A B O U T

Welcome to A DUSTY OLIVE GREEN!

My name is Birgitte, I am Danish, from Copenhagen, but I have lived abroad most of my life, since I was 19 years old. I have worked seven years at the Danish Embassy in Rome but today I call myself a photographer, translator, blogger, mum and city explorer.

I am madly in love with Rome, which has been my home for more than 10 years, but right now I live in Florence, which isn't so bad either.

A DUSTY OLIVE GREEN is a blog on photography and travel, but not only. It's the world of a Copenhagener living in Florence, where she wanders the streets with a camera around her neck and a little girl in a stroller.

I'm addicted to coffee, Instagram and my Mac. I love the sea, September in Rome and the smell of summer rain. I have been a vegetarian since I was 12 years old and I'm a firm believer in optimism and simple living.

I am probably more in love with places than most other people are. I think that the importance of cities and the bounds we have to them are highly underestimated. I believe that every city has its own soul, independently of who is living in it, and I know for sure that you can fall in love (really in love) with a city. I have.

A DUSTY OLIVE GREEN is where I share my latest photos and sometimes a few words. A DUSTY OLIVE GREEN is where I post pics from and words about favorite places in favorite cities.

My city guides are divided into categories and neighborhoods. I try my best to keep all of them up to date and I always delete old posts about places which no longer exists. That said it is impossible for me to stay informed about all the places I have written about. If you find information on my blog which is no longer up to date feel free to let me know in an e-mail or leave a comment on the relevant blog post.

I am always open to new collaborations. Click HERE for more info.
