City Breaks

Copenhagen Travel Diary

Copenhagen is a city which really struck a chord with me, I wasn’t expecting to love it as much as I did but there is something about the Danish capital which immediately won me over. From the moment we stepped off the airplane the Danes had us in fits of laughter with their sense of humour and laid-back attitude. I think much of the attraction has to do with the biking culture which is phenomenal; bike lanes seem wider than roads and at sight these two-wheeled rides outnumber cars by a long stretch. I spent hours cycling those flat roads listening to my favourite Danish singers on repeat, Agnel Obel & MØ. Never have I ever felt so entirely liberated, utterly free and blissfully content than in those moments. The streets are not short of inspiration dotted with impossibly attractive Danes with their long limbs, blonde hair and effortless style. I adored their fashion sense likening it to a cooler Parisian style; neutral hues and blacks are favoured but its less forced and edgier. I feel as though I made some beautiful memories in Copenhagen and have so many interesting stories to share of my short time spent there and perhaps that’s one of the reasons I think so fondly of the city now. Here’s a short photo diary of my time there but I’ve also curated a Copenhagen guide which will be coming soon.

What gorgeous photos. I had the same reaction to Copenhagen: I wasn’t expecting to love it as much as I did. I can’t wait to see what you put in your guide!
