grey-skies-sideways-rain weather combo. Corona numbers are up again, and so social meet-ups are getting cancelled and it’s now a bit more of a thing to be aware of. Work stuff is going well on […]

From the outside, October appeared to be a busy month with the release/ re-release of two big podcast projects. The Carbon Removal Show went live after a year’s research and went straight to being the number one nature podcast in the UK. You can read more about the show here: https://restored.cc/ What The Denmark is back with Season […]

October is here and, I don’t know about you, but it now feels like we’re in the countdown to the end of the year. The last few months have been a bit tough on the business front. A number of clients got cold feet and despite much effort to speak with potential podcast sponsors I’ve been […]

Things are beginning to get autumnal in Denmark and it feels like after a summer of a few mini-breaks, things are now in gear to see out the rest of the year. Denmark more or less feels free of Covid (the only restrictions now are to show a coronapas before entering a club) and events/ […]

July is the month in Denmark where the majority of the country goes on holiday… for the majority of the month. I thought this was just one of those urban myths about Scandinavian long summers, but sure enough, the out-of-office response I have been getting has averaged out at 3 weeks. One person I’ve been […]

Happy July! In Denmark things are basically back to normal regarding Covid, especially as one only needs to show a negative Covid test (or vaccination certificate) to return from most foreign countries. Though the furthest we’ve managed to exercise this new freedom is an afternoon trip to Malmø – a city in Sweden literally 25 […]

Summer’s here? In the last few days the sun has been sporadically shining in Copenhagen which (along with easing lockdown restrictions) means that when the clouds have cleared the city flocks to bars/ open spaces to have an after work beer. A welcome novelty. The work front has felt like a war of admin attrition. […]

Some flickers of normality have begun emerging here in Denmark with the ability to sit indoors(!) at a restaurant, albeit with a “corona passport” (i.e. a negative test result from the last 72 hours). We’ve had our first meal out of the year which felt incredibly exciting, though it’s still a faff to go through […]
