    Copenhagen

    July 4, 2019 in Denmark ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    It has been a rainy start to our cruise but we are happy to just sit back and relax.  We have two days at sea before arriving at St Petersburg, Russia, and there is plenty to do on board this enormous 16 storey ship! It will take us two days to find our way around! There are approximately 4,000 passengers and 1600 crew on board. The logistics of feeding that many people is mind-boggling! Alan is happy because he has located the two ice-cream self-serve bars! Life is good!Read more

    June 15, 2019 in Denmark ⋅ 🌧 17 °C

    Bevor es über die Öresundbrücke nach Schweden ging, mussten wir in Dänemark noch schnell Sand von der dänischen Küste, Wasser aus der Ostsee und Luft vom Meer für die bevorstehende Wikinger-Weihe besorgen.Read more

    Die Teterow Schildbürger haben früher sogar das Licht in Säcken in die Kirche getragen. Also geht das mit der Luft aus Dänemark auch 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

    Last day in Copenhagen, and in Europe

    October 21, 2019 in Denmark ⋅ ☁️ 11 °C

    Today was good, but not quite as we had planned. First we went for breakfast at a Hartley recommended place - called Sonny, like our Sonny! - and it was very good. Excellent coffee, fresh seedy bread, tasty cheese, soft boiled egg! And a great juice - green colour with apple, ginger, tumeric and something whose name I didn’t know ...anyway, it was tangy and delicious. So that was a good start, and then we set off to go to the National Museum with the Viking exhibition. We had seen it was open every day, but hadn’t read the next line which said from October to May open Tuesday to Sunday...so again we missed the Vikings!! But we had heard quite a lot in Norway, so we cut our losses and headed for the royal palaces.

    First to the Rosenborg palace, which houses the thrones, crown jewels, and exhibits the rooms of the palace as lived in by Christian IV (I think, there are many Christians and Frederiks)...and that was excellent. Spent quite a while there, and then moved on to the Marienborg which is where the residence of the current royals is, but there are several palaces round in an octagon, and one is on show. Also excellent, furniture as lived in by Christian IX who was the “father-in-law of Europe” as most of his children married royalty - one being Alexandra who married Edward VII of Great Britain.

    So that took us through to about 3 o’clock when we had a coffee break, and I have a slight complaint. We cannot find what we call Danish pastries. It is like looking for what we call Sicilian olives in Sicily. They don’t exist. I just love the pastries with vanilla cream inside, with fruit, almond croissants, pain au raisins etc, and thought this would be the home of them, and the very best. We find them in France, Italy, Spain, Sydney...but here every bakery just has croissants, and nice bread, and cake things rather like muffins, and cinnamon rolls. Anyway, our hunt was fruitless. We did finally see some more like what we were looking for when later we came to the markets where there was a French chain - Brioche d’Orée - but in France we would never go there as there are so many better ones.

    As usual we took umbrellas as it threatened to rain, but never actually did! It does rain at night, as it was wet each morning. Anyway again lucky as it is miserable to walk squelching along and getting dripping, and we did a fair bit of walking. These palaces, and the museum are quite a ways apart.

    We had planned to go to a restaurant for dinner that we had seen. Amr had spied the bouillabaisse and it looked good...but when wandering later, after drifting into yet more furniture stores and sitting on their chairs and sofas, we found the market. Lovely market, you can buy things to take home and cook, and you can eat and drink at some stalls, and we found a tapas bar which just beckoned us. So we ate there instead. It had all our favourite food, and it all felt right, and it was so good just to order what you wanted as you ate it...I think we have had so many meals that it makes you lose your appetite. Anyway, this was just lovely, and we got back quite early and have packed up as much as possible and will set off tomorrow morning. First the flight to London, then connecting to the air New Zealand flight to Los Angeles. This is the thing - will we and the bags make the connection successfully as they are non related tickets! Hopefully all will work out. We stay and draw breath at LAX hotel for 2 nights before taking the flight to Sydney.

    Danish pastries are actually Austrian. (Cf Panama hats.) In Denmark you have to ask for Wienerbrød.

    Tankstop in Kopenhagen

    February 23, 2019 in Denmark ⋅ ⛅ 1 °C

    Nachdem wir gut mit der Fähre von Fynshav nach Bojden gekommen sind liegt nun Fünen und auch Seeland hinter uns. Beim Tankstop dürften wir feststellen, dass die für einen Syncro wirklich flotte Fahrweise auf der Autobahn mit der ganz ordentlichen Beladung ein echtes Loch in den Tank reißt.... 😉

    Nun sind wir schon in Schweden... die nette Dame am Zoll wollte doch tatsächlich unsere Ausweise sehen... nachdem wir ihr erklärt haben das der BSC nix mit Gunball o.ä. zutun hat dürften wir auch weiterfahren....

    Exploring Copenhagen

    October 20, 2019 in Denmark ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    Today is Sunday. Much quieter than Saturday, though when we went out for coffee this morning there was quite a lot of evidence of post Saturday night debris. This was in contrast to Norway (but we didn’t inspect on Sunday morning is Oslo) but there was litter, broken glass and vomit...not the perfect behaviour of such people so conscious of planet, sustainability and happiness!!

    We have had a good day, and quite busy. First we walked along the water to the Opera House. A huge and very fine building right on the water. Quite a long walk, obviously you can drive there as there was parking, and I think you can get a ferry. Then Amr navigated us to the Danish Design Museum which was a highlight for him. It was fun, and we saw many chairs by famous designers - Hans Wegner and Arne Jacobsen to name 2 I remember and liked. Besides chairs there was a lot of Bauhaus stuff (which we had seen a lot of in Germany). Anyway, we enjoyed that and then we went to see some nearby churches - a Russian orthodox with very Russian domes (and where I had to put my scarf over my head), and the Marble Church, very important looking and rather beautiful which we found is Church of Denmark - the national religion, evangelical Lutheran.

    Stopped for a shared sandwich and coffee then walked to the little mermaid just because it is a thing to see here. Many people taking photos etc, and busloads of Asians, but it was a very nice walk through parks. We have sorted out the royal residence situation! Found another Slot - the Amelienborg (I think that’s right) which is an octagonal ring of palaces where all the royals live in various buildings. We even happened to be there when they were changing the guard, all marching round in busbies (?sp) like at Buckingham Palace. The one yesterday - Christiansborg -I think is used as the parliament (that’s what the informative man at the Amelienborg said) and there is yet another castle - the Rosenborg which has Crown Jewels, thrones etc) and we going to look at those 2 tomorrow. We found this on our way to have a walk in the botanical gardens which was beautiful with autumn colours.

    On our way back, we stopped for a drink outside by a heater, watching the passing parade, then Amr dragged me into another department store but this one was really fun. It was purely a Danish design store - and we had such fun in the 2 floors of furniture- these beautiful chairs that we had seen in the museum we could now sit on and try - they were so comfortable and attractive (mostly) and it was actually more fun than the museum. They shut at 6 so we went back to the hotel (which has these style of chairs in the foyer) before setting out again for dinner. Found a perfect place where I had soup and mussels, and Amr had salad and herring. All happy.

    Erste Eindrücke Kopenhagens

    September 21, 2020 in Denmark ⋅ ☁️ 15 °C

    Nach der Ankunft am Hotel (gegen 17 Uhr) sind wir so ziemlich direkt mit der U-Bahn Richtung Innenstadt Kopenhagens gestartet. Wir waren lecker essen und konnten erste Eindrücke einer extrem modernen und wirklich schönen Stadt sammeln. Da wir echt kaputt sind, werden wir gleich ins Bett fallen 😴 Morgen gibt's weitere Eindrücke!Read more

    Rundumschlag einer wunderschönen Stadt

    September 22, 2020 in Denmark ⋅ ☁️ 18 °C

    Heute haben wir quasi einen Rundumschlag Kopenhagens gemacht und uns sehr viele schöne Ecken der Stadt angeschaut. Kirchen, Burgen, Schlösser, Häfen, Schiffe - von allem etwas dabei! Sogar in die Freistadt Christiania - eine geduldete autonome Kommune mitten im Zentrum - hat es uns verschlagen. Zum Mittag gab es Selbstgemachtes auf dem Food-Market. Gestärkt sind wir dann aufgebrochen zur Stroget, der bei ihrer Eröffnung längsten Fußgängerzone Europas. Sophie wurde in Form von Pullis und Hosen fündig, ich knipste währenddessen noch ein paar Bilder. Zum Abschluss streiften wir noch den Nyhavn (neuer Hafen) - die bunte Häuserreihe ziert ja beinahe jede zweite Postkarte Kopenhagens, sodass das fast schon Pflicht war. Zurück ging es von dort mit der U-Bahn Richtung Hotel. Soeben sind wir angekommen und unsere Beine durchaus mitgenommen - meine Uhr zeigt 18,2 gelaufene Kilometer an. Jetzt ruhen wir uns kurz aus und werden den Abend am nahegelegenen Strand ausklingen lassen, ehe es morgen (für mich) das erste Mal nach Schweden (Malmö) geht ☺️Read more

    Schönes Malmö

    September 23, 2020 in Denmark ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Auch der Rest Malmös hat uns echt gefallen. Ein wunderschöner Schlosspark, der außergewöhnliche Mix aus historischen und modernen Gebäuden, das höchste Gebäude Skandinaviens und dritthöchste Wohnhaus Europas (Turning Torso) - alles Dinge, die uns positiv in Erinnerung bleiben werden. Wir sind nun am Hotel angekommen und werden zum Abendessen nochmal mit der U-Bahn nach Kopenhagen reinfahren. Dieses wurde heute im Laufe des Tages von der Bundesrepublik als Risikogebiet eingestuft. Eigentlich wollten wir morgen noch an die Ostsee. Mal schauen, ob das funktioniert - die Regellandschaft rund um Corona ist doch echt komplex und nicht gerade transparent 🤔Read more
