A Guide to Copenhagen, City of Happy People

Denmark, Copenhagen Guide (B): A Guide to Copenhagen, City of Happy People

If Copenhagen were a person, that person would be generous, beautiful, elderly, but with a flair. A human being that has certain propensities for quarreling, filled with imagination and with appetite for the new and with respect for the old – somebody who takes good care of things and of people. Connie Nielsen

Copenhagen seemed to me like a city of happy people. The calmness is very visible there and the people smile a lot. The places close at 5pm and give plenty time of the day to enjoy life, which is much more than just work. I guess that this happiness comes from the common practice (or rather way of life) called hygge that Danish people seem to be following throughout their lives. Hygge is all about enjoying simple pleasures in life like a walk, spending time with loved ones, cooking dinner or even such a little thing as lighting a candle. Anyway, Copenhagen has been on ‘my list’ for a very long time. Years ago when I still lived in Scotland I thought of taking a little trip to Copenhagen, but always, somehow, warmer places were more tempting, so I would normally chose Spain or Italy over northern Europe. After a very long time of living in a desert of Atacama (by the way, click here to get a free guide to Atacama), where the abundance of heat and sun does not make me deprived of them anymore, Denmark, no matter how windy or rainy it might be, suddenly seemed even more attractive. ......
