HAPPY VERNAL EQUINOX TO YOU

This Monday was the spring equinox – did you know? It’s officially spring now. Whether the weather in your corner of the world believes it or not! With equal parts daylight and darkness, my world feels a bit more balanced.

I kicked off the spring with a trip to the Danish coast. It was perfect. Where do you do spring? Tell me. Show us! Let’s link up.


FAVORITES WEEK #22

Thank you to everyone who linked up last week, we had a bevy of cool posts and in case you missed any, you can catch up here. These were my faves.

Annette of A French Collection took us on a book tour of Saint Malo, France the setting for one of my favorite books – Anthony Doerr’s All the Light We Cannot See. I love adding a real sense of space to the imagery created when reading a book. And just look at this beach!

Rosie from Truly Madly Kids has me coveting a vaca on Crete – the family side. She shows the culture, beautiful tones and bright sunshine of the island. I love the colors and the buildings. So different from Denmark!

Lanzarote’s landscapes and connection to art has me longing for the Canary Islands. Jo from Where Jo Goes takes on a trip through the Lanzarote of the artist Cesar Manrique.

And finally, take a soothing soak in a Japanese hot spring. Lorita from Every Little Thing takes us on an intimate tour of the stunning Kinosaki Onsen hot springs. Don’t worry – it’s all very discrete and delicate and beautiful. But there are rules. Read on!

Disclosure – I have a tattoo! So no Japanese hot springs for me apparently! It’s ok – there are plenty of places to take naked dips in Scandinavia, where lots of the population have WAY more tattoos than moi. And when I need soothing – I like to go to the seaside. Come see the soothing tones of the Danish coast in today’s post.

  2. Lol… I know many people who can’t get past the no-tattoo rule at Japanese onsens! Lucky for me, I have very low pain threshold so tattoos never crossed my mind and I have been free to enter Japanese onsens. :p

  3. Spring seems so far away! It is autumn here in Australia at the moment and I am not looking forward to winter. Mind you we don’t have much of a winter in Perth.

      I know – I realize when I write seasonal bits that half of the world is in the opposite one! But after a dark, Scandinavian winter – I can only embrace the positive when spring starts emerging! Would love to see Perth btw! Cheers and thank you for the perspective! Be brave this winter! 😉 Erin

  4. Thanks for sharing my post, Erin! Ya, unfortunately no tattoos in Japanese hot springs 🙁 Apparently, they see tattoos as some kind of association with gangsters and other illegal associations. Definitely a cultural difference there.
