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!

summer-typosummer-01 summer-19 summer-17 summer-15 summer-14 summer-12 summer-11 summer-10 summer-07 summer-05 summer-06 summer-03 summer-04 summer-02this summer we had a staycation in the surroundings of stockholm when my mom and dad came to visit. we’ve been swimming like crazy. found this spot in lillsved where you could cliff jump….my dad and i took the stairs, the bear didn’t (of course).  on the way there we had a pit stop at siggesta gård and it was so lovely inside, would like to go there for christmas time when it’s cold outside and you can cozy up in front of the fireplace. consumed a few ost mackar (cheese sandwich) in the shadow of the apple trees at vintervikens trädgård, remember i wrote about their farmers market here. also visited king karl gustaf and queen silvia at their summer house. found this really cute cafe ankarudden brygge at torö where we had chocolate cake and fruit pie…so good. avocado and bread after a swim near lövhagen. will say we’ve seen our fair share of this part of sweden this year and it was oh so great. went kayaking from lövhagen on another trip…but thats for another time.

discovering our city | gröna lund

grönalund-10 grönalund-01 grönalund-02 grönalund-03 grönalund-04 grönalund-05 grönalund-07 grönalund-08 grönalund-09what a summer. feels like fall has arrived with it’s cooler air and i’m ready throwing on layers and layers. a lot of summer-trips have happened and way to little time to blog about it, but here comes some pictures from when we went to gröna lund, swedens oldest amusement parks from around 1883. took the boat from söder out there which is quit lovely. tried the eclipse which is the one on picture 4 but wasn’t my cup of tea (tried the one in copenhagens tivoli and didn’t enjoy that one either) well well tried and tried and i’m just more of a roller coaster gal.

happily ever after starts here…

wedding-01 wedding-02 wedding-03 wedding-04 wedding-05 wedding-16 wedding-17 wedding-06 wedding-07 wedding-08 wedding-10 wedding-11 wedding-12 wedding-13 wedding-14 wedding-15went to our friends wedding at this magical place called tyrolen. the day was sun filled, happy and oh so lovely.  what a beautiful way to tie the knot. tyrolen is an old folkpark build in the 60’s (clear evidence of that) but already in the 70’s the place had to close it’s doors. fast forward to 2006 where a couple of guys and a girl bought the place renovated it in the spirit of back in the days and opened this place up again for people to enjoy. want to come back next year for muskelrock or the tyrolens rythm’n’blues fest. the guy on the bike is one of the owners. a time warp in the best of ways!
