LOL, the tape measure was a very useful tool when deciding on who was closest to the little white ball.
Here I am with two guys from the pre-launch winning team (above). Ole in the middle is playing in ManBand, top 5 finalist in this year’s Danish X-factor aka Britain’s Got Talent. How I did in the contest? (O; Well, I made it to the second round, but then my team was defeated by a power team from Eastern Europe.

Well, hello there, couldn’t stand for Martir’s message in my inbox.
… wishing everyone a beautiful day in the most happiest place of the world Copenhagen. I hope someone will make my dream come true!
Remembering myself when moving from abroad to Copenhagen, how dependent I was in the beginning on the help from others. Luckily the Danish Norwegian student union helped me with a place to stay during my first months in Copenhagen; a sweet co-student who let me sleep on a mattress in her living room, in a tiny student apartment.
Now I kind of want to return that favor, and share Martir’s wish – hoping that one of you blog readers can make his dream come true:

Well, hello there ;) Hope you enjoy your Easter Break! If you happen to be in Copenhagen – and don’t know what to do, here’s a few options:
1. Go have fun in Tivoli Gardens
Tivoli Gardens just opened their summer season for 2014 – and is a terrific playground for playful children and grownups.
2. Easter flea market
Love vintage and antiques? Then I suggest you spend some easter hours at the annual flea market in Copenhagen Forum.
Connect with nature almost in the middle of Copenhagen and say hello to the sweet easter baby animals!
Happy Easter :)
Peace & Love,
… Katharina Martiny :) She wants to spend the spare money for not having to pay for her lunch, on a Copenhagen tattoo, to show the world where her heart really lies at. Congrats, Katharina, with the free lunches – and by the way, would love to see that tattoo, when you have got it done someday (O;
Oh, we had 7 more lovely contestants for the Fredco’s Deli gift voucher valued at DKK 450:

Now sharing my love for Copenhagen with you – in an ebook!
Have been asked quite a few times:
Well, since you’re a Copenhagen blogger, you must know all the hidden gems: Where should we go?
;) So, why should this be a 1-1 secret? I’d like to share it with all people heading for wondercool Copenhagen… in an ebook.
Just like I told my Belfast friend and co-blogger Jeff, blogger at Belfast Times – check out the blog, when I met him and his friend in Copenhagen last summer: You really should head for Copenhagen Latin Quarter! They did, too, and they had a great time (O:
Hey, what is Copenhagen Latin Quarter – really? According to wikipedia:
… a neighbourhood in central, Copenhagen, Denmark. It is bounded by Nørregade to the west, Vestergade to the south, Vester Voldgade to the east and Nørre Voldgadeto the north. The name refers to the Latin language, which was once widely spoken in and around the University, whose historic home is situated on the other side of Nørregade. Most of the student life has now been relocated to four new campuses but the area is still known for its lively atmosphere with an abundance of boutiques, cafés and night clubs…
Release date of the ebook: Sooooon – now entirely up to iStore & Amazon!
Peace & Love,
Ps. Photo from my upcoming ebook – there’s some great Danish pastry in one of the local streets, Matti and friend have a hold of it:

I love living in Copenhagen. But Barcelona, Milan – and Porto… never been to Porto, but would like to go there someday. Maybe soon, that’s up to KIA to decide ;)
