I have found some of my favourites from BikBok.
I actually really like the BikBok stores, unfortunately we only have one store in Denmark. Every time I'm in Copenhagen I have to stop by to se if they have something nice.

Everyday life

It is long time since I made one of these posts with facts about me, so I thought it would be a great idea to take some of the basic facts.

So here we go:

  1. My name is Trine Krogh Jacobsen
  2. I'm 23 years old (220993)
  3. I live in an apartment in Odense with my boyfriend Christian
  4. I just finished my bachelor degree in architectural technology and construction management
  5. I'm an only child
  6. My parents, my family and most of my friends lives at Sjælland, where I also grow up
  7. I'm a figure skater. I started when I was 9 years old, had a break from I was 19 to 22 and just started again half a year ago. I almost lived in the skating rink from I was 9 to 18 years old.
  8. I like fitness and eating healthy. Not like a fanatic, but I think about what I eat, and I try to workout minimum 3 times a week.
  9. I'm a bit addicted to my phone and especially Instagram. That's also why i started the blog 1,5 year ago.
  10. I love shopping! I always have a bunch of thing that I want to buy, all from small thing to the home to make-up or to clothes.

Vacation

This is the fifth and last post from our Tenerife vacation.

January 10

We woke up at 7 am, got picked up by the bus at 8.15 am and got to the city Masca around 11 am.
The Masca Valley is a 8 km trekking trip, that goes from 600 m above the sea level to the sea level. It's a kind of hard trip to walk if you don't do anything active in your everyday life. We went with a guide and around 16 other people from Denmark, Sweden and Norway.
It was so beautiful all the way, and I'm glad we did the trip in the winter. It can get over 50 degrees in the summer, and we only had around 20 degrees which was a really good temperature.

When you get to the sea level, this is your first sight.

Tenerife almost only has black sand beaches, and it actually looks really nice.

January 11

Last fully day at Tenerife.

We had to deliver the car to the rental service, and then we went for a drink with Christian's parents.

We went back to the hotel, got some tan at our balcony and went to the rooftop pool for a last swim. I'm really gonna miss that pool and that view from the rooftop.

In the evening we went to the a la Carte restaurant at the hotel again, and the food was really amazing.

January 12

Last day.
Christian's parents picked us up at 9.30 am, cause we had to be at the airport at 10 am.

The flight home went really well, on time and everything. My patents picked us up at Copenhagen Airport, we went for some dinner and had a 1,5 hour drive home to Odense. We were home around 10 pm, and almost went straight to bed.

January 13

Home.
Best night of sleep. I really love our own bed, pillows and blankets.

This has been an amazing vacation! It was around 23 degrees everyday, sun and we really got to relax. We have experienced so many things.
Actually it was our first vacation together over one week. We both agreed that we could do two weeks again. It was so amazing. One week are just not enough. When you are away from home two weeks or longer, you really learn to appreciate the things at home.

And now, only 60 days to next vacation: Skiing in Idre Fjell, Sweden.


XOXO

Vacation

The fourth blog post from our Tenerife vacation

January 6

Secondday at the hotel and living near the city and the beach.

We went for a walk at the beach, went for a bit of shopping and got some dinner and drinks. We walked 12 km and went back to the hotel for some relaxing. Not that interesting day, but we were really tired.

January 7

Woke up, got breakfast and went for a walk at the beach, but to the other side. We walked 7,5 km without water or sunscreen, not that cleaver, but it was so beautiful. I really like all the palms.

When we got back home, we went for a swim at the rooftop pool.

After dinner, we had bought some champagne and went for a dip in our spa bath.

January 8

Up again and breakfast.
We went for a one hour drive to the volcano Teide. It's the biggest volcano at Tenerife, so we had to see it, but unfortunately the cable car to the top of Teide was closed because of wind. So we went for a little walk and drove back home. It was really cold and windy up there.

January 9

We had to be at Christian's parents restaurant at 10, because his mom and I had a appointment at a nail salon. We both got our nails done, so elegant and really cheap!

After we drove to the volcano Teide again, cause the cable car was open today. We got as close to the top as possible. The walking route from the top cable car station was close because it was so cold and windy, there was too much ice and snow. It was so beautiful up there.

In the evening we had a reservation at the a la Carte restaurant at the hotel. The food was really good!

Starter: Carpaccio

Main course: Rib eye steak

Dessert: Brownie with ice cream

One more post to come from the vacation with the 3 last days including our trekking trip to the Masca Valley, pool pictures, the flight back home and thoughts about the trip.

XOXO

Vacation

We arrived at the hotel at January 5, which you can read a bit about in my last post here.

We got a suite with the room number 419.

Our big and very comfortable bed

Our little seating

Our bathroom with private Jacuzzi, 2 sinks, 1 normal bath and one toilet.
The suite actually has 2 toilets, one in the bathroom and one in the other room.

A kind of walk-in-clothes

The balcony

The view from the balcony

The big pool on the main floor

1/3 of the rooftop pool

I really like this hotel. The staff are so sweet and want to help with everything.
Because we have a suite, we have access to a exclusive lounge with free drinks.

We still have 5 days left here at Tenerife. I can't believe we have already been here for 9 days. Tomorrow we are going to Teide, the volcano and on Tuesday we are joining a trekking tripe to the Masca Valley.
Pictures will come in the next post.

XOXO

Vacation

This is the next post about our Tenerife trip.
You can see the first post from our holiday here.


January 1

Woke up a bit late with a little hangover.

Actually this was a pretty boring day, we were sitting on the balcony most of the day, getting a little sun and just relaxed. In the evening we went to Los Christianos to get some food, we ate at a Indian restaurant, really good food.

January 2

Early up, and off to Siam Park! It is a big waterpark with a lot of slides and big pools. Actually I don't like water that much, and especially not in my face, so I was a bit skeptical. It turned out to be really fun. We were starting off at the big pool, and later on we tried some of the waterslides where you had to be on floats, both singles or pairs, and finished at the big pool again.

In the evening we went to Los Christianos, and get some dinner. We ate at a steakhouse called Taurus, and the steaks were so good.

January 3

Christian’s parents had a day off, so we went to an animal park called Loro Parque. They have a lot of animal shows, it’s incredible what animals can do. We went for a Killer whale show, Dolphin show, Sealions show and a Bird show. We ate both lunch and dinner at the park and went home about 7 pm.

January 4

Christian woke up in the middle of the night and had to throw up. We think he got a food poison, so actually we spend the most of the day at the apartment.
Or almost all day, cause we had to pick up our car at the airport. We got a almost new Citroën DS3.
When we got back home and I went to the pool to get a little tan, while Christian was sleeping.

In the evening we went to Christian’s parents restaurant to say hi, walked a little in Los Christianos and went back home to get something to eat.

January 5

Last day at Christians parents apartment.
We slept to 10.30 am, and got our stuff packed, cause we had to be at the hotel a 2 pm.
When we arrived, we got a free glass of champagne while they told us some of the exclusive thing that are included in our stay cause we have a suite.
Pictures from the suite and the hotel will come in the next post.

Everyday life

Christmas is over and we are almost off to Tenerife. I really can wait for sun, summer, pool days and sightseeing. We already have some plans for some of the days, but I hope the weather is good.

But something about this Christmas first.
In Denmark we celebrate Christmas on December 24. My parents, Christian and I woke up in the morning on the 24th, got some breakfast and then started on the Christmas dinner. We had to get the ducks in the oven, cause they have to be there for 6 hours. In the meantime we went to visit my grandpas burial, a tradition every Christmas. He died when I was 3 years old, so I don’t remember him, but it still mean a lot to me. We watch some Christmas movies and shows and in the evening my grandparents, my uncle and his girlfriend and my cousin came to celebrate Christmas. We had a lovely evening, and I got some really nice gifts.

Sif Jakobs ring: from my grandparents when I graduated.
Daniel Wellington watch: from my Parents
Sif Jakobs bracelet: from Christian.

I got a new blender with 800 watt, and I'm so happy that I got this cause my old one only have 300 watt and isn't so good.

A cookbook from ChriChri
A book about the Kardashian sisters
A calendar from Bloomingville

Calvin Klein bra and string: from my parents
I also got some make-up, some clothes, a giftcard and 2 mugs from Royal Copenhagen.

December 25 Christian went to work at the military base. My mom got a flue, so my dad and I went for a Christmas lunch with my godparents and cousins.

December 26 we went to Christmas lunch with Christian's family in Faaborg.

December 27 has been all cleaning, clotheswashing and trying to pack a bit for Tenerife.

Today, December 28 we are off to my parents in the evening and then we have to be at the airport December 29 at 10.30.

I will try to keep you guys updated from Tenerife, but I don't know how the WIFI is and have much time I will have to writing blog post. Maybe I will just make some posts with a lot of pics. Don't know, we will se what happens when we get there.

XOXO
