Strange Smells And Lasers Cause Emergency Landings

Strange Smells And Lasers Cause Emergency Landings Sep 12th, 2013 at 4:20PM: Flickr, Tim Hagen Two flights recently had to make emergency landings for unusual reasons. "Strong odors" caused a Lufthansa Stockholm-to-Frankfurt flight to stop in Copenhagen, where 129 passengers were rebooked onto alternate flights. The reason for the smell? A new carpet installed in the airplane. Staff aboard a Sun Country Airlines flight from Minneapolis smelled smoke and made an...

Two-Wheeled Tourism: 10 Cities to Visit If You Love Bikes Jul 23rd, 2013 at 9:00AM: Anna Brones Why spend your summer vacation on subways and buses when you could be out exploring places on two wheels? Thanks to an explosion in bike-share systems and a general appreciation for bike culture, making cycling a central part of your travels is becoming easier and easier. You don't have to throw down, pack your bicycle and head off on a full cycle tour to get the pleasure of...

If you can get yourself to Copenhagen, you'll be able to travel to over 50 different countries without leaving their newest urban park project, Superkilen. Commissioned by the city of Copenhagen and RealDania, the concept of the "Super Park" was developed by SUPERFLEX as well as architectural...

Symphony Orchestra Plays In The Copenhagen Tube

Jul 13th, 2012 at 1:00PM: Much of the music heard on public transportation is less than comforting to the ears. A drummer banging loudly on buckets, a man singing a monotonous melody, a woman making vibrations on a saw, or a barbershop quartet that can't seem to sing in tune. True, there is a lot of good music played underground (particularly by those who have permits or well-known artists who play incognito), but...

Copenhagen city square built on poop

Copenhagen city square built on poop Sep 15th, 2011 at 10:30AM: Being an archaeologist can be a tough job--hot weather, frustrating digs that don't turn up any finds, dirty conditions. . .especially the dirty conditions. A dig in the Danish capital Copenhagen has turned out to be dirtier than usual. Archaeologists excavating under Kultorvet Square have found two 18th century outhouses that are literally filled with historic faeces. Kultorvet means "Coal...

Budget Copenhagen: How to survive a trip to Denmark

Budget Copenhagen: How to survive a trip to Denmark Apr 8th, 2011 at 3:00PM: Scandinavia has the reputation as being the most expensive corner of the world, but the true reality of day to day expenses don't really kick you in the shin until you're on the ground in Copenhagen. Bus fare on many routes costs more than cab fare across some developing countries. A double espresso can set a weary traveler back $6, $7 or even $8 in the most trafficked areas, while fine dining...

Five reasons to go to Denmark in the winter

Five reasons to go to Denmark in the winter Apr 5th, 2011 at 9:00AM: It's cold in Denmark this week – really cold. Where I sit at the Illum outside of Kongens Nytorv, the weather has barely gone above -4°C (26°F) in the middle of the day, the bright, crisp sky teasing the residents with illusions of warmth. Were it only close to true. Astonishingly, people are still riding their bicycles around the city, perhaps because they've attuned to the...

He sustained injuries on his face and arms. Police picked him up in a park, where he's said to have run following the blast. The low-cost hotel is on...

Top five cities for taxi drivers (and the bottom end, too)

Top five cities for taxi drivers (and the bottom end, too) Aug 7th, 2010 at 5:00PM: When you step into a cab, you never know what you're going to find. The driver could be knowledgeable, helpful, pleasant and safe. Or, he could lead you into a fender-bender in minutes. It's a real roll of the dice, of course, though some cities' cabbies are certainly better than others – at least that's what hotels.com found. In a study of world's taxi drivers, hotels.com found that...

Ghost Forest brings attention to rainforest threat Jul 12th, 2010 at 4:30PM: A Ghost Forest is stalking Europe. Giant trees from Ghana have appeared in Copenhagen, Trafalgar Square in London, and now Oxford. It's called the Ghost Forest Art Project, and it's an innovative way to bring the plight of the world's rainforests to public attention. Artist Angela Palmer wanted to share her concern with the public about tropical rainforests, which are disappearing fast. An...

Kindle tips for travelers

Kindle tips for travelers Jul 12th, 2010 at 3:30PM: The iPad may be the current darling of techie travelers but some of us are waiting for the first generation kinks to be worked out and a decrease in price (or a sudden cash windfall) before taking the plunge. While still a "monotasker" compared to a tablet or laptop computer, Amazon's Kindle is still a great tool to carry books on the road with a lightweight design and almost limitless capacity...

From World Cup to contemporary tourist destination: part two

From World Cup to contemporary tourist destination: part two Jun 20th, 2010 at 10:00AM: The World Cup provides an opportunity for participating countries to put their best foot forward and invite visitors in. Earlier I looked at fabulous and in most cases affordable hotels in countries in the World Cup's Groups A through D, hotels that fit their country's national brand well. Here are some suggestions for hotels that sum up the best of the local national brand from countries in...

Copenhagen at Christmas--or at any time of the year is splendid

Copenhagen at Christmas--or at any time of the year is splendid Dec 26th, 2009 at 9:00AM: In Denmark in December, darkness settles in around 3:30 p.m. Spend a few days where there is such an early sunset and late sunrise, and you'll know exactly why a festival of lights is a grand idea. Danes embrace the Christmas season with candles, evergreens and warm mulled wine. The result of the cheer is a feeling that the world is drenched in pools of warm, soft glows. The candles and...

Santa crawl around the world: Ho! Ho! Ho! from Gadling to you

Santa crawl around the world: Ho! Ho! Ho! from Gadling to you Dec 18th, 2009 at 4:00PM: Last Saturday night, Times Square was literally a Santa free for all. I first noticed the Santa madness as I approached from the direction of the Empire State Building while walking along Broadway. Along the way, a group of five Santas passed me. Then another group of Santas strolled by. Then there was a lone Santa and a Santa with Mrs. Claus. There were also elves. By the time I reached 42nd...
