Copenhagen = Dope

I was lucky enough to be whisked away to the “happiest city in the world” aka Copenhagen!

Instead of writing a long lengthy review about where I went, where I ate, where I stayed and what I wore, I’m going to write my 7 favourite things about this weekend. This trip was amazing, I just wanted to take it all in. I already felt a bit of a pain for asking to have my photo taken in the first place for memory purposes! So it was dedicated to spending time making memories with my numbero uno.

ONE: Copenhagen Zoo

This place at a bargain of £20 (exchange rate depending) is a MUST if you’re planning a trip to Copenhagen. It’s huge, affordable and THERE ARE POLAR BEARS. Honestly, you name an animal, you will see it at Copenhagen Zoo. I will say though, that there is two parts to it and one is so much better than the other, I will leave you to decide which you think is best.

TWO: Street Food Festival – Papiroen

Walking over to what looked like an industrial estate surrounded by storage containers, I wasn’t completely convinced. As soon as I walked through the doors I was blown away, incredible variety, such a good range of vegetarian and vegan options, and such a cool vibe! I tried the fake pulled pork burger, and it was pretty good! I wish I was able to spend more time here, and eat more food, but we were pathetic and could only manage one burger… I’m still disappointed in us.

THREE: The Standard

High quality food at not as affordable prices, but boy was I glad we went. We decided to go for a quick bite to eat once we arrived at the hotel, and The Standard was pretty much opposite our hotel; thumbs up! We sat down and after we realised how much we would be spending, we decided to make the most of it. I also had THE MOST AMAZING COCKTAIL which just set the mood nicely, it had bee pollen in… sorry that’s all the information I have… Oooh and gin!

FOUR: Nyhaven Pizza

After being caught in a rainstorm, we took shelter in a pizza place just around the corner from the bars along the river. It looked like a takeaway place you head at the end of a boozy night, but it had such a lovely vibe, and the owner was very accommodating! I tried off in the toilet and as soon as I got back we were told there was a space available (WOO). It was adorable, like a little den with hand painted colourful houses surrounding us, a tribute to the famous colourful buildings in Copenhagen. The food was spot on and the beers were cheap too! I think we worked out that my pizza cost only a little bit more than what The Standard had charged us for water! The best place for out anniversary meal, I wouldn’t have changed a thing.

FIVE: Christiania Free Town

This place was something else, Freetown Christiania is a car-free neighbourhood where around 850 residents created a different way of life. It was established in 1971 by a “group of hippies who occupied some abandoned military barracks on the site” and they developed their own rules, own society, and is completely dependent from the Danish government. Some of the homes were incredible, so well built and intriguing.

SIX: Walking

Being away from my desk and actually exploring by foot was definitely a highlight of my trip. In 1 day we managed 30,000 steps, equivalent to 13 miles! Never thought I could do it with my gammy leg. I wish I had more opportuntities to just walk and see what I find, we actualy stumbled across some sights Nat wanted to see which would have never happened if we had took the metro!

SEVEN: Spending time with my best friend

Due to us both working full-time and having different commitments, I can’t spend as much time with my inamorato as I would like. This weekend was perfect in so many ways, and I had an absolute blast hanging out with him, being childish, walking miles, drinking beers, playing at the zoo, taking 1000 selfies and even the drive home (which took around 3 hours, eurgh). So out of all the things I have done this weekend, I would say this is my favourite.

      Honestly it’s incredible! I was gutted that the Tivoli gardens were closed, not sure if they are in February but I would definitely hit up the food festival and the zoo!!

    I’ve never been abroad before so this looks like a great city break. There’s nothing more I love than sightseeing somewhere new. I love how you’ve got a mixture of activities: sights, food, walks. A great post! 🙂 x

    Glad you loved it, such a beautiful city isn’t it! Very jealous of you going to Christiana it was kind of closed when I was there cause of some drug problem 🙁 vegan choices at Paper island were amazing too!!
