Embrace the way locals do it!  Biking is the best way to see the city.

I didn’t visit Tivoli on my first trip to Copenhagen so this time we went and saw a ballet of Cinderalla with a couple of Annette’s friends.  Loved meeting Katie and Sherina! Tivoli is famous for being the 2nd oldest operating amusement park in the world.Copey2017-1

My friend Mandy told me about this food truck, Hija de Sanchez, in Torvehallerne. The chef used to be the pastry Chef at Noma, a famous Danish restaurant located in Copenhagen.  Two out of the three were yum!Copey2017-7

And (surprisingly) loved the avacado ice pop with caramel and freeze dried raspberries!

Annette and her friends, Tabita and Rose, made breakfast each morning which was such a treat!  The morning we returned from Corsica Tabita brought us breakfast – homemade rolls, cheese, pastries, fruit, eggs.  Here’s Annette the next morning making breakfast sandwiches.  I was spoiled!  Breakfasts with these girls was so hyggeligt!Copey2017-26I wanted to bring them all back to the states with me! 🙂Copey2017-28Copey2017-27Annette taking some photos of me doing my thing Copey2017-8Copey2017-12Admiring Amagertorv

We biked around some more (of course) on my last day there.  I saw the International School where Annette teaches, right on the harbor.  We met up with some of her friends (some new to me, some old!) and got some ice cream.Copey2017-29
In the Metro on our way to Höst, a nice restaurant Annette had been waiting to visit!  We made reservations for our last night together.  Friends.  It was seriously the best meal we’d ever had.Copey2017-32Copey2017-33
We ordered the three course meal, but they sneak in 4 extra dishes so we had plenty of delicious bites to try.  This is me in my happy place, ha!

Here was our menu.  Some of it sounds kind of different but it was all perfect.  We also had champagne then white, red and dessert wines.
-Baked Witch flounder with peas, shrimp and roasted chicken skin
-Grilled pork neck from Grambogaard with corn, cherries and pickled Wood ear”
-Rosehip ice cream with red and green strawberriesCopey2017-35

That’s 31 years of friendship right there!  Love this girl to pieces and I soaked up every minute of our time together since we don’t get as much face to face time these days as I’d like.  But we make the most of it when we do.  Cheers to our fun times in Copenhagen!
