Mouthwatering Sushi in The Faroe Islands

As you might already know, I’ve just been to the mysterious, remote, unspoiled and absolutely breathtaking Faroe Islands, where I had the chance to visit a couple of very decent restaurants. Really, I was surprised just how competent the faroese are when it comes to culinary ventures. And man, do they know how to make full use of their surroundings. The islands are famous for their dried lamb meat and, of...

Faroe Islands Photo Diary

Yesterday I came back home after a 4-day trip to the Faroe Islands. It really was quite an unusual place – more so than Iceland, though I did find that they are similar in more ways than not. We (Sidsel, my new partner-in-crime, and I) rented a car the entire time, which was a very clever decision since it’s pretty hard to get around the islands otherwise. Tórshavn itself is tiny, so the majority...

The Most Beautiful Parc in Rome

With all its historic landmarks alone, Rome is such a breathtaking city. However, I often find that the crowds ruin the experience (being an introvert and all 😉 ) and I simply don’t enjoy hanging around the Trevi fountain, surrounded by people, constantly minding my bag and my camera. No, I much prefer going places like this one: Parc Savello (or Giardino degli Aranci). It’s one of the most beautiful gardens...

Sunny Sunday in Copenhagen

My cousin is visiting, and yesterday was a beautiful, sunny day here in Copenhagen, so we wandered around the botanical gardens, popped by the National Gallery of Denmark (I can totally recommend the current exhibition – The North meets Japan, so cool) and had coffee at Torvehallerne (Coffee Collective, of course). It’s nice to have a little break at home before I’m off to the Faroe Islands on Sunday! Stay tuned...

5 Travel Reads of The Month

Best Pizzeria in Rome

On our first night in Rome we decided to check out the Pizzeria Ai Marmi in Trastevere. I always, always make an effort to track down the most authentic places, and avoid tourist traps (and there are a lot of those in cities like Rome, believe me), and Pizzeria Ai Marmi is a find that I was extremely excited about! So, elbow-to-elbow we sat amongst a mix of locals and tourists who, like...

Eat, Pray, Love

If you’ve seen the beautiful film, “Eat, Pray, Love”, you might have already recognized this restaurant. We passed by in the afternoon when the waiters were preparing to reopen for dinner later in the evening. We headed back to Trastevere and didn’t dine here, but I definitely will on my next trip to Rome! Just look how romantic the settings are: The restaurant is called Ristorante Santa Lucia and you’ll find it...

Postcard from Rome

It’s been three magical days in Rome, and I’m already longing to go back to all the hidden trattorias and espresso bars, piazzas and fountains. Since it was my/our very first time in Rome, we felt like we “had” to (and was very excited to) see the Vatican, the spanish steps, the Colosseum, and so on (which was quite draining, to be honest)… I’ve never seen so many tourists in my life! However, we did take...

Greenwich Village Stationary Paradise

You should’ve seen my face when I stumbled upon this place on our stroll through Greenwich Village (my favorite NYC neighborhood). I was “summoned” by the beautiful notebooks, pens and general interior of the McNally Jackson Store as we passed by, and I fell even more head-over-heels in love as I wandered around the store, mesmerized. I regret not spending more time there, though (then again, I could’ve spent hours...

5 New York Specialty Coffeeshops

When traveling to cities, I always spend a great amount of time visiting specialty coffeeshops: in Paris especially, but elsewhere too. While in New York I managed to drag Carina along to so many coffeeshops that she might never go to one again. Nevertheless, one of the results of my many coffeeshop-visits is this post, in which I’ll share 5 of my favorite specialty coffeeshops in New York City: Dansk: Jeg tilbringer altid en stor...

Dinner at Café Henrie, New York

On my trip to New York I had the pleasure of testing Café Henrie’s new dinner service. Café Henrie has long been a favorite amongst bloggers and instagrammers – but mostly for their picture-perfect brunch. So when I was invited for dinner in the café I didn’t quite know what to expect. The place is absolutely adorable: kind of diner-inspired, pink and retro. Perfect for Instagram, really – but in...

Buddha Bowls on the Upper East Side

Two of the things I enjoy most in cities are (1) specialty coffeeshops and (2) vegan/vegetarian restaurants! So I was particularly excited about my visit at By CHLOE and, of course, this gem! Le Botaniste, located a few blocks from Midtown and a stone’s throw from Central Park, is all about healthy, plant-based, organic food. Carina and I chose to share a buddha bowl (the Tibetan Mama Rice bowl, to be...
