If one of you lovely blog readers help Martir find a job, I will do like Klaus here this upcoming Copenhagen winter… ;)

Well, hello there, couldn’t stand for Martir’s message in my inbox.

martir

… 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:

Dear CPH Blonde readers,

Looking for jobs in: Restaurants, construction or anything else available. Have a driving licence, category B and C.

About me: My name is Martir from Macedonia – currently a master degree student in civil law at SEEU in Tetovo. I would like to live and work in Copenhagen for a few months.

Highly motivated, enthusiastic, dedicated, openminded, outgoing, communicative, team player.

Computer skills: Internet, Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint.
Hobbies: Tennis, swimming, basketball and soccer.

Hey, if you can help Martir, please contact him on martiriseni@gmail.com or +38 971217718.

 

Have a fabulous week, Copenhagen Friend (O:

Peace & Love,

i love Copenhagen

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:

belfast times

Hey, what is Copenhagen Latin Quarter – really? According to wikipedia:

… a neighbourhood in central, CopenhagenDenmark. It is bounded by Nørregade to the west, Vestergade to the south, Vester Voldgade to the east and Nørre Voldgadeto the north.[1] 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,
a-g

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:
