A Day Trip to Medieval Lund

Sweden, Lund Guide (B): A Day Trip to Medieval Lund

It was a normal, gloomy day in early February. My friend Lula and I were sitting in the reading room at uni. I was trying my best to read, but I kept getting distracted by travel images running through my head. Ever since I returned back to Denmark from Iran, I’ve been dying to get on the road again and explore something new. There’s not much to do in Denmark during the winter months, and I felt like I needed to spice up my everyday life a bit. I started researching the internet, looking for cheap flights and day tour options. I asked Lula if she wanted to go with me, and she was just as enthusiastic. The only problem was that neither of us had big money to spend. I had no job at the time (just recently got one at an open air museum!), and I was saving my money for the eclipse trip to USA in August. So we decided to go for a day trip, and the Swedish city of Lund seemed like the perfect choice, being close to Copenhagen, cheap to get to (just 109 DKK for return tickets with Flixbus!), and very historically interesting. We wrote to our friend Zille and asked if she wanted to join us, and she did, so on February 16th, we were off to Lund. We left Copenhagen at 7 AM, and arrived in Lund 90 minutes later. We had the entire day to explore – in fact we also had the entire evening, as our bus home to Copenhagen was at 10 PM. We decided to make the most of the day and see everything of interest, resulting in sore feet and legs for all three of us! ......
