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.

Wednesday 30th May 2018: I ♥ ØKO.

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.
