24 hrs in...Copenhagen


If you follow me on Instagram,  you'll know I was  in Copenhagen. Although I saw more of a hotel meeting room than the actual city, I did have a couple of hours of free time to go walking so I thought I'd share a few of my snaps.
Aside from the huge amount of pastry I consumed, and coming to the decision that I want a pink bike with a basket (the two sort of go hand in hand, right?) Copenhagen was a cute little city to wander around. 

Things to do
Rent a bike. Something I didn't do, but would definitely have done if I'd have had more time. Copenhagen is set up for cyclists - everyone seemed to own a bike there and, the traffic isn't as crazy as places like London or Paris! Plus, it's the perfect way to see the city. 

Pay a visit to Nyhaven. The real tourist part of the city, but still you must visit (but maybe don’t sit in the touristy cafes outside). These gorgeous pastel buildings, are probably the most popular thing to photograph in Copenhagen and you can see why. 

Food
Copenhagen has a real foodie scene, and I would love to go back for a few days and get my food on!  Apparently, the key is to eat more street food in the day, thus saving money for the fab (and always) atmospheric restaurants at night. 

One of the places I visited was Torvehallerne Market. Home to some great street food, coffee and juice bars. There's a bakery called Laura's Bakery that sell the most delicious cinnamon buns. Worth a visit.

We also ate at a restaurant called The Italian, where I had the best Burrata I've ever eaten. Fact.

There's a lot to see and do in Copenhagen, so I totally recommend a visit - I'll be heading back soon to explore the city more.
