Saturday 14th July 2018: stormy sky.

Let’s talk about the weather! This week, it seems that I have been especially inspired by the sky, the clouds, the sunset lights… The colors of the sky have been changing a lot above the Jura.

In between storms, I have been walking near La Givrine and Lac des Rousses.

Thursday 12th July 2018: common buzzard.

Rúdudú and I go for our daily walk in the field in front of the house. The wind in the trees and the songs of the birds are the only sounds we can hear.

This week I went on a trip to Lausanne and the tower of Sauvabelin.

In the Jura, far from the light pollution around Lake Geneva, I enjoy every night a very dark sky filled with many visible stars.

Thursday 5th July 2018: Rúdúdú in light and shadows.

This week I moved to the French Jura, near the border to Switzerland (après avoir habité Aarhus, j’habite maintenant aux Rousses). Rúdúdú and I went for a discovery walk in the surroundings to see La Dôle from the other side!

Tuesday 26th June 2018: dry stone wall in Col du Marchairuz, Switzerland.

This week, Rúdúdú and I said goodbye to our friends, neighbours, home and terrace in Aarhus. After a long drive through Germany, we arrived to Switzerland through the Franches-Montagnes!

In our temporary home, Rúdúdú integrated immediately with the other cats (at least these silent ones).

Another road trip brought us to Vallorbe, Lac de Joux and Col du Marchairuz.

Friday 8th June 2018: Nuphar lutea on Brabrand Sø.

This week has been hot, very hot!

And I’ve been busy paddling. Thanks to my landlords, I went kayaking three times, on the sea Kattegat, on the river Aarhus, and on Brabrand Lake.

I also paid a visit to the friendly goats at Sondrup Gårdmejeri, an organic farm producing goat cheese 40 km south of Aarhus.

Here are my two amazing working places: the colorful market at Ingerslevs Boulevard, where I sell my handicraft broddgöltur, and the sunny terrace in front of my house, where I create my items!

Et pour donner suite au chapitre 26, voici les taillés aux grever!

Thursday 24th May 2018: blackbird.

A tour in Godsbanen, an inspiring neighbourhood.

Et la surprise de la semaine, spéciale dédicace pour les Vaudois: en récoltant de la nourriture, j’ai trouvé des greubons! En danois, ils s’appellent grever. Grever/greubons, ça ne s’invente pas! Même dans le canton de Vaud, je ne saurais pas où trouver des greubons, et voilà que je tombe dessus dans une poubelle au Danemark…

Saturday 7th April 2018: Mount Møllehøj, the highest mountain of Denmark!

Sometimes people ask me why I stay in Denmark, what I like here. I think now I have an answer: even with my difficulties to walk, I can hike the three highest summits of the country in 30 minutes, including time for photos. It makes me feel powerful! 😉

Friday 23rd March 2018: Vallgraven, Gothenburg, Sweden.

This week I met Anton the batdog. Then I moved from Denmark to Sweden. Rúdúdú stays the coolest cat when it comes to take a ferry! But in the forest around our Swedish cottage, I’m afraid he went hunting for the very first time 😕. In the surroundings: Älvsåker church and Gothenburg.
