Denmark Europe

Photo Diary: Copenhagen

Back in February, I wrote about Copenhagen as one of my 2016 travel crushes. Schedule wise, I wasn’t sure when I’d be able to fit in a trip to this slice of Scandinavia, so when I found a flight deal for Labor Day Weekend, I didn’t hesitate to book it.

Fast forward a few months, and I found myself with four days to spend in Copenhagen. While wandering the city throughout the weekend, I kept thinking, “This place is so great.”

Before my trip, I read the Danes have achieved a quality and vibrancy of life that’s often missing in America. During my visit, not a single person asked me what I do, and it’s not because they didn’t care- it’s because we had other things to discuss. No one walks down the street with phones in hand, or checks them while at dinner or drinks. After living in New York for so many years, all of this is jarring. But, it shouldn’t be. And so, I’m grateful for the Danes- for reminding me what matters.

Colorful houses, cobblestone streets, great food and cocktails, incredible ice cream, wonderful people, and Scandinavian functionalism at every turn. If you haven’t been to Copenhagen, please go.
