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 […]

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 new favourite Miami hotel – MONDRIAN South Beach

We always try to escape Scandinavia during the month of November… This year we spent our November holiday in Miami, followed by another great Celebrity cruise. South Beach is our favourite place to stay in Miami and this time around we wanted to stay on the bay side and booked MONDRIAN South Beach, already in February. […]

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 […]

Why not spoil yourself properly at Hotel Frederiksminde?

We recently visited this gem for the second time and it was just as lovely as we remembered it. Hotel Frederiksminde is a small and cosy, yet elegant hotel, situated in the cosy town of Præstø, which is about an hour and a half drive from Copenhagen (100 km. – but lots of roadwork along the way…). […]

Deliciously 222 SW Bar & Grill – a MUST visit on Gran Canaria!

One good thing, and probably the only good thing about a wedding anniversary in the month of November, is that you’ll always have a good reason to travel….. Last year, we celebrated our first anniversary with a “Dining by design” dinner by Anantara in Thailand – simply amazing. This year, while enjoying some relaxed days on […]

Gran Canaria – somehow timeless and still going strong

We just spent a week on the Spanish island of Gran Canaria (in the Atlantic outside Morocco). The “traditional” main tourist destination for Scandinavians since the 60’s.   It was meant to be a nice, quiet and calm week, with plenty of time to relax. I like the island mostly for two reasons; -Lots of […]

Marina Bay Sands (Singapore)

After a week in Thailand, we flew from Bangkok to Singapore and spent 4 days here to finish off our holiday. Having read about, as well as watched photos and tv-programs about Marina Bay Sands, we had decided to stay there long before we booked the holiday. I only have one word for this stunning […]
