Flatenbergs hytta, Dalarna

The area that we live in is shaped by its history of mining. The copper mine of Falun is probably the best-known one as it once produced 2/3 of Europe's copper needs and its by-products resulted in red paint for houses all over the country....

Crossing the lake by Kicksled

I remember the confusion when I heard a friend mentioning sliding across a lake on a kicksled. As a Belgian who's raised never to trust the ice, it sounded surreal. When I moved here, my only experience with ice was that handful of times that...

Dog tags

I love the natural look of my dogs without any collar or other stuff and that is how I sed to take most photographs too, but living here in the countryside up north, traveling, wandering around in the woods, there is a need for extra...

#TongueOutTuesday (25)

There isn't mich left of Mogwai when she is waiting for her ball soaking wet and dripping. Fortunately, she just has to wildly shake to get back into shape. Lizzie prefers to keep it dry. Even though that does not always work out as she would...

#TongueOutTuesday (23)

#TongueOutTuesday (22)

We've had such a delightful week. A bit of (unexpected) adventure, hanging out by the water, happy dogs and good food to celebrate.   The travel advice for Sweden remained unchanged, which means that we can leave home for a trip about 1-2 hours from home. All...

Sundays are for XL- explorations

"Just what we were looking for!" I shouted cheerfully through the store when I saw this book. It is a collection of different types of cabins here in Sweden, and despite differences in styles and accessibility, they have one thing in common: they are free....

The endless beaches of northern Denmark

Thick clouds hung heavy over the Danish countryside as we traveled north. We just escaped the hot Belgian weather (although not everyone agrees that 30 degrees is hot but I was melting) so this fresh sea breeze was more than welcome. Until our first night...
