Sustainable Weekend Getaway

Since I am a full-time student and have a part-time job during the week, I like to unwind, practice my hobbies and try out new things on the weekend. As a girl on a budget, I have to get creative with my ideas when it comes to holidays and weekend trips.

This week boyfriend and I spontaneously decided to borrow a tent from a dear friend, take our bikes and ride to the next camping spot just outside of Aarhus. 

We found our perfect spot just up the hill, under an old oak tree next to a bench with a perfect view of the ocean. Magical!

We put up our tent (my first time ever putting up a tent by myself) and put all the snacks inside before we went down to the beach with homemade popcorn, gin and without our phones.

Without any recollection of time, we sat in front of our tent, looking at the stars that we are usually too busy to notice and chatted the night away.

We woke up with to the sun coming through the trees and after a quick snuggle and a barefoot walk outside, we decided it was time for some delicious breakfast.

Completely Zero Waste of course (butter wrapper is recyclable).

We stayed for a few more hours that went by faster than I had expected and then we packed up our tent, got on our bikes and went about the rest of our days……

…..leaving no trace.

    It looks like you had a wonderful time, and I love that it was a no trace trip 😉 I’d like to do something similar, but I feel like there is no beautiful camping spots near me, but I guess I’d have to do my research!

    Lovely post, just what i needed to see before next week adventures. Going on a short birthday getaway to Wales, my friends are slightly less Eco friendly, so i will have to prepare in advance. :))
    Thanks for inspiration, glad i came across your blog. x
