I nipped over to Copenhagen last week for a little getaway. Really enjoyed the city!

There also happened to be a four night moving street rave called ‘Distortion‘ that was taking place. Very fun and different.

Did a free walking tour for 3 hours with ‘Copenhagen Free Walking Tours‘ that I highly recommend!

Checking out the old palace..burnt down and rebuilt twice!

Not entirely sure what this building is but as a designer I really enjoy the copper roof.

Our guide Igor giving us a talk en-route from the Palace. Denmark has the coolest Monarh in existence I’d venture.
