For someone with Wanderlust as their middle name I feel a bit ashamed to admit that I was guilty of underestimating Copenhagen. Actually, not just underestimating the city but I almost didn’t pass it on my trip but decided to go for one day to meet up with my cousin who I hadn’t seen in years. She’s been living in Copenhagen for a while and though we used to visit Denmark on a very regular basis during my summer breaks from primary school, I’d never seen the capital of this country that seemed (excuse my words) boring, and I didn’t feel like I was missing out. Boy was I wrong.
Look at that architecture!
Me and my gorgeous cousin
Probably my favorite part of the city is Nyhavn.. look at those colors!
Too. darn. windy.
Not going to lie, I fell more than a bit in love with this city, even if the cheapest cup of coffee I could find was around 6 euros. The weather was perfect so we decided to walk everywhere. And when I say everywhere I truly mean everywhere, which was probably best to compensate for all the food we had. (Foodie-ness apparently runs in the family?). The city has this great chill vibe and is pretty damn photogenic. I got to see the beautiful old harbor, the foodhalls, opera and I even met the little mermaid! Unfortunately we didn’t have enough time to visit Christansborg or enter any museum but thats what you get when you only give this city 24hrs. You live and you learn, right?
