Copenhagen was a welcomed break from the 2 weeks of adventure in Norway. A much needed breather before we head into another 2 weeks of photography fun in France. So dare I say, we didn't do much in Copenhagen.

Ooo, I can feel the judgement emanating from the other side of this screen. Lol.

Honestly, Norway took all our money. People weren't kidding when they say it's one expensive country. Scandinavia as a whole is pretty pricey, but Norway takes the cake. The whole freaking cake. So by the time we made it to Denmark, we were done with the Scandinavian region in general. Don't get me wrong, we're coming back. Next time with a better game plan.

So what the heck did we do in Copenhagen? In an attempt to save $$$ on public transportation, we opted to walk to most of the tourist sights and scenes. Tons and tons of walking. All while constantly revisiting Nyhavn. It's a GREAT place to chill and people watch: the vibrant colors, the canal action, the large lively cafe crowd. Nyhavn also happens to have over-priced eateries, but there is ONE hotdog stand that's fairly cheap. Needless to say we were regulars. We took our hotdogs, found a spot to sit along the canals, and watched the view pass us by.

We also 'splurged' a little bit on a boat tour, ya know, just to get a different view of the city from the canals. Aaaand we cracked one night and splurged on a decent cocktail bar. At this point in our world travels, about 4 months in, the constant moving around ain't no joke. Another reason to leave Scandinavia asap into cheaper territory where we could just veg out ... for at least a week.

Oh! And a cool thing happened while we were in Copenhagen. The Gay Parade. Oddly enough, there was one in every Scandinavian capital that we've been to WHILE we were in those cities, but somehow the parade times eluded us. Thus, weren't able to catch any of them. Until now. In Copenhagen. Always love Gay Parades - they exude unity and love than any other parade I've been to. Glad we caught it!
