• 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.

  • May I Have Some Bread With My Mussels, Please

    Tiina Kivelä

    Oh Scandinavia, Finland and Musling;

    when do you learn to serve some bread with your moules (mussels) ?

    It’s a pity you serve great moules (mussels) in great broths, but haven’t thought how nice it would be

    to dip the bread in the broth when all the moules are gone.

    You can leave the frits to Belgium, but bread… Always serve bread. Please.

    Moules: MuslingLinnésgade 14, 1361 København K

    Bread: nowhere to be seen

  • Post Copenhagen

    Tiina Kivelä

    Hello. It’s been a while. I’ve tried to settle my mind after the Brussels (which’s both personally and travel professionally touching subject for me) and traveled to Copenhagen for Easter Holiday; to taste the happiest place on earth. And it should go without saying that Copenhagen was as lovely as always. It’s the love of my life, after all. And if I understood right, it’s now the love of my travel companion’s too. Luckily, cities aren’t monogamous though.

    Now I’m back to Lapland with flu and serious post-cph blues. Nevertheless, I’m going to caption my recent Instagram feed more throughly the coming days, so stay tuned for the reflections, impressions and tips on and about Copenhagen. As a teaser, you may check out this feed. And the Little mermaid and Ugly Duckling here… Hello!
