Who needs white, sandy beaches when you have perfect, sunny weather and nice temperatures in England and Denmark these days…? Well, guess we wouldn’t mind a trip to more exotic distant skies, but unfortunately that’s not scheduled for now. Hope you had a great Easter! Below are some snapshots from the last couple of weeks.

This weekend, Pernille and I were reunited in London. As my previous post indicates, spring has arrived in the English capital – temperatures above 15 C and blossom everywhere.

Les Trois Garçons & Lounge Lover, London

I was doing some research for a project at work and came across the bar Lounge Lover, which I’ve visited a few times when I was living in London. I’m sure the place still is excellent. However, the interior design is the main attraction for me – I would call it ‘crazy cosiness’ :) Lounge...
