Jun 24, 2019 - Copenhagen, Denmark to Oslo, Norway

Monday - Weather is beautiful again. Apparently this is very unusual but we are loving it! Since we're not leaving for Norway until later this afternoon, we took a local bus out to a fishing village on the coast. It is always fun to watch the countryside change from busy city to suburbs to country-side to coast. We walked around the picturesque village taking pictures and enjoying the peace and quiet. We're having a big dinner tonight so we wanted to eat a light lunch. We found the perfect place - the local ice cream parlor. Our Swedish...

Jun 23, 2019 - Copenhagen, Denmark Day 3

Another beautiful day!!! We walked to an area of Copenhagen called Christiania. I am going to copy a description of this area from a description by Steve Ricks in his tour guide book of Copenhagen. It is very difficult to describe, but I may have some comments at the end: In 1971, the original 700 Chritianians established squatters' rights in an abandoned military barracks just a 10-minute walk from the Danish Parliament building. Two generations later, this "free city" still stands--an ultra-human mishmash of idealists, hippies, potheads,...

Jun 21, 2019 - Copenhagen, Denmark

Ah, our second day. The weather is beautiful again, in the 60's and the sun is shining. We start our day at the breakfast buffet provided by the Phoenix Hotel. Oh I forgot to tell you, we left Phoenix and arrived in Phoenix! Eggs, bacon, sausages, potatoes, cereals, fruit, yogurt, wonderful looking homemade breads, croissants, pastries!!! We meet in the lobby at 8:30 am. We introduced ourselves to all of our new travelling companions; 15 total. Looks like it will be a good group. We get on a bus and take a tour of the city. The photos will...

Jun 20, 2019 - Phoenix to London to Copenhagen

Doug and Beverly are off on another adventure in Western Europe. When we traveled the countries around the Baltic Sea a few years ago, we felt rushed as we saw 7 countries in 14 days. What a rookie mistake! So we are back to do it right. Just 4 countries in 24 days. So we arrived in Copenhagen, Denmark on Thursday June 20, 2019 at about 4:30 pm. We got a brief orientation of old city Copenhagen by our trip leader Mona. The weather is great, in the 60's; and there are lots of blondes (except for the immigrants of course). Ah, good to be back...

Apr 30, 2019 - Explore Copenhagen

David purchased “Copenhagen Card” on line and this gives access to public transport, as well as free entry to many attractions - we need to be here 6 months to see them all! The Bus stops outside our Hotel and only a 6 minute ride to inner City. For us first timers it isn’t easy to negotiate crossing busy roads - apart from cars driving on opposite side of road, there are also crowded bike lanes on both sides of the road, and we continually mistake them for footpaths and hear bicycle bell warnings! We also trip over the one brick height...

70 Canals 2019

Apr 29, 2019 - Denmark - here we come.

Waiter at Hotel in Windsor knows we like the window table. Hotel is right on the banks of Thames. So sorry to be leaving here. Went for final walk around the village. Staff had given us a gift box of local Fudge for our Anniversary, so had some while we waited for plane. We sat next to a lady on our flight - a Swedish university lecturer. She was so helpful telling us what to do and see in Copenhagen. We’re in Denmark - now at our Hotel. It is situated in an area that has only sprung up in the last 5 years. There are many 5 or 6 story unit...

Mar 9, 2019 - Copenhagen: March 9-11

This was kind of a crazy trip. Over winter break when my friend group was hanging out at Thiemel’s house, a bunch of us started talking about this semester. Four of us were studying abroad and four people had the same spring break! So, naturally, we all decided to go to Copenhagen!!! My flight was a little late but I got into the city and met my friends at this little Danish restaurant. There were a group of older guys eating and eventually dancing and I loved it. We walked back to the Airbnb which was in the heart of the city. On the...

Sep 27, 2018 - Design the joint!

A much more pleasant day is ahead of us, with only the wind to contend with. So we decided to try out the Donkey Republic bike rental scheme. This is a similar one to the O-Bike scheme that Melbourne just banned. But unlike O-Bikes, which allow riders to drop their rented bikes off anywhere they wish, thereby resulting in their bikes being dumped all over the place, Donkey Republic has found the perfect compromise. There are specified pick-up/drop-off areas all over the city (with one conveniently near our apartment), always where other...

Sep 26, 2018 - Louisiana on my mind

Today we’re heading out to the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art. Despite the name, this gallery has nothing to do with the state of Louisiana; rather it was named after the three wives of the first owner of the property, all of whom were called Louise! It is one of the 1000 Places to See Before You Die and is the 85th most visited art museum in the world. So although it is located quite a long way out of the city, it certainly sounded like it would be worth a visit. The museum is located at Humlebaek, by the northern shores of the Øresund...

Sep 25, 2018 - Happy birthday Jane!

Once again, we find ourselves OS on Jane’s birthday! She was inundated with birthday wishes from friends and family, much to her delight. We had a light breakfast in the apartment (we managed to find porridge that we could make in a cup with just boiled water!) before heading out to the famous Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek on our wonky rental bikes. As mentioned yesterday, we had a couple of pretty basic bikes - one of them had to be replaced before we even started because it had a flat tire. Jane’s bike also had a very wobbly front wheel and...

Sep 24, 2018 - Wonderful, wonderful (rainy) Copenhagen

We had to head out for breakfast this morning as the fridge in our apartment was broken and so it was difficult to buy groceries for breakfast. At first we thought we’d never be able to find a decently priced breakfast, but then we came across a lovely little café, Zaggi’s Coffee, whose claim to fame is that it sells coffee, tea and snacks for just 15 DKK (about A$3) each, which is an absolute steal for Copenhagen! Most places here charge A$5-8 for a cuppa, which is a bit eye-watering. Our stomachs thus appeased, we continued down...

Sep 23, 2018 - Copenhagen Hygge

We woke early to get to Gatwick for our flight to Copenhagen. The old airport is twice as far away from the city as Heathrow, so involves a bit more travel time. Fortunately the Gatwick Express goes regularly and gets you there quickly. The airport was extremely busy - it’s the main hub for cheap European airlines - but is fortunately quite small and quite navigable. We were flying Norwegian, which has won best budget airline in Europe several times. And indeed the flight was very comfortable, with roomy seats, free wifi and good...
