In BIG Pictures: a summer weekend in Copenhagen

c11

Divided by lakes and surrounded by sea, the Danish capital – which once started life as a small fishing village in the 10th century – has now risen through the ranks to become one of the most sought after travel destinations Europe. Affluent, upbeat, and a haven for impeccable design and good taste, a cool positive vibe seems to permeate the whole city. Its compact orientation, easy-on-the-eye architecture, attention to detail and welcoming nature (with an emphasis on café culture and a lively nightlife) make it one of the most user friendly cities in Europe. We spent three days in Copenhagen, staying in the cool meat-packing district located boutique hotel the Andersen, then explored the picturesque buildings and squares, the nautical scenery, incredible shopping and divine Scandinavian cuisine. Here is our summer weekend in beautiful Copenhagen in BIG pictures….

All words and photos by Becky Padmore, thanks to the very cool Andersen Boutique hotel.

Born in England, with a few family roots from Bavaria, and a heart in Scandinavia I've always been a bit of a restless soul. My first true adventure began as a six month voyage around South East Asia as a fresh faced backpacker and ever since I've lived a semi nomadic existence, clocking up over 40 countries on trips and living in Dublin, South East Asia and Australia. I'm a lover of US Road Trips, deserted beaches bathed in warm glow of a sunset, Cuban mojitos, easy-on-the-eye travel destinations far away from the tourist crowds and all things Scandinavian - from cloudberry liquors to Scandi Noirs. When not wandering the world, you'll find me walking my rescue dog in leafy South West London, strolling around the Brighton Laines on random day trips, hunting for photogenic landscapes or daydreaming about returning to my all time favourite places in the world; Havana, Copenhagen, Italy, Iceland, Thailand and the frozen landscapes of a wintry Iceland.
