Travelling to Denmark & Sweden

So the day has arrived that I embark on another trip, this time to Denmark and Sweden. Copenhagen and Malmo to be precise. I was hoping that it would be a weekend of a good, white Scandinavian visit, but I have been watching the weather forecasts, and it looks like its going to be far from white. It looks like its going to be very wet (must make sure waterproofs are packed).

But firstly, on the day I head off to start the journey, I started my day by heading to a nice coffee shop on the outskirts of the city, Planet Coffee Hull, which is a nice comfortable coffee shop.

From here, I will then be heading to London for an overnight stop in Kings Cross, staying at The Clink261 Hostel, which is just over from St Pancras Kings Cross Train station. It will be a short visit, but I hear good things about this hostel. I will bring a separate post on my Review of Clink261 Hostel in a separate post concluding my stay.

Now again, I’m amazed at the what it has cost me to travel to London. I live in the north of England, in Hull, and trying to keep to a very small budget, I used MegaTrain again to travel. I get a bus from Hull Interchange, which then takes me as far as East Midlands Parkway, to which we then transfer to a train direct to London St Pancras Train station, and all it has cost me is £10.50 (0.50p admin fee) return. BARGAIN.

Anyway, moving on. After my overnight stop in London, I’ll then head to Luton airport to catch my flight to Copenhagen. Again, on a small budget, booking through RyanAir.com, I paid only £26.80 return flight. If you missed it, I wrote about it and Copenhagen in more detail on my previous post ‘The Next Adventure‘.

The plan.

I have booked a FREE walking tour in Copenhagen for Saturday, and a FREE walking tour in Malmo on Sunday. These will give me a great insight into the local information and history and culture for both of these cities. Again, I will write about these in separate posts once I have done them. But I am looking forward to them, even if it will be in the rain ha.

Let the adventure continue……………
