Just got back from a lovely two day trip to Copenhagen. It was basically spur of the moment and because it's easy to get there and doesn't take long, but I can now cross another city off my list of must-sees.

I went with my best friend, and I can't imagine anyone better to have gone with. We took an overnight bus down and were planning to take one back the same night, but by the time we got to the city and walked a bit, we needed to find somewhere to rest for at least a little while. We found a hotel and asked if it were possible to rent a room for a few hours, but it wasn't, so we paid for the whole night. Seemed silly to leave so soon after that, and I'm glad we didn't. Would have been way too much in one day.

It was beautiful weather, unseasonably warm and very sunny, so we definitely lucked out there. We wandered around most of the day, doing a lot of the touristy stuff. It was really nice, and I was more relaxed than I've been in ages. The city is just beautiful, and I'm really glad my phone has such a good camera because I got some really nice pictures. We went to a Mexican restaurant in the city center for lunch (lol) because my best friend is a Stockholmer and hadn't had authentic Mexican food before. Sadly, she still hasn't, because it was rather lacking. We both got a sort of enchilada variety plate, and while it was okay, it was...nothing really special. But it was still good, and we continued walking around after that.

I had only brought one pair of shoes with me when I flew over from the States, a rather new pair of Adidas Superstars. While they're comfortable, they're not exactly walking shoes, and my feet were killing me by early afternoon. So we stopped at a Foot Locker and I bought myself a pair of sparkly lavender and orange Adidas running shoes. They sound garish but they're really not too bad, and they're incredibly comfortable.

After that we wandered a bit more, and looked around the Lego store, which was the highlight of the trip for me. After that we decided we wanted to get impulse tattoos, so we found a parlor. When informed it would be a wait, we went for drinks at an Irish pub. While there, we decided that the tattoos were too expensive to be a good idea, so we got dinner and more drinks instead. lol. After that we decided to keep drinking, so we went down the road to a fairly fancy bar, at which we drank disgusting drinks and had cheesecake. By this time we were pretty drunk, so we went back to the hotel, stopping at a hot dog vendor on the way, about which we laughed a lot because we are mentally twelve years old.

The next morning, we realized that breakfast had been included in the room cost, so we decided to stay a bit longer and take advantage of it. Best decision EVER. It was amazing. Tons of really good food, including some of thebest bleu cheese I've ever had.

After that, we headed for the train station. After some initial confusion we managed to get a train home, with a 5 hour stop in Malmö. This was actually good since it gave us a chance to wind down a little bit.

All in all it was one of the best trips I've ever taken, and the first with a friend. Loved it and I'm so glad I went.

Some pics! Typical tourist shots:
