A Long weekend in Copenhagen

This is a bit of a delayed one. However I wanted to retrospectively share snaps from some of the trips I’ve been on over the last couple of years since I’m at danger of losing track!

Last June I nipped over to Copenhagen for a short break to see my cousin who is currently living there. I love visiting new places where my friends reside as I get the insiders knowledge and to experience the real local life. It’s why I sometimes prefer AirBnB’s over hotels.

Here are some snaps!


Dungarees: New Look

Loved mooching around the hippy Christiana. If you’ve never been to Copenhagen I’d definitely recommend visiting. Technically a town in its own right.

Nyhavn. Apparently this is one of the most touristy spots in the whole of the city & hence locals tend to avoid. It was mid June and completed packed out, but summertime in any city is going to be overcrowded so it didn’t bother me. It’s very pretty so was worth the quick stop to admire, walk around and take some pictures but note it’s extremely touristy. I definitely wouldn’t recommend eating around there as largely speaking the restaurants are overly crowded,catered to tourists and awfully overpriced. 



This gallery was situated outside of the hustle and bustle of the city centre in a beautiful tranquil green space.

The art exhibited here was right up my street, think lots of abstract work, exuberant colours and complete vibrancy. I adore pieces that can be perceived in multiple ways but succeed in making you  stop and think deeply. I discovered some pieces of this ilk by Artist Tal R, a welcome discovery for me. We tried our hand at some painting too; the calligraphy is Lianne in kanji <3.

More mooching around the city and being besides the water. Bliss.


Jacket: Zara (sold out), similar here and here and here

I don’t often get to see my cousin so really loved spending the time together. x

I’m interested in so many things, but mainly self-help, wellbeing and travel. This is my little corner of the Internet to write about things that interest me - a bit about the things I think, the things I do, the things I eat and the places I go!

  1. Copenhagen is a great city. I only had a short time there. I went to Nyhavn but missed out going to Christiana. Maybe next time. I did want to go to the Tivoli gardens but the queues were too large, plus I thought it was too expensive to get in. Copenhagen was probably the dearest city I have seen so far. It was lovely though. I enjoyed your post.

    1. I was prepared for Copenhagen being expensive and whilst it was I thought it was pretty comparable to London prices, at least for eating and drinking out. Or maybe my cousin took me to more inexpensive places – the benefit of local knowledge 🙂 Thanks for reading Kristian! 🙂
