Moodboard: Malta

So we have the nice weather, we have the swimsuit… now we need the destination. And after a not very nice experience this weekend in the North Sea, we’ve decided to focus again in the Mediterranean Sea. Let’s be honest: it’s the best place in the world. The weather, the landscapes, the food… Each country has such a huge cultural background that is almost imposible not to fall in love with the Mediterranean diversity and charm. Fantasizing about new destinations we came across some gorgeous images of Malta. How come have we never thought about this small country surrounded by the sea?

SP34 hotel, Copenhagen

Any visit to Copenhagen should be focus on design, excellent food and long walks or bike rides. The city has a smart casual code, is friendly yet sophisticated, open but walkable… it’s simply one of those places that makes you fall in love and think about how real life would be living there. But since travel is phantasizing, you should look for an accommodation that gives you that illusion, that makes you feel like a local in the know, that exudes the personality of the city where it’s located.  Hotel SP34 provides that experience. It will make you believe that you are one of those young, tall, smart, total black outfit wearers, cool bike Danish riders.

Together with Terence Woodgate, designer of lighting and furniture, Alba Bayona is taking jewellery to the next level.
