This week SAS, our Scandinavian Airlines had a scandalous reception on a commercial video. They claimed that nothing special originates from Scandinavia. I disagree, Linné is irreplaceable.
I saved a few photos for now regarding last week’s post on the new Metro Circle line in Copenhagen. Copenhagen Townhall Square is a special place for me as my grandparents met there in secrecy a hundred years ago. The Dragon Fountain still needs to be renovated to its former glory so I will wait to bring pictures of that part […]
For me, it is a dream come through to get this circular Metro Line in Copenhagen. I used to go by bicycle when I lived in Copenhagen as a young person. Now I live in another part of Denmark and enjoy to be able to get around very quickly.

It’s one of the four Royal Parks in London in a long line through the centre of the city. I have noticed to look for it at the Italian Gardens in the […]
Battle of Britain Monument at Victoria Embankment in London The Battle of Britain took place from 10th July -31st October 1940. The outcome of WWII would have turned out differently had the Germans won.

At Liverpool Street Station in London in central London is a war memorial for the 10.000 Jewish children who had to flee to England during the year before WWII broke out.
