When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.

Back to school

School is starting soon and back to school things are displayed everywhere – aren’t those VW bug bags cute?
If they weren’t so ridiculously priced, I might want one too!

By the way, the WordPress reader is not working, and I’m not able to read most of the wonderful blog posts of the blogs I follow – only a few are displayed and then it claims there’s no more. Is anyone else having those problems too – or better, does anyone know how to work around the problem?


What’s in a name

I came across this fun fruity drink in Copenhagen – what a name!

It cheered me up a lot and I needed some cheers yesterday when I found my favorite website – 43Things – was down again. But hooray, it’s working again today – I went to bed yesterday with a heavy heart. It’s strange, but I feel so connected to all those kind people here and on 43T, that I feel sad when I can’t read what happened and connect.

It’s a new day, and I hope today all is better – all is well 🙂


Afternoon at the Buschenschank

What a lovely way to spend a sunny afternoon!
Resting in the half shade and enjoying the sun, drinking an elderflower water or taste the local wine – the best Sunday afternoon in a long time…


Walking on to Tivoli Gardens

As yesterday’s mail installment of “1000 Places To See Before You Die” mentioned to me, the Tivoli Gardens are marvelous.
We enjoyed our visit a lot, and the wonderful sunshine was extra welcome to us after the rain of the last days.
