Colours in Copenhagen
briefly, in a lovely city


Orange light in the history museum

I liked Copenhagen. Going there had been on my todo list for years - no, decades - and K and I treated ourselves to the trip as a 20th anniversary present.

We had two wet days and two dry sunny days. We walked much too far on day 1, and managed to ruin our legs for exploring on day 2. But that was ok, because we quickly got the hang of the transport system.

We don’t live in a city, so cities still feel adventurous places to visit. Copenhagen’s a lovely city, and in four days we barely saw the tiniest fraction of it. I’d like to go back for longer, and spend time exploring beyond the centre. Ideally on a bike. Then again, I say that about a lot of places I visit.

There’s never enough time. There’s just never enough time.
