I'm going to (all over) Denmark (and Sweden and perhaps elsewhere) next month;

what would you do if you were in Denmark?
what would you listen to if you were driving in Denmark with your mother?
she's not into music crit but, I mean, she just read the wind-up bird chronicle so there's hope for her yet

edit: it's my 4th time being there so i've seen much of copenhagen, been around odense and aarhus, many of the cultural landmarks like legoland, tivoli gardens, ARoS and norse store.

I'm going to travel Europe starting this Tuesday the 15th. My plan is to visit Cologne, Prague, Vienna, Budapest, Sofia, Ankara, Ljubljana, Kraków and I'll be traveling for a month. If anyone lives around these parts and want to meet up that would be really fun! I'm going to couchsurf as much as possible so if you have a couch I can borrow that's great. If you live somewhere else and want to meet I'm sure we can arrange something, I'm traveling with an interrail card so I feel pretty flexible and open to spontaneous changes of plans.

If you have any suggestions of buildings (preferably modernist) or restaurants, shops w/e please recommend me!

I was just in Seattle two weeks ago, albeit for only two days. Still got some suggestions

Food:
-Il Corvo (get on line around 10:30 if you wanna be one of the first 10 people inside)
-Ivar's (the fast food part not the actual restaurant. be sure to feed the seagulls french fries)
-Biscuit Bitch (breakfast joint)
-Shug's (good ice cream)

Things to See:
-Chihuly Museum (blown glass in case you don't know)
-Space Needle (right next to the Chihuly, just looking at it is probably enough)

Also the Ebbets Field Flannels store is in Seattle so go buy a cool hat.

my favorite coffee shop is medici caffe which is on west lynn, iirc. they should have breakfast tacos from taco deli if you go on the earlier side, too. i recommend walking around town lake; it's lovely and has nice people watching

stores are all meh, unless you're coming from somewhere absolutely boring; in that case, by george is ok

going to be in melbourne in december (12-15) for a conference, then sticking around for a little bit after (maybe until the 20th or so, then going to hong kong after probably!). (down to hang x-post to care meets)

several questions for australia people/people very familiar with australia. thanks in advance

1. melbourne recommendations for coffee, music, design, art, architecture stuff? and vegan joints please!!!
2. perth worth going for arts & culture? noticed that a lot of music comes out of perth -- big music city at all?
3. is one week too long for just melbourne? i've been to sydney and melbourne (and cairns) before, but i wasn't as into the same stuff at the time. dunno if its worth the trip out still.

hey man i can give you some recommendations if you still need?

melbourne in december is fun, i think a week is a really cool amount of time to experience the CBD, inner city suburbs and then possibly head on some day trips/overnights to the hills/beach/great ocean road etc.

A bunch of people have posted stuff to do in Berlin in the thread, I went recently and here's what I did:
-in terms of fashion I didn't really do anything good apart from stumble across a store on Rosa-Luxemburg-Stabe, I can't remember the name and it had only just opened and didn't have a website and wasn't on google maps, it was at approximately no20. It's a vintage store and they had a mix of designer and old workwear stuff and quite a lot of quite normal but slightly weird clothes, and it was really cheap! The owner told me he used to run a store in LA and did events with Craig Green before he was famous? Then he tried to show me some new Alexander Wang pieces they had got in but I said no thank you.

Image
This weird shirt was €20

Image
I liked this pocket piping

I also went to the Bless store which is a must-do although I had to spend 20 minutes trying to get it, then gave up and left for a coffee, then came back and finally got in. I also came across a vintage store that had some nice Dries and Yohji but was expensive and I can't remember where it was, overall I don't think going to clothes stores is that great a thing to do when on holiday.

I visited a lot of parks in Berlin, these are my recommendations:
-Tempelhof is probably the best one to visit, it has the largest meadow I have ever seen and you can't walk through it as they don't want people to disturb ground-nesting birds. It also has a really cool allotment village. It's an old airport and has a really neat story behind it, you can take a picnic there or whatever. Meadows are often mown in late august/september but they might not do it until late late winter, it won't be at its best either way but it's still worth visiting
Image
The only way we can truly achieve no-cop is to have more meadows to distract us from clothes

-Prinzessinnengarten seemed like a very neat to place to hang out and have a beer but I wouldn't bother making a pilgrimage to it if it's far from you and it might be a bit cold to sit outside now

-Berlin botanical garden was great and will probably have amazing autumn colour right now, costs €4 to get in and has huge crazy glasshouses, gardened in a very nice way for a botanical garden, won't be at its best this time of year

-Schoneburger Sudgelande very cool park that has a neat story behind it like Tempelhof, costs €2 to get in and is worth a walk through, should be nice at this time of year

-Tiergarten is not that great but might look amazing now with autumn leaves, there is a neat cafe there called Cafe am neuen see but it was quite expensive

-You've missed IGA 2017, here's a picture of me in the Tom Stuart-Smith garden anyway.
Image

Museum Island is cool if you like museums a lot, I couldn't get 3G to look up which museums to visit and ended up looking at a lot of collections of Roman coins but you can probably do more interesting stuff. The DDR museum is fun.

There are lots of small galleries everywhere, you can walk around Mitte and easily find a bunch, KW Institute was my favourite one I went to

Good restaurants I went to: Pomodorino , gorgonzola club (there is also a neat bar right next to this), also went to the black lodge which was neat

You should also definitely go out at least once in Berlin, I don't know where to recommend because every person I know who lives in Berlin tells me different things, I went to Kater Blau and had a really good night.

murkudis is one of my favourite stores in the world , celine/yohji/dries/issey/aspesi etc. it's a beautiful space and they have all types of things/prices, stationery, skincare etc. andreas is a lovely bloke (brother of kostas fyi).

the courtyard has a number of galleries also worth visiting but art is less interesting than buying stuff tbh.

Finally took a couple vacation days and went to Belgrade for the weekend. It's a really awesome city! There's a cool mixture of neo-Byzantine and Brutalist architechture, as well as some contemporary urban spots and a very quaint Bohemian quarter. Great food and good beer, too. From an American perspective, everything was fairly cheap. Hostels for about $9, half liters of beer at kafanas for $1.50, giant plates of delicious sausage for $4. If you're ever there, I recommend eating čevapi, ajvar, and burek. Drink Jelen, try different flavors of rakija, and make your way to Skadarlija. Oh and of course, do the free walking tour.
