In order to save some money and because we had booked an earlier flight out, we decided to pull an ‘all nighter’ of sorts and thankfully had no problems doing just that. First off was a a 5 hour stop at Tivoli Gardens. Now when the theme park in the middle of the city opens the night you are in town for winter and is covered in lights and winter decorations you go. Add to that the fact it is the second oldest theme park in Copenhagen, but one of the most well known and has been around since the early 1800s AND the fact that you can get an unlimited ride wristband & entry into the park for the equivalent of $50 US, it’s a no brainer. We rode every ‘thrill’ ride and although some were slightly terrifying at first, we got to the point where it was comical to be spinning in a circle on a giant arm going so fast you could barely see anything other than colors.
After finally leaving Tivoli at closing time we stopped into The Living Room, a cute bar that feels like a ‘living room’ and is complete with good music, crafty drinks and mint tea that blew my mind.
Being in Copenhagen, we both tried Carlsberg and having heard about Rose Lemonade cocktails, I was excited to see one on the menu. Both were fantastic and after reading about Copenhagen on the Fashionlush blog (one of many that I follow) I had been in search of fresh mint tea. I forgot the place she wrote about but we just happened to end up at The Living Room anyways and they came through & honestly, I don’t know if I can go back to the basic bagged stuff after this. Basically, it’s hot water, mint leaves and a rock candy sugar stick and it’s heaven in a cup.
After a 3am train to the airport and a few hours of sitting around, we boarded our flight back to London and proceeded to sleep for about 14 hours (IT WAS AMAZING).
