    Sooooo many steps!!

    July 17, 2017 in Denmark

    So this morning we walked the bell tower/spire of the beautiful Lutheran 'The Church of our Saviour'. There were 400 yes that's 400 and just to reiterate that- 400 steps up to the top and then 400 coming down! Views from the top worth it as you see all over Copenhagen, including Sweden in the distance - connected by a bridge. The spire at the top is black and gold. When we finished the church was open and the organist was practising on the pipe organ- magnificent. (Even though I could hardly walk at that stage!)Read more

    Copenhagen

    May 26, 2017 in Denmark

    Renting bikes from the hotel was a perfect way to maximize our time in Cooenhagen, especially on a holiday with less traffic. Christiania (the alternative living community) with a path along the water, the opera house, Rosenborg Castle, lunch on a busy square, Christianborg Palace and the Royal library. At one point we heard the roar of voices near a canal and discovered a massive football celebration with yellow dust being thrown in the air. Police presence was obvious but we quickly left for quieter places. Topped off a delicious Danish dinner with waffle cones. Yum! The weather has been ideal although I hear that rain may be upon us in Belgium. Today we are walking to a weekend antique/flea market before our flight to Amsterdam. I would definitely come back to Scandinavia again to experience more rural areas but we have enjoyed the cities, especially Helsinki.Read more

    Koppenhága - Christiania

    January 13 in Denmark

    Miután megérkeztünk a központi pályaudvarra, igen nagy tervekkel indultunk neki Koppenhágának, és el is jutottunk konkrétan a második sarokig, a Hop On Hop Off standig! 😄 ANNYIRA, de ANNYIRA hideg volt, (pláne így félig betegen), hogy nem vállaltuk a több órás gyaloglást (a fagyhalált kockáztatva 😅).

    Igazodva a buszjárathoz a programtervünk jól a feje tetejére állt, és a "nice to have" Christianiaból első célpont lett. Bevallom, nem bántam, mert én mindenképpen meg szerettem volna nézni. 😊

    Útba esett a Vor Frelsers Kirke evangélikus templom is a csavaros tornyával, így egy fincsi és kötelező dán péksüti után célba is vettük.
    ... és el is vétettük, mert a cukortól megrészegülve egyenesen az ellenkező irányba indultunk el! 😃 Egy kis kurfli után megtaláltuk, de sajnos épp temetés volt, így nem tudtunk bemenni, maga a torony pedig télen nem is látogatható. 😕

    A templom így kiesett, mentünk tovább a hippi negyedbe, ami tulajdonképpen állam az államban, saját szokásrenddel, "törvényekkel". Még a 70-es évek elején egy fiatal pár alapította a közösséget, elfoglalva egy volt katonai területet; aztán egyre többen költöztek be olyanok, akik egy kicsit szabadabb életre vágytak, pl. legalizálták a könnyű drogokat, ami egyébként ugye Dániaban tiltott. Egy ideig próbálták felszámolni őket, de végül maradhattak, csak nem építhetnek új házakat. Mai napig neves művészek járnak ide látogatóba, és kihalásos alapon lehet bekerülni.

    Na, mi ebből az egészből annyit láttunk, hogy minden ház szanaszét van graffitizve, izgis "tereptárgyak" vannak mindenfelé (drótszobor, cipők felaggatva stb.) és átható fűszag terjeng.
    Mint mindenből, ebből is bizniszt csináltak, így a "csendes lakóházak" mögött kis piac található mindenfelé turistabutító kannabiszos kacattal (persze mi is vettünk párat 😉), majd egyre beljebb érve már gond nélkül árulják magát a cuccot is! Nagyon kemény, ilyet még Amszterdamban sem láttam! Halál komolyan, kis standasztalokon ott figyel mindenféle válogatott mariska csinos kis(?) csomagokban. Meg süti, meg valami táblás, "ömlesztett" cucc, amit nem ismerek. Talán hasis. Mint valami biopiac! 😊 Esküszöm már a terjengő szagoktól majdnem betéptem! 😂🤣😃😄
    Hátrébb csomó asztal padokkal, ahol teret engednek az élvezetnek, illetve van pár bár és kajálda is. (Az egyikből konkrétan kizavartak, mert csak inni szerettünk volna 😕)
    Sajnos itt már nem lehetett fényképezni, de az agyamba egyszer és mindenkorra beleégett a kép! 😉

    Christiania UPDATE

    January 13 in Denmark

    ... Barbitól kaptam még 2 képet adalékként az ottani életérzéshez (meg egy közöset Marcival 😉)
    Na igen, a stikában készített képen némileg látszik a "vásári forgatag"; egy kb. 20-30 méter hosszon, színes zászlók alatt kínálják a portékáikat a tagok, mintha ez a világ legtermészetesebb dolga lenne. Aztán lehet, hogy az, csak mi egy fordított világban élünk! 😄

    Paper Island

    July 1, 2017 in Denmark

    A redeveloped area across the harbor from downtown Copenhagen. There is a contemporary art facility there. But for me, the main attraction is the renovated warehouse (At least that's what it seems like). It is now a warren of street food stalls. I had Moroccan braised lamb that was wonderful. It was a hard choice. Another that looked good was pulled duck. Think pulled pork, but using duck. There was even a surf n turf burger. I'll be back there before I leave here at least once. Just a couple photos to give you a sense.Read more

    Copenhagen

    June 25, 2017 in Denmark

    Oh send help.
    We are so tired.
    I folded myself into a ball to sleep on the train which has left my neck in a bit of a neck crink. I went to "sleep" around 2am.
    When I stirred at 5, you could tell Will hadn't sept much either.
    We spent the last hour wishing we could just slip into a coma and not get off the train.

    We got off the train and I got a pasta that after one bite went in the bin 😩
    We just sat there in silence for a long while until we tried finding food again.
    We found a baguette.
    We then started the 3.7km walk to the house with the intentions of stopping several times to waste time.
    When we walked out of the station there was this massive theme park called Trivoli. Stupid William. Why cant he like rides 😩😩😩😩😩😩
    The city was quite empty and clean. It was about 7:30 on a Sunday so maybe everyone sleeps in.
    We walked walked walked and found a park where we decided to waste time where we fed some ducks! 🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆
    I had to walk a bit up to get their attention then slowly threw bread in the direction towards us to make them swim down to our bench.
    We gave them about half a loaf the fat heads. They were loving it.
    I tried to feed the ones doing a crappy job racing for food separately, so they didn't miss out 😍
    We then lay down for a nap. Me on the grass and Will on the bench. I did get some sleep but only very very minimal.
    I WAS SO COLD.
    This is not summer.
    FREEEEEEEZZZZINNNGGGG.
    I was wearing my poof jacket and wind breaker AND borrowed Wills warmer jumper and was still shivering. He thought I looked ridiculous so he took a photo as we carried on our journey looking for our place.
    It was easy enough to find.
    Only problem was we were still an hour early... so we just sat on the side of the road.
    We took turns walking up the street to amuse ourselves.
    The sky started to spit. *mumble groan* lucky for my waterproof jacket lol.
    Our host, Mark, turned up at 11:30 and let us drop our bags off. While he got our room ready.
    We went and bought cereal. Will needed to poop so we went back to the apartment and I had a bowl of coco pops 🤗
    Our room was finally ready 😭😭😭🙌🏼😭😭🙌🏼😭🙌🏼 🎉
    Will knocked out pretty much straight away.
    I did final organizing for our free ferry ride and organised a lift at our next hosts house. We then both slept through until 8pm. Heheh we were tired.
    We have gone out in search of Thai food for Will. 2km later, it wasn't open -.-
    We walked back to a supermarket to get me a drink and he is now getting a kebab.
    This party bus has been going up and down the street absolutely pumping music. They are all in sailor hats and looks like they are having the best time hah they are so drunk. Will reckons locals must hate the buses cause they are just so so so so so loud. Louder than a club and just playing the music into the city. I tried to film them but I missed it :( I'm sure there will be a next time lol.
    We walked home and Will is so upset lol. It's the worst kebab he has ever had apparently hahaha
    I guess that means Coco pops for dinner for him hahah
    We remembered to buy soap at the store. Pretty pleased with ourselves.
    Just trying to organise a basic itinerary for us for the next few days and then probably going back to bed. Keen for the walking tour tomorrow. I booked for 2pm to make sure we make it lol

    Randi must really like me 😍 even though we are going to stay with her in Norway she still wants to see me tomorrow. She is in Denmark for a festival.
    Because I'm FRIGGEN HILARIOUS, I have been sending her photos of me slowly undressing my feet.
    She hates feet and she has stopped replying. I've told her I'm going send her a new photo every 5 minutes of me slowly taking my socks of and zoom in on my toes until she replies
    😂 I should have a comedy show.

    Bed time.
