• Off to my next destination... ✈️🌴 // Time to switch windmills for palmtrees! Today I’m travelling to Curaçao for another holiday this month. Really looking forward to explore the island and to get an impression of the Carribean lifestyle 🌞 Will keep you guys posted about my stay in my IG-stories. In the meantime, the Copenhagen series will still continue ;) • | Tårnet, Copenhagen
• One thing I noticed straight away once I arrived in Copenhagen: design is everywhere. From small products you can find in shops to huge buildings, the Danes pay remarkable attention to many things they craft and create. Public spaces like playgrounds are next level and a lot of attention is payed to details when it comes to styling shops & restaurants. In Glyptoteket, I stumbled upon many design students and artists drawing their surroundings. Especially the lady in this picture catched my attention: all the people passing by didn’t distracted her. She was focused, determined and at ease.. 🖋💭 • | Glyptoteket, Copenhagen
• All the way up... 🕊 (Tip: for the best panoramic view of the city, visit Tårnet tower! Entry is free, you don’t need to climb many stairs and the view is 😍) • | Tårnet Tower, Copenhagen
• Share your favourite (art)museum with me in the comments! It’s always nice to get inspired ✨😊 • | Glyptoteket, Copenhagen
• Rainbow road in real life... ✨ // This has to be one of my favourite streets in the city. What would it be like to live here in one of these colorful houses? 😍 • | Magstræde, Copenhagen
• Falling in love with this city was quite easy.. 💛 // I wrote a new blogpost about 10 sights you should defenitly check out during a trip to Copenhagen! (link in bio) Obviously including this beautiful harbour 🤗 • | Nyhavn, Copenhagen

Last week the preparations for one of the biggest festivities of the year started: Chinese New Year. To experience this event, we went to Chinatown, the best place to get a good impression of the celebrations in London. Not many of people know this about me, but my grandmother is Chinese so that makes me a quarter Chinese. This is one of the reasons why I was even more excited to visit Chinatown. I was totally amazed by the huge amount of red lanterns which were spread all across the streets. People were selling all kinds of fortune decorations and snacks, said their prayers and I even spotted someone in a big Pikachu costume (very Chinese, I know..). We had dinner in this area and it was definitely a good choice. After strolling along a lot of restaurants, we finally picked one and ordered fried rice and pancakes filled with roasted duck and veggies. Yum! To everyone who is celebrating this weekend: Happy Chinese New Year // Gong Xi Fat Choi!
