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.
