The morning I left Copenhagen for good, I had spare time before boarding the train to Sweden. Everything’s so darn expensive in this city, but still decided to fuel up on a sweet oat porridge from Grød. Inside Torvehallerne, Copenhagen’s biggest food market, are some cute stands loaded with fresh products, smørrebrød, spices, coffee, flowers and so on. It’s a must see for any food lover. Ironically, on this departure day, the sun was (finally) shining.
Here’s a little mix of our trip to Malmö, Sweden and my last day in Copenhagen spent riding a bicycle, regardless of the eternal rain and cold. Spending five days in Copenhagen was enough to fall in love with the city, which I really miss.

My guidebook was so wrong. An exhibition was supposed to be held at the Danish Design Centre (DDC) and I was really excited about it. Unfortunately it was closed since 2012-2013 (?!? update please). Anyways, I managed to go upstairs, took a sneak peak at the office and have a look at the different fabrics and materials designers work with. Obviously, DDC is a dream workplace.
It was pouring, here and there, during our stay in Copenhagen. Mother Nature wasn’t really cooperating… Due to the heavy rain we stayed inside the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek and later on took a guided tour on a boat (next post). FYI, yes, Arne Jacobsen Series 7TM chair are so comfortable. Soon an article about my obsession with Danish design? Probably.
The rain came to say hello and we had to plan something to do. We strolled around the city centre before heading to Nørrebro (and fortunately the rain stopped), a hip neighbourhood that I really love! Especially Jægersborggade, a nice street where cafés, local design shops and great restaurants meet. Everything was closed but I made sure to come back during my stay.
