Repeat Copenhagen

I used to be against going somewhere “exotic” more than once. I suppose this opinion is defensible living in Europe and planning travel to, say, Thailand. But when I live in London and Heathrow is just 45 minutes away by tube, how can I resist the lure of places I love and want to get […]
