“Hygge” in Copenhagen

Even though it was cold and rainy I had a very good time in Copenhagen visiting friends, walking around the city without getting “hit” by a bike, admiring the colourful houses, drinking coffee… it was “hyggeligt”! ( cosy in Danish)

I went to the top of the Round tower (Rundtaarn) which was built as an observatory and which offers wonderful views over the city.

I went to my favorite pizza place in Copenhagen which is Tino’s located in the area called “Christianshavn”. Buy a pizza there and find a spot next to the canals…and it will be “hyggeligt”!

Summer album 2016

It was in September and it was three weeks of nice summer vacations…
1.I spent the first week in Denmark where I lived before moving back to France. It was a pleasure to go back to the beautiful Danish beaches, walk on the fine soft sand, breathe some fresh air, enjoy beautiful sunshine…
