Ok it was INCREDIBLY difficult to narrow down the photos I wanted to share but I simply wanted to summarise everything in ONE POST.
This was just behind our accommodation
We got a homestay room with a lovely Danish woman and her son in the Christianshavn area – a 15 min walk to the city centre. Which is where the popular shopping street, Stroget, is.. in terms of actual shopping though it’s no match for Oxford St. No match at all. Nope.
An abundance of bikes
All sorts of bikes filled the city
I like the ones that look like wheelbarrows
They use it to kart children around 😀
Already two interesting variations of BIKE in this photo!
View of the canal
Me! And a ..bike
Situated right in the city, an amazing amusement park that opened in 1843
Magic carriage of FUN!
And now I present to you..
The most AMAZING, MAGICAL RIDE
MAGICAL is all I can say
Sitting up there looking at the city whirl around me.. it felt so much like flying!
Even more so than when I went paragliding in Austria
You could see just about the WHOLE city from up there.. and it is WAY up
Wind in my hair
The most exhilirating, blissful feeling ever
There’s this thing called the ‘traditional brunch’
Basically it’s a giant plate of all sorts of food you typically have on a weekend?
Brekkie stuff, omelettes, bacon, ham, chips, salmon, bread, fruits, yoghurt, etc etc etc
Just LOOK at it!!
We got ours from Luna Cafe – a local’s recommendation.
A lighter version of brunch, had at a different restaurant from the first
Danish pastry shop that sold GIANT STRAWBERRY/BERRY TARTS for about £10 each
An assortment of herring
Apparently a very Danish thing to have
Too bad I hate fishy things
Smorrebrod (open sandwich thingy) of hmm, was it lamb slices or something.. I can’t remember
All I recall is that this tasted DELISH.. the portion just needs to be umm x10 more
As you can see, no photos allowed
So these are a couple that I snuck!!
Christiania is this little world of its own
It’s got its own rules, shops, radio, tv, bikes.. I dunno, even their own currency!
It’s really cool and laid back
I loved it
It’s a real pity photos weren’t allowed
Because it’s such a unique little (well it’s 85 acres big but anyway) place
So COLOURFUL and.. it’s hard to describe.. it’s got a special vibe
Sat here and had a drink as the sun set
This was also a sneakily taken photo :s
Took an hour-long boat ride through the canals of Copenhagen
Some kind of boat ride, cruising through what felt like FROZEN air
Still enjoyed it though
Except for the parts where the guide went on about some historical stuff
Love these photos I took from the boat
The sky looks so whimsical
To end this post here’s a pic I took from the plane on the way back to London
A thick blanket of cloud
I feel like I could nearly lay on it
