Åh gud! It’s great to be back blogging about travelling. I hadn’t been away since August so I was very happy to get away even if it was just for 3 days. We planned a trip to Copenhagen a while back and although some may call us crazy for going to a cold country during Winter, I was super excited to go.
At the top of my to-go list was Nyhavn and it did not disappoint. The day we visited, the weather gods were on our side so we got bright blue skies and crisp winter sun. This made for a beautiful view of the harbour and the very famous colourful row of houses.
Since this is an extremely touristy place, you can expect a lot of crowds and high prices. Luckily, there weren’t masses of people when we went and I’ve come to accept Denmark is an expensive country as a whole. I also really think there’s something magical in the Danish water and air. Our skin was looking beautiful and radiant throughout the trip even though we had barely slept the night before. No wonder Danish people are so beautiful.
One of the most famous Danish dishes I had read about and had to try was Smørrebrød. It’s an open sandwich dish that originates from Denmark so of course it’s a must! We got an egg & prawn and potatoes with bacon smørrebrød. It was delicious, I mean what’s not to like about delicious bread and equally yummy toppings?! Funnily enough, we had this lunch at a Scottish pub, but everything tasted authentic and the service was wonderful so no complaints!
Nyhavn was probably my favourite spots in Copenhagen. Yes it’s very commercial and toursity but it’s also quintessentially Danish. When people think of Copenhagen everyone thinks of the colourful harbour so what’s not to love?
Till my next stop x
