Travel Guide: 40 hours in Copenhagen, Denmark (Part 1)

When I booked a weekend away to visit Copenhagen for the first time, I didn't quite realise how short a weekend actually is. I mean, I calculated that I had all of about 40 hours to cram everything I wanted to see in the Danish capital purely because I didn't want to use any of my precious annual leave days! Worked owed me a few hours from here and there which meant I booked myself onto a 4pm flight out of London Gatwick but it also meant that I had to be back at work for Monday morning so I was on a 10am flight out of Copenhagen Sunday morning. Here's what I got up to...

Having afternoon tea with Matthew Williamson AW15 at Balthazar Restaurant

Balthazar Restaurant Matthew Williamson afternoon tea

There are a few things I appreciate in life, and one of them is afternoon tea. It combines my love of food and tea, and when surrounded by good company, it's a lovely pastime and way to while away an afternoon. My latest afternoon tea came courtesy of a like minded friend who decided to celebrate her birthday inside Balthazar Restaurant, Covent Garden. Balthazar doesn't typically do an afternoon tea by first appearances but this is the Matthew Williamson AW15 edition which made it a little exciting for about seven girls.

View From The Top: Christiansborg Palace, Denmark

Copenhagen Christiansborg Palace Tower View
I love to travel exploring new places, eating new cuisines and understanding new cultures. But the thing that I love most when I travel is when I can do it on a budget.. or for free! One of the attractions I enjoyed most during my recent trip to Copenhagen from the view from the top of Christiansborg Palace. Yes, you go to the tower of a PALACE. And for free! How many places around the world can boast that?

I'm Off To ... Copenhagen, Denmark!

By the time you're reading this, I'll either be doing one of three things: 1) In duty free spending frivolously or frugally depending on how I feel, 2) waiting for my plane or 3) actually be mid-air headed towards Copenhagen, Denmark!

Kew Gardens Orchid Exhibition

Kew Gardens have just finished their latest exhibition about Orchids for 2016, and I had the great pleasure of visiting it while it was on. Unfortunately, I didn't manage to compose this post in time before it actually ended, but the flowers and subsequent photos are far too beautiful to not share with you all. There were some incredible plants there, a wonderful array of colours and such an incredible exhibition. Well, anything involving flowers is sure to win over a woman's heart right?
