When I explain to people that I'm traveling alone, I get a pretty standard response each time. Something along the lines of "Aren't you afraid?", "Won't you be lonely?", or "That's brave."
If bravery is being afraid and doing it anyway, then yeah, I feel pretty brave. Every day of this trip I've been doing things that make me uncomfortable or scare me. Sometimes I have to take a moment to work up the courage to take the next step. Other times it feels like I blinked and I've made it on the right train, or to my accommodations, and I just think - "Wow, I'm here. That wasn't as hard as I thought."
That being said - Copenhagen is a great city to travel alone. For one, it's completely safe and easy to get around, whether your method of transit is metro, bike, or by foot. It's also clean, friendly, and has a plethora of activities to do alone.
Last summer, I moved into a two bedroom apartment and had some extra space and time. I decided to become a part of the Couchsurfing community, and hosted a few people from around the world. It was a great way to break up a pretty monotonous, lonely fall, and while I was at it I built up a little "cred" in the Couchsurfing community. When I was coming into Copenhagen, I put out feelers for a Couchsurfing host and ended up staying with a fabulous Danish girl around my age who was game to explore her city with me. It really takes the singe out of solo travel when you have a sightseeing buddy.
I knocked a few museums and parks off my to-do list while she was at work, and together we explored Copenhagen street food at Paper Island, an art museum created by the founder of Carlsberg beer, and the general breathtaking design of pretty much everything in the city. The Danes don't appear to build anything if it can't be beautiful. I have a feeling there will be places I go to on this trip that I will never see again in my life. Copenhagen will not be one of them - I will most certainly be back to further explore the city, its smørrebrød, and hygge life.
