A few days in Copenhagen

After seeing my family we spoiled ourselves with two days in Copenhagen. The weather was splendid and the smørrebrød as yummi as always (we ate at Cafe Sorgenfri and Kanal-cafeen). Femke sniffed out a number of design shops (and I a few bodegas). We also visited Christiania - Femke never been there before, and of course the beautiful neighbourhood of Christianshavn as well as art museum Glyptoteket.

The second day started much earlier than planned with a fire alarm and evacuation of the hotel. In the end it was nothing serious, just a chimney fire. But running barefooted in the fire stairs seven in the morning is quite a abrupt awakening I tell you.

Visiting my Mother

After the Christmas party we visited my Mother and stayed for a few days. It is nice to be home with your family and just meet, talk and hang around. One of the days we went to Helsingborg for a fika and a walk in the fresh winter weather. Another day we drove to Malmö for some shopping and Pytt i panna-lunch.

Christmas in Sweden

This year it was time to celebrate Christmas in Sweden with my family. Funny enough, there was more snow in Amsterdam than in Malmö the Christmas of 2009.
The Christmas party itself was at mys sister's place together with relatives of her husband Bo-Arne. And lots of food :-)

The last couple of days it has been snowing here in Amsterdam. And unusually, the snow is still around!

Work in Vienna

I had the pleasure to spend three days working in Vienna in mid December. Here are some photos from that trip.
