Scandinavian Pain and Ragnar Kjartansson at the Barbican Centre London

by Scandinavian mum

My husband shared excitingly that he had seen a new exhibition on at the Barbican centre called ‘Scandinavian Pain’. I had to tell him that this was in fact not the sign for the exhibition, but part of it, as installation art. The Icelandic artist Ragnar Kjartansson’s new exhibition at the Barbican is set to surprise and intrigue you!

It’s been too long!

by Scandinavian mum

Trying not to mention the hottest subject over the last week that we all are slowly growing tired of I have to admit that we had our return journey from our Easter Holiday in Norway unexpectedly changed from a simple 2 hours flight into traveling through Northern Europe by car, boat and train, staying at various of places whilst waiting for Euro Star to have 4 seats available for the last leg of our journey…

It’s amazing how rural Scandinavia suddenly is when there is no flights. But what an adventure at the same time when you have to travel more than 1200 miles through Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium and France in order to get back home.

Picture to the left is shot by Amélie, of her new souvenir from Brussels. Looking very happy to finally be on the train, going to his new home in the UK.

Picture shows two little Scandinavians missing the ferry in Rodbyhavn, Denmark by only 2 minutes.

Anyway! It’s lovely to be back in sunny London! First thing I did was clearing out our winter clothes, making space for Spring Summer! Thank you for visiting and looking forward to catching up!
