Copenhagen’s Treats

 


We’re here for only a day and a half. Not much time to explore. But perfect for friends and family to go on a food trip. Energized with danish open sandwiches and lovely fish steak plates (or boards?), we prepped for an afternoon and evening of sightseeing. 


 


The Still Bar in Crowne Plaza offers these delightful snacks. We could have sat there all afternoon but no sense wasting  the only afternoon and evening we have in this lovely Scandinavian city. 


 


 


Armed with a 24-hr metro pass, we hopped on a metro to get to K. Nytorv Station from where we walked towards Nyhavn. Before now, we planned on having a few drinks and a dinner here but the harbor site is just way too crowded!



 


Before long, we were walking towards the Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale-inspired sculpture of The Little Mermaid which is….. LITTLE, indeed. Crowded too and I saw quite a spectacle of this young lady trying to have a close-up selfie shot with the bronzed character, only to take a misstep. Her lower limbs submerged in icy water, she proceeded to have her selfie shot. Toink!




We passed a few more interesting sights, along with a crepe booth, before settling on dinner in Bistro Boheme along Esplanaden. Good choice. And I say that for both the banana nutella crepe and the lobster bisque, halibut steak, lamb, and salad we had. 


Two Tables. All 11 of us. Traveled together from  Berlin where I met up with them, but for a couple who flew in from Norway and joined us here in Copenhagen. What best to do other than seeing the sights? E.A.T.  


Need we say more?

About lifeisacelebration

Retired early, but still active. Very involved in celebrating life! I love traveling because I always come back with less cobwebs in my mind. It is as if I empty my mind of all clutter upon departure, and fill it with many happy memories upon arrival. I also like the idea that life is so focused on the present, and my senses are all playing to listen, feel , see, smell and taste everything novel or not so new. The fact that I only have to choose from a limited wardrobe, or use the same pair of shoes throughout my holiday , or work and survive on a single budget make life so much simpler. Sure, you sometimes get a raw deal in a few trips, or feel hassled by flight delays and cancellations, but the joys and simplicity of the present far outweigh the negatives. Oh, btw, I always end up gaining more friends after each trip. Many I kept......
