Aged just 14 H. C. Andersen moved to Copenhagen in pursuit of a dream. He dreamt of becoming an actor, but as his voice changed with age he found himself instead writing fairytales, and thank god he did!
He’s a Danish treasure and Copenhagen is full of references to this amazing writer of fairytales, but one can only imagine the emotions behind the creative journey he embarked on in Copenhagen, until now.
StoryHunt’s ‘Vejen til drømmene’ (The Road To Dreams) experience can be downloaded for 99 DKK and it takes the listener into the psyche of this great writer as the listener walk through the beautiful Frederiksberg Garden.
You can really get to know the author again and again as the app guides you around the garden as the persona of his older self guides his younger self. You meet Andersen as he’s just disembarked from a mail van, full of dreams, aspiration, and nervous energy.
The StoryHunt app usually allows people to download things in Danish and English, but you can read more about it on the website.
