    We are in Denmark

    June 6, 2019 in Denmark ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    Today, we booked a tour with SPB. Our guide Paul was just outside the ship as promised. The group was small, 20. It is a gorgeous day. Our first stop is in the harbour of The Little Mermaid. Paul gives us the details of the story but it ends badly.
    Our next stop is the canal. This we where we saw the Queens yacht and the special meeting spot for the family to to board the yacht. However the most interesting story here was the army jeeps decorated with vines, flowers and balloons. It is high school grad! The tradition is for the grads who have gone to school together ride to each other’s homes, drinking and partying and finally ending up in the town square to dance around the monument. Sadly this is a picture I missed!
    We next stopped at the Royal Family’s home. It is nice, maybe a little understated but then we weren’t invited inside. After that we put on blue booties and walked through another Royal residence; Christiansborg Palace and is where state dinners and meetings are attended. Magnificent, every room is decorated different but so elegant. The dining room table holds 52 people; imagine setting that table! The history of the Danish royals are depicted everywhere; tapestries, pictures, chandeliers and paintings.

    Free time in Copenhagen

    June 6, 2019 in Denmark ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    Left to our own devices for a while, we start by trying to locate a washroom that does not charge money to pee. It’s easy. We locate nearby a nice washroom in the heart of the city, that a homeless person would be pleased to make his or her permanent address. This speaks well of the Dutch.

    Walking through narrow cobblestone street for the next half hour, we hope to get the perfect picture to represent Copenhagen. Might have to buy a postcard.

    Copenhagen Reunion

    June 17, 2019 in Denmark ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    The last few day I spent in Copenhagen with the people I got to know and lived with in Mexico. It was the first time after 6 months that we saw each other and it seemed like we never separated. I had the greatest time with those generous people and I even decided to stay longer than planned. The city is super nice and pretty but also really expensive. I spent a lot of money but in the end it was 100% worth it. The trip gave me such a high value. In the end it was more about the people than the city of course but I can tell for sure now that the connection to my friends I met during my study abroad is a really special one that I do not want to miss anymore.Read more

    Rainy day in Copenhagen!

    July 16, 2017 in Denmark ⋅ 🌧 16 °C

    Woke up to rain this morning! Spent the morning on the sightseeing bus then coffee and lunch. The Danish are the 3rd highest coffee drinkers in the world just behind Sweden and Finland and they make fantastic coffee! The Danes average 4 cups a day. Just another little bit of info- there are 5 bikes for every 4 people- they ride everywhere with specials wide bike lanes. Still raining After lunch So Betty and I spent a few hours wandering through the national museum.Read more

    Saturday in Copenhagen

    October 19, 2019 in Denmark ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    We have left Norway. Woke this morning to a grey drizzly morning, and were very thankful for the lovely rain-free day we had yesterday exploring Oslo. So after breakfast and leisurely packing up we went to the airport, as no point hanging round, and getting wet. Oslo airport very organised and not to large. We did have one drama though - Amr, very unusually, made a crazy mistake....we were at the self-serve bag drop, had had boarding passes and bag tags printed, and Amr put his bag up before he tagged it, then scanned the tag (which was still in his hand) and off went the bag away on the belt before he could catch it!! General panic (by us) but SAS are very efficient, and assured him that they would catch it and tag it before it got any further....but it was a moment of horror, and we didn’t feel totally secure until it came out, actually one of the first! at Copenhagen.

    So all was well, and it was SO easy to get into the city from the airport - the metro goes right to the airport and took us to right near our hotel. We knew which stop, and it is quite in the centre with many shops, restaurants and hotels nearby. So easy, and even cheap by Norwegian standards! About equivalent to $15 for the 2 of us. The train to Oslo airport, which was very handy and easy also, was about 4 times the price, and even had seniors from 67, so Amr just missed out!!

    Our hotel is great. It is another of these Scandinavian modern minimalist hotels. Small spotless rooms, everything works, everything fits, no nonsense! If there are 2 people there is a second doona, pillow and set of towels in a drawer under the bed (you always get a doona each here it seems). And amazingly great wifi in all the hotels, and even on the boat.

    So, once we had dumped the bags we went out to get a feel of the city. It is flat...no mountains in Denmark. Also, just remembered, we saw what I think was “the Bridge” as we flew in! We had left the clouds over Oslo, and it was even sunny here, though has descended into rain this evening. Reasonable forecast for tomorrow though. We can’t help noticing all the absolutely beautiful young Scandinavian girls...they all have perfect skin, and are remarkably gorgeous - maybe from lack of sun!

    We walked around, it was Saturday afternoon, and a clear day, so everyone was out and about, walking in the cobbled pedestrian streets. Saw the royal palace (slot, which I realise is a Schloss)..but am not sure if this is the royal residence, or just a show place, as there were no visible guards like Buckingham Palace, but maybe the Danes are more casual!! Will find out more...Amr plans to find the Danish design museum tomorrow, and also we found another Viking museum here which should be good! So if it gets rainy there is plenty of inside stuff to do. Had dinner at a restaurant along a canal were there are many eateries. It was lovely...I actually had a very nice steak, and Amr had Danish meatballs. Cold by then. We had come south, and when we arrived felt too hot in thick jackets, but it certainly cooled off. Not much photo taking this afternoon.

    Copenhagen

    November 10, 2016 in Denmark ⋅ ⛅ 1 °C

    It's hard to believe that we made it to our final destination! Although Denmark wasn't originally on our list of countries to visit we had to make a pit stop since we found cheap tickets on Norwegian Airlines.

    We're glad we got a quick glimpse of this city as we surprisingly liked it for not knowing what to expect. Yes, it was freezing and yes, it got dark by 4:30pm but we made the most of our two days there. We were surprised by a few things: almost everyone rides a bicycle even when it's 30 degrees out, everyone's English is so good you wouldn't even know it was their second language, and the people seem happy despite income tax rates as high as 68%. The city was expensive like most Scandinavian countries, but pristine and safe as well.

    We also got to celebrate Mitch's birthday by experiencing a 5 course Danish meal at a trendy restaurant.

    Kurztripp nach Kopenhagen

    August 2, 2019 in Denmark ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Um bei der Hochzeit von Lars und Sofie dabei sein zu können, sind wir in Riga ins Flugzeug gestiegen.

    Kopenhagen selbst haben wir dann mit dem Kayak besichtigt, unsere Füße von Fischen beknabbern lassen und die beste Pizza in KBH bei Massimo verspeist.Read more

    Tivoli

    October 30, 2019 in Denmark ⋅ ⛅ 3 °C

    Das Hauptziel von dieser Stadt war der Vergnügungspark Tivoli. Seit langer Zeit ist das 80m hohe Kettenkarussell The Star Flyer auf meiner Wunschliste.... Also nix wie hin. Und zur Halloweenzeit umso toller beleuchtet. Herrlich.Read more

    Kopenhaageni südalinn

    July 20, 2019 in Denmark ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    Arhitektuuri poolest on kesklinn hästi lahe, palju vanu, võimsaid, värvilisi hooneid ning ilusad kanalid ja pargid. Amsterdamiga võrreldes märkimisväärselt puhtam, rahulikum ja tsiviliseeritum - polnud koguaeg tunne, et nüüd saab surma. Ka siin olid kõikjal rattateed ja ratta valgusfoorid, et sõit oleks lihtne ja ohutu. Meile mõlemale meeldis Kopenhaagen rohkem, vaatamata sellele, et siin torkas silma rohkem kodutuid ja joobes inimesi. Tundub, et taanlased on suuremad alkoholi sõbrad, aga samas Amsterdamis on muud moodused joovastumiseks, seega kes teab. Üllatav on, et nii Kopenhaagenis kui Amsterdamis on keset linna lihtsalt kanalid ilma käsipuude ja piireteta, samas ei kujutaks ette kui emajõe ääres poleks piiret. Siin inimesed tihti istuvad kanali äärel ja räägivad juttu või joovad veini ja keegi ei karda sisse kukkumist. Nägime kanalitel ka palju renditud elektrimootoriga paate kus seltskonnad ringi sõitsid ja kaarte mängisid.Read more
