Meaningful Meanders: the Tour - Leg 3
Copenhagen, Denmark / Malmö, Sweden
I traveled to Copenhagen to discover its sustainable concepts on environment, economy and social responsibility, and its equity on genders, races and transportation.
I didn’t have any local friend there like I have in other countries I visited. That leads me to use Airbnb Experiences to meet locals and ask them questions about this country.
My sister joined my Scandinavian adventure and we got to participate in three Airbnb Experiences. Our local guides took us to many cool spots around the city and we learned so much about the things we saw and places we stood.
I thought I can get away from the heat since it’s Northern Europe, however, Copenhagen experienced a major drought this summer, so as most countries in Europe.
In our Airbnb Experiences, we visited the fascinating neighborhood of Nørrebro, its diverse population inspired artists and architects to build the iconic Superkilen Park! There are different artifacts from all over the globe representing over 60 nationalities that live in this neighborhood. We found a juice bar sign from Taiwan that we were super excited about.
We had the opportunity to visit a Danish family and learned about their housing design and regulations that typical tourists won’t experience!
We joined a bike tour that dedicated to explore Copenhagen’s urban design and street art. Our local guide, who is an urban planner, photographer and a French, took us to many secret artsy spots and explained the historical significance and future plans.
As a foodie and environmental conscious world citizen, I really enjoyed our experience with Heather through Airbnb Experience that we had a 3 hour conversation about food and its connection between human, economy and nature, and also the New Nordic Food Movement!
Only a bridge away, we visited a Swedish town named Malmö. My sister and I got to do some sibling bonding through shopping, picture taking and eating those amazing Swedish meatballs!
