our honeymoon · Copenhagen

As I told you before, we spent our honeymoon in Scandinavia. I said I would write more about it and well... here it is!

The only plans we made for our trip were to buy plane tickets and make a reservation for a hotel in Copenhagen, since we were surely going to spend at least three days there and also, because it was going to be the first nights of our honeymoon, we wanted something nice. :)

Copenhagen really is a beautiful city. I loved the colorful old buildings facing the canals, the old boats, the people. Danish people are sooo laid back and they all seem to have bicycles. Some of them ride big black old-fashioned bikes... super charming! Those people actually wear a suit and cycle to work! I mean, I don't think I could ever do that but, hey.. that's me. Of course in my world suits and bicycles kinda clash, but I'd be just a little more concerned with the smell, you know... :)

Anyway, they park their bikes outside their offices, coffee shops, apartment buildings, etc, which is also interesting, because when there are no bicycle parking u-racks, they simply leave them leaning on the building walls. No locks. 

Isn't it cute?

the bakery we had breakfast at

This was only the beginning of our trip. I loved Copenhagen and we have great memories of this place, such as having breakfast at this nice bakery in the city center (should have taken a picture of their cupcakes, though). However, the best part was yet to come: our road trip through Sweden and Norway.

  13. stopped dead at that first one and just gazed at it! Could you specify which one you are entering?

    To answer your question, this is a two week link up. So for now, I don't care if you have two entries, but next week I'm making it so that, if you want to, choose one of the ones you linked up and edit it, explain what they did, then link up again. then I'll post the most-or all- drastic changes that have been linked up.
    Does that make sense? Probably not!! :)
