    Hej Birgitte,

    I’ve spent alot of time in Copenhagen and it was great to see your picture of the Pølsevogn. I’ve often thought it would be alot of fun to import one to the UK.

    Any chance of a post on Kristiania bikes? They’re so cool and I’ve only ever seen one here.

    I shall click the follow button after writing this so I can stay I touch with what’s going on in Dk.

    Lovely blog!

    Best wishes

      Hi Finn.
      Thank you for your nice comment. I understand your idea about importing a Pølsevogn, that could be fun for you, perhaps also a risk of having too many though. 🙂 Recently a Pølsevogn was send to Australia because the crown prins family went there, ,so who knows if there will arrive one in your Country too, one day. If you´re not importing one yourself.
      I´ll see if I can find a photo of that bike.
      Kind regards

    What will the good people of Denmark think about SpikeBoarding™

    • March 13, 2012 3:05 pm

      It sure looks like great fun. I haven´t heard about SpikeBoarding before, so you´ll probably be the first to find out how people will react. 🙂
      Not long ago, this news was on front: ” A 4,600 sqm skate park in Fælledparken (a Copenhagen park) set to be the biggest and best of its kind in Northern Europe”

    We hope to visit the entire country soon 🙂

      Finn, I am really happy that you like the blog, it is a good motivator for me to know. I understand that you have been living in Copenhagen for a while – your name is common in Denmark, – Danish roots perhaps? Thank you very much for the award, that was very kind of you. I think I´ll prefer to wait a little with following the requests, if you don´t mind, this blog is still very new. 🙂

        Hello Birgitte,

        I didn’t live in Copenhagen,but I have been there many times to visit friends and family, I am half Danish, my mother is from Svendborg. Regarding the award, I don’t mind at all, I just wanted to show appreciation for all your lovely, evocative images.

        Best wishes

        Oh, Birgitte, I really hope that we will visit Denmark some day, and perhaps even meet you and Truels. That would be quite amazing. 🙂

    Birgitte, what a great idea and so well done!

    How about a post on Danish hygge?

    • April 23, 2012 11:56 pm

      Thank you. 🙂
      Good idea about the “hygge” subject, I´l think of how I can illustrate that feeling.

    Hi, Birgitte! Thanks so much for visiting and following my blog. I just finished reading Carsten Jensen’s “We, the Drowned,” and I’m totally obsessing about all things Denmark. 🙂
