Travel Diary: 72 Hours in Copenhagen

Last week, I spent a couple of days in Copenhagen with my Mum. You might have noticed me mention it a hundred times on social media and I’ve been obsessively posting lots on Instagram.

In true Rachel fashion, I’ve been reading all the guidebooks and looking on all blogs to conjure up the perfect itinerary to explore the city.
