Copenhagen is one of the safest, fun and sadly, expensive European capitals to visit.
Here are 5 things you’ll like and 5 you might not from Mark Wolters:
1. Very Expensive: $8 for a pint of brew in a bar or restaurant! Buy store-bought instead.
2. Service isn’t very attentive: Good thing is that you don’t have to tip though.
3. It’s cold and damp 8 months a year: Hey, there are worse places. Try Siberia or Alaska.
4. There are a lot of people riding bikes: Read the signs to make sure you’re not crossing, walking on a bike path!
5. The fantasy doesn’t always meet up with reality: Hey, can’t say much about this one.
1. They are an outdoorsy culture: Getting fresh air while you’re drinking beer, wine and coffee is so fulfilling. People here love biking and walking at all times of the year.
2. It’s easy to get around: Good public transportation, signage, etc. Everything is centralized in small areas.
3. There’s plenty of American food too: This is true of most parts of the world, isn’t it?
4. The sites are awesome: http://www.visitcopenhagen.com/copenhagen/sightseeing/top-30-attractions
5. It’s safe: You don’t have to worry about crime for the most part. This is a very loving and prosperous culture with very little poverty.
