Descent

Sunset, Denmark | www.myfoododyssey.com

We’re off on our travels again. The car is packed with sleeping bags, food for the journey and a month’s worth of clothes, books and DVDs. We’re making what is becoming an annual trip to Denmark where we will work for a family that grows Christmas trees and runs a Christmas shop. Arūnas will be working in the fields, cutting and collecting the trees, while I will be working in the shop and hopefully doing some cooking for the family. It’s an intensive month but one we’re very much looking forward to. A change is as good as a rest, as they say. This photo was taken from our bedroom window during last year’s trip. We were both tired from a day’s work and watching the sun’s slow descent over the horizon was very soporific. We both slept well.

    • Excellent! Looks like I’ll finally get to make my colcannon! I might even contact those “Cabbage Bitches” (their term, not mine!) to see if they’d be interested in the recipe. Thanks a million for passing this on!

    We had an (almost) identical sunset in Dublin on Tuesday last. Bright reds, purples and blues. My daughter said it was the most beautiful sunset she ever saw. I think she’s in love…it changes your perspective.
