City Recommendation: Copenhagen

Last christmas me, and my family took a cruise to Denmark, Copenhagen to stay there for a long-weekend. Copenhagen is really beautiful.

We went there in December, and the whole city had a christmas theme. There were bells, mistletoes and cute lightning everywhere, especially in the shopping street, Strøget. In this specific street there were all kinds of shops, and many of them do not exist in Norway like Topshop, and Abercrombie so I was extremely happy about that.

For those of you that are not that interested in shopping, take a trip on the paris wheel, in their super nice tivoli. Try out caramelized apples, and enjoy your time. There is also very pretty decorations at the tivoli, so bring your camera!

If you have money, and time there is an aquarium a cab drive away from centrum. At the aquarium it was a tunnel, so you got the opportunity to walk under where sharks, and other cool fish swam. That was quite a memorable experience, and I highly recommend it. The aquarium were located at the coast, and Denmark is well-known of its coastline, so then you can get a glimpse at that too!

Biking is also super easy because Denmark is so flat. In other words, easy to explore the city. There were bikes for rent outside our hotel, and the rent was cheap and really easy to do if you have a smartphone. We stayed at Grand Hotel, which sounds really luxury, but it is luxury for a small amount of money! I believe we stayed there for 850 NOK, which is approximately 90$-ish. For a long-weekend it´s a really fair price I think, it was included breakfast!

INTERRAIL PLAN

Hey!

First of all, I want to thank for all the positive feedback that I´ve gotten on my posts, to see people liking my posts makes me smile. This was one of the reasons why I started this site, so I could share my photographs, and thoughts with others, and of course get some sort of feedback. I did not expect that I would get it so fast, and I´ve already gained a few followers, wihu!

Second of all, I have made a more detailed plan on how I want my interrail trip to be. So, after going through different countries, things to do in them, and what I wanted to do the most I was left with fourteen destinations.

This is how I think my trip will be:

I found a site named interrailplanner.com which worked excellent! I just simply put in the date I thought I would be traveling, and then started typing in which cities I want to go to, then it automatically finds out how long the train ride will be, and you can find hostels etc. to stay at directly from the page! Super easy, would recommend for all of those who are planning an interrail.

As you can see I will take the ferry from Oslo to Copenhagen, and from here my adventure starts.

Berlin: This is the second city I will visit, and I plan to stay here for two nights. I know that there is a lot of museums, and historic things to see here, like the Berlin wall. So in Berlin there will be plenty of sightseeing.

Amsterdam: Next stop is Amsterdam which I´ve planned to stay for one night even though there is a lot to do there too. I will definitely visit Anne Franks house, but I will probably roam around in the city with a bike.

Antwerp: This is a place I am hyped to go to. The reason for this is because a direct train from Antwerp will take me to  the “Tomorrowland” – festival! This is a huge festival with super famous, and great artists. So I will stay in Antwerp for some days because of the festival.

Zurich: After partying it´s time for some beauty, and there is no better place to discover that than Switzerland. I have been in Genévè before, so I decided to go to Zurich this time because I have never been there, and people tells me that it is sooooo gorgeous there. I am planning on taking a scenic train ride here, it is a great way to see the fantastic nature Switzerland has to offer.

Zagreb: Croatia baby! Zagreb is one of the cheapest cities in Europe, and I am on a budget (some times I seem to forget) therefore I will visit this city to save some money, and it is a really good place to stay because a direct train to split goes from Zagreb.

Split: …And that takes us to Split! This is one of the destinations I am looking the most forward to. It has breathtaking beaches, nice weather, yummy food, ah I can not wait! Here I will get my tan on, and relax. I have heard that there are some nice walking paths here to, so maybe I will do that to (if my lazyness does not kick in.)

Venice: After my chill days at Split, I will take of to a bigger city, Venice. I feel like this is a city I will eat on many different small cafes for some reason, and of course take a boat ride through the canals.

Rome: Departing to an even bigger city, Rome! My grandmother has been here many times, and she has fallen in love with it. Hopefully so will I.

Cagliari: Till this point, the train has been my ride. Now I will take the ferry as my transport, and I will first set sail for the island, Cagliari. This is an island in Italy, and I am not planning on staying here for long, and I have never heard of the place but I want to check it out, it can´t be that bad?

Palma: Then I will keep the ferry as my driver, and set over to Palma, a Spanish island. This is also a place I have never heard of, but I found it easier to cross the ocean to Spain, than taking the train all the way round.

Barcelona: Finally I will set my foot on land again, and it happens to be in Barcelona, a coincidence, don´t think so. Also one of my top destinations at this interrail. Well, what can I say, it is Barcelona. A beautiful city that offers about everything from art, history and beaches!

Madrid: I have been many places in Spain, but I never been to their capital, so I got to pay my visit. I´ve heard the nightlife here is great!

Monaco: My last country, but not destination. Monaco is the next city, and here I will live my life on a yacht and in full glam. Well, probably not, but who knows?

Paris: My last city, Paris! Here I will spend the rest on my money on clothes, before I will be heading home.

This is how my interrail trip looks for now, but there are so many places I want to visit, like Montenegro so there could be a change in plans, but then I will just update you on that later!

Are there any of you that know of any things I should see in any of these countries, or tips on hostels, restaurants etc. please leave a comment, it would make me very happy!
