Travel: Copenhagen Part 1

Christmas time, mistletoe and wine, ah yes it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas…how many more lyrics can I fit in this sentence…

The point I am, so subtly, making is the festive season is here and what better way to spend a weekend than visiting pretty Christmas markets in an exciting new city.

I travelled to the fantastic city of Copenhagen for two days, which I highly recommend you visit, if you haven’t already.

It is full of trendy restaurants, bars, markets and fun places to visit such as the Tivoli Gardens (amazing this time of year), as well as lots of colourful buildings.

The Happy Wall is an analog interactive pixel sculpture, consisting of nearly 2,000 wooden boards that can be flipped to change colour. So you can create patterns, animals, words or statements.

So far there have been more than 4,600 pictures of the wall uploaded to instagram – just search #HappyWall to find them.

Original, I know.

The proud look on my face is because you have to act fast to avoid other people messing with your design. copenhagen happy wallcopenhagen happy wallcopenhagenIMG_7499The Torvehallerne Farmers’ Market is worth a visit, housed in two glass enclosed buildings, it is full of fresh food and flower stalls.

We stayed in the Pheonix Hotel, where they got a little over excited with the mistletoe…mistletoeHotel D’Angleterre is incredible, pure elegance and for Christmas it is decorated in themed statues, nutcracker soldiers,  and a shimmery curtain of light.IMG_7318

Boy do they know how to do a Christmas market in Copenhagen, we visited the Tivoli Gardens, which has everything you could want from a market. There were gorgeously decorated stalls, delicious churros, honey roasted nuts, amusement park games and rides. IMG_7331IMG_7334IMG_7339This is my kind of Christmas tree!…IMG_7349IMG_7348…and you’ll never guess who we saw, papped!…
