HAPPY VALENTINES Considering the founder of this festive romantic love day was executed (poor Saint Valentines) it’s amazing how many celebrate a day they have no clue about. Happy Valentines has been around since I was born but I remember when I first visited Denmark during the early 90s they never heard of Valentine’s Day.

Books and Bottles on a Thursday Night I attended a book signing at Løgismose rooftop store in Illums in Copenhagen last Thursday night 23rd November.
