Not just well equipped in technology and always competing with the first world nations, but Nordic countries are also the most pristine bits of Europe! Be it for safety or commuting, they are a great choice for those who have just taken a plunge into solo travel! I remember when I was traveling in Austria in February '17, I bumped into a pleasant Danish ski-guide who juggled between odd jobs over summer and his dream profession in winters. Having come from the beer-drinking Danish capital was a matter of pride to him and oh, what a jolly man! After the little things he told me about Denmark, I had one more country to add to my bucket-list. And sure enough, I had a great time in Denmark. With south of Sweden being just half an hour by train from Copenhagen, it was a weekend well-spent. PS: I deliberately planned my first visit here in autumn, because fall colours always add to the beauty of any place :)
My Saturday started in the Swedish big-city of Malmo. It was a direct train ride from the Copenhagen airport. Having had an airport layover the previous night, the 'Kanelbulle' or this delicious Swedish Cinnamon roll gave me enough calories to explore the city :D
With fall peaking in October, I didn't feel the need to go looking for nature getaways in faraway national parks because even the famous public park in the heart of the city welcomed me with a foliage of birch trees. So every turning was an avenue of yellow, orange and red. Here and there, locals kayak'ed and carried on fishing in the little natural lakes that were everywhere. After spending almost the entire morning strolling in the park, I decided to head to the harbour and see a little bit of the town.
