Vegan Fast-Food in New York

THANK YOU, by Chloe, for not just being yet another fancy, expensive clean-eating, raw-food, annoyingly healthy restaurant, but for serving greasy, delicious fast-food that make meat-eaters think twice! I’m a vegetarian, and so I’m always happy to discover places like this one! The place (we visited the one in Bleecker Street) was super cozy and down-to-earth. Next to me sat an all-american New Jersey dad with his little kid crawling back and...

Coffee & Pastries in Brooklyn

I came across Butler Bakeshop and Espresso bar on Instagram a couple of days before my trip to New York and immediately added it to my list of places to go. Carina and I went Monday morning for a cup of coffee, and I quite liked the vibe here. It’s located right by the Williamsburg Bridge, a couple of minutes walk from the Bedford Avenue subway station. Only regulars/locals seemed to stop by for their morning...

Jack’s Wife Freda, New York

I came across Jack’s Wife Freda on Instagram and immediately fell in love with the place (without having been there), so naturally it was high on my list of places to visit during my time in the city. I arrived Wednesday (a day later than planned due to the major snowstorm in NYC on Tuesday), and both Carina (whom I’m spending my time in the city with) and myself were too exhausted...

New York, New York

It’s been exactly a year since my first visit to New York, and I’m beyond excited to be back! There are so many things I didn’t get around to doing/visiting/drinking/eating during my last trip here, so I’m grateful for this visit that I’ve been longing for ever since I boarded the plane back to Copenhagen last March. I arrived Wednesday, an hour or two before Carina, my friend from Munich,...

Birthday Brunch

Yesterday was my 24th birthday, and I managed to gather a handful of good friends with whom I enjoyed a lovely birthday brunch at Mad & Kaffe (one of the very best Copenhagen brunch spots). Lorraine, my friend from Paris, flew in from France and came with me to see my family for dinner in the evening, before heading back to Copenhagen for a festive night out! What a day!

Pinspiration: New York City

It’s my birthday on Saturday, and I believe that the realization that I’m going to New York on Tuesday is probably my very best birthday present. You know how you can plan for something for a long time, but you don’t get to experience the excitement fully till a couple of days before the trip. So yup, I’m pretty excited at this point. I travel all the time, but there’s something...

5 Travel Reads of The Month

Yet another post of inspiring/useful travel reads, I’ve come across this past month or so. I’ve had more than a few flight delays over the past couple of months, so this New York Times mindfulness practise sure came in handy. This is pretty awesome: an app to tell you when to leave for the airport. Read about it here. I struggle with motion sickness, which is one of the reasons I’m such...

Travel Ritual #1: Early Mornings in Coffeeshops

It’s hard for me not to romanticize this ritual, because it’s one of the simple things in life that I enjoy the most. Especially while living in Paris; a city, I find most charming on weekend mornings, when the parisians (who make any other morning of the week feel stressful on the metro and elsewhere) are still in bed, and the only people in the streets are trash men, street sweepers and...

My Guide to Paris

I’ve lived in Paris on/off since 2012 and have spent hours strolling the narrow streets of le Marais, sipping café au laits in my favorite coffeeshops, running in Jardin du Luxembourg and braving the Pigalle nightlife. In other words I’m long overdue to share with you my guide to the best city of all: Paris. First off: forget the Eiffel Tower and the Champs-Élysées – I would be a terrible travel writer if I...

Travel Chic: 5 Essentials

Includes sponsored links: 1/ Ruffle button up shirt, Monki 2/ Trousers, KIOMI 3/ Watch, Cluse 4/Sunglasses, Ace & Tate 5/ Sneaks, Reebok. I feel like I’m back to where I was last year around this time: about to go to NYC, not feeling stylish enough at all to brave the streets of one of the most fashionable cities in the world. So I thought I’d put together some inspiration – for...

In Between My Travels #2

(Scroll ned for dansk) Sunday I arrived back from four lovely days in the Algarve. It was my first time in Portugal, so I was overly excited about finally going. Yesterday I had a deadline for one of my Algarve articles, which left me working non-stop till noon – Then I could finally lean back and watch the Oscars on the internet (I look forward to this event every year,...

Postcard from The Algarve

Man, I wish I had a GoPro with me yesterday, biking for hours along orange fields in the sun, passing cute, little villages on my way… I arrived in the Algarve Thursday morning at Faro airport, from where I was picked up and taken to the Ria Formosa natural park area, where my hotel is – located between two huge golf courts. Absolutely stunning views. When I arrived it was...
