Copenhagen New Year

This year I was fortunate enough to experience my first European New Years Eve. To my American friends, the best way to describe this is a 4th of July on steroids- but BETTER. To start the night off, we went for a drink at the Hard Rock Cafe in Copenhagen (classic, American place. After all, we have made a tradition of celebrating holidays in Europe in some sort of American fashion). Followed by that, we went to XO Burger's. They had a 3-course prix fixe menu that was nothing short of delicious. To make the deal even sweeter, they had (pretty much) all-you-could-drink wine pairings to go with each course. Our server was wonderful, and I would recommend to anybody visiting Copenhagen.

After dinner, we hit the street. Yes, the street. From about 11:30 until 1 AM, we stood in the middle of the street in Copenhagen and watched one of the best (if not the best) firework show of my life. The city put on a show, but besides that every person standing in the street was lighting off fireworks and shooting them towards the sky. Imagine a metro population of 2 million people, plus all the visitors, in the streets enjoying the evening.

We managed to capture one video of the evening- unfortunately, no pictures! It was one of those evenings spent enjoying each others company, and forgetting about the rest of the world- until, of course, midnight! For the record, pictures and videos wouldn't do it justice. This is something you must experience yourself!

Hope you enjoyed your NYE 2014, and have had a great start to the New Year thus far!
