Marco and I got married in Denmark on the 9th of January 2015. Besides the expected wedding excitement, I was also thrilled to be visiting Scandinavia at long last, even if it was only for a long weekend in the middle of winter. I had always dreamed of travelling far north, beyond the German border and into the beautiful Nordic countries.
I feel compelled to write about motivations for travel and “obligatory sightseeing” after coming across several scathing TripAdvisor reviews of the statue of Den Lille Havfrue (The Little Mermaid) in Copenhagen. The majority of reviews expressed disappointment, and some even anger, at their expectations not being met by such a “famous” sight.
