Ein Gedi – A lung in the desert

By now, you’ve probably figured out that, whilst I’m a city dweller, I love sightseeing in nature! Our trip to the Dead Sea region was no exception. After taking a dip in the Dead Sea, we went on to the national park Ein Gedi. Being a bit tired and not wanting to get overheated in the sun I wasn’t overly excited to go here. But it felt a shame to miss now that we were in the region. And I’m so glad we didn’t miss it! Read More

Moving to the Middle East

Ah, it feels good to be back on the blog! Sorry for being all “Quiet on the Western Front” the past month. It is partly due to the fact I just moved to the “Eastern front”, more precisely Tel Aviv, Israel. Maybe not the obvious choice for a Swede, as it is smack, bang in the middle of the Middle East*. But hey, when opportunity comes knocking…

It has been very exciting and I didn’t really know what to expect. Luckily B. picked me up at the airport and swept me off my feet my very first day here. And what a treat I was in for, I thought you might want to tag along! Read More

Inside Copenhagen – part III

We have arrived at the third and final part of our trip to Copenhagen. You can find part I and part II right here.

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

Inside Copenhagen – part II

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

The essentials

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
