"The wise in any foreign country seek a true guide," Hafiz wrote. Sofie is that true guide: highly intelligent, well read, extremely knowledgeable - and most delightful. We toured the wonderful farmhouse of Karen Blixen (Out of Africa), and Sofie shared many insights into the author's life and character. Later we looked at iconic Danish products on display in the Design Museum, and Sofie kindly listed favorite shops that I might (and did) enjoy. A highlight of my monthlong European journey!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: The day we shared, Cheryl, was a highlight of my five years of guiding; to have rich, boundless conversation on literature, design and intercultural experiences for an entire day made me feel blessed. Tak. I am furthermore grateful that you enjoyed it too – in spite of a few detours. Or perhaps that was a part of our exploration? “Most men pursue pleasure with such breathless haste that they hurry past it,” as Kierkegaard observed.
