After 22 hours of flying and 8 hours waiting in airports I arrived to Copenhagen at around 6am with around 4 hours sleep under the belt. A friendly Dane by the name of Thomas helped me to make it to the main train station from where it was supposed to be an easy walk to the CPH Downtown Hostel where I was to stay for the next 3 nights.
