More specifically, I explored Copenhagen. I spent four days in the capital and I really enjoyed it. The city was very clean, the architecture was so quaint and the people were very kind and spoke amazing English. We couldn’t fool anyone with our basic Danish phrases!
I believe that Copenhagen must be one of the smaller capital cities in the world – tourist sites and attractions where all within walking distance from each other. We stayed just west of Copenhagen Central Station and managed to reach The Little Mermaid statue within a leisurely hours walk without any hassle. Within our four days here we explored Kastellet, Statens Museum for Kunst, Rosenburg Castle and Christiansborg Palace just to name a few. One of my favourite places was The Botanical Garden as it was the first ever one I’ve visited. It was a grand building with many tropical plants, cacti and flowers inside, while its exterior gardens were just as pretty to roam around making great photo shoot backdrops, and the best part of it? It was free!
One thing my friend and I noticed was how expensive food was in Denmark. For a sandwich or bagel it would cost at least £8, which would usually be about £3 in the UK. We could afford to eat at this price, but we didn’t want to just throw away our money at insanely priced paninis for £10! So with out thriftiness, we decided to travel Denmark on a budget. Our diet in Copenhagen consisted of Burger King’s saver menu, bread which we dipped in jam, and carton iced tea which we found at Fakta Supermarket for around 60p!
