Copenhagen, Denmark; and Malmö, Sweden

My flat mates and I decided to celebrate the end of classes by taking a trip to Copenhagen! We spent nearly 3 days in Copenhagen, Denmark and took at day to explore Malmo, Sweden as it was only a short train ride away!

We had a blast- spending time at the beach, parks, and touring the cities. Once we dropped off our bags at the hostel, we went straight for the beach with every intention to swim. The water was far too cold for that, but we enjoyed our time there nonetheless. Day two was spent on a city walking tour, which was free and brilliantly guided. Unfortunately it was pouring rain for part of the tour, but we did not let that stop us. After the tour, we took our own walking tour to see the little mermaid and the very interesting town of Christiania. Very different from anywhere I've ever been before!

Day three we took a train from Copenhagen to Malmo, Sweden. It was a small coastal city, where we took it easy wandering around and enjoying the parks and scenery. We went back to Copenhagen in the evening, and spent day four doing a bit of shopping and checking out the views from The Tower before catching our flight back to London.
