TIP | OLIVE CAFÉ SAN DIEGO

Café Olive
805 Santa Clara Place
San Diego, CA 92109

Man siger at morgenmaden er det vigtigeste måltid vi spiser i løbet af dagen. Min far har altid sagt, spis som en konge til morgenmad, en prinsesse til frokost og en bonde til aftensmad. Så en anbefaling til et lille morgenmad’s sted er vist på sin plads. Mia har boet i San Diego for et par år siden så hun havde så meget at vise mig at en enkelt dag ikke var nok! Café Olive er et lille lokalt spisested på en stille gade i Mission Beach. Jeg har sjældent oplevet et mindre turistede sted i Californien (hvor det føles som alle steder har stået i en turist guide). Maden, og de mennesker som spiste den var så autentiske og stemningen var i sandhed en stille morgen summen. Vi sad udenfor, på plastik stole og nød duften af hav mens vi så utallige surfere gå til og fra stranden. De stoppede ofte lige op og gik inde på Café Olive for at købe en lemonade eller en muffin to go. Maden var simpel, amerikansk og mættede godt. Perfekt forberedelse til en dag på Mission Beach (som forresten opleves). God fornøjelse!

english: It has been said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. My dad always says, eat like a king in the morning, a princess in the afternoon and a farmer at night. So a little breakfast recommendation is appropriate for the blog don’t ya think? Mia has lived in San Diego a couple of years ago and she had so much to show me that one day simply wasn’t enough! Café Olive is a small, very local eatery located on a small, quite street in Mission Beach. It’s rare to find such a non touristy place in California (where everything seems to have been in some kind of turist book). The food, and the people eating it are so authentic and the vibe is just a perfect, quite morning hum. We sat outside on plastic chairs just enjoying the smell of ocean. Countless surfers were commuting to and from the beach and many of them stopped for a lemonade or a muffin to go. The food was simple, american and had a solid lay in the stomach. Perfect start for a day at Mission Beach (a place you absolutely must see btw). Enjoy!

You can get the I heart L.A, the crying Kim K, the Ciao Bella – you name it, they’ve got it! Enjoy!

TIP | THE MELROSE TRADING POST

The Melrose trading post
Read more here

Nogen ting kommer før andre. Indrøm det nu bare, når man vender tilbage til et sted man har været mange gange er der en lille routine. Nogen ting man lige skal fordi ellers er det som om man ikke helt er tilbage endnu. Når jeg lander i L.A skal jeg altid have en glazed donut (gerne så hurtigt så muligt), besøge Griffith Observatory, se Santa Monica pier and aflægge visit på Melrose tranding post. Jeg tror mange som besøger L.A ved mange fine ting om byen men knap så mange kender til Melrose tradig post. Så jeg føler det er min pligt at oplyse jer om denne skat. Hver søndag, i regn eller solskind, bliver parkeringpladsen foran Fairfax highschool indtaget af utallige telte. Placeringen er genial, lige mellem Melrose og Fairfax avenue. Der er ikke et sejere sted du kunne befinde dig på en søndag. Smykker, musik, vintage tøj, møbler, mad – hvad end dit L.A hjerte begærer. Dette er hvor du finder det. Du kan også være heldig at spotte et par celebrities, de flakker ofte rundt her på en søndag! Det er også et genialt sted at shoppe vintage denim, aflagt militær tøj og über cool band t-shirts, du ved de helt originale. Det er en stor skattejagt med god udsigt til fangst hver gang. God fornøjelse!

english: First thing first. There’s always a few things that you just need to do when visiting a place you love. A routine if you will. When I return to L.A I always want a glazed donut (ASAP this one), visit Griffith Observatory, see the Santa Monica pier and go to the Melrose tranding post. Otherwise I simply don’t feel like I am really here yet. It has come to my attention that while many of you know many things about L.A, you don’t all know what the Melrose Trading post is. So I feel it is my duty to enlighten you. Every sunday, rain or shine, a huge flea market takes over the Fairfax high school parking lot. Located in between Fairfax and Melrose avenue it is the coolest place to be on a sunday. Jewelry, vintage clothing, furniture, food, music – everything L.A cool you can think of is probably there. Also if you are lucky, celebrity spotting is not uncommon at the market. It’s also a genius place to shop vintage denim, old military clothing (the real kind) and über cool band t-shirts. It’s one big treasure hunt! Enjoy!

I’M MOVING TO LOS ANGELES

Er du gal det er en underlig titel at skrive. Jeg flytter faktisk til L.A – det er jo så vildt! I morgen, d. 5 september flytter jeg til den anden side af jorden og jeg kommer først hjem til jul. Jeg har ikke sagt meget om denne tur. Jeg tror ikke helt jeg har troet det selv. Men, here I am, nu er det tid. Jeg har fået en fantastisk mulighed for at arbejde med nogle spændende brands “over there” så jeg og en af mine absolut bedste veninder, Mia, rejser afsted. L.A giver mulighed for at komme lidt tættere på mine amerikanske læsere og skabe noget helt anderledes content end normalt. Det er ikke hver dag man får sådan en mulighed. Mia og jeg kommer til at få den bedste tid, jeg ved det bare, hun er solid gold! I morgen boarder jeg endnu engang et af de der über seje pink WOW fly, de har stadig de bedste priser! Sebastian og jeg fløj med dem til L.A i april og havde sådan en fed tur at jeg synes vi skulle flyve med dem igen! Læs mere om WOW her. 3 måneder er lang tid at være væk så jeg kommer selvfølgelig til at pakke en hel hel hel masse! Jeg vil ikke gennemgå det hele men dog lige gå over nogle af de ting jeg bestemt ikke kan leve uden. Først, ingen Maria uden behagelige sneakers, min micellar water fra L’oréal (for den findes ikke bedre) og selvfølgelig salte fisk! Vi snakkes venner!

english: Wow, that was such a weird title to write. I am actually moving to L.A – that’s so crazy! Tomorrow, the 5th of September I am moving to the other side of the earth and I won’t be home until Christmas. I have been keeping this from all of you for quite a while. I suppose I havn’t really believed it myself. But here I am telling you. It’s huge. I have gotten an amazing opportunity to work with some great brands abroad, so me and one of my absolute best friends, Mia, is going for the rest of 2017. This trip also gives me a chance to connect with my american readers and create new and exciting content, which I am really looking forward to. I can’t wait. Me and Mia are going to have the best time, I just know it – she is pure gold. Tomorrow I will once again be boarding one of those awesome pink WOW airplanes that I love, they still have the best prices! Sebastian and I flew with them to L.A in april and I loved the trip so much I wanted to fly with them again! Read more about WOW air here. 3 months is a long time to be away so of course I will be packing my ass off today – here is a little snapshot of what I will be bringing. I won’t name it all but a few things I can’t live without is comfy sneakers, my micellar water from L’oréal (it’s too good!) and of course salty fish candy. Talk soon friends!

Restaurant Ojala
Calle de San Andrés, 1, 28004 Madrid

Jeg er nødt til at state med at sige at jeg indeed har brudt en regel ved at ligge dette post op. Jeg bruger aldrig, aldrig, ALDRIG iPhone billeder på min blog – og det er ikke ment som et diss til folk der gør det men på min platform er det et no go. Men her er grunden til jeg gjorde en undtagelse og hvorfor, at det her blogpost er vigtigt! På vores sidste aften i Madrid havde vi besluttet at vores middag skulle være work free – det skal de altså nogengange være. Men oh hvad gør man når det sidste sted man spiser er det bedste?! Vi stødte på den her lille restaurant på hjørnet af et eller andet spansk og noget andet spansk da vi var på vej hen til et bao sted jeg havde læst om på nettet. Sebastian stoppede op og sagde “Se hvor lækkert det der sted ser ud!” jeg blev selvfølgelig øjeblikkelig fornærmet, slog med nakken og sagde “jamen hvis du ikke gider spise bao så skal du da bare sige det.” (meget typisk mig) – så min søde mand sagde så at vi jo selvfølgelig skal spise bao så vi gik videre. Bao stedet var så lukket om mandagen fordi en hvis rødhåret person ikke havde gjort hendes research godt nok. Sebastian lyste op og sagde “ejj kan vi så godt spise der hvor det så så dejligt ud?!” Hvad skulle jeg sige? Nej? Så vi gik til bare og god dammit han havde ret, det så virkelig lækkert ud. Det smagte fantastisk, det var virkelig venligt prissat og stedet havde en vidunderlig atmosphere. Menuen var en blanding af spanish, mexicansk og amerikansk. Stedet var fyldt til renden hele tiden og af god grund. Vi fik 3 forretter, 3 hovedretter, en kande lemonade og 2 flasker vand for 40 euros. Jeg følte mig næsten en smule ked af det, velvidende at jeg ikke kunne spise der on the regular. Men hvis du er i Madrid anbefaler jeg virkelig denne fine restaurant, det var super skønt, insta venligt og pakkede med lokale. God fornøjelse!

english: First thing first, I have broken a rule with this post. I never ever post pictures on my blog that are taken with an iPhone – and that is not meant as an insult to those who do that on their blogs BUT for my platform it is a no go. But here is why I made the exception and why, therefore, this blogpost is important! On our last night in Madrid we went out to dinner and we decided it would be work free – sometimes it needs to be, right? But oh what do you do when the last place you eat is the best?! We stumbled upon this little restaurant on the corner of something and something as we were headed to a Bao place that I had read about online. Sebastian stopped and said, “wow that looks so nice!”, I instantly got offended saying “well if you don’t want the Bao you can just say so!” (typical me response) – so sweet as my man is, we went on to the Bao place that was of course closed on Mondays because I hadn’t done my research properly. Sigh. Sebastian almost glowed as he said “can we eat at that place with the plants outside then?!”. What was I gonna say? No? So we went back and god dammit he was right, it did look amazing. It also tasted amazing, was greatly priced and just had the most fantastic atmosphere. The menu was a mixture of everything good. There was some Spanish dishes, some Mexican dishes and some good old American burgers.  The place was completely stuffed and for good reason. We had 3 starters to share, 3 main courses, a chug of lemonade and 2 bottles of water for only 40 euros. I almost felt sorry for myself that I couldn’t eat there on the regular – it was just wonderful. If you are in Madrid I can only recommend this place, it was a truely authentic, super insta friendly and packed with locals! Enjoy!

PARTY AT THE PALACE

Jeg er nødt til at indrømme at jeg faktisk ikke er så meget til sightseeing. Ikke fordi det ikke er spændende, jeg har bare en anden måde at se byer på. Jeg elsker bare at gå, ud i det blå og så ser man det man ser. MEN – undtagelser må laves en gang i mellem og min undtagelse er altid, at hvis jeg kan komme ind og se en eller anden form for palads, et slot eller anden kongelig bolig, så gør jeg det. Det skal ikke være nogen hemmelighed at jeg ligesom mange andre piger altid har drømt om en dag at skulle giftes med en prins, gå i de store kjoler og danse i slotssalen. Ak ja, Disney har ikke eksisteret forgæves! Paladset i Madrid var storslået, smukt og overdådigt. Man måtte ikke tage billeder i selve paladset men ude i “gården” fik vi hurtigt snappet nogen alligevel. Hvis du er fra europa er der forskellige tidspunkter på ugen hvor du kan komme ind og se paladset helt gratis, du skal bare huske dit pas! Det er virkelig turen værd!

english: I have to admit, I’m not really a sightseeing type a gal. Not because it can’t be a good way to see the city but it’s not for me. I love to just walk out the door, into the blue and see what I see. BUT – exceptions are here to be made right? Is that how that saying goes? Anyway, you know what I mean. Whenever I get the chance to see a palace or any kind of royal sort of housing, I take it. I, like many girls, have dreamt of the day I would marry a prince, wear the flawless dresses and dance in the ballroom. Ah yes, Disney was put on this earth for a reason. The palace in Madrid was grand, beautiful and lavish. It’s not allowed to photograph inside the palads so we sneaked a couple of snaps in the court yard. If you are european there are different time sloths a week were you can see the palace for free, just bring your passport! It’s worth the trip!

Hej fra Spanien! Como estas?! 3 års intensiv spansk undervisning i gymnasiet og jeg kan knap nok bestille en øl. Det er fantastisk! Anyway, hej med jer og hej fra Spanien! Min onkel bor i Malaga så han har fixet et kæmpe hus hvor vi kan være hele familien. Det er så smukt her, vi har en fantastisk udsigt udover havet og en kæmpe pool. Jeg er virkelig taknemmelig for at jeg får lov at nyde sommeren syd på, tænk det stadig regner i Danmark – sikke en sommer hva? Anyways, i dag skal jeg til Granada. De har åbenbart en helt fantastisk bazar, jeg glæder mig super meget til at gå på opdagelse i den. Jeg håber jeg kan finde et fint stykke porcelæn eller måske et par håndbroderet sandaler, elsker at shoppe lokalt! Ha en smuk dag!

english: Hello from Spain! Como estas?! I had 3 years of spanish in high school and I can barely order a beer. It’s great! Anyway, hello my friends – hello from Spain! This week I am in Spain with my whole family. My uncle lives here in Malaga so he has arranged a big house for all of us to stay in for the week. It’s so beautiful here, we have an amazing view of the sea and a huge pool! So happy I get to enjoy summer in the south, it’s raining in Denmark – so much for summer huh? Anyway, today I am headed to Granada, they apparently have this amazing bazar, I can’t wait to explore it. I hope I find a nice piece of pottery or some unique beaded sandals, I love to shop locally. Have a great day!

BYE GREECE HI SPAIN

Ja det er korrekt læst ud fra billedet, det er mig som løber væk fra mit ansvar og forsøger at gemme mig for vores lufthavns chauffør. Jeg sværger da jeg landede i København i torsdags fik jeg en øjeblikkelig depression. Hvis ikke det var fordi at jeg allerede nu sidder i en lufthavn igen på vej mod spanien ville jeg højst sandsynligt være blevet i flyet og håbet på det fløj tilbage til Grækenland på et tidspunkt. Jeg savner Grækenland men jeg er så lykkelig for at jeg skal på ferie med hele min familie, det bliver så sjovt! Vi snakkes ved venner, knus til jer!

 english: Yes that is actually me running away from my responsibilities and trying to hide from our airport pickup. I swear when I landed in Copenhagen on Thursday I almost got a depression. If it wasn’t for the fact that I am already at the airport again now headed to spain I might have tried to turn the flight around or just stayed on board hoping it would return to Greece sometime. I miss Greece but I am so happy to be going to Spain with my family. It’s going to be so much fun! Talk soon lovers!

Det er ikke hverdag man får lov at opleve den slags luksus jeg har mens jeg har været i Grækenland. Alting har bare været on point! Menneskene, maden, hotellerne – det har virkelig været en oplevelse. Noget jeg også har nydt er at jeg virkelig har fået lov til at pleje mig selv hvilket er noget jeg ikke får gjort så meget i hverdagen. Domes Noruz har nogle helt fantastiske spa faciliteter som jeg har elsket at bruge mens jeg har været på besøg. Bortset fra at stedet er smukt indrettet med fantastisk blå mosaic tilbyder spa’et også fuldstændig skræddersyet behandlinger af de lækre britiske produkter Elemis. De har også et steam room, en sauna og en skøn pool. Oh, jeg elsker ferie!

english: it’s not everyday you get to experience luxury like I have on this vacation to Greece. Everything has been on point. The people, the food, the hotels – wauw, it’s really been something. But one thing I have also enjoyed so much has been the beauty of the self pampering I have been allowed to live through. Domes Noruz has the most amazing spa facilities that I have loved taking advantage of! Besides being beautifully decorated with the most amazing blue mosaic the spa offers tailor made treatments using the wonderful british brand Elemis. They also have a steam room, a sauna and an amazing heated pool! Gosh, I just love vacations!
