Glimpse of Lisbon

Whetting our appetites with douro, percebes and pasteis during a Lisbon work weekend (cut even shorter by flight delays); hope to see more of Portugal soon.

Genial Gustavsberg

Final summer stay in the Stockholm archipelago, exploring Norra Lagnö and historic Gustavsberg. Skål to our courageous Berlin visitors, and tasteful AirBnB host Sara.

Antique abundance

Touring the 18th-century home and recreated gardens of Carl Linnaeus, father of modern taxonomy, in Uppsala, Sweden. Thanks to gracious guests Veronica and Dieter Söll for inspiring a beautiful journey.

Boo views

Long weekend in Stockholm-archipelago town Saltsjö-Boo with adventurous guests from San Francisco and Geneva. Meeting AirBnB host Tomas was a delightful bonus—easy to see why he loves it here.

Inner islands

July day trips among the more populated local reaches of the Stockholm archipelago on Fjäderholmarna and Värmdö.

Copenhagen harmonies

Music and meandering during the 39th annual Jazz Festival in Denmark’s colorful capital. Roberto Fonseca was predictably stunning, alongside phenomenal finds Sahra da Silva, Anna PaulineJack Street and Zigaboom.

Värmdö visions

Dipping our toes into archipelago life on Sandhamn, Fågelbrolandet, and Djurö: an hour on Stockholm public transit to another world.
