Copenhagen – Denmark

The day I picked up my new glasses at the optician, it’s weird of them to take pictures of their clients with new glasses… 2 hours after I arrived from Bali
Greetings from Riga, Latvia… Hello there! Yes I know it’s been quite some time since my last update, I do apologise as I have been working my ass off (yes, I actually travel for free holiday business).

Copenhagen, is a very pleasant and vibrant city (in comparison with Stockholm, Sweden). I stayed at the Le Meridien Palace Hotel, which was right in front of the city hall on Radhuspladsen. I bought a few things from people here, and a few books from the second hand book store (a cook book dating back to 1919).

Here are some pictures from Copenhagen…






More updates soon!

Hey guys just a quick one…

I’m in Copenhagen now and will be flying to Amsterdam on Sunday morning (Europe time).

Things have been great, especially work-wise.

More updates soon!

My next trip to Europe in July…

Stockholm, Sweden
Copenhagen, Denmark
Amsterdam, Netherlands
Riga at night
Riga, Latvia

Travelling season is back!! YAY!! Finally, Europe in summer!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOTTSSS!

On a separate note, I’m thinking of taking up Italian… It seems only natural for me, rather than Spanish (which I did a while back), due to the presence of many native Italian speakers in my office at any given time. What do you think? Self-thought of course.. Too much in and out of Kuala Lumpur to attend classes…
