As the second home to MiH Jeans, New York has a special place in our hearts. During our latest visit we captured the first throes of autumn; an enchanting and inspiring time to be in one of our favourite cities.

Visit Vietnam

Vietnam Hoi An Lanterns

 

Hoi An: a tiny town hidden away in the depths of Vietnam with tottering Japanese merchant houses, Chinese temples, and ancient tea houses. Everyone cycling everywhere, (mainly) smiling. At sunset: lanterns lit, twinkling candles bobbing on the Old Town river. Take us back there now.

WISH YOU WERE HERE

Mykonos, Greece

 

With the holiday season in full swing we can’t help but dream of sandy beaches, sunshine filled days and the ability to do nothing (without guilt!).  One of the MiH team recently came back from Mykonos, Greece and has shared her time there on our blog. Warning: reading this blog post may cause severe jealousy.

 

Mykonos, Greece

 

This small Greek island lies between Tinos, Syros, Paros and Naxos making it an ideal location to set up base and island hop or just stay and discover many of the beaches, two of which are completely unspoilt. Being able to travel off season makes this a perfect chill out location, hotel of choice for this visit was Vencia Boutique Hotel which has the most wonderful pool and views.

 

Mykonos, Greece

 

One of the best places to eat is right on a beach and is called Kikis. The food there is gorgeous with lots of fresh vegetables and fish, all with the backdrop of the clear blue sea (be warned the water can be very cold!)

The whole of the island is beautiful, with an Instagram-worthy view no matter which way you turn, and white buildings and blue doors galore. You won’t want to go home.

CRUSHING ON COPENHAGEN

3 Mar 2014 17:22:15

If you’re thinking about visiting Copenhagen you must know that it has much more to offer than ‘probably the best lager in the world’ by Carlsberg. Copenhagen is a compact city boasting all the particulars you could hope for in a short haul break. Be warned – you need to arrive hungry.

 

Copenhagen

 

Start at Café Norden for their epic brunch platter – it contains every type of brunch option you could wish for all on one plate. Or opt for an open sandwich, which by local tradition allows for substantially more filling than your usual sandwich. The relaxed nature of the dining room sets the tone for the Copenhagen experience.

 

Just outside Cafe Norden is one of the longest pedestrian shopping streets in Europe. In the Strøget they’ve even made the inevitable window nosing easier by the eradicating the worry of getting hit by a car as you wonder how many shoes you can fit in your carry on.

 

Head to Mikkeller for pre-dinner drinks, here you will find over 20 various beers. The pumps are numbered on the wall, you just pick which description takes your fancy and start pulling. It’s worth remembering that some beers are up to 10%, so pace yourself. The thirst quenching selection is complimented with cured meats and olives to pick at. This place attracts a hipster crowd, which should be expected given the guys who run the place; welcoming, but cool; you’ll want to open your own Mikkeler by the time you stumble up the stairs to the exit.

Once you are fully satisfied with your beer consumption, move onto the Oliver and the Black Circus for dinner. This very cool bar-come-restaurant has a menu of small, tapas style plates. It’s easy to over order but worth every bite. 

 

Amidst all of the cool bars and restaurants you have your typical tourist attractions. The famous Mermaid statue, the Carlsberg Factory, as well as hilly spacious parks you can walk off all that food and drink in.

 

They are a happy bunch in Denmark because everything is so simple. They have managed to organise their bars, restaurants and lives in a way that eradicates stress. It’s no wonder Denmark is the 7th happiest country in world.
