This week I went to Copenhagen for a few days with work. Usually when I travel with work, I don't see any of the area I am going to.
I see, airport - taxi - hotel - office - taxi - airport.
But this trip was different.
We actually got to see some of the city. It was great. I was only there for two days (and it was incredibly sunny and warm) but everyone there seemed really carefree - the weather may have helped!
It seemed a very laid back pace.
The quality of life seemed to overcome making money and rushing around like a loon.
The connection with nature was everywhere, with trees, the sea and lakes.
Bikes were everywhere and I had trouble crossing the roads because of the dedicated bike lane (I kept forgetting and nearly getting mown down).
Rush hour had significantly more bikes than cars or lorries.
The food was lovely, really fresh. I had one of the best tomato and mozzarella starters I think I have ever tasted.
All the food is in season and organic. No white bread, chocolate or crisps to be seen.
Also whilst we were there, Noma were voted the No.1 restaurant in the world again, regaining the title.
And finally, the interior style was achingly beautiful.
I am in love with Copenhagen!
