Caroline Sølver


Hi there! I’m Caroline, 24 years old, and born and bred in Copenhagen. I study marketing and communications at CBS, and live between Vesterbro and Brooklyn, NYC, where I have a café named Skål, with my native New Yorker boyfriend. I’m a freelance writer and consultant, and I love to travel and spend my time as a digital nomad between Berlin, NYC and Copenhagen. I published a Danish guidebook on Berlin a few years ago, and right now I’m working on a second one, so stay tuned for that. I’m also a blogger at I drink my coffee with oat milk and I recently said goodbye to eating meat. However, I still love eating everything else, especially burrata and everything pasta.
