The main entrance

Where I spent most of the time with my CNN crew

Well, hello there ;) Yesterday was a blast. Meeting up with CNN film crew Miles and Rob at SAS Radisson Hotel. Heading for exploring fabulous Copenhagen lifestyle – street and bike wise!

CNN photo crew

My CNN crew Miles and Rob. Amazing guys. Clever, easygoing and superb company to hang out with – for hours!

After a start-up photo shoot in my beloved latin quarter, we make the final interview, filming and photos in Freetown Christiania. I tell CNN about how bicycling affects my Copenhagen blogger life, my opinion on why bicycling is part of the Copenhagener’s life – did you know, more than 50% of the CPH commuters travel to work or school by bike. The report will be on CNN in about a month, will keep you posted here on the blog.

Well, let the photos speak for themselves…

You have a WONDERFUL weekend – thanks for reading along!

Peace & Love,

Ready gooo! Here I am, 10 am this morning at Kongens Nytorv. Ripe & ready for supporting our heart association together with OTA Solgryn – by running a heart shaped path.

And ha ha, here I am 40 minutes and almost 7 km later:

You can join the campaign, too, and join us in making a heartily difference. Here’s how:

The path is beautiful. Love it; being a fitbird and enjoying the many sights of wonderful Copenhagen at the same time (O: Here’s a few photos from my run – just scroll down… Taking the path walking is also a good idea. Counts too in the donation!

Wishing you a FABULOUS day.

Peace & Love,

Well, hello there ;) Tomorrow I will put on my purple running shoes and head for a not-so-long heart shaped running path – in the middle of Copenhagen.

And you are going to join me…? (O:

Why? Because for every heart shaped path we run, Danish oat meal producer Solgryn will support our national heart association with DKK 5. The name of the campaign is Elsk Hjertet – love your heart. If we are many, it can add up to quite an amount of well spent money.

Where – start and finish: Kongens Nytorv Metro, Copenhagen – map right here
When: Tomorrow – Wednesday September 10th at 10 am.

 

I know it’s short notice, but I hope some of you will have the opportunity to join me for a fun, fit and meaningful run!

More info on the blog tomorrow after the run – and hey, if you’re not able to join me, you can always take a run by yourself…

Peace & love,

SO Cycle Chic in the rain

Well, hello there ;) Guess who contacted me yesterday: The Cable News Network – CNN! They will make a report on bicycle friendly Copenhagen, and ask me to assist them in the report. I’d love to, and I already have a few ideas I’d like to present to their camera crew.

So – now I may have to start taking acting classes if I keep on receiving invitations like this…

Then Ryslinge Højskole located at Fyn could be an option. The school offers theater and movie acting classes.

It’s a one year long course – aah, I need to stay in Copenhagen and blog. But I wouldn’t mind, seriously, to spend a few days, travel a couple of hours outside Copenhagen, explore my inner actress. Haha, maybe even get her out!

Peace & Love,

Sunshiny day 2 #copenhagenjustnow

Morning rush bicycling in Inner City Copenhagen demands concentration…

Well, hello there ;) On my way to my new blogger’s office headquarter at Kongens Nytorv, in the middle of Copenhagen city – agh, my first day today in the new office, I’m so excited!

IMG_6998.JPG

Love it! Splendid view to Copenhagen lifestyle at Gothersgade. I’ll definitely spend a few hours on this window sofa.

Passed Nørreport Station on my way, and here’s a few photo highlights I’d love to share with you. Copenhagen is just so inspiring, every way you look. The atmosphere is friendly, cool, informal… you go on, Copenhagen friend (O:

Inside The Home of a Copenhagener

JDW_Amager-1

Ever wondered what it looks like – inside of a typical Copenhagen apartment house like this? Jan De Wilde and Magnum photographer Olivia Arthur decided to find out…

From the outside all the buildings are the same. But when I talked to the people who live there, I recognized an enormous diversity and sense of solidarity. Everybody I spoke to talked about how much they like living there and that they all have a lot of family history which started there long ago. Many families and relatives live in the same building. Everybody shares a connection and communal place.
– Jan De Wilde

I think the photos are amazing. The apartments reveal the genuine personality of many Copenhageners; relaxed, openminded – with a sense of minimalistic and cool style. What do you think? Enjoy :)

Peace & Love,

JDW_Amager-3

LOL – typical informal Copenhagenish: Airing out the comforter in public. The Danish way of laundry lines between the Italian houses!

JDW_Amager-21

Small ceramic and glass animals. My immediate guess here is this particular apartment belongs to an elderly Copenhagen lady.

JDW_Amager-22

Young guy cooking. The average Copenhagen kitchen is typically small and narrow – the square meters are in favor of the living room.

JDW_Amager-23

Copenhagen guy chilling in a typical Danish sofa; soft and in neutral colors, pimped by a colorful sofa cushion.

JDW_Amager-24

Classic Copenhagenish: Wooden floors – NO wall to wall carpets, please. And a designer chair.

JDW_Amager-2

Love it! The general subtle colors of the houses are often mixed with a bright facade.

Nat, me and Sofie – smiling to the bartender? :D

Hello there ;) Last night sipping – well, haha, I mean slurping cocktails at Ruby was a blast, and right now when writing this post I’m so tired. And SO happy! It’s all worth the hangover to party big time with good friends.

IMG_6910.JPG

Yummie!! This drink is named Pisco Sour – not too sweet and deliciously slightly bitter.

Party chicks come ooon: Sanne, Dulle and Mille. Mille by the way designs the most lovely luxury scarves – have a look:

Hey, back to the drinks! More coming up, and now the bartender starts looking a little diffused…

What shoes to wear for my new Toyota AYGO

Well, hello there ;) I’d say Armani…

My Armanis & I ready for work at the blog office! #armani #loveshoes

I just texted AYGO to 1919 on my phone, and if I win this brand new colorful smartly designed little car, I’d go for a red one. Of course, LOL – like in my logo.

Yep, came to think of what matters most to me when choosing a car; it’s color and design. Is this a woman thing? I don’t care to know too much about the power of the engine and so on (well, haha, it has to be fast), but I also do care about my car being environmental friendly. Which goes for this new Toyota AYGO.

Crossing my fingers for me winning the car. And hey, Toyota, if you read this blog post, don’t hesitate to contact me for a sponsored car. I could extend my blogger’s work area from Copenhagen Inner City to 20 miles outside Copenhagen. And travel nicely around with my bright red AYGO CPH BLONDEish car. Hey, well, at least consider it (;

Peace & Love,
