This summer I have been travelling by train around northern Europe and sharing some of the highlights in my blog. My last big holiday was to Zurich just before the pandemic but I did fit in a few days at Blackpool last year which was much needed. I like a combination of short breaks in the UK and city breaks in Europe. Anyway, this was how it began…
Recently I visited Amsterdam, as I documented here. Now I find myself in the Capital city of Denmark – Copenhagen. As I only travel by greener transport when going on holiday, it took me three trains to get here from Amsterdam. However, those train journeys were scenic and I really appreciated my arrival, after hours sat down in train carriages.
After half a day on the train, I was pleased to arrive in such a spacious city, with wide roads, plentiful cycle paths (not unlike Amsterdam) and interesting buildings. Soon we were walking to the New Harbour (pictured above and below) which was a colourful street alongside one of the canals that leads out to sea.
Looking for somewhere to eat, I had my eyes on a restaurant near Tivoli that had an Italian look about it. Cafe Vivaldi had tables outside with little fire burners to keep you warm. Regardless of this we ate inside and I absolutely loved the food.
With so many plans, I was exhausted that evening. Surprisingly I still managed to do more than 10,000 steps even though half of the day I was sitting down. That is not to say you have to walk everywhere as public transport is excellent. I chose to walk as I enjoyed taking in the scenery and wanted to keep up my basic fitness, especially as I knew I would probably be eating way more than usual.
For the next instalment of my trip to Copenhagen, check my blog later on. Perhaps you feel like following my blog or have been to Copenhagen and want to share your thoughts in the comments below. Either way, thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and check out my article.
