⭐️ Copenhagen Travel Mini Diary ⭐️

~ Not sponsored, as always, but if you're interested, hit me up ;) ~

It's crazy to think that last week around this time I was actually in Copenhagen for a family-weekend and party. Anyways, I've had an amazing trip and of course I had to make a travel diary posts with some of my best pictures, OOTD's & stories.

(Confused that this post is in English? Scroll down a bit, there's a post explaining my sudden change in language down below xx)


It's almost becoming a ritual now; my aesthetically pleasing suitcase pictures. Anyways, here it is, and it's looking the best it ever has, even if I do say so myself. :)

story intervention 1.
Do you see that nice bottle of Mario Badescu rosewater in my suitcase? Well now it's probably rotting in a landfill somewhere since it got thrown away at the airport. It's kind of a stupid story, but I'm going to tell it anyway. The problem with it was the size of the bottle, not even the amount that was in it (it was half-empty but of course the security personnel didn't care).

So, imagine this; I'm stressing out, because I use that stuff for EVERYTHING, and now it's just gone. I'm not even being dramatic, I use that stuff as perfume, toner, setting spray, to calm down my redness and I occasionally even spray it in my hair (I'm weird like that). Long story short: I was panicking and going bananas at the airport over the loss of my ever so precious rosewater. Now that I'm sitting here writing about it it seems kind of funny, but trust me I couldn't laugh about it at the airport.

Luckily I wasn't the only one having some customs problems, as my grand-nephew found a knife in his bag (!!). Fortunately it wasn't a stilleto style-knife, it was more like a pocket knife, which meant it wasn't illegal and we were of the hook after it was thrown away. This meant that our trip started of very relaxed (not), both him and I were super tense for a moment after that.

We didn't do much that day, except for walking around Copenhagen with the family and taking some photos. Here you can see the iconic Nvyhayen, with its cute colored houses.
Later that evening we had a family dinner, which was very relaxed and casual, but still a lot of fun. I had taken a few Danish classes on Duolingo, which was a great party trick, even though I didn't come much further than "Goddag. Jeg er Sabrina" ('Good day, my name's Sabrina').

Saturday was also quite relaxed. We did some more walking and shopping (read: we went into Sephora for a bit and we frantically tried to find a café that had space for us, as we were with a group of eleven people xd).

There were a bunch of pretty and historical (and colourful) buildings around the city, which I really liked! Nvyhaven wasn't the only part of town with cute colored houses, they were virtually everywhere!

Taking pics for Insta was also on the menu, of course. 

fun story intervention 2.
So I'm a sleepwalker. I've kind of always sleepwalked and talked, but this day I woke up to a rather strange surprise xd.
I was fully dressed. Now when I sleepwalk I'm not 100% asleep, it's more like a 50/50 thing. I'm awake, but I still see dream-like things and react like I would in a dream. So imagine me waking up, and finding out I was fully dressed under the covers. I didn't just change my outfit while I was sleepwalking, no, I put on everything from socks to earrings (fortunately no shoes xd) and then went back to bed. The weirdest part is that I full-on remember doing this, but somehow saw it as a logical thing to do. It did save me a lot of time in the morning though, so I'm not complaining.

This was my outfit for the more fancy party that evening. It was still a lot of fun, but personally I prefer the more "informal" parties. Don't get me wrong, I love dressing up and chatting with everybody (and eating well of course), but the party had a lot more people that I didn't know at all and was a lot louder so it almost seemed like there was less talking going on then the night before.
Sheer top: Stradivarius // Belt: Christian Lagerwaard // Pants: Stradivarius // Earrings: Costes

Sunday was our main sight-seeing / shopping day. We didn't get to shop a lot, but we did see some sights and met the family for lunch.

The palace ^.

We went to the Little Mermaid as well, but it was kind of forgettable and crowded. I do think it's something you really need to see when you're in Copenhagen, but it wasn't very wowing at all. There were lots of tourists around, so you really had to fight for a spot to take a picture.

The statue was bigger then I expected! I expected it to be very small, but it was almost life-sized. There were even people climbing on top of it which I found so disrespectful. Climbing on top of statues like this is a big no-no.

Some snaps and pictures I made :).

Saw this and laughed, so had to include it :). This was at a little art gallery in the city.

We accidentally walked in a circle, so here's another Palace pic.

Anyways, we stopped for a chai latte and later went to have lunch with the fam. We had a late flight so we had all the time in the world to explore more, but at the end of the day I got sick. Fortunately it cleared right up before we got into the plane, and we think it may have something to do with that chai latte (I was convinced it was made with water, since it was clear, but my parents swore that they saw that it had been made with milk. We think the milk may have been bad).

And that was it for this little travel diary! I hope you enjoyed and found my stories somewhat funny. Thanks for reading and see you next week!
