http://instagr.am/p/VtXy4dIMgN/ First departure was from my town, by train. Had a nice conversation about airports with a lady, with whom I agreed Copenhagen Airport is of a perfect size and nicely calm.
http://instagr.am/p/Vts78IIMkh/ MadGlad – I got a tip of this wonderful community kitchen-type cafeteria/diner in central Copenhagen. On a side street to Istedgade, which is also the street known for its sex/junkie area glory days. Although this area (Vesterbro) is undergoing gentrification supported by the government in the next 4 years, it’s still got its rougher edge. Kids families and the well-to-do singles are settling in this area the past years, hence the popularity of it are topping and it’s a good bet on it being the Hipster area of Copenhagen.
http://instagr.am/p/Vt2LQqoMgL/ The diner is called MadGlad (FoodHappy) and serves luscious and tasty foods, home made of course and always with vegetarian dishes as well as meaty ones. Big recommendation from here! It’s great for students and low budget visitors as it’s also cheap.
http://instagr.am/p/Vt43u5IMjj/ Din Nye Ven – Your New Friend, this is a bar/cafe which I find really cozy and awesome. I haven’t been here during bar times, but there’s a foosball table and the brick stone surroundings set the atmosphere towards a store room feel, but in a really positive way. Try the house’s lemonade! It’s heavenly refreshing! ❤
http://instagr.am/p/Vt-ovHIMrH/ Copenhagen Airport seem to be undergoing renovations all the time, but it’s never really a bother. There’s plenty of shops, both material and foods. Of course at the expensive airport prices, but coming here a little early won’t hurt. Tip: Check-in machines on the metro level are often free and carry many companies, if you get there at a crowded time, go here for shorter/no queue.
http://instagr.am/p/VuC40gIMgP/ We had airport drinks! A strawberry mojito and a classic lime mojito at The Bar(Mama Vodka). Expensive shit but they were good! I almost went with the Long Island Iced Tea 😛 Maybe next time….
I’ll leave you hanging for now to see where I’m going hehe follow up tomorrow – plenty of pics, and maybe even a video coming up! 😀
