During the five years I lived in Aalborg I only missed the annually carnival once (it was the second year, where I’d forgotten all about it and had said yes to working). Although every year it was just before the deadline of big projects, we always took the day off to join the parade. By now it has become tradition that I don’t want to be without, and the more recent years where I’ve been away from Aalborg I have managed to find excuses to visit on the carnival weekend. This year the excuse was my girlfriend whom had never seen it before, nor had two friends from the office.

It is an unique event, where everyone in the city are friends for a day. The energy level is high, like the music, and the creativity can be surprising. And last but not least, there are so many good opportunities for taking photos – even of people that on any other day would run away from the camera – that I ended up at 825 files on the memory card. Here’s a few of them:

It was also, a bit unexpected to be honest, a nice experience to visit the city again. Before I moved out of the city I couldn’t wait to leave. Too small, too boring. But I do have a lot of good memories from the place, which I guess have been slipping out of my mind. And to be fair, on a nice spring/summer day, it does has it appeal (and people with less of an attitude than in Aarhus).
