spontaneity always hits us. it was 2 months before we flew off that etain imessaged me one evening saying how her uni friend flew off to copenhagen and back in one day, for a short trip. (short indeed). i guess cos it sounded so easy we ended up booking our flights that day. we stayed for 3 days 2 nights and rented out a cosy airbnb in vanlose, which actually turned out to be a bit of a trek into the city centre every day.

we didn’t have much of a plan, again. but we played along cos copenhagen wasn’t that big of a city anyway. we stumbled across a food market which was beautifully lit in the evening. i managed to snag some homemade spaghetti in the flavours truffle and ginger as souvenirs.

the next morning, we decided to splurge a bit for brunch and went to a cafe called kalaset. it was situated on the corner of the street, outlined with colourful and vintage decor, and had a good mix of vegetarian/vegan options.

well well well…we have a tradition for visiting beer factories. we loved the heineken factory back in amsterdam and decided to a pay a visit to the carlsberg one here. we didn’t have a plan before this holiday, but if we did, the factory defo made it.

we had a tour around the factory, petted some horses and had some beers and ciders. it was defo fun, but heineken was so much more bigger and had more interactive activities. maybe because it was so cold too, we would much rather have our beers inside and chill.

i’d say half the time we were in copenhagen we were looking for indoor spaces to dodge the cold, which was coldddddd. our ears always felt like they were falling off. we visited cafes, toyed around at a toy store similar to hamleys, and visited design museums. hashtag cultured?
