Weekend in Copenhagen

We kicked off June and the summer with a long weekend in Copenhagen. The weekend started with an rather early flight on a Friday, 6 in the morning, but after leaving our luggage at the hotel we rented bikes that many of our friends recommended and set off with the whole day in front of us to explore. 
Actually this was the first time we rented bikes in a large city and for Copenhagen it was perfect! The whole city is adapted for it, lots of bike paths and plenty of space in the traffic. Another important thing, the drivers were careful.
After three day there we had probably seen most of the 'tourist' parts. Our favourite places were along the harbour with all the nice places to spend days just watching time pass by, especially Christianshavn with its relaxing and energizing atmosphere. Not to forget all the parks that are amazing and plenty.
Another thing of importance to us is the food :) which was great. Sea food and of course I finally got to try out open-faced sandwiches (smörrebröd) which were a work of art. Recommend strongly restaurants Aamanns and Musling.

Copenhagen is for sure one of the best cities in Europe.

Graffiti festival

In the beginning of May, a graffiti festival 'Spring Remake' was held close to where I live. The area is a small industrial site and since 2014 it has been a legal place for graffiti and occasional rave party.
It is great to have that kind of place for artists do their magic :)
Don't appreciate when there is graffiti or tags in places where it's not supposted to be.
Back to the festival, this year it was around 100 artist from all over the world transforming the walls, and around 10 000 people was there to see it this year (its growing each year!). There was not only graffiti but foodtrucks and music in the evenings, so its worth to go there and see it all.
I was there just before they opened in the mornings, that's why there is few people in the pics :))
