Helnaes is a well-kept pearl of nature connected to Funen, Denmark, with cohesiveness among the inhabitants.
Exploring our countryside has a healing effect
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.
While my husband and I are on a trip to San Fransico, Portland and Seattle, I would like like to share some Danish sightseeing. Norwegians make fun of us for having such a flat country. They are not right in that as we have several places with heights and hills. In return, we make fun of them for being […]
A new app called “Vild Mad” is made by a Noma chef helping children to be able to collect things to be used for eating as spices or more integrated in dishes. Adults could learn a lot too. I know a bit and collect wild berries when I can find them or as for this post I would like […]
#2 in a series on tour in Sweden in May 2017 In Sweden, many houses are still made of wood and are seen everywhere in the landscape. Homes in different colours often with white framing.

I forgot to make a photo of that, but it was good. A Danish traditional dessert.
