HoH/Deaf Accessibility of the Danish Royal Palaces

So now that I have talked about all of the Royal Palaces in Denmark, I must talk about this. What really struck me about the Royal Palaces, and perhaps this is a reflection of Danish culture, is just how HoH and Deaf-Friendly they were. Yes, the palaces echoed, but unlike MANY, MANY places that I… Continue reading HoH/Deaf Accessibility of the Danish Royal Palaces


Christianborg Palace, Copenhagen

Another Royal Palace, where the Royal Family lived for a period of time. It is currently the seat of the Danish Parliament, the Danis Prime Minister’s Offices, and the Supreme Courts.

Saint John the Baptist was an important… Continue reading Sankt Hans Aften

It reminds me of a farm-house kitchen in the middle of the countryside, yet it is actually located in the city of Copenhagen.

COVID-19 brings challenges for Hard of Hearing Individuals

As you can see, I have avoided any mention of COVID-19 here in the last several months since the situation has begun developing. Based on the things that I was seeing, people were overwhelmed with all the misinformation, fear, frustration, and anger. It was too chaotic, too uncertain a time to have a conversation about… Continue reading COVID-19 brings challenges for Hard of Hearing Individuals


Black Diamond

This is the extension of the Royal Danish Library, and it is a good place to stop by to at least admire. You can sit down on the steps outside, by the canal to take in a moment and enjoy the city. Or you could go inside. While not all parts of the library are… Continue reading Black Diamond


Rundetaarn, Copenhagen
