Copenhagen is one of those places that you always say ‘oh it would be nice to go there’ but it never really makes it any further up on your list of priorities. To me, most of the Scandinavian countries sit in the same boat, so this summer, I decided to tackle three countries in 8 days.
Rather than fly into the beautiful city – which may have seemed like the logical way to travel – I travelled by train from Germany. This in itself was an amazing experience. A few hours on the train, followed by a short ferry ride from Puttgarden to Rødbyhavn and then another couple of hours on a different train – although the ferry ride was due to some sort of technical difficulty, because apparently the train actually goes over the water…on its own ferry.
