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...

It’s one of my favorite coffee scenes, along with the ones in Berlin...

Petit déjeuner on Île Saint-Louis

One of the things I always do when in Paris, even though I’m admittedly not too fond of the coffee in regular cafés, is that I go for petit déjeuner (aka. breakfast) in one of them. Café, croissant et jus d’orange pressé seems to be the perfect way to begin the day in a city like Paris. Le Saint-Régis is a beautiful café located on the tip of the island of Île Saint-Louis in the very...
