Mathew in CPH

For the past week my good friend Mathew has been visiting me in Copenhagen. It has been such amazing weather the whole time so we have done a lot of walking around the city and a lot of eating outside ! It's been a lot of fun showing my current home to him. Some highlights from his trip have been :

getting flødeboller and pizza on his first night

taking a canal tour - this picture is where the boat left from - Nyhavn - the most photographed place in CPH

oon the tour - the Royal Playhouse on the left and the Copenhagen Opera House on the right

enjoying the amazing Indian summer !

people watching in Amagertorv...

...and eating nachos !

shopping in the upscale department store Illum - we both really liked these huge oil candles

taking a lovely Saturday stroll through Christianshavn - note all the people chilling on the side !

taking a walk through Christiania - they had such great decorations up for its 40th birthday celebration.
we had planned to take a guided tour but it seems about par for the course that the tour guide didn't show up ;P

going to an Oktoberfest themed party at my old dorm

taking a walk to Nørrebro in search of the perfect hangover cure - fresh air, cake, and falafel

and last but not least - MORE CAKE ! from a fancy cake shop in CPH - La Glace. this one had :
A base of pumpkin meringue, mascarpone, caramelized and salted pumpkin seeds with a chocolate mousse made of 65% cocoa. The cake is filled with raspberries, enrobed with chocolate ganache and decorated with pumpkin seeds.

this one was their speciality and has been being made since 1870. it had :
crushed nougat, whipped cream, macaroon bottom and caramelized choux pastry.

At this point I pretty much feel the way the last photo looks :P I'm sad for Mathew to leave tomorrow but I am excited to get back to my regular schedule, a workout routine, and a 21 day sugar detox !
