Hope you’re all doing well.
I thought it was about time I posted this trip.
So some of you may have seen if you you follow me on Instagram that I took a weekend trip away to Copenhagen in Denmark, so this post will be giving you the play by play of my trip.
Richard and I woke up at a 7am so we could of course get our traditional McDonald’s holiday breakfast. We planed to get to the airport for 10.30am so we’d have plenty of time to check our bags in and get through security. Our flight wasn’t until 1pm and we had a good hour and a half wait by the time we sorted all that out. Hopping on the plane, it was much smaller then previous planes we’d rode together and Richard actually struggled to fit (I was pretty fortunate being a shorty). The plane had the odd spare seat which I was then lucky enough to have next to me eventually. It was around and hour and a half trip which went smoothly.
Once arriving in Copenhagen we hadn’t actually planned any transport to the hotel as we knew getting pre-paid transport would be more expensive. We had no idea though how to use the public transport so we just caught a taxi, as we drove down the motorway the price was going up a kroner a minute which to us seem really expensive so this caused us to panic slightly. By the time we reached the hotel it was a total of 185 kroner, which we then worked out to be £21 for about a 5 minute journey.
After finally being able to check in which had a slight problem, our airline never actually checked us in with the hotel but fortunately they had space and upgraded us to a superior suite, which to be fair I don’t think was really any different to a standard room except a shower rather then a bath and a slightly bigger bed. Eventually everything was sorted and so we headed out to explore the area and find some food.
We first stumbled across a small convenience shop which we then bought a drink of Fanta which was in a flavour we’d never discovered before. We then found a small restaurant on a river, we headed in but got turned away as it was a Friday night with a lot of bookings. After walking a little further we found an Italian take away which we both brought a pizza, me plain old margarita and Richard some crazy topping one. We then ended up taking it back to the hotel and chill for the rest of the night.
Starting off with an early morning we quickly got ready and went down for breakfast so we could set off. We caught a bus to this place called Tivoli, unfortunately it wasn’t open till later so we continued on to walk to my main attraction, the little mermaid. It was quite a walk with a horrible cold wind and a temperature of -4 so not exactly a warm day. Along the way we found a smaller mermaid statue and I of course had to get a photo with it. We then walked through the town and I came across a souvenir shop which we brought 5 postcards (3 for me & 2 for Richard) I also got a magnet. On the opposite side was a Guinness world record museum which we paid for, it had some really neat things to do inside, including how strong your punch is, how many drum beats in a minute and quickest time laying a layer of Lego bricks. We then had a tasty caramel waffle stick, which made such a mess.
After walking at least 2 miles we finally made it to the little mermaid, which of course had a lot of attention but I was able to get up close and have some photos.
After getting a few pics we walked on and found this massive angel. Richard and I then continued on through the fort and found it consisted of these red buildings. These buildings were massive, here’s Richard below.
On this windy walk around the fort, it had a pretty windmill on the top of the hill. After our excessive hike we walked back into town in search for the Lego shop. When stopping in a seven eleven, yep very American, we asked the dude if he knew where the Lego shop was and he ended coming out with ‘all toy shops sell Lego’. Yes maybe so but when Denmark is the creator of Lego of course there’s gunna be an actual store, we then eventually found one.
Unfortunately it didn’t have anything I was after so we ended up playing with a few toys but then headed out. One of the things I was after was an outfit to fit my new born nephew who is absolutely adorable, I ended up looking in H&M which is where I picked him up a tiny Star Wars outfit which turned out to be a huge success as actually fits.
Once leaving the store it began to snow and this became pretty concerning as I did not want to get stuck in Copenhagen knowing we’ve got our flight the next day and work the day after that.
As we were getting pretty hungry we then went on the hunt for somewhere to eat, upon our search we found a ‘Hard Rock Cafe’. Richard told me it’d be hard to get a seat as he’s been to one before and had to book but we took our chances and yay, we got a table. Unfortunately I didn’t get any photos inside or of the food but I had some tasty bbq pulled pork burger and chips, while Richard had some monster of a burger. We didn’t get desert as we thought it’d be expensive but really it wasn’t too bad.
We then saw the Tivoli was open again so we walk to it but unfortunately you had to pay just to get it, let alone pay for the rides so we skipped this one and headed back to the hotel. For the rest of the evening I was in a bad state, I had the worst migraine and I thought I was gunna be sick every time I opened my eyes and stood up. It reached the point where Richard went to reception to ask for paracetamol only to find he would have to walk to the petrol station across the road. I was so grateful he did because I certainly couldn’t take much more.
When we woke in the morning Richard was telling me he thought he’d have to take me to the hospital it was that bad. We then got showered and had breakfast so we could check out for 12pm. We learnt our lesson to get the bus so we caught one back to the Tivoli and switch for one to the airport, it saved us quite a bit.
Once at the airport we quickly checked our suitcase in and then went for lunch at some Irish bar, which severed the best mozzarella dippers I’ve every had. We then swiftly made our way through security and headed over to duty free where I picked up some goodies since we had quite a lot of money left to spend as we didn’t know how much we’d need for each day. I picked up some benefit products which was my first time owning anything of benefit. I chose a travel edition mini set and a single bronzer, I have yet to have tried all of them out but be sure to check back again as I have a post in the works. Richard chose an aftershave and together we picked some white chocolate coated Oreo’s.
In the terminal it had quite a few high end shops and your typical gift shop which I brought a small ornament of the mermaid statue. From then on it was our flight which was ram backed but at least we were on time.
That’s our Copenhagen trip all rolled in one.
