"The Danes are, overwhelmingly, a happy bunch. In fact, if you believe those contentment surveys that come out every couple of years, Denmark is one of the happiest nations on earth with some of the best quality of life. Along winding cobbled streets Danes shop and dine at some of the most exciting places in Europe. Copenhagen’s restaurants have more Michelin stars than any other Scandinavian city, and Denmark as a whole would doubtless have more still if the inspectors from Michelin ever troubled themselves to leave the capital and head for Aalborg or Århus & around. Even standards in a workaday Danish café are generally very high." [link]
I'm traveling by myself over the EID holidays and visiting one of my German friends who lives in Copenhagen. She is going to introduce me to her Danish posse and show me around during her free time from work. I booked a nice hotel and I plan to do some serious damage to my bank card. All I have to say is what happens in Denmark stays in Denmark. ;)
You can follow my trip daily on Instagram starting Friday, while I drink, eat, shop and tour myself around the beautiful land of the Vikings.
Happy EID Kuwait!
