  • Thursday MTB Fun

    Some postcards from the tracks. Shredding like a girl. It’s muddy and exceptionally hard after winter break, but oh so funny and rewarding. Though not so sure how my neighbors like me washing the bike in the laundry room…

    This week the bike got a nice fix in a local bike shop, even though it should be a time to learn how to fix the bike by myself. This would come cheaper and less dangerous; now I can’t get out of my head the very beautiful vintage Bianchi I saw in the shop’s back corner… The family is definitely missing a road racer.

    When it comes biking and traveling, I’m now counting the euros, wondering if it would be possible to do a combined late season skiing, early season biking trip up north, or maybe the wisest would be to just declare the winter over and head south with my bike; for some sun, sea and sand…

    Any tips for budget friendly biking locations in Europe?

  • Copenhagen Favourite – Louisiana Museum of Modern Art

    Tiina Kivelä

    Louisiana Museum of Modern Art is a Copenhagen classic which isn’t even located in Copenhagen.* Easily reachable from the city though. It hosts interesting and thought provoking art ( both the permanent collections and temporary exhibitions ) + excellent museum shop and café –highly recommended then.  I’ve seen Picasso there, and many more, but what I’m personally most fascinated about in Louisiana is the space I call the Giacometti room.**

    The thing with that space is the combination of the view, the art and the sculptures, but also and most remarkably the architecture of the space itself; reminding me of the many buildings I spend time as a (art student) kid.

    It’s a place where I feel very home. Where I feel like I belong.
