A little to little or a little to late!

Today was the day that a Disney store finally opened in Copenhagen… the first in Scandinavia I might add.

It is now roughly 16 years since I first set foot in a Disney store. Back then I was so amazed by the experience and the selection of not just toys but also collectibles. So every time I came to a city with a Disney store I had to go visit and would usually end up spending more than my fair share on merchandise.

Fast forward to today and the opening of the store in Copenhagen. Somehow I managed to get my friend Mark to go with me and check out the store.
Compared to the flagship stores I’ve seen around Europe the one in Copenhagen seems quite small. Add to this the lack of any collectibles, save for a few Copenhagen themed mugs and badges, and you’ll end up with a disappointed “kid” – me!

Well to be honest I can’t quite say that I’m surprised. I knew that the stores had undergone a “re-launch” to become more focused and I already knew that I have become less obsessed with all things Disney.

So now – 16 years after I started hoping for a Disney store in Copenhagen – it’s just a little to little or maybe just a little too late.

Tumblr and cofee

The other day I started a tumblr blog/site/whatever.

The reason behind it was this: I’ve become less prone to write anything on this blog, yet I still have things I wanna share on an everyday basis (not just twits and facebook updates), and I realized that tumblr is quite a good platform for exactly that.

You can find my one here: esben.tumblr.com/

I also decided to start a new “project” with Mark. Seeing as we always go out for coffee and often end up getting a pretty lousy espresso based drink, we decided that we’re gonna review not just coffee places (cafés, restaurants, homes) but also the individual baristas, as they are ultimately the ones that make a good or bad espresso!

If you think it’d be fun having a look it’s here: coffeeCPH.tumblr.com/

Copenhagen Christmas

Today Christmas officially started in Copenhagen with the lighting if the town square Christmas tree. I went and saw the ceremony followed by a stroll down strøget which was also decorated.

These Christmas lights are more what I’d expect, unlike the ones at my dorm.

So now I’ve started to try and get in a Christmas mood by listening to holiday music as well.

Happy holidays everyone.
