I was lucky enough to be taken on a surprise trip to Copenhagen by B. I had no idea we were going, I didn’t even question the fact that I randomly had a saturday off work (this never happens), and we planned a day at Mud-chute farm with Pop and Sean. It wasn’t until we stopped off for a pint in the pub on the way home that B mentioned he had a surprise planned for me and that the Taxi would be arriving in 5 minutes, and a few hours later we arrived in Copenhagen.
We were there right up until the Tuesday evening, and spent the majority of our time walking around, taking in the sights, drinking lots of coffee and sampling lots of food. As i’m sure everyones aware, the Danish, like all other Scandinavians, are pretty into their design, there were so many trendy shops and coffee bars, and we both ended up spending more than we should have at the HAY house. Aside from being a charming city, who’s roads seem to be built with cyclists in mind rather than cars, our highlight besides the Torvehallerne, was the Military Barracks, and the Danish Design Museum. We did make a trip to go and see the Little Mermaid Sculpture by the Langelinje Pier, but it was a very long way to go, and was slightly underwhelming when we got there. And ofcorse as me and B always do when we go away, we ended up at the Den Blå Planet (The Blue Planet), northern Europe’s largest Aquarium; the building is amazing, shaped like a spiralling star, they have so much there, from Puffins (which I obviously loved) to Piranha. Copenhagen definitely gets the thumbs up from me; if you ever get the chance to go I would advise hiring bikes (which we didn’t do) and exploring as much as possible.
