It is day 2 and I am exhausted! We managed to fit in everything in! We saw the smallest hotel in the world, The Central Hotel + Cafe. With only 1 room above an adorable cafe it is definitely the cutest hotel I've ever seen.
We then ate breakfast at Granola (thank you AGAIN Hannah!) and the food was of course... so so good. YUM! We then walked over to Nørrebro and found this little cafe owned by the nicest man called Arabica. He was so friendly and hospitable and the furniture in the space was really cool. After some lemon ginger tea we went shopping for home decor! I found some great additions for my studio.
After some light shopping we went over to the Assistens Cemetery where Hans Christian Anderson is buried. It sounds morbid but the cemetery was jaw-droppingly beautiful and the Danes have picnics and treat it as a park. It's actually a nice idea to bring life and happiness to a normally sad place. Sadah and I laid in a patch of daisies for about an hour. It was lovely.
Next on the list was "Paper Island" or Papirøen. We took a little ferry over to this spot and it reminded us a lot of Williamsburg. It was a warehouse on a dock that had food trucks and food stands from all over the world inside. The food, per usual, was fantastic. Sadah got this gin drink that was the most beautiful thing we've seen all trip. And it tasted as good as it looked (that matters to some people I guess).
After finishing our drinks with our legs hanging over the dock we marched on to Christiania. Christiania is a magical place filled with graffiti, overgrown plant life, and little stoners and photography is NOT allowed (which was obviously kiiiilling me). The large scale paintings of cameras with lines through them got the point across. Christiania is a self-governed society that has its own flag and currency! It was pretty cool to see. This little fairy park was my favorite. There was a tree with a red heart painted on it... and I couldn't take a picture.. and it shall live in my dreams forever.
After Christiania we went over to the Dome of Visions which is by far one of my favorite spaces.. in life. The dome is in existence to create awareness and more importantly initiate action and solutions when it comes to sustainable design. The space is basically a lounge within a greenhouse with a bar to top it off! Right on the water. In Copenhagen. So.. heaven. Loved it!
Now it is time for bed once again, for tomorrow I am off to Stockholm!!
