  1. I love that you highlight chocolate, coffee and shoes on your trip to Malmo! Not that these are things that interest me, but that despite their focus, you have a great gift for immersing us in the city through your prose and photos.
    Jealous…

    1. Tee hee, chocolate and coffee are life’s two wonderful gifts to mankind as are expensive shoes made so well that your heart goes bumitybump, no? Funny the strange associations that come through when you travel…plus you are seeing them through a whimsical person’s eyes 😛 xx

      1. hehehe and I always thought our greatest gifts were Snickers and Dominos Pizza. I’ve clearly got a lot to learn… 😉

  2. This looks exactly like the type of city I would love to visit for a couple of days and wander the beautiful streets and sit in the coffee shops, because an abundance of good coffee is enough to make me adore a place:’) And that German shepherd sounds so cute! Xx

  3. The only building by Santiago Calatrava that I know is his stunning new railway station in Liège, Belgium, on the high-speed line from Aachen to Brussels.

  4. I don’t know which I am charmed more – by the lovely custom of fika or the group of lively musicians marching down the street. Although I have a feeling that the musicians will not get very far 😉 I will dream of Summerbird Chocolates tonight! – Neek

  5. You had me at ‘The Bridge’ …. how incredible was that show!!! Then you had me at coffee …. I love a nation that quietly respects the brew – France shares that in some way and of course Italy would not be Italy without its love of the roasted bean. And cake. You had me at cake – but you always will. There is just SO much to delight in, in this post and your pictures beguile beautifully xx

    1. Thank you Osyth 🙂
      The Bridge – I remembered the anticipation and thrills of that show. That scene shot on the bridge scarred me for days. I miss such shows. So if you have any recommendations, please to pass on.
      I would go miles for coffee …I have never had bad coffee in either Italy or France. So it is easy to see why those countries have my heart too. And cake, sigh, you are in the land of the best patisserie. xx

      1. I’ll give it some thought and also ask my youngest daughter who is VERY good at recommending good viewing. My biggest recommendation at the moment which is a book not a film (they started making it and never finished to my chagrin) is ‘The Boys in The Boat’ .. I seldom say ‘must read’ but honestly I think everyone should. And on that note, it would be rude not to trot to the patisserie to snaffle a cake for some merit to go with my afternoon cuppa! Green tea now, no more coffee til the morrow or I shall not sleep a wink. I wonder I wonder I wonder what will catch my magpie eye today ? xx

      2. Ooh ooh ooh, I would love to know what it is. I am taken back to a particular evening as I walked by a patisserie in Versailles’ beautiful neighbourhood where the aroma of vanilla and butter drew me with an intangible thread. I remember the evening, the girls and the pastries that made me want to snaffle all in a huge breath. Even Nessie would have risen out of the loch if all that booty was laid out at Urquhart.
        I shall look up The Boys in the Boat. I love book and show recommendations. Do fire away. I hope your daughter has a ton in store for me. Hugs to both of you! xx

      3. Oh please do … it’s a marvellous read. I shamefully had it on the shelf for 3 years after it was recommended by an elderly gentleman my husband chatted to on a plane and mentioned my rowing back history. I foolishly thought that a book centered on rowing could not be compelling. How wrong I was! I am back home now and have a tarte aux noix caramélisées which is the local speciality (Grenoble is the home of walnuts) – the tea is brewing and I am definitely in a corner of paradise for a little while xx. I can guarantee my daughter will deliver lots of ideas – I’m the same as you…. just keep them coming! Do you follow Sultana Bun? She reviews books so irresistibly that I am practically bankrupted by her!

      4. No, I do not know about Sultana Bun but I shall check her out now. Your recommendation cannot be overlooked.
        I could not locate Dinah Jefferies in the libraries here. I have to look again or just start using Noorie the Nook (she is lying untouched in a corner of my drawer)!
        The tart sounds just up my alley. Scoff away, my friend. I shall savour the nutty sweet & salty goodness of it in my mind and close my eyes with delirious pleasure from across the waters. xx

      5. You are going to be in Rome? Oh la la … I used to live there! It’s my favourite place on earth. Where I thought I would end my days but then I met old Two Brains and France it is (which I also love unreservedly but Rome ….. Rome!!) Bon voyage ma belle amie xx

      6. Thank you, my lovely!
        To have lived in Rome… I doubt not that there was bounty in Two Brains’ charm 🙂
        We were so swept away by Rome last summer that we cannot hold ourselves back. Plus it breaks an otherwise awfully long journey to India. Onwards ho to Campari and carciofi land! 😀 Any particular recommendations? xx

      7. Yes. The Pantheon is still my favourite place in the whole city. Spend time in the ghetto – it’s my favourite quartier but I lived there so it would be I suppose. Treat her like you treated Copenhagen …. just be, don’t be tourists. What else? Too long ago to recommend restaurants and cafes but just eat and drink it all in. Jealous. A little. And if it was Milan I would drive down and give you both a hug – Rome is a little too far. I’ll be thinking of you, I will email you and I wish you both safe travels. Or rather bon voyage. Xx

      8. We have done the touristy bits, rest assured. Now it will be the one-off palazzo or so but mainly speakeasies and jazz clubs and gelaterias and pizzerias. We did wander through the ghetto briefly earlier so maybe will explore it a bit more this time. I do not want it to start because then it means it will come to an end all too soon! But thank you for the wishes, o wonderful Osyth 🙂

  6. Unlike those Scandi crime series which I feel deter potential visitors – but that maybe is their raison d’etre – your posts and photos positively draw in the reader and we’re then all planning our next trip to somewhere in Sweden.

    1. Tee hee thank you Sheree! If you do, do indulge in some fika and savour it for me. For me, the Scandi crime series are the draw 😛 I cannot get enough of them. Yes, yes, you have a strange one here! xx

  7. Oh hello there… here I was searching WordPress for blog posts about Malmo and look who popped up. I am looking at doing a trip in November next year to Europe & have a few days in Copenhagen. I thought about popping over to Malmo. Would you definitely recommend it?

      1. Exactly the idea and what we did too. It was frighteningly cold in November though, so do be well bundled up unless you want to feel like an icicle on the move 🙂 I hope you are having a good time this holiday season. xx
