Buenos Aires is perhaps the most fascinating city I have visited. A mixture of all european cultures with the american ‘big’ way of doing things turn this city into an incredible mix of italian food and way of living, spanish language and culture, british traditions and french architecture.
The capital of Argentina is home to approximately 20 Million inhabitants, with its enormous size (it has the longest urban avenue in the world, Avenida del Libertador that runs for 40 kms), it offers a variety of interesting neighbourhoods, from the skyscrappers of the financial district Puerto Madero, to the leafy surroundings of el Tigre by the river.
We will dedicate further posts to Buenos Aires on this Blog. Stay tuned!

Copenhagen’s history stretches all the way back to the 11th century. The city is home to almost a quarter of Denmark’s 5.5 million population. It is a stunning place with historic buildings, narrow winding streets, royal palaces, parks and canals. You may remember our earlier blog about a long weekend trip there last year…
It was in the 1950s that furniture designers Anne Jacobsen and Hanse Wegner placed the Danes in the spotlight. It now epitomises the entire city. You may wish to take a walk on Stroget where you will see the cream of flagship stores or head to Norrebro where you find the boutique textile designers and if you fancy tea instead of coffee this area is the best. Hotelwise apart from the Radisson Blu there is the Danhostel Copenhagen city is Denmark’s largest designer hostel suitable for 4, 6, 8 or 10 people furnished by Per Arnoldi’s colour palette. For a cool experience try Absolute Icebar Copenhagen. For history the underground ruins of Christiansborg is a must.
