San Francisco – The (foggy) City By The Bay

I’ve had the pleasure of visiting San Francisco a couple of times during the last 3 years. It’s a beautifully located city and the approach when arriving by air is stunning! The bay and the city… Alcatraz island and the famous Golden Gate Bridge. THE BEST WAY TO GET TO SAN FRANCISCO We’ve been flying […]

Tomorrow can (so) wait at the Jumeirah Zabeel Saray

We recently spent 4 nights at this amazing beach hotel in Dubai, Jumeirah Zabeel Saray. I seriously don’t know how to describe it properly as no words, not even superlatives, seem to be enough. Imagine you’re part of an Arabian adventure, in a beautiful palace, in beautiful surroundings, plenty of gorgeous food and on top of all […]

It’s all so delicious…. at the Nimb in Copenhagen

The small, exclusive boutique hotel Nimb, with the perfect location in/next to Tivoli gardens now offers a full year weekend brunch. We were very lucky to be allocated a really nice table by the window, overlooking Tivoli gardens – which is one of my favorite landmarks in town. I had the previous brunch buffet at […]

I ♥ NY. A lot.

Top of the list, Head of the heap, King of the hill…… New York, Neeeeeeeew Yooooooork….. I love New York. I can’t think of any other big city that I’d choose to travel to if I could choose… It has everything that you can wish for and then it’s like walking around in a movie….the different […]

“Rustik Elegans och Jordnära Njutning” at Ästad Vingård

This gorgeous place uses the slogan “Rustik Elegans och Jordnära Njutning“, which is really difficult to translate into English but meaning something like “Enjoy nature’s basic elements combined with rustic elegance“. It does sound better in Swedish, but once you’ve visited this amazing place, you’ll understand the meaning of it. Until 4 months ago, I […]

Amaaaaazing Thailand… Bangkok and Koh Yao Yai

We love holidaying in Thailand and keep coming back again, and again….. Last time, we chose to fly from Copenhagen on Qatar Airways, via Doha. It was nice with halfway break at the new airport in Doha. Great facilities like free (fast) wi-fi, great shops (like Lindt chocolates pick & mix… and Tiffany…), good food […]

Barcelona

We recently spent some days in Barcelona,as an extension to a 7-night western Mediterranean cruise with Celebrity Cruises. Apart from the food, we love this city as it has everything…. a cosmopolitan feeling, great shopping, plentiful beautiful architecture, a beach, a lovely old town, great tapas restaurants and so on…. The city has become very […]

Strip House (Manhattan Midtown)

The Strip House (Midtown branch) is a MUST visit restaurant if you’re into great steaks. For a Scandinavian (and probably for some others too…..), the name doesn’t immediately leads you to a restaurant. However, it is indeed one of the best restaurant experiences. Ever. And anywhere in the world. We were very lucky to get a table […]

My Wonderful Copenhagen

After returning from my 16 years abroad in 2008, I think that I now can call “Dronningens By” (The Queen’s town), Copenhagen, “my” town, despite being a citizen of the country on the other side of the Øresund strait… I always said that the best thing about living n Copenhagen is that it’s very close […]

Enjoying life like Royalty in the Queens’ town…….

We recently visited London…. Until 2009, I had only “visited” London in the sense that I’d been transferring at LHR without really coming anywhere near the city of London 🙂 It’s a marvellous city and I simply can not believe we don’t travel there more often as we’re just about an hour away by plane….
