Copenhagen - Second Time Around

Who would've guessed that I'd make it back to Copenhagen? Two years ago, I took off on a Scandinavian adventure with my family, in part to celebrate my 40th birthday. We headed out at the end of October and wrapped up our trip in early November. The days were short and grey but I still fell in love with the Nordic cities we visited. When I was offered the opportunity to return to the city as a guest of IKEA to attend their Democratic Design days I jumped at the chance. Who wouldn't?

A small contingent of editors, photographers, producers and journalists made the trip from Canada. We travelled from Copenhagen to Ålmhult, Sweden where IKEA is headquartered. I'll follow up with more on my trip to IKEA in a later post but for now here are a few scenes from my days in Copenhagen.
