I am writing this well rested because just over a week ago we gathered our belongings, said goodbye to our raucous friends outside Cosy Bar, nimbly avoided all the inevitable vomit hazards from the night before, and hopped in a taxi to our new place. En route the taxi driver picked up on Ant's interest in an advert for … Continue reading Flytte hus
Hej venner! In a previous post, Carla hinted at the existence of some other mermaid statues around Copenhagen, but claimed her journalistic integrity would not allow her to dignify them by including photos. Luckily I shed all vestiges of integrity a long way back so here are the pics! This first one looks like the sort of … Continue reading Flere havfruer
Everyone is going to think I spend all my time skulking around the bins, but this is a really important update on the last post so I'll take that risk... Great news! We've finally worked out which bin the flamingos go in: Thank god. They were really starting to pile up in here, and the shrimp … Continue reading Flere skrald tegn!
This post is dedicated to the people who have stoically read this blog and kindly asked whether København is really as pretty as the photos would imply. Yes! Of course it is. It's super smukke*. Would I lie to you, on the internet of all places? I will, however, show you what the majority of my mad photography … Continue reading Billedet og virkeligheden
OH EM GEE you guys - it's finally the day! No, thank YOU, eternally captivating furniture delivery video... Given that our shipping container doesn't arrive until tomorrow, this will be the only piece of furniture we actually have at this point. Scandi minimalism - totally nailing it.
Yesterday we spent around five hours trapped in IKEA on a Saturday, only to find they didn't have the main thing we went looking for. It was ok though because we had meatballs (kødboller) and found out that we could just order everything online without needing to drag it off shelves or pack it in a … Continue reading Gåture i sne-regn
This week we made the most of Noma's sabbatical in Sydney by heading to the restaurant that is temporarily taking over the Noma space in its absence - 108. Close, but not quite Noma... As much as our general health has been improved by Anthony's latest extreme dietary regime, it was nice to get out … Continue reading 108 at Noma
Københavns Havn (actually it's name, not a typo) looked pretty good walking home from Islands Brygge on a very cold but very still night last week.
Before we even had the keys to our new place we panicked about living without a couch, so went out and found a suitably Scando one. You can learn all about this magical experience by watching this video that I got sent today. It's really up there as being one of the strangest things I've ever received. Enjoy. … Continue reading Kongens Have
Our weekend of loosely structured house hunting happened to coincide with Fastelavn. It is a religious festival in Scandinavia that has its origins in Carnival and Lent - sadly my complete lack of religious education* prevents me from shedding any more light on the matter than that. We were, however, filled with born again religious fervor to celebrate Fastelavn when we … Continue reading Fastelavn på Christianshavn
