A late evening in February at 23.00 my friend texted me about a flash deal expiring within the hour on bus tickets from Flensburg to Copenhagen. For the next hour I flipped through my calendar and scoured available tickets. At 23.55 I booked two trips for my husband and I to go to Copenhagen in the spring.
In March we took our first trip and even though it was rainy and cold, we had so much fun. I love traveling, exploring and discovering new places and things- or even re-discovering old favorites!
For two days we bundled up in our rain-gear, threw on our backpacks and walked the streets of Copenhagen in the rain. I loved the spontaneity of the trip. The life of the streets there. The views. And even the rain.
Our last trip was at the beginning of April. The weather was beautiful and the streets were full of life! I hadn’t brought my camera on our last trip, but decided to this time around! We hit all of the main tourist attractions like Amalienborg castle, Rundetaarn and Nyhavn, but one of the highlights of this past trip was absolutely Bispebjerg Kirkegaard!
Once a year in the spring, this cemetery blooms into a cloud of pink cherry blossom clouds, and walking through the blossoms I was reminded of my time in Japan. These blooms brought so much warmth and joy and hope to my soul and it felt like the perfect promise at the end of winter that spring is truly on its way!
These two spontaneous Copenhagen trips were exactly what I needed, and the perfect reminder of how important it sometimes is and how refreshing it can be to disrupt the flow of every-day routine for a little adventure every now and then!
