Copenhagen people: you are so lucky
I’ve visited quite a lot of places in the past month. Reykjavik was one of the places I knew I’d probably visit once in my life. Madrid was odd, interesting and at the same time disappointing, perhaps from my high expectation after hearing so much about it. Freiburg was too boring. Basel wasn’t very impressive either. But there was this one place I really fell in love with so much I wanted to just marry a random there: Copenhagen.
I have a rather odd set of criteria when it comes to which city I’d find attractive. Copenhagen is probably the first city that makes Melbourne inferior (to me at least).
First, I like cities where people are friendly, tolerant and can communicate with you (untick all Japanese, the UK and non-West Coast cities in one go). Second, that city must be compact, and by that I mean the ability to travel from any two points from the city within 30 minutes without owning a car (bye all Asian towns). Third, that city must have great connectivity to other places that are relevant to me. CPH Airport is sufficient. And this is where Melbourne is inferior in comparison. Australia is just too far from anything!
Damn you lucky Københavners. I’m jealous.
