We spend late summer in Tisvildeleje in north of Zealand. It was filled with wild blueberries, skinny dipping, fireplace and a glass of champagne every day. Needless to say we had a blast. Since we came late in the season we almost had this little summer town for ourselves. Lots and lots of long walks, a lunch at Helenekilde, coffees in town at Den Røde Tomat who also happened to make a really good pizza and a cinema where you could bring your cup of coffee into the cinema hall and they would run to the bakery after fresh croissants if you fancied that…my oh my, my favorite place to be this summer. Great to stay in Denmark where the summer is beyond. Best choice ever!

 

Botanical garden | Copenhagen

Have a thing for botanical gardens. The oh so pretty palm houses where the air is damp and filled with palms and other tropical and subtropical plants and the lovely garden of course. If one day I get a (for now a dream) summerhouse I want to build a greenhouse out of old windows like this and have a green roof of succulents….and that will be my own botanical garden garden. When living in NYC I often went to Brooklyn Botanic Garden and I love this place. The japanese garden is oh so lovely.

When escaping from NYC our get-a-way was this lovely bed & breakfast The Clark House in Palenville 2 hours drive from NYC. The little shop Circle W Market I wrote about here was next door…very convenient. Stayed here a couple of times and had such a fantastic stay. Michael and Christine are the hosts and they are the best. Michael made this amazing breakfast for us…cream cheese omelet I have copied many times after….sooooo gooood! Had a picnic in their huge garden I took a picture of here. Love this place!

Another road-trip when living in LA. Our climber friends who I wrote about here came on another visit and we went with them to Red Rock outside Las Vegas to climb. It’s so crazy beautiful out here. On our way home we went through Las Vegas. It’s such a contrast to the nature out there. Always fun to see the craziness of Las Vegas. Very fascinating but I always have the feeling of staying in the car just looking passing through.

New year in Copenhagen

Was so lucky we could borrow our friends apartment with fire stove…not so common in Copenhagen, you see it more here in Stockholm. Had a great breakfast at Dyrehaven cheap (compared to Sthlm prices) and filling. The avocado open faced is so good. Random prictures from Kødbyen. Testing ginger sodas from Kihoskh. Ebeltoft Gårdbryggeri was definitely the winner.

When living in LA we had our friends who are crazy climbers visiting. Went with them to Yosemite and did some bouldering. My first time climbing and how fun it was. It is so beautiful in Yosemite. Forgot the tent so slept outside on the crash-pads almost next to the sign, bear warning….?! Yep that’s how we role.

FLASHBACK FRIDAY

When we were living in LA we took a trip to San Francisco for my birthday…..what a looker this city is. Would love to come back and spend more time here. This was during my 2 years as vegan hence the vegan hotdog place. Those hotdogs from Underdog were so good we had to order another round. We took highway 1 from LA and it’s such a scenic route, takes way longer but can recommend it. Here are a few favorit spots of mine:
