Visited Copenhagen for 7 days with fellow students from Cardiff University. Involved a fair bit of advance research and planning - there are lots of things to see in Copenhagen. It is a pedestrian and bicycle orientated city and is a shame to rush it!
Took a boat ride around the harbour on the first afternoon. It was a good way to see the Little Mermaid.
Spent three whole days cycling around on a lurid red 'city bike'. That is a 'must' for any visitor - it was super to have such a bike friendly city after spending my whole adult life dodging traffic and abuse in not-so-bike-friendly Cardiff! But gosh was I saddle sore afterwards...
One day was spent in Malmö, Sweden, which involved taking the train across the incredible Øresund bridge.
I spent a Saturday at Louisiana, the labyrinthine modern art gallery at Humlebæk. Great views of Sweden on a clear day, very picturesque and tranquil. And superb art collection.
- Pros:Super city for walking and cycling
- Cons:Its the most expensive place I've ever visited (yes, more than Britain!)
- In a nutshell:Super city overall. Shows what can be done with a bit of love and attention!!
