Something magic about Denmark

28 Aug

Oh, yes, we had promised to write regularly… And then… You see, we left the bright sun of Provence and set our course for Denmark.

We are not really “free” yet, because we are here for Thomas’ last assignment, and also for his therapist training. But even like that, it’s a treat to be here. There is a little bit of magic to Denmark.

Already when we approached the German coast to take the ferry, we started to have this “Denmark feeling”. On the boat, there was a clear blue sky above the Northern Sea and a fresh wind was messing up the passengers’ hair.

We arrived at our friends Ulla and John’s home in the countryside, on the island of Lolland, just on time for an afternoon coffee in the garden. We could feel the very light Scandinavian sun caressing our skins. Everything was so peaceful.

Ulla is a an amazing cook, extremely creative and cosmopolite in her way to set a menu and invent recipes. Later in the evening, we enjoyed a delicious dinner. There was a veal stew with chanterelles and then the dessert. Ah, the dessert… It was a sort of trifle with cream, berries, almond paste…  A real explosion of sugary flavours served with a sweet white wine.

Our minds had slowed down quite a lot already as we took an evening walk through the countryside around the house. Even quite late, the skies were still not dark and the full moon stood bright above the lake and its water lilies…

A feeling of completeness enveloped us.
