A city that totally stole my heart. Without any expectiations I decided to take a trip with one of my friends and see what’s going on there. Some of my friends already told me this city is just perfect for me, I had to see that myself.. and if they were right. Full of enthusiasm I’m now writing and selecting images about this amazing city. In a few words Kopenhagen and it’s citizens are calm, friendly, creative, down to earth, colourful and fashionable. You see street art everywhere that colour the gorgeous and rich architecture throughout the city. Parks and nature around every corner. No trash or dirtiness anywhere. No rush nor stress is felt while walking down any street. People like their space and respect others’ aswell. Bikers are well respected as well and so they’ve created private bike lanes next to the broad car lanes and sidewalks. I’ve spotted a lot of gorgeous restaurants and bars with interesting menu’s and fantastic interiors. A street that has become my fav is vaernedamsvej. You’ll find the fantastic ‘playtype’ shop filled with typography posters, mugs, stationary and wonderful staff. Situated next to the fantastic ‘Rist’ coffee place, Café Central and across from Granola Restaurant. All the best of Copenhagen in one street. There are a couple of great food markets in the centre and across the river to check out, ow and don’t forget to visit the Botanical Gardens and the meatpacking district. Find some more imagery and tips on my instragram as well!

So my friend and I were having drinks in Amsterdam after a concert we went to. After a couple glasses of wine we started sharing our fantasies about destinations we wanted to go to in the near future, not being to serious about it. The next day both kinda hungover we individually thought it over, having this fanasie stuck to our brains we looked at eachother and both said the same ‘Wtf let’s book a ticket to New York and we’ll just see how to make it work moneywise!’. And that’s how we ended up in the Big Apple last week.

We decided to go as 3 besties and stayed in this tacky but well known place ‘The Roosevelt’. Got a good deal trough hotwire and it’s situated right in the centre of Manhatten. Perfecto! Now I can tell you about all the stuff we did but I’ll just share you our conclusion about New York and have you make it happen yourself one day.

Go to Brooklyn, Williamsburg and the Meatpacking district to eat, drink coffee and gin tonics, wonder around, shop and enjoy the relaxed and  young atmosphere these neighbourhoods have to offer you. Walk past the headquarters of Vice, get fashion inspired by locals biking past you and enjoy the view over Manhatten from the waterside. Go get dinner at Mogador and 5Leaves in Williamsburg. The highline is a must, together with ConeyIsland on a sunny day and don’t forget to try the fried oreo’s. Hop on the metro and get out in Soho if you want to upgrade your wardrobe with some nice items from Urban Outfitters, Topshop or American Apparel or maybe some cool sneakers from ‘Kith’. Little italy and Chinatown are definitly nice to wonder around and have a nice lunch or dinner.

What about all those famous attractions like te statue of liberty, wall street etc? Well let’s just say we saw them from a distance but there’s much more interesting stuff to do than standing in line to walk over a bridge or go see a statue. We had a blast being in this city and hopefully we can go back someday when it’s a bit warmer and the treees have leaves on them!

Up next? I decided to hang around America for a bit longer and go visit my friends in Canada as well, so next will be Montreal followed by Ottawa. stay tuned!
