The day I met Serena, we really hit it off. She wanted to visit Christiania and I told her I wouldn’t mind going for the second time. So we took the metro, made a stop at Vor Frelsers Kirke (Our Saviours Church), and headed to the freetown of Copenhagen.

It was 6am when I woke up. The sky was dark but I could hear whispers, someone going up and down the bunk bed ladder, someone walking on tiptoe, a bathroom door being closed, and the tap water running. I knew everyone, except me, was wide awake and getting ready to go somewhere. But there I was, lying still and half awake.
Posterland sits on Gothersgade near the Rosenborg slot garden in Copenhagen. It is just a turn away from my hostel Generator Copenhagen. If you are into posters or postcards, this two-storey shop is worth a visit. And in Denmark, hanging posters on wall is something one must do when it comes to decorating home.
14 Dec 2014 Copenhagen, Denmark It was Sunday and it was the day Rebecca and Solveign sent me off to my hostel. And just like the day before, we walked. It was also the day I really felt like a serious backpacker because I was carrying a big backpack behind me and a small one in front of me. Pretty heavy stuff I had on my body and to walk 20 minutes with two heavy backpacks was not fun, at all.

When you stay with locals, they will offer to give a free general guided tour of their area. This was exactly what Solveign and Rebecca did on this day, except they are not from Copenhagen.
These two women, in their early 20s, are from Aarhus, the second largest city in Denmark. Solveign moved to Copenhagen to study nursing while Rebecca was just visiting – mainly to welcome me and explore the city together.
