Copenhagen postcard: Nyhavn

I cannot begin to describe how nice it was to be back in Copenhagen this year. I was there for the happy occasion of my friend’s wedding and didn’t feel as if I was there as a tourist. It actually felt as if I was meeting an old friend after a year of absence. A friend who had new stories to tell but who also had a familiarity that I loved. I found my bearings right away and unlike the many cities I will visit during this trip (I’m writing this while on a plane to Barcelona, the second of 8 cities I’ll be visiting in these 3 weeks of vacations I’m taking), I hadn’t planned anything for Copenhagen except for strolling around some of my favourite parts and just enjoying how familiar and gorgeous it felt. I hadn’t even planned any restaurants oddly enough, except for one night when I would be free. The rest of the time was spent with my friend and his mixed nationality family where I discovered some new traditions, met some absolutely amazing people and watched the sun go down and come back up again a couple of hours later… twice!

I did want to go to Noma but it was closed for summer holidays. I guess that just means I will have to go back to Copenhagen. Noma or no Noma, I wasn’t planning on this being my last trip to that amazing city and country anyway… but I digress. I did reserve at Geist Restaurant, a lovely restaurant where I shared a meal with a complete stranger who, by dessert, had become a new friend. That’s what food does too, it ceates and sceals friendships in record time. More on that meal at Geist later but for now, I leave you with some pictures of Copenhagen… Please excuse any mistakes or missing information but I am doing this on my iPad and it just doesn’t seem to be as efficient as a computer. I will fix any mistakes when I return home. Enjoy!
