Getting back from holiday: In process –> Idea: Travelling

Long time no see! I just returned from holidays and I am still in denial phase! I have taken a huge break from blogging but I definitely enjoyed summer. Now ready for a harsh winter! I can’t say I care, since I had such a great time! I visited 2 Greek islands (Santorini and Mykonos) and went through northern Greece as well, so plenty of photos and reviews for the next posts to come! For more news, check my instagram!

See you until new post or vi ses (as Danish people say for ‘see you’)!

That is my image of Greece when I leave! Wind, sun, sea and a million landscapes all lying in front of your eyes :)

Spoiling under the sun with a brunch –> Idea: Entertainment

I can’t even begin to describe in how many places I have been lately for brunch and breakfast…I have been incredibly busy to find time to make a detailed post, but at least I will try to come back with some info and photos of the places I’ve been!

Sneak peek of moments from my Saturday’s brunch! Sunday’s on another post :D

 

Weekends are equal to food and relaxation in my mind so I hope you will at least see the first one in my pictures!

This weekend’s brunch took place in Cafe Bang & Jensen, situated in Istedgade close to Vesterbro and Enghave. My experience from this place is that of a typical danish cafe: for some reason Danish cafe owners like to promote the very very old style for the decoration, meaning if something is as damaged as possible then it’s good. I actually did not take pictures of the inside, but you will see this in most Danish cafes: if a chair is damaged then it’s a keeper. If something is rusty, it gives some sort of vintage style. In other countries cafes tend to be as modern as possible, and you would expect to see that in Denmark, due to the nordic modern design etc, but nope, no way.

Anyway, take a look at the food!

Beautiful flowers and the breakfast menu. You get this leaflet and you have to fill in what you want to be included in your plate.

Juice, green citrus tea and lemonade.

Sandwich with black sesame (!) and potato salad (I think).

Finally my breakfast-brunch included: green citrus tea, cheese, ham, marmelade, pain au chocolat, pine apple, grapes, small bread, butter, egg (you choose how you want it to be done), rye bread and musli with milk.

Torvehallerne-enjoying little treats–>Idea: Entertainment

Enjoying a cup of coffee and a hot chocolate in Torvehallerne, mini market buildings but filled with gourmet suggestions and not the usual danish treats. Here at one of the cafes inside, enjoying a cappuccino, hot chocolate, apple pie and my top-favourite danish dessert (I buy it everywhere I go) hindbærsnitte.

I have even made a list of the best hindbærsnitte to buy (just ask if you need)!

Northern star- Alexandroupoli, Greece –> Idea: Travelling, Photography

It’s when you leave a place that you get to appreciate it. This is what I am missing right now.

The harbour close to the lighthouse. Ideal for relaxing in the day or enjoying a beer during a summer evening.

Lighthouse on the main road parallel to the beach. Filled with cafes, it turns into a lively pedestrian street during summer nights.

Malmø getaway- Lilla torg –> Idea: Travelling

Malmø Lilla Torg Square during a weekend in a spring. I was happily surprised by the Swedes in this small city, enjoying their beer or coffee under the sun for hours.

Memories of Stockholm –> Idea: Travelling

Here at the same cafe as previous post (Kaffekoppen) in Storgatan square in Stockholm, Sweden. Somehow, the architecture behind reminds me of nostalgic landscapes. I have seen similar buildings in Corfu and Xanthi, both in Greece.

Learning by the Swedes: Enjoying chocolate and raspberry pie at Kaffekoppen –> Idea: Travelling

Enjoying a hot cup of chocolate on a spring sunny day. In scandinavia, sunny days are treasured and it is not uncommon to see people sitting outdoors covered by blankets. Here at Stortorget square at a cafe called Kaffekoppen.

In Stortorget square you will find quite a few cafes and a museum. It is always quite crowded and wonderful to walk.

This is one of my 2 favourite chocolates I have ever tried (the other one in Greece). Amazing taste complemented by wonderful raspberry pie.

Nordic design and decoration –> Idea: Decoration

Wandering around Copenhagen at night and gazing at what seems to me as Danish design or at least Nordic or Scandinavian, I would say. It certainly differs from the rest of Europe and is mostly characterized as modern and simple.
