Dear Copenhagen

you lack nothing

Photographer Adam Katz Sinding (AKS) shares how slowing down has made him realise Copenhagen is the only place he needs to be.

Dear Copenhagen,
I've been away most of the time I've 'lived' here. Now, I'm here every day – but even though I'm stuck inside, you've shown me you're truly the best place on Earth. You lack nothing. Thanks for being so cute.

my favourite movie scene

Our friend Marie, curator of MoSA Bowery and member of 5 Pointz creates, tells us why NYC has her heart.

Dear NYC,
I write to you from my window sill. Enjoying your sun-kissed skyline, your ever-changing murals, your upbeat soundtrack, your lively loud conversations. You are my favourite movie scene, ever inspiring.

a new beauty in you

Wandering around lockdown London has our friend Marine – CEO of MTArt Agency – seeing the Big Smoke in a clearer light.

Dear London,
how beautiful you are right now. I have watched spring unfolding slowly in peace, from the daffodils to the tulips – and now the peonies on my weekly walk to our artist studios. I have listened to the bells, the ones I never used to hear. I do miss the laughs at the terrace of my favourite cafes, but I have discovered a new beauty in you, something of an old painting I want to protect and help restore for the rest of my life.

you never cease to amaze me

Seeing how her city came together in a time of crisis only fuelled Dona's love for it.

Dearest Seattle,
you never cease to amaze me with how quickly you can put differences aside, band together and do the right thing. Thank you for being so vigilant about supporting your local business.

so much character and soul

If anyone knows Kuala Lumpur, it's our friend Sue Lynn, aka Bangsar Babe – a lifestyle blogger and digital marketing agency owner. She shares why the multicultural melting pot will always feel like home.

Dear Kuala Lumpur,
amidst all your skyscrapers and shopping malls, roadside stalls and centuries-old restaurants still exist. I feel that gives you so much character and soul!
