Last week I was fortunate enough to visit my dear friend Kajsa at home in Sweden. I was surprised at the airport by our other best friend, Christy, and so began our Scandinavian adventure. I can’t thank Kajsa and her family enough for this trip – it is already a precious memory.
‘Peder Oxe’ is the name of the restaurant where we had lunch in Copenhagen. Above is an artist’s rendering of the eatery, printed on post cards and business cards.
I loved the interior design of the restaurant and the food was yummy-yummay.

On our way back down at the ‘Kyssebœnken’ aka ‘Kissing Booth’.
Above is the oldest recovered viking vessel (I think…).
At Ale Stenar – that’s Ale’s Stones in Inglés – it’s an ancient time-telling monument.
This was a delicious orange cake Kajsa’s mother, Anna Maria, made.
Kajsa took us to Lund, which was a picture-perfect place full of students, cyclists and wanderers.
Kulturen – an open-air museum where old buildings of various periods and architectures are showcased.
Kajsa en route to a Viking burial site.
Above is the view from the top of the mound.
Kajsa says there is one Viking buried under there.
The Swedes have a delightful tradition called ‘fika’, which is essentially their excuse for having cakes throughout the day. Before I left, Kajsa’s father, Alf, introduced me to this bun filled with creme – mmm mmm, good.
