Copenhagen’s Counterculture: Christiania

January 21, 2016

  Scandinavia has a very cold reputation. Unfortunately, I can’t change the weather. I hope to, however, change this perception.

Seasons of Denmark

November 10, 2014

Weather and climate are important aspects to consider when traveling to a place. Why so? Because of several reasons.
The first reason is to be able to prepare accordingly in terms of packed wardrobe. Who would want to be caught unaware in summer clothes during winter?
