I’m a little sad to be leaving Copenhagen behind me.  It’s an amazing city.  I would love to spend more time there, but it is time to move along.

Copenhagen tips:

Get a prepaid SIM card for your (hopefully by now unlocked) smartphone.  Lebara is reasonably priced, but don’t make 20 minute long Skype video calls on it, it tends to run out your prepaid amount kinda quick.  I understand that 3 also offers prepaid SIM cards, but I wasn’t able to find one of theirs before finding Lebara.  Previous countries have had cell service provider kiosks in the airports, but Copenhagen did not.  I picked up my SIM card at a 7-11 in the airport.

Don’t bother with the Hop on/Hop off bus tour, unless you REALLY need a guided tour.  There are other, better options.  It’s over priced, the tickets are only good for 24 or 48 hours, and the buses only run 7 or 8 hours out of the day.  It takes 40 minutes for the bus to go its entire route, so if you stop at 2 or 3 of the stops for 2 or 3 hours each, that’s all you get.  Go with a multi-day pass for the local transit system.  It’s cheaper, about as efficient, works on more systems and will take you more places.

There’s lots of shopping available, if that’s what you’re looking for.  It’s not as EVERYWHERE as it was in Hong Kong and Tokyo, though.  You have to look for it a little.

The city is just as picturesque and beautiful as the travel bureaus would have you believe.  While I was here, the weather was lovely, 65-78 F, and at worst, partly cloudy.  It got a little chilly in my flat at night, but that was likely because I had to leave the window open to wait for the cat to come back in.

I would gladly visit Copenhagen again, if given the chance.
