Sunday in Copenhagen: Boat trips, window shopping & rhubarb mojitos.

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!!!
