Let’s travel back about four months in time to that weekend my mum and I spent in the Danish capital:
We started our Sunday with brunch at Paludan Bog & Café (Fiolstræde 10). Let’s just say that if I were a student in CPH, this would be my hangout! Who does not want to drink their coffee amongst loads and loads of old books and retro posters? I also finally found soy milk – and a giant hummus sandwich. 10/10!!!!
After the refill of our food and caffeine depots we wandered about aimlessly. Copenhagen just so happens to be a very good city for such aimless wander, as one wants to stop at about every cobblestone to eternalise it.
When Marmorkirkken appeared amongst the rooftops we decided to pay it a visit. Well, I say pay but it is actually commission free. The inspiration for this building is said to be the St Peter’s Basilica in Rome! #funfactoftheday
In hopes of cooling down from the 30-or-so-degrees-celsius we decided to be extra touristy and take a guided boat tour. Above you can see the thinnest house in all of Denmark + a sample of how the Christiania harbour looked like. (I <3’s it!)
For dinner and rhubarb mojitos we went to La Babette (Bredgade 78) – the restaurant of a hotel which we had passed on our first evening in town and mum really wanted to visit. Said and done! They had a beautifully decorated backyard with colourful lights and greenery. Mmmm.
As we crossed Kafferiet (which is such a FABULOUS word!!!) I snapped about a brazillion* photos – the evening light was just divine. PLUS that sign “Eat here! One billion flies can’t be wrong…..” is just hilarious!
* brazillion = noun I have made up symbolising a large number; equivalent to the population of Brazil.
As the sun fell over Marmorkirken we went back to our hotel; eating chocolates and entertaining ourselves with the voice distorter on snapchat. It was great to spend some quality time with my mamma <3!!!
The following day I crossed over to my side of the North Sea again. Hovering just over Aberdeen were these delightfully blue (more commonly known as rain)clouds. Farewell summer heat, it was fun while it lasted 😥
