Veninder


This is a pretty common sight. Two girlfriends (veninder in Danish) enjoying a Sunday stroll along the lakes; on their way to brunch maybe. There's plenty of reasons why the girl on the left doesn't have her bike with her. It could be at the workshop, or she could have left it last night's party, or she might just have preferred to take a walk instead.

what the meaning of veninder??

Thanks for the comments! Raquel, Veninde is Danish for girlfriend, as in female friend. Veninder is the plural.

While I'm here, sorry for the slow-down in posts at the moment. With Mikael off sunning himself in Egypt, I'm doing my best to keep the pics coming but work is kind of getting in the way at the moment! But bear with us, there'll be more pics soon. :)

Do you mean lesbian?? In this case (these girls) lesbian chic !!!

Heh, no, not lesbians. A "veninde" just means a friend of the female sex. A "ven" is a friend of the male sex. Incidently is my favorite Danish word "kæreste" (directly translated: dearest) which can mean either boyfriend or girlfriend (as in significant other). I like it simply because "dearest" is a lovely term for the person you love but also because the word isn't gender specific - the same as love.
