BLOC Magazine

BLOC Magazine Spring 19-1.jpg (1.06 MB)Winter is over, and it’s time to celebrate the arrival of spring. The concept of spring cleaning is essential to the ethos of BLOC: de-clutter, throw out all the things you don’t need and make room only for the stuff that matters.

It is the season of rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, resurrection and regrowth. It is time to think about travel, exploring new places and investigate new business ideas.

BLOC is here to make those new experiences as easy and enjoyable as possible. Our 17th issue explores the ultimate short break destination of Copenhagen. A city full of amazing food, museums, theatres and plenty to keep kids enthralled.

We also profile Jamie Chadwick, who continues her winning ways on the race track.

Once again we hope that this magazine provides you with some insight and entertainment on your journey.

You can view all of the articles on this site or view an online version of the magazine click here.

We’ll also be adding to and updating this site with more cool stuff that we find on our travels. Jump on board!
