Just to show you some historical buildings in Copenhagen which are still used by the military. The paths on the ramparts are ideal for walks and running exercise, and you get a view over the harbour and the area of the Little Mermaid. I have made posts before on this subject but in fine weather, the atmosphere and architecture inspire […]
I admire artists who were able to combine their art with a creative beautiful home.

My last post was about the area in Aarhus that once was one of the barracks in Aarhus. Now a centre for culture, concerts and art exhibitions. ARoS is a spectacular building with a glass roof ring, a piece of art by Danish/ Icelandish Olafur Elisson. Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775-1851) was far ahead of his time. I can’t believe […]
Aarhus is the second-largest city in Denmark and only one hour’s drive from us. Whenever we go there, my husband is reminded of his time as a soldier in his youth. Standing on his post in front of the clock on the City Hall, time was put on a standstill, especially during the hours before dawn.

He took a picture of me at the site of the pig sculpture. I remember I found it a bit ridiculous. It’s strange how some things get stuck into your memory forever.
In the last part of the nineteenth century, the Danish Skagen painters got their inspiration from the light and the seas of Skagen, the most Northern part of Denmark. On a windy and cloudy morning, I walked along the beaches where they found many of their motives.
The most northern part of Denmark is called Skagen. It used to be a special place for painters because of the light from the sky. Two seas meet at the very top and add to the unique atmosphere. Skagen is a tourist magnet at certain times of the year. We visited for a half marathon arranged to attract visitors to this […]
I would have loved to have heard the story of this heroic personnel. All my life the WWII have had my interest. Recently I became conscious that the architecture is unique.

Years ago, my interest in WWII and my love for Copenhagen, our Danish capital, brought me in contact with the artist Simon Bang. At the time, I didn’t know that Simon Bang was a painter as we corresponded about historical subjects on a Facebook group on old black and white photos from our capital. Later on, I found his works illustrated on […]
Covid laws separate families on purpose? The NSW and QLD urban border closure is causing separation of families. The only way they can see each other in person is by leaning over the plastic barricade and hugging… How much longer do Australians need to suffer? Open the state borders! pic.twitter.com/WDkMUxrBsS — Evelyn Rae (@_evelynrae) August 28, 2021 This reminds me […]
