I have a routine for when I arrive at a new destination, I quickly unpack, take a shower, browse my phone, close the curtains and take a nap. At Radisson Blu Scandinavia Copenhagen, I did the same with exception to the curtains. The city view was amazing!! And I promised myself that Iโ€™d have to discover it later on. There was a lot of promising involved cause the weather was also promising to be extremely cold (one degree Celsius ๐Ÿ˜จ).

The simple, block shape toys with interlocking pieces known as LEGO (meaning play well) are originally from Denmark ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. I got curious, I love LEGOS, especially the movies, but am really bad at putting the pieces together ๐Ÿ˜…. The manufacturers’ flagship store is located in the heart of the city. I got excited. The reviews online were good and knew thatโ€™s where I was going.

My day started with a cup of Starbucks hot chocolate ๐Ÿช. After a few sips, my drink was cold๐Ÿ˜—. Their cold weather is no joke (how do the locals manage) and I had planned to walk to the store๐Ÿ˜…. Google Maps was promising a 25-minute walk (didnโ€™t sound so bad ๐Ÿ˜—).

Copenhagen is a charming beautiful city, from the spectacular skyline to the cute rowed houses, the naked trees, to tiny small lakes/rivers scattered everywhere.

Halfway through, it got really cold, I wonder how the locals manage to ride their bicycles, even my phone was losing its power quite fast๐Ÿ˜ฉ (Does cold weather affect the phone?๐Ÿคจ).

After a few wrongs turn, feeling cold and mini panic attacks from my phone battery, I made it to the Lego store๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ. Every human being who sets foot in there says this line; it was smaller than I had expected ๐Ÿ˜‡.

The store was really cute, the display walls full of toys for all ages. It’s a great place to take kids; they have a build your own LEGO section. I tried building, just to reconfirm how bad I am at it๐Ÿ˜….

I spent quite some time in the store, awing at all the LEGO boxed toys and the built statues. The star wars section was my favorite and the mini Nyvan Copenhagen.

The staff was really friendly and helpful. One suggested I climb onto a huge LEGO bicycle so I can take a picture (I felt like a little kid ๐Ÿ™ˆ). Feeling guilty with all the time I spent there, I bought a boxed toy for my little nephew, so I can teach him how to put it together ๐Ÿ˜œ.
I hope he likes itโ˜บ.

Is anyone a fan of LEGO and knows how to piece them together? We can plan a play date and you can show me ๐Ÿ˜†… Hit me up on the comment section below ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•.

Keep it simple.
