For me, the biggest must on our Copenhagen trip was to visit Louisiana. This art museum was one of my favorites growing up and I was longing to go back and see it again. After a 45 min train ride from Copenhagen Central Station and a short walk you are met by a very anonymous facade. It feels almost like you are entering into a private residence. But as soon as you pass the reception the building opens up and you have a grand view of the museums garden and the ocean. This is one of the things i love about Louisiana, it is almost like visiting an eccentric and insanely rich aunt who has turned her house and garden into an art exhibit. Read More
This is part II of our trip to Copenhagen, where I tell you a little bit more about what to do outside of the immediate city center, if you haven’t read part I you can find it here.
Being beer lovers, a visit to the Carlsberg brewery was a must for this trip. And although I rarely drink Carlsberg or Tuborg I’m surprised to say that I really enjoyed it. The visiting center is located in the old Carlsberg brewery in Vesterbro where they offer guided tours, beer tastings, a free horse carriage ride and they house the worlds largest collection of unopened beer bottles. On the grounds there is also the Jacobsen house brewery where you can see the beer being brewed and bottled. Read More

I’m sitting here writing this from my* Swedish summerhouse, with no Internet connection. It’s not exactly a summerhouse, it’s a garden house in “our” allotment garden. But it is Swedish, yes most definitely! It’s a mustardish yellow with white trim and the garden is full of apple trees and lavender. Aaah, can you feel the smell? It’s Swedish summer! Read More
I recently quit my job, put my home in storage and packed my bags. All for the purpose of moving to Russia. Correction, all for the purpose to move with the man I love around the planet, wherever his job may take us. And for the moment that means Russia. Read More
During my preparations for moving with my hubbie I found myself going back to the Essentials issue of Kinfolk. Which might partly be due to it lying in the bathroom; a good read while on the toilet is not to be underestimated. Although mostly it was because of the theme: determining what you simply can’t live without. I’ve been drawn towards minimalism for a long time now, but this was something new. In our age of over-consumption and having everything so readily available, the key for me was to find what was essential. Read More
