Copenhagen is a wonderful city that never cease to amaze us. Every time we’ve visited the Danish capital we’ve discovered new corners, restaurants, shops and things to do. A couple of weeks ago we got up early, wrapped up and headed to Nyhavn to board in a little cruise that showed us a majestic Copenhagen that we’d never seen before.
Christmas means family gatherings and let’s face it: as much as we love our families, they could be difficult sometimes (to say the least). Coping with family stress is one of the most usual problems during the holiday season, so why not go on a little Christmas adventure? A different environment may help and, well, if you have an argument with your mother/ father/ aunt/ cousin/ brother, you can always go for a walk afterwards and discover a new place!
After a whole day of exploring, we decided to hop on a boat at sunset. It wasn’t planned, it just happened. We were exhausted but we curled up in an almost empty boat and enjoyed a peaceful, quiet cruise that showed us Amsterdam from another angle. The water was calm and we felt that we were the only ones wandering through the canals.
I’ve always wanted to go on a cruise. Maybe it has to do with my childhood obsession with The love boat TV series (I secretly wanted to grow up and become just like Julie). I love the idea of enjoying life surrounded by the sea, sunbathing all day long sipping a fruity cocktail and visiting different cities without having to pack and unpack… and pack again. It’s perfect! But I don’t see myself in one of those huge cruise ships full of people that I don’t know and, let’s face it, that probably I won’t like. I’m in my 30s. I know I’m antisocial by now.
