It only took about 4 months, but I'm finally getting around to writing about our Spain trip. While in Madrid we spent our second day travelling south by train on a day trip to Toledo. It was worth the journey just for the view walking up from the station... Holy Toledo is right - the main attraction … Continue reading Holy Toledo

Phase one was going to Torvehallerne to collect … Continue reading Juleaften

The end results are exhibited in the Royal Copenhagen store in the centre of Strøget, … Continue reading Juleborde
