Shopping & Sightseeing in Copenhagen

This morning I woke up in an sunny Copenhagen with snow in the air. I live a short walk from the train station and could see from my hotel window, it’s a pretty majestic building. I started of the day by take a walk to the pedestrian shopping street Strøget.

Started out by the city hall which is a enormous brick building with status and gold.

We walked along Strøget and took a side street in order to find H&M’s latest concept which is a store brand called Arket. I rather quick found two T-shirt’s and a woolen hat. Bit by wife won the shopping as she usually does.

The my sister and her boyfriend joined us and we had a quick hotdog at 7-eleven. Before we hoped on a hop on hop off sightseeing bus and a tour called the mermaid tour. Yes it actually takes you to the statue of the mermaid as a inspiration of the famous danish author H.C. Andersens story. The tour also show us Nyhavn a The Royal palaces in Copenhagen among other things.

After that we slit up for a moment me and the family and me and G got back to Strøget for some more shopping. And I spent some time taking some photos. The tour and the walking around Copenhagen has really made me see more of the great architecture of Copenhagen.

We finished of the night by dinner at the concept restaurant The Italian. Which obviously serves great Italian food. Where we had a three course dinner and some good wine, everyone excepts my sister which is pregnant. So pretty awesome day and I highly recommend The Italian.

Rome, Day 3

First two  days where all about the classic must see and do things of Rome. Today have been different, much more focus on just enjoying the city. Started of with a late breakfast and then a nice walk in the lovely weather out in the park around Vila borgese. A great park which makes me thing of Golden Gate Park in San Francisco by in an Italian style.

The went shopping with only a quick stop for lunch and after that we relaxed with some ice cream outside of the church Santa Maria maggiore. And this evening we have been out eating as usually at place we visited earlier this week.

Time to get some sleep before we leave tomorrow. See you. Will write more about the shopping later on.

   

               

Shopping Sunday in Copenhagen

Yesterday where the last day of my trip in Copenhagen and the only day that I in fact spend the most of the day in Copenhagen. We had a flight that left first that evening so we got some time in Copenhagen. It’s a beautiful city. The plane where to take a walk and se some sightseeing spots but the weather where very windy and also had some rain so we started the walk but cut it short and went shopping at the shopping street Strøget and in the neighborhood around it. Strøget is apparently the longest shopping street in Europe did I learn today. If my sources are correct is it this with a length if approximately 1100 meters.

I found two t-shirts from the Danish clothing brand Samsø & Samsø that I really like and a little photography book at Urban Outfitters.

Also looked for some cloths for G and found some stuff and &other stories.

We where also in some other stores but it where her we did some shopping. Then we had lunch at a Italian restaurant that I will write a restaurant review at as soon as possible.

After that we took a nice walk by the water back to the hotel and picked up our bags and headed out to he airport where we ate some and did some more minor shopping.
