Antiquarian Book Fair in Copenhagen

Hello, all! Erin, here. ❤

We hope you had a beautiful Thanksgiving holiday. It was nice and calm for us. We will be having our dinner with other exchange students tomorrow. As for today, we visited Copenhagen to see one of the largest antiquarian book fairs with international sellers, book binders, and conservators. It was fantastic! So many gorgeous books from different countries dating back to several centuries ago…Mike and I were hypnotized and we kept envisioning our library we want to put together! There's something about a book on science or religion from centuries ago…it's similar to the affects that archaeological sites and artifacts have on me. I go into this trance and I feel an indescribable connection to the past creators and users. It's nerdy, I know. Everyone gets their kicks in their own ways! 🙂

Here are a few of the pictures from the fair. You can view the entire gallery by clicking this link.

The fair was held at Rundetårn (The Round Tower), which is a combined church, library and observatory built in 1642. We climbed all the way to the top to find a breathtaking view of Copenhagen and a freezing wind that has a mind of its own…an abusive one, at that. We soaked in the stunning views of the city and went back inside before my body temperature dropped to a painful low.

Copenhagen was great! We plan on going back a couple more times before we leave. We miss you all! ❤ 🙂

    Wonderful Photographs. Next time you go you should tie ropes around you’re waists, so someone can pull you out..i case of lingering, trance-like state. Would hate to lose you in there!
