Coping in Copenhagen

For the weekend of September 21st to September 24th, I travelled to Copenhagen to reunite with a friend, Delpha, and witness this gorgeous city I have never seen in person before. A few days before the trip, personal problems from home arose, so I was even more excited to get away and take my mind off things by exploring a new country. Delpha stays with a host family in Allerød, a beautiful, green suburban part of Denmark. The commute into Nørreport, the center of Copenhagen, required a bus and train so we spent about 50 minutes commuting to and from the city. However, it wasn't bad at all because the scenery on the train ride is beautiful!

On my first day, Delpha met me at Nørreport station and first took me to Nyhavn, arguably the most popular tourist attraction in Copenhagen. Then we walked around to see Amalienborg and other spots nearby before meeting with our friend, Marley, for a while before she left for Oktoberfest. Over that weekend, we also went to Freetown Christiania – I have to say, that place is something else! So unique, so relaxing, and so eye-opening. Before my time there ended, we took a canal tour to see all of the historic sites on water. Ultimately, this was my first international trip after settling into London, and I was so fortunate that Delpha was able to host me and show me around!
