visual evidence/resa runt lilla europa.

I visited little France and little Germany during my sojourns in little Denmark and little Sweden. (I also visited little Norway and, to a certain extent, little Finland, but didn’t have a memory card at the time – nor did I have a memory card for the majority of my time in Bemidji this summer. Oops.)

Here’s what I did bring home, in terms of things to see.
