Pedro Biker: Danish Evergreens

Taking a deep dive into saxophonist Sahib Shihab's discography a couple of weeks ago, I came across an odd name. During the period when Shihab lived in Denmark in the 1960s, he recorded two albums in Copenhagen backing a singer named Pedro Biker. Pedro Biker? At first, I thought the name might be a pseudonym for a famous American singer who was in Denmark on tour and wanted to sit in with expatriate jazz musicians. I also assumed the pseudonym was a brand of Danish pipe tobacco or coffee. But ...

My Week on a North Atlantic Cruiseferry – Smryil Line and the MS Norröna

One night we were watching TV and I decided to put it on a Smithsonian Channel program I had never before watched – Mighty Ships. The show is about very large ships around the world and I decided to watch because the description fascinated me. The show profiled the MS Norröna, a Faroese ship that operates a cruiseferry service in the North Atlantic. I had always wanted to visit the Faroe Islands and I loved Iceland, so my partner and I watched the program. By the end of the show we were both ca...

Discovering the Magic of Copenhagen at the Nimb Hotel

For my first visit to Copenhagen, I knew I wanted the experience to be special. Since it was also my first vacation in a long time, I felt added pressure to make sure every detail was perfect. A big part of the perfect trip for me is always rooted in the hotel, and in Copenhagen I made the best choice possible when I booked a room at the incomparable Nimb Hotel.

Round the World in Retirement

Ask new retirees about their plans, and you will almost always hear, “I want to travel.” But more and more, “I want to travel” is changing. Not all retirees are going the stereotypical “travel around the country in an RV” route. Many are thinking bigger and jumping into the long-term travel game. That’s what my husband and I decided to do when we retired. We sold our house, our cars, most of our belongings, and left town on a trip around the world. After a lifetime of working, retirement should ...

From Designing Trashcans to Luxury Hospitality: The Story of Vipp's Glamorous One-Room Hotels

Tucked away across a bridge in the center of Copenhagen, Denmark lies the largest hotel room the city has to offer: the Vipp Loft.

Finn Juhl's Iconic Grasshopper Chair is Put in Production After More Than 80 Years 

Danish designer Finn Juhl created the Grasshopper chair in 1938 and made two editions for that year's Cabinetmakers' Guild Exhibition in Copenhagen. He exhibited them alongside a mobile bar cabinet with illustrations of cocktails hanging on the walls, a setup that was evidently too racy for the more traditional crowd in attendance. Juhl's chairs received no interest during the fair and by the end of it, Juhl decided to buy them from Niels Vodder, the master cabinetmaker who had produced them, to...
