The Problem with Priorities

Understand me. I’m not like an ordinary world. I have my madness, I live in another dimension and I do not have time for things that have no soul.

Charles Bukowski

So you know how I said I’d try to post once a week? Guess what: I lied. It’s been more than a month of radio silence.

I could sit here and make excuses about traveling through Greece or pulling all-nighters for architecture or applying to over 40 architecture firms, but the truth is I don’t really care enough to do that.

And We’re Off: My 2018 Travel Bucket List

The world is big and I want to have a good look at it before it gets dark.

For someone who spent a good portion of their weekends in Copenhagen, I made a dent in my travel bucket list. So far I have been to:

  • Helsinki, Finland
  • Paris, France
  • Warsaw, Poland
  • Krakow, Poland
  • Amsterdam, The Netherlands
  • London, England
  • Dublin, Ireland
  • Lyon, France
  • Chamonix, France
  • Dubrovnik, Croatia
  • Zagreb, Croatia
  • Budapest, Hungary

Cope Floats

If Copenhagen were a person, that person would be generous, beautiful, elderly, but with a flair. A human being that has certain propensities for quarrelling, filled with imagination and with appetite for the new and with respect for the old – somebody who takes good care of things and of people.
