If I could pick one Scandinavian city to call home, it’d be Copenhagen. From a history of Kings and colorful buildings, to well-dressed Danes and a culture of bikes, the city has it all. I fell in love with Copenhagen on my first day there, during the Royal Boat Tour that took me through the canals. As I cruised on the water, I snapped photographs furiously from the boat, not wanting to miss any of the city’s picturesque sights.
It didn’t take me long to feel at home in Denmark. A few days after my arrival, I managed to grab one of the city’s cheap rental bikes and explored the capital on two wheels, blending in nicely with the locals. I began north, at the Little Mermaid and the Danish Resistance Museum. As the day wore on, I made my way down to the canals to take in the cheerful atmosphere of Nyhavn, sunbathe in front of the Black Diamond, observe preparations at the Royal Stables, and finish the night at the beautiful Tivoli Gardens.
