My boyfriend and his friend were participating in World Masters Rowing Regatta, which was held in Copenhagen, Denmark. At first they were only talking about it, but soon they’ve decided they really want to go and compete. Regatta was at the beginning of September, so they still had enough time to prepare themselves.
Copenhagen is one of my favourite cities in Europe. I’ve been there two years ago and fell in love with Denmark, so I wanted to go back at some point. And there it was, an unexpected opportunity to go back and explore Denmark again. They were kind enough to take me with them, as a moral support (haha!).
It’s been only a fortnight since returning home from the USA, and it was time to leave again. Despite of course going back to Denmark, the thing I was most thrilled about was a cooler climate. I got so sick (putting it mildly!) of heat and humidity while we were travelling across the USA. That’s why the idea of Denmark and it’s climate felt so good haha.
We found a cute airbnb apartment in the centre of Copenhagen, which was for four persons. That’s when my mom also decided to come with us.
As soon as we landed we first decided to find our apartment and unpack. It looked really awesome in the pictures, but in reality … it was UNREAL. I’m not even overreacting. It was sooo beautiful, cosy, stylish, clean and it was located in the city centre.
At first I thought it was a joke! Despite good looks and cleanliness, book shelves were full of great books, lonely planet guides, magazines and albums (which is definitely a huge plus for me!). What else could you possibly ask for?
My boyfriend and his friend had three races in three days. Regatta was held on a lake Bagsvaerd, north from Copenhagen. First two days me and my mom couldn’t watch them , because we flew to Stockholm ( more about that in my following blog posts, so don’t miss it !). We came to see the last race they had. And the best (and unexpected!) thing was that they won all three races and got three medals! Me and my mom obviously did great job with the moral support haha! No, I was really really proud of them and they deserved it!
