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!

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.

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.

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.

discovering our city | rosendals trädgård

rosendal-garden-01 rosedahl-garden-07 rosedahl-garden-02 rosedahl-garden-08 rosedahl-garden-03 rosedahl-garden-04 rosedahl-garden-05 rosedahl-garden-06rosendals trädgård is this open garden where they grow bio veggies and fruit. during summer they have a farmers market (we bought cavolo nero…haven’t been able to find it anywhere). when we were there they made pizzas in their wood oven and they looked fantastic. they have made a cafe and a bakery inside the greenhouses, but we brought own fika and enjoyed that under the apple trees. i want to go there when it’s christmas time (which is soon?!) and drink a glass of glögg and eat swedish pepparkakor.
