Honestly, I don’t know where the time goes.
I’ve been in Germany for over a month (already?! Yeesh) and here I am, writing about spring in Copenhagen.
The weekend after my mom left, it seemed tourist season officially began. I walked through the city on April 2 just trying to shop and could barely move through the hoardes of slow walkers. Only days earlier had I walked the same streets with my mom without any problems.
In mid-April, the clouds began to occasionally clear to remind us all that the sun was still burning, even if we couldn’t see it. I took the opportunity to visit Bispebjerg Kirkegård in northern Copenhagen to see the cherry blossoms for which the cemetery has become famous.
The arrival of more regular sunny days meant I starting getting out of the house a lot more. I made sure to spend plenty of time in as many parks as possible.
I even went back to the Botanical Gardens to see some actual plants growing there.
Without gloomy clouds hanging over the rooftops, I bought a ticket to walk up the Round Tower and get a nice view of the city.
The spring sunshine brought some much needed life into Copenhagen. Suddenly everyone was outside all the time. I felt energized and ready to try new things. I even dared to spend some of my precious money on non-essential things like *gasp* eating out.
I wore gloves and earmuffs into May because the wind continued to be ice cold, but we did have a few days at the beginning of the month where the temperature exceeded 25°C. My ride home from work became a bit more dangerous as people covered every available space in Islands Brygge.
I really can’t blame them though. It may have been short, but springtime in Copenhagen was just what I needed.
