This post goes out to a special friend. Marcia this is for you! She was in this wonderful city studying a few years back. We talked about my travels a lot before I left and she had a great list of things for me to do. The night before I let her know that I was excited, and I woke up in the morning to something like 25 messages from her. They were all screenshots from goggle maps. It was to be my city tour for the day! I loved it.
I started with the included city tour. They took us to a lot of the big sites. This was good for me because then I could focus on the lesser known things in the afternoon.
We had lunch at a little café on Nyhavn street. This is the iconic street with all the colored house. It was wonderful. All I wanted to do was look at the scenery around me.
Thanks to google maps street view, I had a perfect walking tour from city hall to Marcia’s apartment in the afternoon. Once I left the busy main streets, I felt like I was a local. I love that feeling. There is a huge difference between being a tourist and being a local. I like when I can merge those two. I hate standing out.
Well I found her apartment!
From there I went on down the street to the round tower. It was constructed to be an astronomical observatory and is 34.8 meters high (a bit over 10 stories).
This was a special day for sure. I got time to really explore the path less traveled. I was able to go at my pace and really absorb the culture.
The day came to a close with a perfect moon! I could not have asked for a better day in Copenhagen. And don’t worry Marcia, I have many more pictures for you!
