Where I currenty am in Sweden, Denmark is only an hour or so away by car thanks to the Öresunds Bridge.
Fans of The Bridge and The Killing TV series will be familiar with this area of Nordic Noir, though I am pleased to say I didn't encounter a single corpse along the way.
Instead, I ventured further up the coast north of Copenhagen to Louisiana. If you haven't been, it is not - as the name suggests - some mini replica of the US state by the same name. Rather, it is the jewel in the Danish art crown - a fabulous gallery dedicated to modern art.
The nobleman who had the house built that later became the art gallery was married three times, each time to a different girl called Louise (useful if you are bad with names!), hence the name Louisiana.
The gallery building itself is a masterpiece in modern Danish architechture and lovely to walk around in. Although some of it is on a subterranean level, it feels light, cool and airy and oozes quality. Even the lifts have white marbe flooring! Situated close to the water it also offers fantastic waterside views. The large garden terrace is a lovely spot to sit and digest lunch and the art you've just consumed, particuarly on a sunny day like today (yes, finally, we have sunshine!).
I'd come especially to see the Peter Doig exhibition, but there was also another interesting one that explored the cultural and architectural identity of Africa.
I wanted to dive into Doig's paintings! One in particular, pictured below with its big starry sky, has stayed with me.
