“Copenhagen has many great parks. One of the best is Frederiksberg Have. We enjoy going here for an early night walk or maybe even a little picnic if the weather is sunny.”

“I recently was able to visit Marfa with my friend Signe Birck. I’ve wanted to see the Prada installation for a long while, so I finally made it happen. The town is so small but the amazing art you see there would rival almost any other big city – besides NYC, of course. The other thing that I found surprising was the level of hospitality. Top notch in every respect!”

I cannot recommend a visit to this museum enough. It will move you, really force you to think differently, and I believe it’s one of the hidden gems of New York. Everything on display here is by the Japanese-American artist Isamu Noguchi, and it’s stunning.

“Cork is a major export of Portugal’s, and this shop in Lisbon celebrates the bark of the cork oak (Quercus Suber) and its many uses. Picked up this simple, elegant tea pot with a cork stopper and cork wrapped around the bottom. They have furniture, wallets, shoes, bags – I had no idea you could do so much with cork!”

Canalés at Uformel in Copenhagen, Denmark.


“To be perfectly honest, I was never a huge fan of canalés. Until I tried these at Uformel. The perfect size. Perfect soft, muted crunch on the outside. Perfect piping hot and moist consistency on the inside. We may or may not have gone back to the restaurant the night before our flight just to munch on these.”
