Happy Hangover

Visiting family who voted

Someone wrote on farcebook how their in laws had voted for Brexit and clearly did the “we just wanted the foreigners and Muslims out, we didn’t mean you” bit. They talked about how hard it was for them to be… Continue reading →

No dinner

Mountain to climb

An English Dane

What, what? The Danish government has now enabled the possibility for dual citizenship. And since my wee “look see” over here is going into its 20+ year, I think it might benefit me and to some extent Peli :) if… Continue reading →
