OK, so I'll admit my main motivation for getting back on the blog yesterday was so I could post a million pictures of the Danish royals and a whole lot of resplendent horses today...

The good news is that Copenhagen is very, very beautiful when all the leaves are … Continue reading Efterår
It's been a pretty busy round our place these last few weeks, mainly because we were both desperately trying to pass our Module 2 Danish language test.

Module 3 apparently represents a real step up in … Continue reading En dejlig tur gennem byen og kanalerne
