Tosca Kage

 

 

Growing up this was a favorite for Sunday coffee in the winter.  Coffee and cake is a traditional aspect of hygge, the Danish concept of living beautifully.  As kids we had hot cocoa with real whipped cream instead of coffee.

If you go to Rome, don’t buy water. You won’t need to. All you need is a water bottle, no matter how hot it is or how much water you drink. That is because fresh spring drinking water is free and plentiful all over Rome, no matter where you are. Hear that Detroit? It’s...

More pictures from the Appia Antica. I really can’t recommend this as part of a roman itinerary enough. Go on a Sunday when there are less cars. The Appia Antica is after all still a road used today. From Trastavere take the 3b bus to the Piramide and from there get on...

The Giardini degli'Arancia is one of the most beautiful spots in Rome.  Sitting atop the a hill in Testaccio, the garden is a popular place for lovers and wedding photos.  Next to the Garden is one of my favorite churches, Santa Sabina.  Built on top of the ruins of...

After dropping off my stuff at the apartment I needed to get a few things for the next day! The absolute top order of priority was a visit to the art supply store since I didn’t bring any medium with me on the plane. I’m a few blocks from a great little store…I want to...

Flying over to Northern Europe this time of year means that even on a night flight it never gets fully dark. I took the first image at 2:00 am off Greenland. When I was a little girl and going to visit the grandparents I loved to stay up and watch the sunrise on this f...
