Flying over to Northern Europe this time of year means that even on a night flight it never gets fully dark. I took the first image at 2:00 am off Greenland. When I was a little girl and going to visit the grandparents I loved to stay up and watch the sunrise on this flight…which might be why I don’t sleep on planes even to this day!
When I got to Copenhagen the first thing I had was a piece of Weinerbrød and a cup of coffee. Weinerbrød is the classic Danish breakfast pastry and it is as far from a ‘Danish’ as a pastry can get. Ironically, if you translate the word 'Weinerbrød’ you get 'Vienna Bread’. Come to think of it that was the last thing I ate, I probably need some gelato!
The final picture is a display at Illums a fantastic Danish design store.
It was actually really, really hard to be in Copenhagen and not see my family or spend any time in the country. My next trip I will have to tack a few days on in DK.
