I love love love travelling. I travel pretty often, whether it be overseas or within the UK, but I’ve never really shared this on my blog… However, I’ve come to realise that I really enjoy reading the travel stories of other bloggers – so I thought: hey, why don’t I get in on that and share MY travel stories?! Not only do I then get to share a snippet of my travels with you super duper readers, but I also start to build a sort of digital travel diary that I can look back on. I’m kinda kicking myself for not doing this sooner!
Anyway, the point of this post: I spent a few days on Copenhagen last week. I went there with my partner and a group of friends, we had a whistlestop 3-day stay and it was ace! I’ve never visited Scandinavia before (despite being obsessed with Scandinavian design; see here and here for proof of that), so I was more than excited to explore what Copenhagen had to offer. It did not disappoint!
From the picturesque harbours with pastel facades, to classic Scandinavian decor inside every coffee shop, Copenhagen just looks incredible. We also took a trip to the Tivoli Gardens Halloween party (see my photos here), the original Carlsberg brewery, the famous Little Mermaid statue and the infamous Christiana area!
We even had time to cross the incredible Øresund Bridge into Sweden to spend an afternoon in Malmö. So, in the space of 48 hours, I managed to eat a Danish pastry in Denmark, a Swedish hotdog in Sweden and drink English tea back home in England! Phew!
I’m hoping that Copenhagen will be just the start of my Scandinavian adventures – I’ll be sure to share on the blog as and when I explore the rest. 🙂 – Mike.
