What do you spend money on most on the road?
Alice: "You better don't ask!" (laughs)
Claire: "On clothes, that's easy, just on clothes. In Switzerland there's cheese, the more smelly the better. In Denmark it's clothes, often in second hands..."
Sonia: "You'd be surprised how even American women that we met were shopping at Danish second hands."
Alice: "And discounts! There's discount! But there's also completely new stuff. For example this T-shirt I'm just wearing I bought last time, it was new and cost 25 Danish crowns."
Sonia: "At second hands we also buy specialities such as paintings, antiques, china and so on."
Alice: "And in this way we could go on and on..."
Andrea: "By the way, before I joined the band, I used to go shopping twice a year, in summer and in winter."
Sonia: "And now you are forced to go shopping every week!"
Andrea: "It happened to me that I was with my boyfriend Tomas in Milan and I made him spend half a day at shopping centers!" (laughs)
Sonia: "And he said that the Country Sisters spoiled you!" (laughs)
Andrea: "And poor Tomas had to buy a T-shirt, too." (laughs)
Do you sometimes buy souvenirs when get to a place you haven't been before?
Alice: "Of course, for example beer openers. I also buy mugs. I have about 5 of those so far. Switzerland, Greenland, the Faroe Islands or any place that I find interesting, I buy a mug there."
Alena: "I have to admit that Greenland really impressed me and I bought a lot of souvenirs there."
Claire: "Alice brought a great souvenir home the other day. It was one of those Swiss cheese and she couldn't leave a toilet for a week. It's not very ideal to carry cheese in a boiling heat in the car in summer..." (laughs)
Sonia: "We usually buy some traditional souvenirs in exotic countries we visit."
Claire: "Seal leathers in Greenland, sheep leathers in the Faroe Islands..."
Sonia: "I also have several leathers at home and recently I was considering to buy a sheet blanket."
Claire: "Isn't it illegal?"
Sonia: No, they normally sell it as souvenirs, we bought it legally. It was the same with the seal. We didn't shoot it ourselves!" (laughs)
