Traveler: Copenhagen

During my time in London, I've been lucky enough to have the opportunity to visit several cities so far (and more to come) on the weekends. Last weekend, I ventured up to Scandanavia for a weekend in Copenhagen. It was a really beautiful city, but next time I think I'll hit up Denmark come summertime. Not only while I be able to then visit Tivoli, Copenhagen's amusement park, but also avoid the bitter cold temperatures we faced at the end of February - notice the ice in the canal pictures.

Other than the freezing temps, Copenhagen was an awesome city and perfect for a quick weekend getaway. On Sunday, we even crossed the bridge over into Malmo, Sweden for the day. The people were all tall, blonde and attractive; the shopping was to die for - lots of designer brands, high street chains and eclectic boutiques (the prices, however, were not: the Danish krone is not your friend); and seeing Christiana, the free society, was something out of the 1970s -- at the exit there was a sign saying "you are now entering the EU". 

Copenhagen's most well-known canal, Nyhavn

Love the pastel colored rowhouses on the Nyhavn

Palace where the Danish Royal Family lives. (Yes, like in the Prince and Me!)

Didn't see any windmills in Amsterdam, but caught one in Sweden!
