Copenhagen ... Some Thoughts
I spent a couple of nice days in Copenhagen ... and I was grateful that it didn't rain nor snow (I am lucky to have chosen the weekend I did because if I had chosen this weekend with the artic temperatures all over Europe? Oh my, that would have been tough!).
Honestly speaking though (and you know me, I always try to be honest! haha) Copenhagen and I ... well, it wasn't love at first sight. Nor at second or third or fourth sight. I liked it but it wasn't a place of my heart. You know what I'm talking about. There are places you visit that just kind of speak to you. You feel at home. You want to soak it up. You want to come back.
It wasn't like that for me in Copenhagen. I liked it. The old town was cute. People were friendly. The museums nice. I liked walking the streets and the harbor tour.
No heart palpitations though.
Cute and like is not LOVE.
Some friends commented that maybe the reason for my ... mmh, how to call it? Maybe ... my remaining unaffected? Unresponsive? Anyway. Friends commented that maybe it had something to do with the fact that I visited during wintertime. Places have another vibe during summertime when the streets and piazzas are full of life.
But maybe not. If that were the case I would simply want to go back during summertime. It isn't the case though. No, I simply believe that not all places on this earth talk to you. I don't regret visiting though. Don't get me wrong. I enjoyed myself and it was a great weekend. It's just that I don't want to go back. Even though I still want to visit the North Sea and the Baltic Sea. Oh yes, very much so (I saw some fantastic landscapes from the plane!).
