I was invited to a friend’s wedding in Stockholm. Now, having been to Stockholm twice, and seeing all the cool local things, I did not have a strong interest in making an extended trip out of this destination wedding. Instead I decided to a spend a few days in Copenhagen. Why so short? Because that Monday I had anther wedding in New York (but more on that later.)
I like to find interesting things in whichever city I visit. The highlight of this trip was absolutely the Olympus Playground. The camera company sponsors a “playground” for amateur and profession photographers. You get to wander around a warehouse with a borrowed Olympus camera. There are installations and unique setups which are a dream to shoot. The playground is a traveling exhibition through Europe. How lucky was I to be in Copenhagen on the second day it was opened! I practically had the whole place to myself.
Exploring Copenhagen was an adventure in itself. It was a lot chillier than I expected for July. I had a delicious meal at Guerilla restaurant in CPH’s meatpackimg district (3 blocks from the playground!) in addition to the typical tourist spots like the Little Mermaid statue, Nyhaven and Trivoli Gardens. Let’s be honest here-I really wen to Copenhagen just for the Little Mermaid.
Now, the reason for this trip, A Castle Wedding! What an amazing, spectacular, unique day that was bursting at the seams with Love. A ceremony where I cried tears of Joy, a dinner with interesting people and endless number of toasts, finished with dancing and some of the best cake I’ve ever tasted. I love my friends and this trip ended with a real life fairytale.
