Three years ago, my husband and I went to California to meet with a blogging friend and her family. It was a precious moment as Paula has Danish roots and in her eighties.

The way this square mile is governed is far beyond […]

As so often, looking back at a place, I would love to go back and see all the things I missed and only found out the existence of long after. One of the […]

This summer of 2019, we met with his third cousin, who lives there as a winemaker. We felt at home wherever we went, and the knowledge of many Scandinavian people had had an impact on both […]
