In a quiet spot in Seattle, a place called Ballard is a new Nordic Museum. Immigrants from the Nordic countries flocked to that place at the beginning of the twenties century. I felt at home walking in the streets and visiting a Danish ex-pat family. Excerpt from Wikipedia on Ballard: Historically Ballard is the traditional center of Seattle’s ethnically Scandinavian seafaring […]
Today, I continue with more pictures from a trip in July 2018 at Udvar-Hazy Center at 14390 Air and Space Museum Parkway, Chantilly, Virginia 20151 adjacent to the Dulles Airport. On my first post on this subject, the photos were from WWI and WWII. For more info of the museum, here is the link. My husband Henry has warm feelings […]
Due to many photos from the museum, this is part one of two of this post. The Smithsonian Institute has two Air and Space museums. They are 40 minutes’ drive apart from each other. In a post, I referred to the one from The National Mall in Washington, D.C. This time, I would like to share pictures from the sister […]
Ryvangen Mindelund A short follow up from the last two posts for the memory of our lost young resistance members in Denmark who helped us to save face and become part of the Western Allies. My husband Henry and I went to Copenhagen this past D-Day weekend. This new granite memorial has been erected at the cemetery commemorating the many […]
Not being able to travel abroad, I enjoy the photos from travels. Last time in Washington, D.C., my husband went to the National Air and Space Museum. In contrast, I explored the National Archives Museum at Pennsylvania Avenue opposite the Navy Memorial and the close the National Gallery of Art at the National Mall. I would like to go back […]
Two weeks ago I wrote a little about the young Danish Freedom Fighter Kim Malthe-Brun. The book that inspired me wasn’t easy to translate as it consisted of letters and diaries from the last three years of his life. I keep material in a basket that I use for blogging, and soon after the post was released, I found an […]
I wonder what other threat could take away our rights to assemble in the future? What about asking questions on why small and more significant businesses had to close down? Why are the warning signs about the COVID-19 so alike all over the place? Why were healthy people in some countries forced to stay inside and be deprived of sunshine and fresh air? Why is a cheap and unpatented cure suppressed in the media and by Big Pharma?
Kim Malthe-Brun was executed a month before the liberation of Denmark. Today, 80 years after we in Denmark celebrate the end of the German occupation. He was only 21 years old when he died. As a sailor he helped transport weapon and people illegally to Sweden. He wrote farewell letters to his mother and his girlfriend where he asked them […]
The last day of our trip to some of the Eastern states of the USA in July 2018. With our newly found family in Virginia, we visited the city of Fairfax Historic District. During the Civil War, The County Courthouse changed hands between the Confederates and the Union forces. Memorial plates for those lost in wars from the Civil […]
Not being able to travel now, it's good to have access to photos of places of interest from another year.
