If there is a city i did not plan on visiting while studying abroad, it is Copenhagen. I vaguely heard of Denmark, but that was about it. I had no particular interest to go over there. My roommate Suki and I wanted to travel but we only had 1 week-end so we started to look at the map to see what was close. By the way, this is one of the most exciting things for me, randomly looking at the map and choose where I want to go! It is so easy to do it in Europe! So that’s how we decided to go to Copenhagen! And believe me, I fell in LOVE with this city. It is amazing. 8 Reasons why you should go:
1) They have amazing little restaurants
Denmark really has nice restaurants. Plus, they are cozy. The ambiance makes you feel at home wherever you go and no need to say the food is fantastic.
2) Youth hostels are nice and clean
This is a glass of hot chocolate I had at my youth hostel. The atmosphere over there was great. So many young backpackers! You will meet a lot of people just stopping by for 2 days before continuing there adventure around Europe. The energy and laughs are all over the place. Little tip: if you are in your 20s and hungry for adventure, book a youth hostel, not an hotel. It will be worth it and much cheaper.
3) Riding a bicycle is pure bliss there
It is not only cheap to rent a bicycle there, but it is so worth it! The streets are beautiful and you will get to see so much while riding. One of my best memories
4) It is easy to find your way
Ok ok, my roommate did all the work, but she said it was easy. haha.
5) The city is full of history
Little tip: When it is mark ‘Do not touch’, do not touch! We sat on this bed for 2 seconds and the alarm went of in all the museum. lol Security arrived in less than a minute. We pretended we were looking at a statue. They never found out it was us… so please, DO NOT TOUCH. haha it was super fun.
6) They have the best hot dogs I EVER had in MY LIFE.
Their street hot dogs are AMAZIIINNG. I don’t know what they put in them!
7) Architecture over there is beautiful + houses are colourful
8) It is perfect for wanderlust
