Copenhagen

I have just come back from a wonderful long weekend in Copenhagen and have fallen in Love. 

Of course I visited all the traditional tourist hot-spots, Nyhaven , Christinsborg Palacel, The Freecity of Chistiania (once a beautiful hippie community now just intimidating)  etc but what I fell for was the beautiful Botanical gardens and Geological Museum. The Spiral staircase pictured, leads to a rickety walkway high above the main palm house which was both terrifying and magical!

Wow my favourite blog likes my hometown, how cool is that???

Anyway parts of Christania is still a beautiful hippie community and there are the most amazing houses, but "Pusher Street" as it is called, is NOT a very nice place to be, I agree.

You should come back another time and see some more!

If you haven´t seen it, you should try getting your fingers on this book: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Christiania-Interi%C3%B8r-Interior-Karina-Tengberg/dp/8717041708
