Where? Copenhagen, Denmark

Absinthe: New European Writing
The bookcafé, specializing in travel literature, takes its name from Tanquebar, on the Coromandel Coast in the Bay of Begnal; it was an old Danish colony and trade place in the South Indian state Tamil Nadu.
The art of traveling requires nothing more than a good comfortable chair, a pile of books about your chosen destination - its history, art, architecture and nature - a couple of biographies, a novel and perhaps a language dictionary or glossary. And then you're off. If your finances, time and significant other allow, naturally you can do the whole thing, buy a ticket to a distant place, find guides and travel books in Tanquebar's shelves and take off out in the blue. The bookstore stocks all sorts of travel guides: from the traditional ones to the newer ones, from books about architecture, art, nature to books about business and politics from all the world's destinations.
