Facebook reminded me that I still didn’t do my article about Copenhagen. So here it is…
La Petite Sirène sur son rocher, la fameuse statue qui attire des millions de touristes. Mon amie et moi avons mis une éternité à la trouver, peut-être parce qu’on était fatiguées, peut-être parce qu’on est nulle en direction ou peut-être parce qu’on ne s’imaginait pas qu’elle serait là, dans un port à l’allure industrielle, avec pas grand chose autour. Mais bon, elle a eu droit à une énième selfie.
The Little Mermaid on her rock, the famous statue attraction millions of tourists. My friend and I looked for her for ages maybe because we suck at directions or maybe because we didn’t think it would be lost in an industrial harbour…
Strøget, sa grande place et ses petites rues commerçantes qui partent dans tous les sens.
Strøget, a big square with a lot of small streets full of shops around it. Super cute. And there’s a huge Tiger, a must see for cheap Danish design.

Vor Frelsers Kirke, a chuch not far from Christiania. You’re not really going for the white and empty insides, more for its tower you can climb on. 400 steps, the last 150 being outside, litteraly on the roof, only protected by a guard-rail. Reward(s) : breathtaking views over the capital, vertigo is optional.
Taking time of walking, looking around, trying to avoid the millions of cyclists, discovering…
