Getting photos and doing interviews for the stories we put together requires lots of logistical work. Often most people just see the final story with the photos placed in. Let me show you a few photos of more of the behind the scenes look at our trips to Denmark and Romania.
In this photo we’re either figuring out our next location for photos, and where to eat…or both. Søren always had lots of great ideas for photo locations especially when the light was just right. The bag with him is full of his photo gear.
Eating was actually a challenge in Denmark because of the cost. The Danish krone is worth a lot more than the American dollar, so everything felt very expensive. We ate a lot of fruit, granola and yogurt in the apartment where we stayed to minimize the cost of our meals.
We got lost our first time walking around Aarhus, Denmark. We were almost an hour late to where we were supposed to meet with Søren and Lise. I think in this picture Jeff and I were in a discussion about how to get to our destination :).

We spent most of our time in Romania in a small village called Margau. The village had some great old and new contrasts…like…a wood fired water heater along side great wireless internet. The scenery around us was beautiful, and the slower pace of life made this part of our trip very enjoyable.

We experienced the wonderful hospitality of Ghiță and his family. We had every meal at their big outdoor picnic table. The food was wonderful. A special treat that Jeff and I enjoyed was making our own soda. Homemade syrup (fruit juice and a simple sugar syrup) + sparkling water–try it yourself!

On trips like this, you never know when you’ll be busy and when you can relax. This was one of the moments we had to chill out.
