Last week I headed up to Denmark with my Godmother, a road-trip that was filled with gorgeous scenery, culture, grey skies and a lot of sneezing on my part. And sadly the weather wasn’t on it’s best behaviour and decided to give us autumn instead of summer –  lots of rain and gusty winds.

But my Godmother and I made the best of our “Fahrt ins Blaue” (trip into the blue) and even ended up in Malmö, Sweden, for a night as Copenhagen was all booked up! And of course I had my camera with me, and even though the weather didn’t provide the best light I did take a few snaps of our road-trip around Sweden.

the lovely B&B we stayed in Sonnerupgaard, near Roskilde. It is an old Estate in the middle of wheat fields.
