Whenever I visit a new city, I always make a point to get lost. Instructions on how to get completely lost:
1. Throw away map.
2. Take off your watch or leave it at home.
3. When in doubt of directions. Just keep walking.
I watched how cyclists navigate through traffic. Observing their hand signals, and how they go about crossing intersections. I’ll be borrowing a bike from Heidi soon.
Hands down to Danish brick work. It’s amazing. Interesting patterns combined with intricate work.
And of course, dainty small shops line the streets.
I stopped by a bakery that had their own stone oven. Heidi mentioned that they were famous for their bread. So I decided to have a prosciutto and cheese sandwich. The bread was made of various grains, nice and crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside. The bakery was cozy, with a nice sitting area.
After 4 hours of wandering, I ended up back in front of the apartment I’m staying in. Not too shabby for a first day of feeling out the city.
