When I decided that I would be attending the TBEX Conference in Stockholm, I knew I had to take a couple of days and make the trek down to Copenhagen. I had never been to Denmark before, and at the time, I didn’t know when I’d have the chance to come back, so it seemed like a now-or-never kind of thing. Or, maybe that’s just what I was telling myself to justify more travel.
Regardless, I knew Copenhagen had to be part of the itinerary.
On top of knowing I just had to visit Copenhagen, in my mind, there was only one way to get there: by train. I mean, why take a short 1h40min flight when you can take a five-hour train ride through the Swedish countryside?!
It might not have made sense to most, I mean, flying would have given us more hours to enjoy Copenhagen, but after months of travel and countless flights (most of which were delayed) it was so refreshing to board the train in Stockholm, sit back, relax and wind our way to Copenhagen.
We loved it.
The day of our trip, the sun was shining and the Swedish countryside was aglow. The brilliant blue sky and the lush green scenery kept us intrigued and inspired as we made our way west. Along the way, we’d drive past lakes or small towns, each looking absolutely idyllic; exactly what you hoped the Swedish countryside would look like.
Like I said, we loved it.
For both Dave and, I the five-hour trip flew by. Even when my KOBO decided to reset itself mid-way through our journey (and erase the book I was just two chapters away from finishing), I wasn’t as disappointed as I would have been during a flight, only because there was so much to look at and enjoy right outside of our window.
Taking the train from Stockholm to Copenhagen provided the perfect snapshot into Southern Sweden; it provided a calm oasis and a reprieve from the chaos that can sometimes accompany travel.
It was the perfect way to spend a mid-July day, and I can’t imagine a more beautiful way to get from Stockholm to Copenhagen.
