Welcome to The Beauty is in the Walking, a blog is driven by curiosity through any types of journeys. Whether this journey is adventurous, culinary, cultural, let it arouse our interest, shape our personality, make us grow, and enrich our vision of life and our beliefs. Let it captivate our minds and make us feel alive. Life is a progression, and it finally doesn’t matter to where we go; the most important thing is the route we take. To quote Welsh poet Gwyn Thomas: “But the beauty is in the walking—we are betrayed by destinations”.
I’m Véronique, the person behind the words, some of the photos and ideas shared here, and he is Erik, the one whose magic smile opens many of the conversations that enrich our posts, and who also takes the rest of the pictures. And our discussions, debates, laughs equally contribute to what we share in here.
We are a French-Dutch couple originally from Grenoble, a city nestled in the heart of the French Alps. Known for its stunning mountain scenery (and ski resorts), its worldwide famous walnuts, and perhaps even for a certain laid-back dress style, Grenoble is also – and more importantly – a city which is committed, resistant, dynamic, cultural and pretty when we look at it carefully. It’s our home port.
We are based in Copenhagen, Denmark. After a long trip across Asia and Oceania, we decided to settle down there to unravel the mystery of “hygge”, the Danish lifestyle. Since then, we’ve been living on a bike wearing wool socks (in both summer and winter), a plaid on the knees and a “stærk” (strong) coffee drowned in milk in one hand. We now can pride ourselves to be able to ride a bike against the wind, under the rain, eyes closed when it’s full dark at 3:30 in the afternoon. And not everyone can say the same.
Thanks for your visit, and feel free to drop us a line anywhere you want.

This blog is most of the time written in French and translated into English in order to allow our non-French speaking family, friends and you all to read our posts. However, as we are not native English speakers, it is not rigorously translated as a professional bilingual web site could be. Sorry in advance for any mistake we could make. Thank you for your understanding and we hope you will enjoy our stories and tips!
Véronique & Erik
