This is the half way of our trip, and it is the time of travel weekend. I feel grateful to have an opportunity study abroad to Germany and have my own time to travel another European country. After me and my friends had a long conversation, we decided the travel destination will be Copenhagen, Denmark.
Copenhagen has always been my dream traveling place. This time I made it! Copenhagen is the home of fairy tales and the home of Andersen. Copenhagen is also full of ancient architecture, but with the relaxed atmosphere unique to the Nordic countries, this small Copenhagen is full of modern atmosphere.
We only have three days of travel time and choose to arrive early in the morning to start our trip. When we got off the plane, we went straight to the very famous breakfast shop in Copenhagen to experience the specialties – open sandwiches and specialty coffee. I think that food is the most direct way to reflect the local culture and history, from its visual taste to feel the local lifestyle.
After eating, we started the plan: travel through Copenhagen city. We arrived at the famous tourist destination – Nyhavn. This is an artificial canal with many colorful houses on both sides of the river. (Great choice for my section drawing) Due to its colorful view, many tourists are taking photos here. As the opening of the canal promoted the economic development of the King’s New plaza. However many traditional site changed, for example, those old sailor’s bar was replaced by commercial restaurants. Also, in recording people said that Andersen was living here for a while.
I am a museum super fan. Every time when I get to a place, museum will be one of the important place to go. Denmark has its own unique artistic style and design style, which everyone calls it — Danish Design. During this trip I chose to visit the Design Museum, and this visit brought me a lot of fresh understanding and ideas about Danish design. The special exhibition is: the historical evolution of more than one hundred chairs. The evolution of these chairs reflects the free pursuit of Danish art for modern art. Due to the influence of German Bauhaus concept to Danish Design, this museum also specially built the Bauhaus art activity area for letting people experience the concept of Bauhaus.
