The Square Copenhagen Hotel Review

Sunday, 10th January, 2016


As you knowย I visited the beautiful city of Copenhagen just before Christmas for a short break, and loved the city. I stayed in The Square hotel, which is a 4 star hotel located very central, in Rรฅdhuspladsen.

I was looking around for a couple of week’s to find a hotel, and I found this one pretty fast. I did search for other hotels, but after contemplating a few things which I will go into below, I settled for The Square, and I am fairly happy I did ๐Ÿ™‚

Copenhagen – A Tivoli Christmas

Thursday, 17th December, 2015


I went to Tivoli when I was in Copenhagen….Actually I went twice!

On my first night I went, and after an hour or so it started to rain, my camera battery actually died because I was taking photos all day, I do have a spare but did not take it out with me since I’ve never ran a battery out in only one day!

Anyway I went back the next night because it’s such a great place.

At Christmas it truly is a Winter Wonderland, and it’s definitely a good way to spend an evening or two (or more!). There’s so much to do; If you just want to walk around and take it all in you can, there’s plenty to see and lots of places to eat and drink.

Copenhagen – Nyhavn Day And Night

Wednesday, 16th December, 2015


I spent a bit of time in Nyhavn, it’s a really nice part of Copenhagen. If you’ve ever seen Copenhagen in pictures, on TV or online, then you’ll have probably seen the buildings with the colourful fronts which look so cool!

It’s a harbour with plenty of restaurants and bars, and is a must see place. At one end of the canal there’s a bridge where people have put love locks on, not as many as other bridges but it looks nice ๐Ÿ˜›

Here’s some of my pics ๐Ÿ™‚

Copenhagen City – By Night

Wednesday, 16th December, 2015


Copenhagen is a cool city in the day time, but at night it always looked beautiful. Since it’s Christmas there’s plenty of Christmas trees around, all lit up, which look nice and festive. One of the Christmas markets had a big wheel which really stood out on the evening and was all lit up. The building near my hotel has the entire outside lit up too, in really cool LED lights which change colour and also create patterns like heart shapes. It looks amazing in real life, I think the pictures do it justice ๐Ÿ™‚

I am back from Copenhagen!

Actually, I did come back Sunday, but I have been busy with work, resting and of course having to edit a huge number of photos for the blog! ๐Ÿ˜› I was unsure how to organise these blog posts so I am just going to dive in and separate them by day, night and the odd place I loved ๐Ÿ™‚

Travelling Is Overrated: Why I Hate To Travel

Is Travelling Overrated? Why I Hate To Travel

Why is everyone obsessed with travelling? At least, that’s how it can seem sometimes.

But I actually think travelling is overrated. Not going places, not having holidays, but the travelling itself, and everything about it.

Let me explain…

For a couple of years now I have said I wanted to do one thing; Travel to different places. My aim is to go abroad at least once a year…If you are a frequent traveller or one of these who thinks jet-setting is the meaning of life, or you use the word ‘nomad’, that will not seem very ambitious.

Why I Hate Travelling

If you love holidays and love to experience new things then you’ll wonder how someone can even ponder not liking to travel. The end result of it all is almost always great, but it’s the build-up, the preparation and tedious planning which is something I hate.

What To Wear In Iceland

What To Pack For A Trip To Iceland

As you will know if you are a regular reader of my blog, I went to Iceland in the Autumn of last year. It’s a great place, with a big variety of things to do, and with each different type of activity, different clothing may be required, and it will also depend on what time of the year you’re going.

Will you be spending more time in the city of Reykjavik or are you getting a secluded cabin out in the countryside? Packing the right things can be challenging, especially when you’re going somewhere for the first time.

Reykjavik: Day 3 – Blue Lagoon & Home Time

Sunday, 14th September, 2014


After Saturday night out in Reykjavik I needed to chill.We had already booked the Blue Lagoon which was a really good idea, however the bus picked us up at 9:30AM and I got in at 5AM….So I only had around 3 hours sleep! :mrgreen:

The Blue Lagoon is a geothermal spa, basically a large lagoon which is heated up by the earth. It’s probably the best way to unwind after our Saturday night in Reykjavik, and best way to waste a day when waiting for a flight;

Far, far better than trying to kill time wondering around bored which I’ve had to do on other holidays! ๐Ÿ˜› Unfortunately it was the only day it properly rained, but I guess that didn’t matter so much since we were in water anyway, and it was so warm! ๐Ÿ˜›

It’s a cool place, you go in and have a shower, then there is a small pool indoors, and the large lagoon outside. I got the โ‚ฌ60 package which included priority entry to the lagoon, a drink, robe and towel and some skin products.

The lagoon is all different depths throughout, it goes down to around 1.5m so you can easily stand, and in places it’s so shallow you can sit on the floor and not be under the water. It’s pretty big, and even though it was pretty busy there was plenty of space for you to relax or have a wonder.

I got a waterproof pouch for my phone so I could talk pictures while I was in…Thank god it worked! ๐Ÿ˜›

From the Blue Lagoon we headed to Keflavik airport to catch our flight. The only bad thing was that the last bus from the Lagoon was at 3PM and we did not need to be at the airport until 6!

But the Blue Lagoon is definitely worth going to if you ever visit Iceland ๐Ÿ™‚
