As is so often the case, my long weekend in Copenhagen in August was so gratifying, yet over before I knew it. This of course means, like with most amazing cities, I'm pining to go back. Only a 40-minute plane ride from Berlin, it shouldn't be too hard to make that happen.
In addition to the amazing people - from the three new-ish/brand-new foodie friends I stayed with, to meeting up with a great blogging friend I made years back and an old friend I hadn't seen since high school - the city itself was constantly impressing me. While there's no denying the draw of Insta-worthy spots like Superkilen and Nyhavn, what I enjoyed most was just wandering, stumbling upon beautiful storefronts, great design in the most mundane of places and neighborhoods so picturesque you'd swear it was a movie set. Just hang out in the right spots and everyone looks as though they stepped out of a street style blog. The people were so friendly, we would often find ourselves in long conversations with shop owners passionate about what they do. It's no wonder these are supposedly some of the happiest people on earth. Then there was all the food and coffee (and drinks)...
Before I dive into a post about the best gluten-free things I ate in this Scandinavian capital next month (which were really good and surprisingly plentiful), I'll leave you with some inspiration from this lovely city. Just try to resist the pull of wanderlust, I dare you.
