    Brooklyn oh beautifull Brooklyn

    June 18, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Wandering around Brooklyn today was amazing - hot, sticky, paked but also so many beautifull sights, interesting people, smells and noises. What a contrast to Iceland

    D2 New York - Brooklyn

    July 6, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    Impressions of New York so far:

    - Brooklyn is rad. With its old school
    Industrial architecture and views of both downtown and uptown Manhattan.
    - It feels just like the movies depict it. It’s beautiful and quirky.
    - It’s expensive - think queen vic night market prices but in US dollars. So a grilled pork panini (delicious!) cost 13 usd.
    - Their public transport system has a lot of character, energy and life. Aka there’s plenty of homeless people singing, selling Oreos and water and speaking to themselves.
    - Customer service (even when tipping isn’t necessary) is excellent. This may be influenced by the tipping culture however.

    TOP 3 Highlights of today:

    1. Brooklyn - wandering the Williamsburg and Dumbo neighbourhoods. Eating at Smorgasburg and getting custom made jewellery...for Anthony
    2. Brooklyn Bridge - walking with the masses across the wooden boardwalk while dodging local hoons on bicycles.
    3. REI - Kate had her first introduction to this US icon. We broke the budget, and it’s only day two...

    Time for home

    October 28, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 13 °C

    Last night we had a never to be forgotten birthday bash for mama Douglas at Brooklyn Bowls. The bowling may not have been of the highest standard, but some of our favourite people came along and helped to make it special.
    Now all we have to do is sit and wait and sit and wait - all the long way home.

    Brooklyn

    January 21, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 7 °C

    I got to experience my first ever night out in Brooklyn (Williamsburgh) on this trip, this place is sooo hipster, people ride their bikes to a bar, get drunk and then ride them back home. I was actually feeling full of cold that night but a shot of Jagermeister got rid of it completely, great medicine. We also went to see a jam band concert at the Brooklyn Bowl, it’s not my typical kind of music but it was good fun.Read more

    February 21, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    Heute gibt es Sommerwetter: 20 Grad sind vorhergesagt. Wir starten den Tag mit einem Ausflug ins hippe Williamsburg. Und es ist genau so, wie man es sich vorstellt. Kleine Läden, Street Art, schöne Menschen und leckeres Essen.
    Highlight: Zwei Kugeln vorzügliches Eis in der Sonne schlecken... Für 8$...

    Træning i Brooklyn

    January 26, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 0 °C

    Her skulle vi så til træning efter arbejde en torsdag. Vi tog aftes lige efter arbejde klokken 17 og derefter gik vi hen på et pizzaria og fik noget mad. Vi gik så helt ud til 1st ave og 14th st for at tage metroen hen til hallen. Denne gang foregik det på en skole i brooklyn som var meget beskidt og mest af alt minede lidt og et fængsel. Vi ventede udenfor hallen og blev lukket ind præcis klokken 20 hvorefter vi finder ud af at det er en baskethal med meget glatte gulve og der egentligt ikke er nogle håndboldmål overhovedet😂 vi var 5 piger til træningen og en del herrespillere (måske 15 stykker), så vi trænede sammen. De “mål” vi sp skulle skyde på var så to vollyball stolper der blev stillet op ad vægen og målfeltet tog man bare lidt på gefühlen 😉Read more
