    I had to cansel my trip to London, due to an visit to the hospital for a bypass surgery–but hopefully I shall be able to travel another time, when I feel strong. London has so much to offer

  4. Hi. I just came across your blog and think what you are doing is a fantastic idea! I’m from London and my boyfriend is from Copenhagen and we are currently having a long distance relationship. When he visits I love taking him to exhibitions and events that I think that he will enjoy in London and he likes to do the same when I’m over in Copenhagen. Keep up the good work:)
