I would totally have missed my train for this

I’m a sucker for flash mobs and symphony orchestras and Ravel’s Bolero, all of which makes it extra lame that I missed this performance in my own backyard last spring. Friends and family members who have visited me in Sweden will recognize Copenhagen‘s Central Train Station. Enjoy. Related articles Copenhagen Philharmonic Flash Mob (VIDEO): Symphony …

Remind me to never have an illicit affair…

Because today I sent a text message to the wrong person. Not once…but twice. Like most of the texting I do, the message was perfectly innocuous. I was getting ready to meet up with a couple of American pals for coffee, and instead of asking *them* where they were, I asked the Alpha Geek. The …

Dr. Darling, Ph.D Postal Carrier

My chronically over-qualified Swede has finally found an employer willing to ignore her education…though she had to go to Denmark in order to do it. Starting July 30th she will be gainfully employed at a company that delivers business-to-business and direct mail marketing material in Copenhagen…by bike. Not exactly the best use of her advanced degree …

Let’s Ride!

Fortunately my brother's ability to cover a coastline in fog does not seem to extend to Denmark. We cycled all over Copenhagen under sunny skies on Thursday before meeting some friends for dinner.  We all initially felt guilty about ordering hamburgers at the pub my Copenhagen pals chose for the meal…but they turned out to …
