Slow Living on Kos

Slow Living on Kos I must – once again – apologize for being such a terrible blogger these days. I’m back; recharged and ready for more adventures! It’s been a hectic past couple of weeks, but last week I spent 5 days on Kos, surrounded by fellow creatives and travellers and in beautiful (and hot!) surroundings, which was exactly what I was in need of. Just when people were starting to...

Summer Recap

Yesterday marked the end of summer, and the beginning of my favorite season: fall. Now, my summer has been full of extraordinary experiences and first-time visits. In early summer I went to the island of Madeira with my sister to see some whales, eat some delicious foods and drink lots of Madeira wine: A few weeks later I went on a little weekend spa-trip in Sweden with a friend of mine: And not long...

New York City Guide

New York is one of those cities, like Paris or Rome, that I get absolutely high on. The atmosphere, the people, the diversity. And, of course, all those places I’ve seen a million times in films and TV shows. It’s packed with amazing coffeeshops, restaurants and things to see/do, and I don’t think I’ll ever feel like I’ve seen/tasted everything there is to see/taste in the city = always a reason to go back! I...

Democratic Coffee (and The Best Croissant in Copenhagen)

Democratic Coffee is where you’ll find me once or twice a week when I’m not traveling. It’s my favorite workspace and coffeeshop in Copenhagen. I usually come here quite early in the morning – before the library-visitors (Democratic Coffee is connected to the public library, which is quite convenient). When I arrive I smell the croissants being prepared, and often there’s this old man playing the piano for half an hour around...

My First Coffee: Introduction

I was recently in Paris working on a major piece about specialty coffee in the french capital. When it comes to specialty coffee – something I’m quite passionate about, as you’ll know if you’ve read my blog, followed my Instagram or simply know me – Paris holds a special place in my heart. Why? Because Paris was where I first started to actually like coffee. A friend of mine took me...

Sonny: Coffee and French Vibes in Copenhagen

It was about time I payed Sonny a visit. I’ve literally wanted to go since they first teased the opening back in February. Oh well, better late than never! And boy was I happy that I finally went! I had just returned home from Paris where I’d spent most of my waking hours in coffeeshops – including Coutume café, where David, the owner of Sonny, apparently used to pull espresso...

Guide: Specialty Coffeeshops in Paris

Specialty Coffeeshops in Paris Today there are well over a hundred specialty coffeeshops in Paris. There wasn’t when I first lived in the city back in 2012. I’ve followed the specialty coffee scene in Paris rather closely since I was first introduced to La Caféothèque by a friend when I lived in Paris a couple of years ago. It’s one of my favorite coffee scenes, along with the ones in Berlin...
