a blogger's travel guide to Copenhagen

Copenhagen is one for the books, folks. As I mentioned last week I didn't know what to expect when we chose Copenhagen as our first leg in a three week tour of Europe. I think perhaps that made it all the better when we found ourselves in a minimalist Danish dream. I have shared what I wore here, and my must-know tip: Birkenstock's are everywhere — love them, rock them. Today I'm sharing what to do, where to stay, what to eat and everything else to do while you are visiting Copenhagen as a blogger or at least someone who is obsessed with documenting the moment, ie. Instagramming life!

Where to Stay: Air BNB it! Copenhagen has an abundance of chic apartments. Make like a local and live like one in their abode. We got really lucky and found a spot in the very trendy neighborhood of Nørrebro. It was a minimalist dream, Scandinavian chic and perfectly decorated.

Where to Eat: Meyer's Bageri for their fresh baked bread and Danish- try the poppy pastry. Dürüm Bar for amazing shawarma, GRØD for yummy but fancy oatmeal, and food market eats at Torvehallerne and Copenhagen Street Food.

Coffee: The craft coffee movement is alive and kicking in Copenhagen, and The Coffee Collective might be winning at the game.

Cool Neighborhoods to hangout in and shop: Nørrebro, and Blågårdsgade— have a great mix of boutiques to pick up a nice souvenir to bring back home. See what I picked up in a men's shop here!

Bars: Mikkeller and Friends- with 40 different beers on tap you are sure to find something to suit your beer sipping taste, makes for a pretty picture too. For a pint of some local ale, try Koelschip for yummy Belgium beer in a romantic, dimly lit, attic-sized spot.  

Shopping: Everywhere, but Torvehallerne is where I went when I wanted Danish spices and kitchen wares, pick up lunch while you are there and order a nice glass of rosé while you are waiting. Yes, you can have your beverage while shopping for produce as witnessed here.
