Morning stroll through Copenhagen
A short while ago we had the opportunity to enjoy a 1 day layover in Copenhagen before another one of our adventures, so in order to make the best of a quick trip, we decided to head out of our hotel early (around 8am) and get some sights, hopefully out of the prying eyes of other tourists!
The streets and the canals were devoid of people, except for a few locals heading out to the markets.
In just under 3 hours this strip would turn into a tourist hive of activity, effectively destroying any chance to really enjoy the local experience.
There’s nothing I find more intriguing and exciting about visiting a foreign city than seeing the locals out enjoying their city, just as I am.
We joined one of the free walking tours that are so prevalent in European countries in order to catch a little more of the local scene. It took us down old side streets and into alleyways and courtyards exposing some of the oldest buildings in the city.
And just to make the experience totally local, one of the local street food “delicacies.” Hot Dogs with everything and Cocio chocolate milk. We have a thing for experiencing local foods when we travel…
By now it was noon and the streets were filling up! Local life at its best.
Remember that quiet, serene walk along the canal? Well, like I said… TouristNado arrives.
Two quick stops to see the “little” mermaid and Christiania and we were heading back to the airport to catch our flight out of town!
Until next time Copenhagen ☺
