Happy Monday, friends. We are going to try something that hasn’t been accomplished on this blog in years: writing weekly. And to keep the streak going, today we’re going to tell you about our trip to Copenhagen.
We went, as we tend to do, with our good couple friends who have similarly leaned into travel rewards, thanks to Brad at Richmond Savers. We ended up doing a stopover (a long, multi-day layover) in Copenhagen, that allowed us to also visit Berlin, come back, and then continue on the same ticket on our way to Stockholm. Basically, on our (nearly) free ticket to Stockholm, we took a extra week in between to visit another couple cities.
So, first things first. Copenhagen is insultingly expensive. Groceries were fairly reasonable, and the public transportation wasn’t too expensive. But buying anything else was a bit of a stretch.
Luckily, our Park Inn was a couple blocks from a metro stop and had free breakfast. Which we gorged on every morning. And yeah, maybe we snuck some soft boiled eggs, croissants, fruit, and bacon, into plastic bags in our backpacks for a free lunch later.
Is this wandering into the realm of the cheap, rather than frugal? I don’t know, but it’s tasty. And there is no shame in our game, friends.
What were our favorites from Denmark?
As Kristy and Bryce at Millennial Revolution noted, Copenhagen’s parks are insanely nice. And one of the few free things to enjoy. We, too, really liked the Star Park (Kastellet), though the parks near Rosenberg Castle stand out as preposterously beautiful.Did I mention you can drink on the street in Copenhagen? There are single tall boys for sale at any grocery store. And while their idea of an I.P.A. differs from mine, an adult beverage still adds a little something to spending an afternoon
