Our final day (morning, really) was the first cold day. It was about 5°c outside, and fortunately not raining. Oh, to have this weather for the whole trip – I could have worn my snow boots a lot more.
My Copenhagen trips used to follow to set formula for the last day:
- Lazy long breakfast
- Wander in either Magasin and/or Ilums
- Walk through Rosenborg Castle Gardens
- Baresso in Kongens Nytorv
This trip wasn’t much different – I am a creature of habit. We did consider adding a stop at the DØP hotdog stand to the itinerary but we were still full from breakfast which was a rookie mistake. Still regretting that.
Ilums tempted me with many pretty homeware items that I cannot afford, so after fondling a million very soft throws and putting a number of Ferm Living items on my wishlist, we headed out. Although not before a quick nosey around Sephora (quick, but long enough for me to whine about the fact there isn’t a Sephora in the UK).
I even allowed Husband a visit to Lego, although you’d have to be crazy to actually buy Lego in Denmark due to the exchange rate so we left empty-handed.
Rosenborg Castle Gardens were as lovely as ever, and we were treated to the insane sight of a woman brushing her corgi out in the freezing cold, surrounded by birds who she then hand-fed with bird feed from her handbag. We could not stop watching. Husband (having never had a dog) was asking me if it was normal that someone brushes their dog in a park. No. No it is not.
And then it was time for our final jul latte in Baresso, where we managed to get a seat before hundreds of tourists appeared. There were so many people, we couldn’t actually get out of the shop. I think we got too cocky in assuming ‘our’ Baresso would always be quiet.
We were very sad to be leaving our perfect anti-Christmas bubble (although not before I was felt up by security as Kastrup airport. Must find a nice non-wired bra for my next flight). The airport itself was crazy busy – I guess now Christmas had finished, everyone was taking the opportunity to fly here, there, and everywhere.
As for me, I already started planning my next trip before we even landed. Definitely somewhere warm next time though.

From all of this, the one thing I have to ask is, there’s no Sephora in England!?
No 😦 There was one about 15 years ago but it went under (I think). I’ll have to keep going back to Copenhagen. Or America!
There’s a billion Sephoras here!
I’m probably more likely to go to the Copenhagen one
