Conveiving a dish at Lux däg for däg

Finally Sweden !

  Last step in Sweden !   I’m leaving Hemsedal quite sad, saying goodbye to all the friends (but that’s how it works!), during a nice last evening.   I must admit that it’s a little bit stunned that I take the night bus to airport.   Plane fly off at 11 am, I’ve time […]
