The very quick flight from London to Copenhagen lasted a little over one hour. I kept on falling asleep. I was SO EXHAUSTED! From the plane, even though it was past 10p.m., there was still some sunlight! I would discover a few hours later that the sun would rise over Copenhagen before 3a.m. Anyhow, I got on bus 540S to get to the Sleep-In Heaven hostel. I was worried that I would miss my stop but the friendly bus driver reminded me when to get off, in Danish of course. Once off the station, I walked a few blocks and found the place after another friendly man pointed me in the right direction.

The "Sleep in Heaven" establishment turned out to be more like "Sleep in Hell". I was feeling a bit disoriented and especially out of place. I would be sharing a room with 14 other people and I didn't want to wake anyone up. Then there was my luggage. The luggage was almost too big for the locker so I had to take out what I needed and leave the rest in the locker. Eventually, I ended up upstairs and decided to write in my journal since I was restless. When I was finally tired enough, I carefully cracked the door open and made my way to the bed. It must have been around 2a.m. at this point. I went to bed knowing that in a few hours, Maria would be arriving from Lund, Sweden to explore Copenhagen along with me.

Back in March, I met Maria Westergreen from Sweden during my trip to South America. She only lived one hour away from Copenhagen by train and she had agreed to hangout that day. She came by the hostel exactly as scheduled. It was great to see her! I would have never imagined that I'd be able to see her so quickly. She and I wasted no time as we quickly began our sightseeing. At the same time, we caught up on some important events that had taken place in the last few months. We had a great day of sightseeing that included a visit to the Little Mermaid (Copenhagen's landmark). The Little Mermaid was created by Hans Christen Anderson, from Denmark. This year marks his would-be 200th birthday. After lots of walking, our grumbling stomachs signaled it was time for lunch. We had a delicious yet pricey lunch at the famous Nyhavn Canals.
