With over 1,000 photos to sort through and edit after our trip abroad, I have vowed to catalog a hundred or so each day. Looks like a week or more of photo blogging will take up this space. If that’s just not your thing, well, just let me say if reader “stats” were something that mattered to me, I would have quit this crazy enterprise long ago.
Meanwhile, mama got a brand new camera from Greatest Husband for her recent birthday and she’s about to lay it on you.
Geographically, Denmark and Norway lie side-by-side in the North Atlantic and share an ancient Viking history. Still, they couldn’t be more different. Denmark is flat. Norway is mountainous. Their cultures are similarly diverse. What the Danes lack in dramatic landscape, they make up with food, drink, art and music.
Greatest Husband lived in the town of Aalborg for a year in the early 90’s, and we still visit friends in this ancient Danish town whenever we can.

skal! (just imagine the “a” with a small circle over it since my English keyboard won’t spell in Dansk.)
