Of course I am often asked how it’s like to live in Copenhagen. And although the differences with the Dutch culture and cities aren’t that big, I have to say there is a lot to appreciate in this city. I would like to share my view and favorite spots in and around Copenhagen at poppies & feathers. I will start with one of my favorite streets in Nørrebro; Elmegade. If you are interested in an objective vision: watch the video of Monocle where they spotlight Copenhagen as the nr 1 Quality of life city.
After living in Copenhagen for already one year, it’s time to let my friends in Amsterdam enjoy the beauty and fun of Scandinavian products too. I will open a temporary shop in the city center of Amsterdam were we will present all handmade, Scandinavian products.
Strolling down the shops at Østerbrogade in Copenhagen led us to this fantastic ice shop called Olufs. All their ice cream is everyday made of fresh milk, the best chocolate and perfectly combining toppings!
Call it the end of Europe’s winter or the beginning of an early spring, we made a trip to Kiruna in the Northern Sweden by the end of March to catch the seasons last snow. Although it was just a few degrees above 0 °C, there was more than enough snow to build an entire new city of snice (combination snow and ice) in stead of just the famous ICEHOTEL. Actually, it might be an idea for Kiruna to consider as they are planning to move the city elsewhere in Sweden. The reason for that is because the ground under Kiruna holds the worlds largest iron ore deposit so if the mining continues, they need to move the city entirely or it will collapse.
