5 books to read this fall

It’s time for some serious fall reading. The weather is cold and wet, and it’s time for me (and you) to enjoy even more great books inside under a blanket.

I’ve been offline with my family for the last couple of days. But now I’m back with a list of books currently on my wishlist. Some of them are already on their way to my mailbox. The past few days, we’ve been taking things slow, enjoying some time with our family in Aarhus and in Hjørrring, been fighting a cold (it’s that time of the year again), but now it’s time to return to ‘real life’ again.

Coffee, Paris and life hacks

As you might have guessed by now, I’m pretty passionate about my coffee. And when I came across some of these books, I had to have them. I remember our travel destinations based on where to get the best cup of coffee – and I always research before we go. I would never land in a city and not know where to get a decent cup of coffee. I’m sure two of these books will be of much help in the future. The other ones are simply based on interest and curiosity. I always love reading about new things and finding inspiration in that.

Paris in a box

Did you enjoy the summer in Paris with your kids? Or maybe a trip to the lovely city is just around the corner? I’ve found the perfect way for kids to discover or remember Paris.

On the blog Made by Joel, I’ve found the cutest miniature travel size paper Paris.

Made-by-Joel-Travel-Size-Paper-City-Paris-1a Made-by-Joel-Travel-Size-Paper-City-Paris-3 Get out your scissors and create a miniature version of Paris that’ll fit right into a tiny box. It’s perfect for kids and parents on the go. If you’re looking for a larger version, you can print it right here.

Made by Joel has a really cute selection of paper city toys. Take a look around and maybe your kid will be playing with dinosaurs in Sydney in a few days.

Paris mon amour

It’s been almost a week since we got home from our wonderful trip toParis. I’ve been really busy all week so I haven’t had time to share any of my pictures with you guys.

Hopefully, I’ll get around to writing a mini guide soon. But in the meantime, let me just recommend jazz in Paris  (do check out Duc des Lombards – and enjoy a fantastic night with what looked to be fantastic food (unfortunately, we’d eaten before we got there) and lovely cocktails combined with amazing jazz music. Paris sure is the place to fall in love, eat a lot of fantastic cakes and go mad in the beautiful Merci shop.

Packing your bags

I’m a lucky girl, because I get to experience Paris in the spring with the man i love. In just a few months, we’ll be taking it all in on what could be called a late honeymoon. We did not go on a honeymoon right after we were married. But this year we’ve been married for five years, and together for ten years, so we decided that now was the time.

And you have to be prepared. I won’t write about all the guidebooks I’ve been reading lately, or the perfect hotel room with a balcony and the most perfect view. I’ll save all that for a later post.

Instead I want to highlight a tiny (but still important) travel essential. Luggage tags. Moleskine has made luggage tags, and I still need to figure out where to get them outside the US. But having been a fan of their notebooks (and the quality) for as long as I can remember, I would love to get my hands on one of these tags.
