316. Copenhagen ♥

Copenhagen Nyhavn Denmark
It's been forever since I last made a post from my Europe trip (from last May/June 2012)..I have exactly 20 more coming lol. Yes, I already pre-made all the posts..sort of. So here are some more photos from one of my favourite cities in the world, Copenhagen! It was my first view of Europe (I came for the first time in my life many years ago with my dad) and I immediately fell in love with it. This city will always be special to me. The weather is always perfect, there's daylight well past 10pm during the summer, the atmosphere is laid back and sophisticated at the same time, and it's just such a colourful (literally) and friendly city. With lots of well-dressed good-looking people. Plus the food is amazing here. I could eat smørrebrød every day of my life if I could!

One thing I noticed about Copenhagen - they have a LOT of juice shops. Joe & The Juice was my favourite one (mostly thanks to the cute servers..especially when they drew a heart on my order lol). They have locations around Scandinavia, Germany and London. Before my flights I always like to arrive at the airport at least 3 hours early. I have to say..sitting around Kastrup/Copenhagen Airport was one of the highlights of my trip. Highest concentration of good-looking men in suits I've ever seen..

So sad to leave Copenhagen but little did I know at that time that my next destination, Prague, would end up being four continuous days of fun adventures & memories I'll never forget!

314. Trump & STOCK

Stock Toronto Trump Hotel
Another overdue post! I've been so busy this week I barely had any time for my blog. Recently, I met a travel photographer named Jimmy Cohrssen (check out his stuff - amazing photos!) when he came to Toronto for a few days for work. It was only after we met when I realized he took a lot of my favourite luxury hotel and restaurant photos..ones I saved on my computer folders years ago and I never knew who the photographer was until now!! One of the hotels he was shooting here was the Trump Hotel. So he invited me to go along, and I even got to be in a few shots ;) The shots are for my favourite luxury travel magazine which I can't reveal yet - not until they get published..if they do! Here are my photos I took during my day there:

pancakes from Stock Restaurant
Started off with light and fluffy pancakes for breakfast from STOCK Restaurant on the hotel's 31st floor. Next time I wake up in time for breakfast (which happens once in a blue moon) I must go back for those pancakes.

STOCK Restaurant chocolate plate
Plate of chocolates. The restaurant is pretty famous for their artisan chocolates as you can see:

Here is David Chow in their Chocolate Lab (which we were able to get a tour of) a state-of-the-art, temperature-controlled private kitchen where all the chocolate and desserts are made. It smelled delicious in there (& I'm not even a huge fan of chocolate)
