the wood house


this is the house i grew up in. my parents' green and white wood house from 1923. it was built by a swedish carpenter who moved to denmark with his family, and it is full of amazing wood carving details, inside as well as outside. i really love this house.

this is my last day in denmark. i'm sad to leave the family and friends behind, to leave my home. but i am also looking forward to get back home. see, that's the good thing about this: i am always going home.
