Walking Denmark

Thwack thwack, thwack thwack, was the sound I heard while rounding a curve on my daily walk. Next, I saw the scythe swinging back and forth in a field of tall weeds. I’ll never forget what I saw then. The farmer swinging the scythe had nothing on except cluncky work boots and tiny black bikini underwear – barely more than a g-string. His rail-thin, sinewy body’s tan told me this wasn’t the first time doing this, either. Scratching my head, I continued walking. But lest you think Denmark is filled with old dude farmers using only hand tools...

And the Winner Is… ITKT’s Favorite Destination

Posted by on 4:50 pm in Announcements, Denmark, Spotlight | 1 comment

In a year filled with fantastic surprises at every destination I visited, one stood out as a favorite. One that I could see myself one living in at some point down the road. It’s charming, interesting and has lots to explore – ITKT’s Favorite Destination of 2008 is Denmark. In Copenhagen, I found that meandering through the great pedestrian streets like Strauss, exploring the nooks and crannies of one hundred-year-old theme park, Tilovi, people watching, whiling away the hours in one of Copenhagen’s many squares, enjoying a copicino, and...

And the Winner is… ITKT’s Favorite Flight

Posted by on 10:49 pm in Announcements, Denmark, ITKT Blogs, Spotlight, Sweden | 0 comments

Still, I have gotten use to all the changes in air travel and, sadly, have come to expect...
