Scandanavia, what does the word conjure up to you? Is it Copenhagen's enchanting Tivoli pleasure gardens, Stockholm's authentic Old Town or Norway's majestic mountains and fjords? For me, it's all of this… and so much more! Touring here has shown me the exciting mix of traditional and contemporary architecture, cutting-edge design, the rich Nordic history and the comfortable, easy pace of the Scandanavian lifestyle. Whatever the season, I never tire of the ever-changing colors and magic of its landscape. Quite simply, I have fallen in love with Scandanavia and I am passionate about sharing this with you!
