So, just in time for the beginning of the week, the weather in Denmark decided to take a turn for the worse - it feels a good 10 degrees colder than yesterday, plus, it started snowing today. But not the nice kind of big, soft flakes, but the annoying, almost-rain kind, paired with strong winds that blow the stuff right in your face and the cold right through all the layers of clothes. So the best thing to do really is this:
However, yesterday was a very pleasant day. Yes, it was cold and yes, it was windy, but there was some sun, too, and that makes everything better.
I was meeting a friend in the city, and as I was a little early, I took a little trip into Magasin - I swear, just to take a look! - and whoops! found an awesome Filippa K dress on sale. Score!
As we walked out of the store, we saw the Royal Guard on their way to Amalienborg for the daily changing of the guards. So we decided to follow them and watch it a little bit (not that I haven’t seen it about a dozen times, with the viking boyfriend having been a “garder”, but I still really enjoy it!).
As I said, it was cold, so we decided not to watch the entire ceremony, where they walk around the courtyard and change every single guard separately, but instead head to nearby café Mormors (Grandma’s) on Bredgade. I’ve been here before and I really like this place - it’s an adorable mix between a café and a souvenir/ decoration/ toy store, complete with some cool antique interiors. I can only recommend their coffee and sandwiches, and be sure to try one of the freshly made juices or smoothies. And if you’re in the mood for something sweet, they have a great selection of pastries, cupcakes, cookies etc. Definitely a great place for a Sunday afternoon coffee!
All in all, a very enjoyable Sunday! And now please excuse me, I have to get back to wrapping myself in seventeen blankets, putting on wool socks, and drinking obscene amounts of hot chocolate!
But don’t despair, I’m leaving you with this message seen at Kongens Nytorv:
