Copenhagen Culture

April 18, 2013

Things have been pretty busy back in Boston, but I decided it was better late than never to share some of my favorite shots from my recent trip to Scandinavia....   When we decided it was time for a getaway, Copenhagen was an obvious choice.  My friends and I have all studied abroad but our travel had been mostly limited to South-Western Europe.  So with a good friend from college currently living + working in Copenhagen, we jumped at the opportunity to cross the Atlantic and immerse ourselves into a new European culture.  With his busy work schedule, we were thankful to spend lots more time with him than anticipated, reminiscing, catching up + seeing his favorite parts of the city.  Aside from visiting our friend, we did a lot of typical touristy-sightseeing, biking like the locals, canal touring, architecture-admiring, and of course, eating (and maybe some drinking).  The City was so quaint + charming, yet a cosmopolitan center of culture, at the same time, with both historic + modern architecture for us to admire.  We spent many days just getting lost in the cobble stone streets (and we probably could have spent another week doing just the same.)  We were also able to hop on a half hour train across the Øresund (the strait in the Baltic Sea, separating Denmark from Sweden) and explore the port city of Malmö, Sweden.  With the bright colors of all the facades + storefronts, you'd never guess the temperatures were in the 30s and low 40s in this beautiful, capital city of Copenhagen.  At least we were lucky to have the sun on our side most days.  The trip was amazing, a once in a lifetime adventure.  Enjoy.
