The Great Outdoors (in the centre of Copenhagen)

We are currently in Copenhagen, Denmark. In this city of bike loving, apartment dwelling, contented people are numerous gardens and playgrounds. We are still recovering from jetlag and all the children are on different body clocks – but we have managed to get out and explore one little playground in the central city, called ‘Skydebanehaven’, which has a lovely blend of space, play equipment, trees, flowers and nature touches; including bird houses and bird feeders.

If I wasn’t juggling three children single-handedly (hubby is here on business), and we’d fully recovered from the change in time zones from California, USA, to Copenhagen, in Europe, I would have been out exploring a lot more already – but we have a total of 12 nights here, so I’m pacing myself and hanging out for more fresh air exploring come the weekend and into next week. I thought we had the body clocks sorted yesterday – but then we fell asleep between 6 and 8pm – which would have been great, only Miss 4 awoke at 2am and the other two children at 4am!

Anyway, I’m just grateful for the few moments of outdoor time we are getting, as I get terrible cabin fever if I’m cooped up indoors for long. Thankfully there are some scrumptious eateries on the street we are staying and plenty of open spaces to escape to – even for a quick half hour or so.

I can’t wait to get out some more – and even head out for a run once hubby is home, to explore the great outdoor pockets of Copenhagen at my own pace!
