Split into categories – the great (ones I recommend to nearly everyone), the good (ones I enjoyed but didn’t make my ‘top list’) and the ok (ones I liked but probably won’t read again) – these are my 2018 reads.
Copenhagen is only a short train ride away from my hometown Lund, and although I have visited frequently over the years there has been a tendency to revisit the same areas (Strøget, for shopping) and restaurants (Café Norden, for brunch/lunch/dinner – it’s all fantastic). For that reason, I’ve vowed to do at least one new… Continue reading Overnight oats 3 ways + breakfast in Copenhagen

I would estimate that we spent equal amounts of time finding sights and activities – the Opera House, the Miniatur Wunderland,… Continue reading 4 PLACES TO EAT & DRINK IN HAMBURG
After a fairytale wedding that spanned over a full weekend, from the rehearsal dinner in an chic and rustic bar on 14th street to the wedding brunch at the traditionally gorgeous St. Regis, we spent another week in the capital acting like your typical tourists. This is what we got up to. GEORGETOWN Georgetown feels,… Continue reading THE AMERICAN CAPITAL
