Canals and Candyfloss, Copenhagen

Last week I popped over to Copenhagen for a flying visit and whirlwind tour!

After a very early start we landed just before lunch time, giving us the perfect opportunity for a pre-lunch amble in the sunshine.

We took a spin through the Tivoli gardens.

Drinking in the welcome sunshine and pretty views from every angle.

Naturally making the very most of my Greek tan in all white!

As an ambassador for Pandora jewellery I joined the team on their Summer press trip to Copenhagen, which as it happens is where Pandora began.

Joined by a group of glossy magazine editors we all sat down for lunch at Nimb Terrasse.

Tivoli gardens is the city’s fairground/amusement park.

I can quite safely say that I have never sat down for lunch in a theme park and spotted the chef clipping herbs and edible flowers from the garden…

Copenhagen -5

…and it has certainly never looked quite like this!

Copenhagen -6

All manner of fresh green seasonal things (asparagus with every meal throughout Scandi summers!)

Copenhagen -7

Followed by a modern take on rhubarb and custard.

Copenhagen -8

Danish food truly is some of the best in the world.

Their flavour combinations and light, pretty dishes are just such a delight. I could spend the rest of my life eating my way around the country and never get bored!

Though I must say I was utterly flabbergasted to find such an excellent restaurant in the shadow of fairground rides.

Copenhagen -9

After lunch we could resist the shrieks, laughter and hollers of everyone on the rides no longer!

And spread out across the park to enjoy them.

Of course candy floss (or cotton candy I believe, if you’re from across the pond) was always going to be on the cards!

A fairground really isn’t a fairground if you don’t leave sticky.

Copenhagen -20

High on sugar I drove us all back to the hotel.

Copenhagen -21

Leaving everyone to their naps, Tania and I strolled off to explore a little more of the town.

Copenhagen -22

Drawn like moths to a flame towards the pretty painted buildings of Nyhavn.

Copenhagen -23

Friends chatting, couples promenading, singers busking, all along the water’s edge.

Copenhagen -24

We stopped into Vaffelbageren for a local specialty.

Copenhagen -25

When in Rome!

Copenhagen -26

The Danes top their ice-cream with whipped cream and lashings of jam.

Copenhagen -27

I was skeptical at first, but hot damn those guys know what’s good!

Copenhagen -28

Having given them two very enthusiastic thumbs up, we strolled (ice cream and coffee in hand) along the canal.

Happily picking houses and boats we’d like to move into.

Copenhagen -31

And avoiding swooping seagulls.

Popping back to the hotel as the sun set.

Copenhagen -35

And disappearing into the spa.

Copenhagen -36

Where we turned into two happy prunes, never to be seen again.

Well, until tomorrow when I’ll share a few more of our Copenhagen adventures!

Vi ses imorgen.
