Departed from Pearson Airport at 7:45 to Copenhagen with a brief layover in Keflavik Airport in Iceland
My flight out of Iceland was delayed a small amount so Dakota was waiting for me at the airport. From there was took the train into central Copenhagen and wandered around as we waited for our check-in time. We took the bridge across the river into a new development called Krøyers Plads by the Danish firm COBE. Within the area is the famous restaurant NOMA, however it is closed while we are as it re-opening as a new restaurant called BARR.
Our hostel is adjacent to the Hyhavn harbourfront canal lined with 17th century colourful buildings. On one of the facades is a art piece by Ai Weiwei which is composed of 3500 life jackets used by refugees off the Greek island Lesbos. It is a seemingly popular area for tourists as all the of the south facing buildings have restaurants lined up along the harbour that are typically packed with people taking photos.
We didn't end up going out too late as I ended up napping at 6:00 for 2 hours! Our hosel was pretty nice and had a main floor bar. We ended up meeting two other Canadians, a guy from Montreal as well as a girl from Waterloo that has been living in Germany the last few months and was on her way back home.
