Our Cathedral in Copenhagen

Waking in Copenhagen, I like to go inside to look where it’s possible to enter freely. Between using children and grandchildren, I take time for long walks.

A Fair in my Home Town

Placed between highways, my home town Herning is a centre for industrial and commercial fairs. Someone was kind to give me tickets for “Formland”, where retailers find the news trends and designs. For the first time in the twenty-seven years I have lived here, was I able to go and have a look. The result will appear in two blog […]
