On my last day in Copenhagen I visited Christianshavn, the island south of the center of the city. It’s actually a well known squatter’s village where thousands of Copenhagers have set up a bohemian commune. Full of eclectic houses, various shops and stores selling everything — and I mean everything — it has a carefree spirit that reminded me of the town where I lived for a year — Boulder, Colorado.
Copenhagen also has a great cafe culture along the many waterways during the summer…
…and amazing sunsets.
After a night checking out the Saturday nightlife in Copenhagen, I somehow made it to the airport with just enough time to catch my flight back to New York. I’m back now; slept for a little more than 11 hours to make up for my almost zero sleep over the last two days, and now I’m back in balmy New York (who thought I’d ever say that?).
There was a great view of Greenland on the flight home — maybe potential trip?
I’ll be getting back to the normal site format tomorrow, with articles starting up again next week. Thanks to everyone who followed me along my trip, and thanks to everyone I met along the way that made the trip so amazing.
