Eating and drinking here is superlative and the city oozes cool factor with just enough grit pretty much everywhere you go.Read More
A comprehensive city guide to travelling Copenhagen — places to go, things to do, where to stay, what to eat, places to drink in the Danish capital.Read More
Tivoli Gardens is likely one of the first sites you will encounter in Copenhagen, and allegedly the oldest operating theme park in the world. Opened in 1843, Tivoli Gardens is located next to the Copenhagen central station and is decidedly out of place in comparison to the clean cut Scandinavian architecture that surrounds it.Read More
Din Nye Ven means your new friends in Danish.Read More
Coffee Collective is regarded in fine coffee circles as a world leader. One of the first to embrace sustainability and socially ethical practices, they have led the way for positive change in an industry that the general public largely takes for granted.Read More
If you're in Barcelona you should make the effort to go here. It is some strange chocolate meets donut fantasy. Think Juliette Binoche in Chocolat meets Vicky Cristina Barcelona.Read More
I love Barcelona hotels for their creativity and design flare, and Ofelias Hotel delivers on both. A small hotel with a kind of Barcelona meets Santa Monica style and a rooftop lap pool.
The rooms are comfortably modern without being austere, and most importantly — the beds are comfortable.Read More
The Mikkeller and Friends Bar in Copenhagen's Nørrebro neighbourhood is possibly the worldwide seminary school of beer drinking.
The first time I drank beer here was on the suggestion of a fiery red headed model and her American-Icelandic convert friend. It was a busy night in June, just before the summer solstice — the perfect kind of night to wind up in a Danish watering hole after a day of cycling around the city.Read More
Luciano's quads are the size of my waist. They are large enough to cast their own shadow...whereas mine are definitely not. I continue to pedal furiously behind the spandex clad Italian, fighting to keep the train car attached and not be the weak link in our mini-peleton. In cycling, the group always moves faster together, and if you fall off the back, well — your ride is done.Read More
Sundays in Barcelona are a bit sleepy, but that's not to say that there is a shortage of awesome things to do. While many of the smaller shops are closed, this is your chance to sleep in, eat excessively, and do things you would only do on a Sunday.Read More
This is one of those amazing finds in any city, and Copenhagen has one of the best of the best. The Torvehallerne Market in central Copenhagen is a place to find the freshest produce, have a great cup of coffee, sip the afternoon away at one of the wine vendors, and have a smørrebrød open face style sandwich in the traditional Danish style while sipping on the local Mikkeller draft on a picnic table outside the market.Read More
Over coffee at the revered Coffee Collective in Copenhagen's über-hip Nørrebro neighbourhood, a former lawyer turned green energy broker explains to me and my American-Icelandic travel buddy that only a few years prior to this 2014 visit, Nørrebro was known for shootings and drug pushers. Some of the seedy underbelly is still visible in the neighbourhood around the crux street Jægersborggade in which we are sitting in the perfect afternoon sun.Read More
There are two reasons most come to Santorini 1.) sunsets and 2.) romance, but my reasons differ slightly. I'm here for the amazing roadside gyros and crappy moped rides along one of the world's most scenic coasts.Read More
This is the greatest bar ever! A bunch of people mill around out front chatting, smoking and basking in the glow of the dim yellow light from inside Barcelona's La Champagneria. The place is no bigger than a small coffee shop and is bursting at the seams.Read More
