Our favorite European neighbourhoods

We are lucky enough to have visited some of the most wonderful European cities more than once. The truth is that when one place fascinates us we can’t help but coming back to discover more about it. That’s how we have found our favorite areas in cities like London, Copenhagen, Paris and Venice. The reasons why we prefer these neighbourhoods are diverse: it could be a local vibe, a different atmosphere, a big concentration of nice restaurants or shops or a unique charm that simply appeals to us. Castello, Venice This is probably my favorite place in the world. The most authentic sestier of Venice, where you can get lost in the tiniest streets and practically see no one, contemplate in silence the wonderful canals and enjoy the little bit of real life that is still fighting the hordes of tourists in Venice. Here you can find our favorite accommodation in Venice, Residenze Cortenova, and one of our favorite restaurants as well, La Oliva Nera. Even though this area is not as impressive as others, it feels …

10 Instagram accounts to follow if you love Copenhagen

This time of the year is a wonderful moment to visit Copenhagen. It may sound strange but this is the best season to experience the über famous hygge at its best. The city is quiet and extremely cold, but the dusty pastel colours of the buildings and the candle lights shining in almost every window make the atmosphere almost magical. There is also a very important reason to plan a Copenhagen getaway before the Spring comes: the black kale with fried egg and sorrel at Geist. We’ve mentioned it a few times already, we know, but allow us to insist: it’s absolutely delicious.

Top travel moments 2016

The year is coming to an end and it’s time to look back. Instead of making a compilation of our trips this year, we wanted to revisit those special moments that we’ve experienced. Those instants, minutes or tiny lapses of time when we forgot everything else and felt truly happy. The feelings that are worth the trouble, the reasons why travel heals your soul… The moment we entered our cosy apartment in Copenhagen after a whole day of exploring in January. That satisfaction of discovering new places and being awfully but happily tired with red, burning ears from the freezing wind. The moment we saw the most wonderfully starry sky in Mallorca, which took us completely by surprise and made us remember, both with joy and sadness, those who were not with us anymore. The moment we couldn’t stop laughing during our walk on the Thames Path with our friends after a wonderful brunch in a local cafe. We catched our breath, looked up and saw a wonderful view of the city on one side …

A day in Copenhagen

Our day started early with unexpected heavy rain and furious wind. We dedicated a couple of hours to sip our coffee and read. Lazily we decided to get out, even though the weather was not promising. However, the idea of a whole day lost in the streets of Copenhagen was appealing, in spite of the weather, any weather.

Corallo, Copenhagen

From a chic restaurant in Madrid to a fancy lobster bar in Copenhagen. If last week we showed you where to have a nice lunch in the most elegant neighborhood of Madrid, today we share with you a great option to rest during your Copenhagen shopping spree.

Copenhagen cruise

Copenhagen is a wonderful city that never cease to amaze us. Every time we’ve visited the Danish capital we’ve discovered new corners, restaurants, shops and things to do. A couple of weeks ago we got up early, wrapped up and headed to Nyhavn to board in a little cruise that showed us a majestic Copenhagen that we’d never seen before. 

Cock’s and Cows

Do you remember when we visited Copenhagen back in May? We stayed at the wonderful SP34 hotel. We had a great time but we didn’t get the chance of trying the award-winning burgers of the restaurant located in the hotel, Cock’s and Cows. Finally, a couple of weeks ago during our last holidays in Copenhagen, we had lunch in the first Cock’s and Cows that opened its doors in Copenhagen. Their success was so big that they have now opened two more branches in the city (one of them placed in the aforementioned SP34 hotel and the other one located in Osterbro district). We wanted to see where everything started, so one windy, cold Friday we took shelter in this cool restaurant and finally tried its burgers. Of course we took some pictures, if you’d like to see…

Tivoli, Copenhagen

Even though we have visited Copenhagen several times we never had the chance to spend a joyful day at Tivoli Gardens, the amusement park that has been there to make every adult and child in Copenhagen happy since 1843. During a few hours we were amazed by a wonderful little world of fantasy hidden in the center of the city. Here you have a few pictures of our the afternoon when we felt like childs again…

Almanak, Copenhagen

We are back from Copenhagen, where we have spent the most amazing ten days. We’ve had wonderful walks by the water, we’ve discovered new corners, we’ve been inspired by the always beautiful Danish design and we’ve eaten fantastic food, for Copenhagen is home of some of our favourites restaurants. And this one in particular, Almanak, was one of the highlights of our trip.
