Holbæk was the biggest "city" near Maibritt and Luciano's home in Denmark. At first glance, it might seem like the sleepy little town doesn't have a lot to offer. But then you find out that spending time at the library is as common as going out for coffee. Or you find a tiny little second-hand shop (and an almost translucent tea cup to bring home for your mom's collection). And then you find mugs with "common" Danish names and giggle to yourself because you haven't met a single "Kasper" in your life.

They're really simple things, but they add a lot of charm to this simple town.
