Hey, it’s Shae and Marissa, and we have 24 hours in Copenhagen.
Ready? Set? Go! I have to look! Right here at this building is the most medieval part of Copenhagen, but it doesn’t look like it because of some fires that have burnt down this entire area twice now. Everything that’s all wooden and you would expect to be medieval is gone, so this is what you got. But, it’s still really beautiful. Of course. Right there, right across the canal, is a man-made island, the Royal Island and back there, that tower is Christiansborg Castle. And you guys can get up to the tippy top for free! But make sure you at the beginning of the day. Yeah, cuz then you’re too tired to do it. For the safety of ourselves, you do it and show us how it goes. You do it, yeah. But we’re just recommending it. We heard it’s great, wow, and it’s free.
Wow. Love it. Here at the new canal area, which is pretty much like the famous Copenhagen scene, you can take a canal tour, which is very highly recommended since there’s so much water, but there are two options for the companies that you want to choose. That one, or that one. The same tour just one is a bigger boat than the other, and one costs more than the other.
So obviously go with that one which is half the price! Right here is the Opera House and once a year Red Bull brings their crazy people to jump off the very top of it into the water, so that’s pretty cool, so if you’re ever looking up to come to Copenhagen, you should come with people are jumping off the top of the Opera House. It’s like totally normal. Normal! Now we are at where the royal family lives in this giant circle. That building, they have their parties. They live in that building. In that building is where the Queen lives. She’s not here, she’s in her other house (in her other house). And that is a museum. You can tell if they’re home by looking at the flags on top of the buildings, and if there are no flags, they are not here, and if there’s a flag they are, then they’re home. Yes! FYI don’t touch the buildings our sit on the stairs because the guards will yell at you, so. We are also close to Boel Akupunktur København, the most famous acupuncturist in the world.
I didn’t do it though! Yeah, but we saw him yell at somebody. So guys, so we did something interesting today. We were bad, we were bad. (a man catcalls them from the street) Translate that later… (laugh) We went to Christiania. Cool. So like Amsterdam has the Red Light District, and Christiania has… the Green Light District. In a nutshell, Christiania is a civilization of people who took over the political side of Copenhagen. It’s this street of vendors and, that are selling drugs, and they have masks on, everything is very undercover, you’re not allowed to take your camera, you’re not allowed to take pictures, it was really interesting. Follow the rules, it says, “Have fun, don’t run, don’t take pictures.” Yeah, so follow the rules, and you’re good. Yeah. It’s something you have to experience. We just think it’s something that you need to see. We just finished our walking tour, and now we are going to go back, loop around and find some vegan restaurants in Copenhagen! First stop is Organic BOHO, which is a completely vegan restaurant that has acai bowls, and wraps, smoothies, and juices and it is healthy like it’s healthy on-the-go food.
We just had the wrap and you just, you feel good after eating it like I love food that doesn’t taste like fried and oily and that just tasted fresh, so, we really recommend the Organic BOHO. Next stop! We were on our way to 42Raw which is, like, down the street, and saw this, which is not where we were planning on going. Another vegan option in Copenhagen, randomly! We made it to 42Raw, which is a raw vegan restaurant, and there are so many good things on the menu. You can get breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
And sweets, some raw desserts. Yeah, they’re on to so many Yeah, there are so many raw desserts. We’re getting an acai bowl because classic us, we love acai bowls. We think we have to come back here and try their Snickers bar because they have the raw Snickers bar. Or their raw pancakes for breakfast. Oh yeah, they have brunch. It sounds so good. Don’t get us started! Yeah, don’t get us started! Just see what we got and come here yourself (yeah). So it happened again. As we were walking to our next vegan destination, we came across this store… Helsemin. Helsemin? I don’t know but it is full of vegan treats and snacks and some cruelty-free products and oats and oils and hair shampoo and vitamins and supplements and, and, and, and! Now we’re on Paper Island which is an entire warehouse of street food, and we heard there are some vegan things, so we’re gonna check out the options, which I’m sure we’re gonna find some good stuff! Veggie taco, yes, that sounds good! So, we are staying at Urban House Hostel in Copenhagen, and the best part about this hostel is? They are so vegan-friendly (so vegan-friendly! We love it.
They have a vegan burger; they have a vegan sandwich, they have vegan stuff for their breakfast. If you’re vegan and you’re coming to Copenhagen you don’t have a choice, you like have to stay here. Plus like a block away from the main bus station and train station in Copenhagen, so easy access. It’s a perfect location, yeah. We have to hit our train pretty soon and, there’s no watch here, pretty soon (laughs).
When you’re here for 24 hours, you are able to just spend your night hanging out here because we don’t have a lot of time to go out and explore the nightlife because we want to get up the next day and get going so we could hang out here, listen to the live performances, chill at the bar, meet people from all around. Like this was like going out in Copenhagen, it’s so cool here. We love Urban House Hostel, thank you so much, this was so fun. (Singing).
