“Welcome to the happiest nation in the world”

After a sleepy 12 hour journey from YYZ to CPH, with a short layover in FRA, I finally arrived.  Transportation was super simple, I hopped onto the Metro and within 20 mins I was in city entre Copenhagen.  Hassle and stress free!  “Welcome to the happiest nation in the world” – Carlsberg.

I found my way to the Airbnb apartment fairly easily, showered and met up with Heidi.  It’s been a super long time since I’ve last met her, must have been either a few Christmases ago, or even way back when I went to Zurich for backpacking.  Either way, it’s always so wonderful to meet up with old friends.  We strolled through a very large cemetery that was very much like a park.  It would be a fantastic place to do morning runs.  Good things I packed my runners.  We met up with another friend and leisurely strolled around the neighborhood dotted with many specialty shops.

Very jet lagged and tired from traveling we made a stop at the Coffee Collective.  It’s one of the most popular coffee places in Copenhagen that prides itself in fair trade coffee.  I ordered an half espresso half milk.  It was delicious.  I almost wanted another cup, but I thought that I should hold back because I should try to sleep tonight.  All for a cost of 33 DKK, was very worth it.  I know where I’ll be spending my lazy days.

After some quick catching up, we decided to head to the grocery store near by and pick up some take home dinner.  I decided to satisfy my fish craving and go with a smoked salmon salad and yogurt.  Skyr is an Icelandic yogurt, it taste very much like a greek yogurt.  Thick, creamy and not overly sweet.

Going to take it easy for the reset of the night.  Unfortunately, the adapter I bought for this trip has a ground, and for some reason there are no plugs in this apartment that has a ground.  I’m going to need to borrow one from Heidi tomorrow, or see if the lady here has one I can use while I’m here.
