November in Copenhagen


November has been wet and grey. The perfect weather to stay inside and watch TV series. Joost and I got addicted to Homeland. In the Netherlands, they add a few new words to the dictionary every year. This year ‘comakijken’  is in the race to become the word of 2013. Never heard about it, but I think we are getting close to be called ‘comawatchers’ after our TV serie marathons.

And yes, there were some beautiful days full of sunshine too! Together with our friends, we went to Dyrehaven. Finally finally finally, I saw those deer that I wanted to see for a long time. I had seen beautiful pictures from this place and guess what: I forgot to bring my camera. So I used my smartphone to make this video. Sorry for my shaking hand, we had to walk backwards as my enthusiasm got me a bit too close to the deer…


Strolling down design markets – Blickfang Copenhagen


This weekend, I had a lovely get together with my mum and two sisters! Next to all the talking and wine drinking, we visited the international design exhibition Blickfang. All the nice furniture, jewellery and fashion from young and international designers were eye-catchers. These are my favorites:

Grow it yourself – a kitchen treat


Living on the the 4th floor demands some of your creativity to grow your own food. There is no garden or balcony in our house, so I had to make a free spot inside. I found mine in the kitchen to start this project ‘de kisttuin’.

A traditional Danish lunch – smørrebrød


No matter where you’re traveling, I think having local food & drinks are always a good way to learn more about cultures. Besides, there is nothing better than having a good chat with friends while having new food experiences. So if you’re visiting Denmark, eating smørrebrød is a must.

Smørrebrød is an open face sandwich with some traditional toppings. Shrimps & eggs, herring in curry sauce and potato salad are some of the favorites. You’ll find smørrebrød everywhere in and around Copenhagen. As the quality varies, it’s worth it to pick a good spot. Schønnemann has been operating since 1877! The new owners kept the traditional look of the restaurant and they keep the smørrebrød tradition alive!
