Sunday we took a stroll through Columbia Road to visit the famous flower market which was beautiful but extremely busy. Who would have thought there are so many people buying flowers?! lol
I got home a few sunflowers which I love as they remind me of summer, fields, countryside, sunshine and all things sweet and nice.
After the market we went for lunch at the Smokehouse in Islington where I`ve had the most amazing Sunday roast. This for me represent the perfect Sunday: a bit fun, loads of food, and spending time with the people I love.
On another note I`m heading to Stockholm this weekend! If you have any tips of things to do, see, and restaurants to try, let me know!

Travel in Style: Copenhagen Photo Diary

Copenhagen was my first solo holiday travel destination and it was absolutely amazing! I spent there 4 days and took around 4,000 pictures. This is why this post is very photo heavy so I hope you`re on a good internet connection :). 

Nyhavn was one of my favourite areas, everything is so colourful and picturesque.

I loved the cute Tivoli Gardens that felt like some fairytale land, although it would have been great to come with someone to try the rides.

Copenhagen is a great destination for foodies. Nordic cuisine is what everyone is talking about recently and I could see why. Everything was super fresh and of great quality.

The great thing about travelling solo in Copenhagen is that you don`t have to worry so much about awkward solo dinners as there are small, cute cafes everywhere where people just chill out by themselves.

 Rosenborg Slot Castle also has a wonderful park.

 While in Denmark you have to try the classic Danish hot dog from a street stall which is absolutely the best hot dog I ever had.

Skt Petri Copenhagen Hotel Review

skt petri hotel review
Image source www.sktpetri.com
1. The room (12/20)
As I was travelling solo I had booked the single room which was good in size although the bed really felt like a single bed. The main disappointing thing about the room was the location which was situated exactly near the service staff lift and had no outdoor view, only view of the hotel lobby. Good thing though was that there was air conditioning which most hotel rooms in Copenhagen don`t have.

2. The breakfast & other dining options (14/20)
There was a good choice for breakfast. For dinner I have also tried the hotel restaurant on my last night as I was just so tired after so much walking during the day and it was actually pretty good. I had the steak which was beautifully cooked and of good quality. The chips were also really yummy and seemed to have been cooked in fat. So naughty yet so good.

3. The service (14/20)
The service was ok although they didn`t really go out of their way to make you feel welcomed. For a 5 star hotel I thought the service could be a bit more personal.

4. Location (18/20)
The hotel had a really good location situated just 20 minutes by direct train from the airport and in the heart of the Latin Quarter with loads of cafes and restaurants near by. All the major attractions are also within walking distance. I basically didn`t need to take any bus/taxi/tube to get around which was great.

Overall rating: 14.5 out of 20.
