I had barely left the airport and made my way to the metro station by the time I had the most overwhelming feeling that I was going to love Copenhagen. Or, København as the Danish would say. Everyone seemed so friendly and put together, and their public transportation was astonishing clean… a stark difference from Rome.
I’m not sure why I waited this long to get my booty up to northern Europe, but boy I wish I had done it sooner. I can’t put my finger on why it’s so different from the Europe I’ve experienced so far, but Denmark’s cool vibe made me sad I ever had to leave.
I got to meet up with my friend Lucie, who I met and became quite close to on the Camino (get to know her in my vlogs here!). This girl puts the b in blessing, and I cherished every moment of our reunion. I also met up with my friend Matt with whom I go to school with in the States, and got to know some friends he’s made in London this past semester. You can follow Matt’s photography IG account here.
While the city is small, it’s full of beautiful streets and lots to do. Also how cool does Danish sound? Cue listening to strangers in coffee shops for hours.
Just you know, doing a totally unstagged morning devo, authenticity and all. Seriously though, I couldn’t get enough of the simple indie vibes of our airbnb.
One morning Lucie brought over Koldskal for breakfast, a typical breakfast food made from buttermilk with a consistency like yogurt. You put it in a bowl and place kammerjunker inside, which are little Danish biscuits.
No one makes me laugh like this girl. Look at her sweet smile!
These nachos and tacos are from the large street food market on Paper Island, a must see in Copenhagen. There is a giant warehouse with all kinds of decorated stands serving different ethnic foods. Oh Mexican food, you have been missed.
My photos from the city were taken by the talented Zadkiel Yeo, who can be found on Instagram. Give him a follow for some great content! He’s one talented dude.
There simply wasn’t enough time to see and experience as much as I wanted to, and I think that the city has so much to offer. One thing is for sure, I will be retuning to Copenhagen at some point! Stay tuned for my second post of Day 2 coming soon. Until then, stay trendy!
