Blob. Blobbity blob. Bloberino. These are words that describe how I have been feeling recently. In the interest of saving money, we have’t been adventuring at all, and therefore have been bumming around the house since we came back from Malmö on New Year’s Eve. That was two weeks ago. Anyway, today I decided I had enough and since Jeff hasn’t been feeling well, I took the train down to Copenhagen by myself.
Whenever I go down to Copenhagen, it is inevitable I eat at Palæo at the Torvehallerne market. It’s right next to the train station. Seriously – this place is delicious. Check out this salad I always get. Huge chunks of smoked salmon, oranges, pomegranates, cabbage, avocado, a piece of nut bread. I could eat this every day.
I finally convinced myself to brave the cold I made my way down the main shopping street, warming up in shops when I got too freezing. When I made my way out of Zara it was snowing. There is something seriously magical about the first snow of the season. Snowflakes just slowly drifting through the air before they become gross, dirty, piles of slush. I love it.
It was starting to get dark, and I began making my way toward the train station, when I passed by the Round Tower. I don’t know why, but I suddenly stopped and got the urge to go to the top and see Copenhagen covered in snow. I kind of felt like a loser going up by myself, but oh well.
When I finally got to the top, it was pretty much empty. I looked around and took in the incredible view. There were so many beautiful buildings dusted with snow, and I could see it all. I sat on a bench for a while thinking about how fortunate I am and how I don’t always appreciate it. Recently I’ve been doing so much complaining that I kind of forgot I only have 2 more months in this country. I know I’ll be missing Copenhaen when I’m gone.
Oddly enough there was a girl my age on the top of the tower who was also alone and taking selfies, so I offered to take some photos for her. There is nothing worse than a photo album full of selfies. Seriously.
To be honest, if I had never been to the Round Tower before, I’m not sure I would have gone up by myself. In the past I think I’ve lost out on seeing some really cool stuff because I’ve been to nervous/scared to go alone. It’s silly really.
So I kind of decided that one of my “New Year’s Resolutions” will be to not hesitate and take advantage of everything here. If I’m on the fence about something, I’m just going to do it. I don’t know if I’ll ever have the chance to come back to Denmark again, so I may as well enjoy it while I can. YOLO. Yeah. I said it.
Have you taken time to appreciate your surroundings lately, or are you a complaining grump like me?
