Gallery: Pride in London 2017

It’s only 50 years since the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in United Kingdom so Pride in London was very speciel this year. I am sure everybody thought about the poor homosexual people living in the UK before 1967 while they celebrated diversity on Saturday the 8th. And I sure did think about all the people who are still discriminated…

Proud of Pride

London is ready and waiting for Pride 2017! All over the city you can feel it – and see it. I’ve captured some of the shop facades and the welcoming messages in Carnaby Street and Soho. Take a look or even better: Go see.

Visiting my idol: Charles Dickens Museum

I have interviewed a lot of famous people and normally I don’t get star struck. But when it comes to important and wonderful writers like Charles Dickens it’s another story.

Incredible Street Art all over London

This is the capital of Street Art. Walking around in the streets is like walking in an outdoor art museum – especially in Shoreditch. Local and international artists have decorated – and decorate – the streets and I love it. Banksy is the most famous of them all but there are tons of them and…

Small skeletons and a massive giant

Heard about Hunterian Museum? If not you better go there before 20 May, because the museum will lock down after that date and it wont open until 2020.  The Hunterian Museum is a part of the The Royal College of Surgeons so now you got a clue about the exhibition. It’s all about surgery, anatomy, skeletons…

Vietnamese cuisine in a nice family restaurant

How about this: You eat the best Vietnamese food to an affordable price and while you eat you support poor families in Vietnam whit out even notice it. That’s the reality when you eat at one of the Mien Tay Vietnamese restaurants in Shoreditch. 40 percent goes to charity in Vietnam and the owners My…

Rich but inexpensive breakfast

My father is visiting from Denmark so off course we had to go to Cafe 338 for a massive breakfast. I have to recommend this place even though I don’t really want more people to know about it, because it is all ready popular in our neighborhood and who wants to wait in line to…
