Torvehallerne

I still don't know how to pronounce the name of this market. When I hear a native pronounce it, it sounds something like tor-hellen. Regardless, Torvehallerne is a really cool market in city center with over 60 shops selling everything from fresh fish to gourmet chocolate almonds (they're amazing). The market is almost always packed because locals go grocery shopping here, and tourists come for a bite to eat or to pick up something special. 

Everything is always fresh. Most of the mini eateries inside also have shops located elsewhere in the city, but at Torvehallerne you can have the best of all worlds. If you're with friends or family, everyone can get what they are in the mood for. There's traditional open-faced sandwiches, juices, and coffee from The Coffee Collective (they ONLY sell coffee, so you know they know what they're doing). The Coffee Collective blends are also found in many other cafés throughout the city because their coffee is just that good. I'm also a little obsessed with the design on their cups. Another shop is called Grød, which means porridge. I'm an oatmeal fanatic (there are worse things to obsess over), and I've been to Grød's actual café, but it was prime to enjoy their oatmeal with a cappuccino from The Coffee Collective. 

Something About Sunday



A lot of my days turn out to be all or nothing. Either I wake up and start being productive or I make excuses all day. We're starting a new project at school this week, so I wanted to get another full day of me-time in before my focus turns elsewhere. One of my biggest projects lately is marketing myself, and I've started with my website. 

When I really want to focus, I usually need a change of scenery. I spent some time yesterday finding a great café with cute work space and a menu with skyr and granola because it's my fave. On my bike ride here to Parterre, I stopped all through the city to take pictures for my Paint the Town project. It's another cloudy but beautiful day in Copenhagen, and a perfect Sunday for getting some work done with a cappuccino. If my motivation prevails, i'll be grocery shopping and hitting the gym later for a leg workout. Wish me luck.
