Iceland

Our first trip to Iceland as a new family, was when D was six months old. It was my first trip to Iceland too and it was totally overwhelming. I was not prepared for the nature on Iceland. It is magnificent, primordial and completely mesmerizing. I really get it now, why so many artists find inspiration on Iceland. Driving from the airport Keflavik felt like driving on the moon. We  passed through giant petrified lava landscapes as far as the eye could see. And mountains, volcanos and gushing geysirs everywhere […]

Valby, Copenhagen

D had the day of from kindergarten today. And we used the day to go on a little outing to one of my favorite neighboorhoods in Copenhagen. We took the train to Valby. An relatively quiet area of Copenhagen. But with many small shops and coffee houses with outdoor service. Especially around the main shopping street Valby Langgade. It is definitly worth exploring the small sidestreets along Valby Langgade also. Where you can find really old houses dating back to the 18th century. One example is the public library in […]

Not just symbolic legal equality, but real equality. In a way I wish that gender did not matter. That it was obselete. A non […]

Living with a Four year old

My son is a very active strong willed child. He loves to hug people and is totally fearless. He loves cars, everything with wheels on it really, noisy toys, trains, lego and dolls,teddy bears, kitchen and food stuff, singing and drawing and painting. not to mention jumping on the furniture, bicycling and running (away). One of his favorite outings is to the zoo. It can be exhausting to keep up with the pace of a four year old. It involves a lot of coffee and deep breaths and silent counting […]

May I present our cat, Chuck Norris

This is our cat, Chuck Norris. Named after another redhead. He is one year old. The first 7 months of his life he lived with an old lady in the suburbs.

He loves to play with D in the morning. Is always hungry and not shy. When he wants […]

Postcard from the Beach 

We Woke up this morning to the sound of birds chirping, a blue blue sky and a happy sun shining away.  Thus motivated to go outside, we packed up the car and drove 40 minutes to a great little beachtown called Karrebæksminde in southwest off Seeland. The sand was warm and white. And we spent 4 happy hours there building sandcastles, eating giant icecreams and playing in the sea. Pure bliss. There is just something magical about being on the beach. The sound off the waves chrashing is so calming. […]
