Hygge [hue-ugh] – Togetherness, relaxations, indulgence, presence and comfort. The pursuit of everyday happiness – the art of creating intimacy and cocoa by candlelight.

First thing’s first:

Copenhagen is my favourite city in the whole world. As soon as I landed back in London, I was already contemplating the possibility of someday living there.

Now that’s out of the way, here’s a little more about my time in Denmark and Sweden!

What better way is there of shedding your holiday blues than booking another holiday? While out in Vietnam, my girlfriend and I decided to head out to Copenhagen and Malmö in February to visit her parents.

I was so busy with work that I actually forgot we were going until about a week before. After one of the most stressful mornings of my life (don’t even ask), we finally boarded our flight and arrived safely in Copenhagen.

My first thought? Oh right, yeah – snow.

Living on the South Coast of England, it’s easy to forget about the concept of snow.

Copenhagen is absolutely beautiful. The architecture, the people, the food. Everything was good. It was also one of the most photogenic places I’ve ever been, helped by the fact that we actually planned our trip very carefully. Consulting Instagram before we left, we earmarked a bunch of sick locations to visit and beef up our Instagram profiles with.

The best of the bunch? The Gemini Residence.

Just as we thought we were never going to get in, someone left the building and allowed me just enough time to grab the door. We shot as fast as we could, knowing that we would probably get kicked out. Amazingly, we weren’t kicked out, and I had an an absolute field day shooting with my Nikon 14-24 in such a cool building.

Sit back and enjoy the view! There will probably be a Part Two for this blog, because I’m obviously heading back sometime soon.
