{ fika }

By Brit

Fika is a social institution in Sweden; it means having a break, most often a coffee break, with friends usually accompanied by something sweet. Swedes consider having a coffee an important part of the culture. Traditionally, fika requires sweet, baked goods, especially cinnamon rolls. The word “fika” can serve as both a verb and a noun. The picture shows some fika places in København and Malmö. Have a hygge fika this weekend !

{ hygge coffee moments }

By Brit

I am back from my Christmas getaway to Copenhagen,  a great city with such a magical Christmas spirit glowing with warm light in the dull weather. I had  wonderful coffee moments in some of the cities most coziest cafés and discovered a lot of great design stores. I will add them soon to my ‘city guide’ section at the left side of my blog. In the meantime I would like to share these three cute coffee places where I spent some hygge moments. ‘Sweet Treat’ and ‘Fisk’ are quite local while ‘The Royal Café’ is a very touristy spot on Europe’s longest pedestrian area ‘Strøget’ but nevertheless a lovely place. Enjoy a little insight of this wonderful city !

{ oldest general store }

By Brit

During my roadtrip to New England, I went to a lot of general and country stores, amongst others to Gray’s in Adamsville, Rhode Island. Built in 1788 by Samuel Church, Gray’s is purportedly the oldest continuously operating general store in the country and is home to the town’s first post office, founded in 1804.

Maine’s Southern coast

Enjoying the late summer amber sun after a fall like summer in France with long walks on the dazzling white sandy beach. Lighthouses dot the shore, buoys embellish the Maine landscape on houses, seagulls are floating over our heads and the salty smell of the ocean makes me so happy. Delicious ice creams and eating lobster rolls in a comfy lobster shack are only a few yummy delights and so quintessentially Maine.

From Connecticut’s historic coastline to rural Farm Coast, Rhode Island

We left the bustle of the city behind us and started our roadtrip at the coastline of Connecticut to finally dive into Farm Coast, a picturesque rural area of villages and farms with views of stone-fenced pastures, salt marshes, church steeples, harbors, and fields that reflect the rural quality of 19th century New England. We visited the Historic Tiverton Four Corners, a lovely and quaint three-hundred year old cross-roads village.
