Isabelle

31/05/2016

One of my closest swedish friends in London just had a baby!! I walked into her apartment, saw baby Isabelle, and didn’t know what to do with myself. I definitely didn’t want to pick her up, that thought scared me! Such a strange feeling as I love holding babies, but I don’t think I’ve been around a baby this young before?! She had just turned 2 weeks when I visited.  I bought some fika (swedish word for cake with tea/coffee)…

Sager + Wilde, tgif!

27/05/2016

A couple of weeks ago I visited the lovely wine bar Sager & Wilde on Hackney Road with my friend Tom. This time we decided to check out the restaurant. We had both had an AWFUL day at work and in our personal lives so we decided that alcohol was the answer to all our problems.  The service at Sager & Wilde is spot on and our waitress was great. She recommended some great small platters (never thought I’d be…

Nyhavn (new harbour) and more architecture

27/05/2016

On our last day in Copenhagen we decided to check out all the interior shops and nyhavn (new harbour). Unfortunately for us it was a red day and absolutely everything was closed, so upsetting! We managed to find the Danish Architecture Centre and decided to check it out. Beautiful old building. We saw the exhibition 52 weeks, 52 cities by photographer Iwan Baan. Stunning pictures from all over the world.A must. Gift shop. Found a cool orange wall and decided to have…

Vordingborg, Pate Pate and Troyboi

26/05/2016

On Saturday we woke up bright and early and had breakfast before taking the train to Vordingborg in south Denmark to visit my Auntie and cousins. I don’t have a big family, but the family that I have are spread across Europe and Asia which makes it quite hard to keep in touch (thank God for Facebook/Instagram/Skype!). We had a short and sweet tour of her tiny little town, ate Pho (Vietnamese noodle soup, the best) and just talked.  In…

Ribs and Tory Lanez

25/05/2016

The reason for us going to Copenhagen wasn’t only to see the beautiful city that it is, but to see Tory Lanez perform. Just before the concert we found a quite random american diner where we had ribs, yuuuum. Ridiculously messy but oh so good.Tory Lanez performed at the cinema (the venue is actually called cinema, but in danish) which was in the area where we lived. We had a few drinks and watched him perform from afar – which…

Rent a bike!

25/05/2016

After our wonderful meal at Amass we rented bikes (copenhagen city bikes) that were parked right outside the restaurant. You’ll see the bikes everywhere in Copenhagen, it’s kind of like the boris bikes in London only way better. You enter your personal and card details to register and poff, it’s yours. What’s super cool about them is that they have a tablet with built in gps where you enter addresses, places of interest or where to return the bike and…

Amass

25/05/2016

Amass restaurant is located near the water in a pretty industrial area of Copenhagen. As I mentioned, we walked for quite some time to find the place – meanwhile most people cycle or take a cab. It is owned (he is also the head chef) by American Matthew Orlando who used to work at Noma – a restaurant which has been voted the worlds best restaurant 4 times so obvs my expectations were high. Let’s just jump right into it.…

Architecture and sunshine

24/05/2016

On friday morning we woke up bright and early because of our dear young neighbours and build work. We didn’t have any plans in the morning so I suggested we’d walk to the restaurant where I had booked lunch. The walk was slightly longer than expected but what a beautiful walk! The architecture in Copenhagen is absolutely amazing so we stopped everywhere to take pictures. Because of the sunny weather and blue skies I obviously wore black.  Oh Noma. Wish…

Our Airbnb apartment in Copenhagen

21/05/2016

80% of the holidays me and G have been on we have rented an apartment. It is usually cheaper than a hotel and you get to immerse yourself in a (usually) non touristy area. We tend to buy breakfast items at a local shop and spend money on lunch/dinners out. Our apartment in Copenhagen was on the 3rd floor of a big apartment building and filled with light. Big windows, white walls, wooden floors – basically a dream. It was literally…
