Went to the Cotswolds for the weekend and our first stop was Daylesford farm. It was the most magical place! Daylesford is a sustainable farm that sells organic local produces. The aesthetics of the place is to die for! They have 1000 natural juices, a cheese room, a flower shop, a spa... We drank our coffee in the sun next to the outdoor fire pits. Their Instagram account is fun to follow!
Danes are the happiest people on earth and you can definitely feel it in the air when you visit the beautiful city of Copenhagen. CPH must be amazing on a warm summer’s day, but we went off season in November and and we were treated with a wet-slushy snow storm.
Fortunately, the Danes invented something that made us forget all about the weather: “Hygge”! This word translate to “the complete lack and absence of anything annoying” and means cozy apartments, candlelight rooms at any time of the day, and good people and food around. No wonder that Danes are the biggest candle burners in the world!
Copenhagen is a foodie destination. Lots of restaurants and grocery shops offer a large variety of organic-vegan options. Obviously, these healthy treats often come with a rather hefty price tag, but so does everything in Copenhagen. I guess it is the price to pay to be in such a beautiful city!
Danes are lovely (and hotttt) people, but their language is so hard to understand. Etienne and I really tried our best, but in the end we were only able to say Hai = Hi (pronounced Haiiiiiiii) and Tak =thank you. Fortunately, their English is perfect!
A recommandation I would give before visiting the Country is to read the book A Year Living Danishely; the story of a journalist looking to find the Dane's secret to happiness. Trust, pride and lots of pastries are amongst some of these.
We flew from Stanstead to Copenhagen Airport and we rented a little apartment on Airbnb in the hip neighbourhood of Nørrebro. The train is very convenient to get from the airport to the city.
Here is a quick peak of our weekend in CPH. Hope it inspires you to go or gives you ideas if you have planned a trip!
