This weekend was great. Jeff joined me in the 25 club and we crossed a few things off the growing Copenhagen bucket list. It seems like every time we do something cool we find several more activities to add to the list. It has been great discovering new places and finding our way around the city.
Tivoli at Halloween – 5/5 – When I told people we were moving to Copenhagen, everyone said that Tivoli was a must see. I just figured it was just an amusement park like Six Flags, but it’s actually a little magical village. When we entered the park I was reminded of Diagon Alley (Any Harry Potter fans?). It’s just such a cute, cozy place, and Halloween decorations were everywhere! There was even a band playing folky-gypsy-ish Halloween tunes. We checked out the haunted house which could use some improvements (not scary and very short) and tried Glüwein – a hot Christmasy wine. All around it was a great experience. Now in a few months we will hopefully check “Tivoli at Christmas” off our list. I can’t wait to go back!
Boat Tour – 3/5 – I love boats and tours, and a guided tour of the city has been on my list since we arrived. One problem with this though – we couldn’t hear the tour guide. Oh well. We purchased some 1 liter (!) canned brewskis and enjoyed the tour. It was nice and relaxing and not too cold most of the time. I’m not sure if I can quite cross this one off the list since we couldn’t hear… just means we’ll have to go again!
FC København – 4/5 – I like watching soccer as much as I like all of the licorice in this country. This means I dislike soccer. A lot. Back home all of the Euro “football” games look so crazy that I had to see what it was all about. It was actually a lot of fun and we saw some goals being scored! The best part though is that the abbreviation for the team is FCK, so if you’re 12 years old like me, you find this very funny. “FCK LIVE” was pretty much written everywhere. The only reason I didn’t give this a 5/5 is because it’s soccer. Can’t do much about that.
One of these days I’ll make a master list with everything on it. But that day is not today. Do you have any must-see suggestions in Copenhagen? The Little Mermaid was a little “meh”.
