There is of course no excuse for being bloggers that don’t blog.. But there is no excuse for being a blogger and blog about things without passion either.
So we blog - about things that matter to us.
We are Copenhagen girls, Eva & me. Sometimes I forget to be grateful for Copenhagen - my city of residence. Somehow it has it all. Proximity to everything, the possibility to be hidden and go unnoticed if that’s what you want and if you are up for doing something - without a clear idea on what that something should be, you can in Copenhagen, always!
Always when I answer a questionnaire or we do an interview or something of that sort we are asked about Copenhagen: What do you love about Copenhagen, What do you hate about Copenhagen and What is a perfect saturday in Copenhagen. Truth be told a perfect day doesn’t happen without you making it perfect. A perfect day could be a day spent by yourself reading in bed or a day of pic-nic in the park surrounded by all your friends and family. That same day could also be terrible if you don’t have the right mindset.
Coming back from London last week I was grateful to be back in small Copenhagen. Where I can get everywhere with just my green thunder of a bike… Instead of spending hours in buses, trains, tubes and walking you are always 10 minutes away on a bike, or at least in my world where real time is not of much relevance. London is lovely though, and coming from the dwarf metropol, Reykjavik I always appreciate the tubes and the double deck buses, they make me smile.
To remind me to be grateful for Copenhagen, I’m starting a quest… It revolves around seeing as much and experiencing as much of the city as possible this year. I feel inspired to write about this scandinavian pearl and it’s hidden gems.
We tend to get stuck to our wonderful neighbourhood as it has many things worth sticking to. Now we want see more and we will write about; the things we see, the food we eat, the floor we dance on or the park we visit.
To kickstart this new explore Copenhagen frenzy we went on an Ampersand date this saturday.
We visited a spanish tapas restaurant in Vesterbro called Meson España. We were pleasantly surprised by this basement on Viktoriagade, firstly we had no reservation but they made space for us. Odd looking art on the walls low ceilings, candle lights and spanish music everything came together, just the right amount of tacky made it perfect. The guy greeting us was of course spanish - which makes all spanish restaurants more believable and the chef also spoke english with the most charming spanish accent, more points there. They were a little sceptical about our strange eating restrictions but did a wonderful job catering to our needs.
All in all a very pleasant evening in even more pleasant company. We really recommend the Meson España, and if the quest wasn’t about trying as many new things as possible we would go there again :)
