Copenhagen

We had the best weather ever for the season. Sunshine and cool breezes marked most of our journey until we got to Copenhagen and then by golly, we had rain. Just enough rain to make things unpleasant but not unbearable. And of course, we were rather weary at that point. One of our first stops was to see the Little Mermaid which of course was on loan to China so they had a live recording of her instead. Interesting concept.

We spent the night on a cruise ship to get from Oslo to Copenhagen. Very nice and the food was great.  After a short bus tour of the city, we enjoyed a tour of the Christiansborg Palace. We also saw the Amalienborg Palace or royal residence.

The following day, we got to tour the Kronborg Castle, the location for Shakespeare's story of Hamlet. Of course we learned there that the story was originally told by others and later made into the famous play.  After our tour there, we had our last meal at Tivoli Garden Amusement Park. It reminded me of Kema and the Boardwalk there.

We went home the next day. Thankfully our guide helped walk us through the Copenhagen Airport. Most confusing and not well marked at all.
