Ow yes! The city I always wanted to visit has finally been ticked off my bucket list. Copenhagen, the most amazing city of Scandinavia. So it seems. I’ve never been to Stockholm or Oslo so I can’t say but I do agree that Copenhagen is really cool. We went for a day last week during our first week of holiday in Denmark but we will go back for another visit shortly.
Me and the pram :-)
What did we see in Copenhagen?
Well, we saw Tivoli, the amusement park in the city centre from outside the gates. We walked through Strædet, the less crowdy but really awesome shopping street of Copenhagen. We went in the Hay House of Copenhagen. Oh my… I wish I could buy the entire store. More about the Hay House later this week. And… We walked around Nyhavn and back to the city again.
Copenhagen with a baby
For some of you it could be useful to know how it was to visit a city with a baby. Jaya is three months old at the moment and this is her first holiday. I took several things with us for her. For example, our Little Frog Baby Sling but also the travel cot for on the pram. I love the sling when we are going to walk for a few hours but when I’m visiting a city, I know that we will have lunch at one point, a coffee here and a drink there so than, I thought, it is very useful to take the pram so she can sleep in there and I can drink my hot drinks and stuff. The sling is something for emergencies for us actually, because when Jaya doesn’t feel so well she loves to be close to us in the sling.
The weird thing about Denmark and baby’s is that prams are not allowed into a cafe or restaurant due to fire regulations. So, everyone leaves their prams outside. Some of them with the baby still inside and some take the travel cot off the pram and inside. Baby’s sleep outside in their travel cot a lot in Scandinavia. They use very thick and warm blankets, cover the travel cot with lots of rain covers and insects nets and leave them in their gardens or on the terrace.
