So, in a couple of weeks I will be gracing Copenhagen with my presence and I have absolutely no idea what to expect.
Denmark has always intrigued me; it’s all chic museums and good looking people in my head, but that’s where the familiarities end (if they’re even true).
I’m going for a weekend – so pretty much three whole days – with my sister, and finalising an itinerary is proving difficult.
I know, I know… I should be flexible and ‘go with the flow’ as the cool kids call it. But, as I’m only there for a short while I want to make the most of it. I also want to show you guys how to make the most out of a short trip to Copenhagen if you ever were to go (which you probably should ‘cause, you know, it’s where anyone who’s anyone goes).
I’m one of those people who wants to see everything. I want to go to all the art galleries, I want to walk along the river, I want to hang out in the park, I want to see all the cool monuments, I want to check out all the bars, restaurants, and cafes. But, of course, that’s not possible.
That’s where you guys come in. I need YOUR help deciding what to do! If you’ve been on a trip to Copenhagen I would love to hear your recommendations, however zany! If you haven’t been I want to know what you would do if you were to go. Hit me with suggestions and I guarantee I’ll arrive with gusto before heading straight to a bar and drowning my overwhelmed sorrows. On one pint, of course, because my budget is pretty tight.
If anyone suggests I go to Noma (the best restaurant in the world apparently), I will come and find you and shake you by the shoulders. Of course I would bloody love to go to Noma, eat the seventeen billion courses, chink champagne glasses, and leave £200 lighter, but that will have to wait until after I’ve robbed a bank.
My budget is more Lambrini than Champers which is ironic really considering Copenhagen is one of the most expensive cities in Europe.
Oh, and I’ll be staying at the Generator Copenhagen Hostel which I’m too damn excited about – have you seen the décor? I stayed at their London branch a couple of years ago and am eagerly anticipating the suave Danish twist they’ve splashed the Copenhagen one with.
Right, less about me and more about you! What should I do on my trip to Copenhagen? What should I expect from Copenhagen?
Any hints and tips will be taken with a curtsy and a smile (and I’ll buy you a drink, if you’re lucky).
