A Tropical Winter Weekend in New York City
We weren’t expecting a heatwave when we arrived in New York City in January, but that’s what we got. We abandoned our jackets, scarves and gloves to take a stroll in Central Park in short sleeves. We walked the Highline, checked out the Whitney Museum and Hudson Yards and enjoyed some great food in Hell’s Kitchen.
Rome – A Foodie’s Paradise
When we went to Rome, we took a food tour in the fascinating neighbourhood of Testaccio, an area with a rich history of food culture. From pasta to pizza, delicious treats galore were on the menu and we were so glad we had skipped breakfast!
Festive Spirit in Copenhagen
A festive city break took us to Copenhagen in Denmark, where we wandered through the Christmas Markets and explored the beautifully decorated Tivoli Gardens. We paid a visit to The Little Mermaid, strolled in colourful Nyhavn and were intrigued by the independent community of Christiania with its street art, eco-houses and aroma of pot wafting in the air. Frequent cups of glogg kept us going. Copenhagen is a great place to visit at any time of the year, but at Christmas, it’s truly magical.
