FIVE REASONS TO VISIT COPENHAGEN
*Before I start off properly, I just want to say sorry for the poor quality photos... I took my tiny (and pretty rubbish!) point and shoot camera to save on luggage space and weight! This WILL be the year I pick up an Olympus Pen E-PL7/8!* Nyhavn: This is the place where every tourist comes to take a photo, and we were no different! Although a blue sky would have set off the colourful canal beautifully, it was just as perfect lined with Christmas lights instead! While we were there, the cobbled canal was pretty crowded with the festive market and it's customers, but thankfully we managed to find a little warm haven in one of the pubs with a hot glass of Gløgg! A must if visiting in winter and in need a little pick me up! how to dress Scandi-Chic, just have a wander down Strøget... Picture it, Brittany Bathgate's sense of style but on EVERYONE *heart eye emoji*

42 Raw. We went here late morning, so I was in between wanting breakfast and lunch before we got there. As soon as I stepped inside though, their huge bowls of fresh, seasonal salads won me over and I got a mix of two with added avocado. Another place I loved was Mad & Kaffe, which did the most amazing breakfast - allowing you to choose each element of your breakfast. I went for the 5 plate option, which was more than enough... and the smoked salmon was some of the best I've ever had! Last but by no means least, Copenhagen Street Food on Paper Island is a MUST visit. Although it was too dark for decent photos, there was definitely something for everyone - from sushi to falafel, cheesecake to traditional danish open sandwiches. I went for pulled duck chips from Duck It and a pulled pork and pickle sandwich from Oink Oink - and they were both f***ing AMAZING! To add to that, we had some of the biggest and tastiest Gin Cocktails we've ever had from Cocktailbaren... and left very merry!
