Three things I've enjoyed recently:
1. The smell of lime-tree blossoms when I cycle home. If I could smell of anything, if I could get someone to make me my own personal fragrance, it would be this.
2. Houses. Always. The other day I spent an entire afternoon walking around, staring at the different houses. (I don't have a clue about architecture, I just like the various shapes and sizes. Sorry if this is boring for everyone else. Only not really)
3. Yesterday we watched Mannen Som Elsket Yngve. I somehow didn't expect it to be brilliant, but by the end of it I was completely heartbroken. What is it about Scandinavian films about teenagers that's so utterly realistic and touching? It's been impossible to get the story and the characters out of my head.


  1. Mannen Som Elsket Yngve made me tear up too, and the soundtrack is just excellent. The sequel, Jeg reiser alene, was released this year.

    And I just want to add that I enjoy reading your blog very much.

  2. Oh my, that's good to know! I really want to read the books now, but neither those nor the film has been published in Austria.

    And: Thanks a lot!

  3. Ooh, that film sounds excellent! I'd never heard of it before, but I'll have to see if I can get my hands on it somewhere! Thanks for the tip! :)
