curbed writers cabin

The idea of a writer's cabin is even more enticing to us than a tiny house: somewhere nookish and clean to escape from the world, all cozied up with a pencil, a notebook, and nowhere else to be. At just over 100 square feet, this Norwegian one currently has our heart. (Curbed)

This man-made connector—part five-mile cable bridge and part two-mile tunnel—transitions from above-ground to subterranean halfway across the waterway between Copenhagen, Denmark and Malmö, Sweden. It's called Peberholm, is a breeding ground for a rare local green toad, and now at the top of our dream drive bucket list. (My Modern Met
