Traveling to Tranquebar
Today I went to Tranquebar with my family just to browse for a bit. My parents and my sister are bibliophiles as well so I had to introduce them to this little piece of exotic heaven right in the middle of cold, February-freezing Copenhagen. Tranqubar is quite a big independent book store slash café slash shop specializing in books about traveling and about the world around us. It is wonderful. Inside it smells like green tea and warm coffee and all over the shop, there are books. And then in the middle there are tables and chairs and you can sit down and chat with your friends. It is absolutely wonderful.
What is even better is the selection of books. Everything from Lonely Planet books about South American countries to small books about the best walking routes in the Scottish highlands from independent published. New books, second-hand books, antique books. Books about food - "Around the World in 80 Bites" for example, books about explorer, poetry, photography books. Everything! I could spend hours in there.
The pictures are from the Tranquebar website and if you are ever in Copenhagen, do visit Tranquebar!
