The (Very) Little Mermaid | Copenhagen, Denmark, Copenhagen, Denmark (B)

For a long weekend at the end of October, I swooped a flight to Copenhagen! Because I had not yet met my new coworkers and I was planning farther ahead than anyone else wanted to, it soon turned into a solo journey to Denmark. I hadn’t traveled alone since my summer 2014 adventures, but because Denmark is considered to be one of the happiest countries in the world, I figured that I would survive three days by myself.

Flights to Copenhagen from other major cities in Europe are relatively cheap, I think my total cost was 60 euro return. Once at the airport, getting to the city center is an absolute breeze. Follow the signs for the metro/train/bus, buy a ticket at the kiosk (they are all the same price, the metro is the quickest and most painless in my opinion) and jump on. My hostel was closer to Nørreport station, so I took the M2 there. It was incredibly simple, reliable and quick.

I stayed at Generator Hostel Copenhagen which was excellent in terms of amenities and location. It is reasonably priced considering it is more of a hotel than a hostel. My complaint about it is how corporate it feels. There is no kitchen or communal space for food preparation, in fact, you cannot bring in your own food. This lost a lot of points in my book especially because Copenhagen is an incredibly expensive city! ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
