Princess Mary's New Home Town
16.12.2006 - 19.12.2006
A quick flight had me in Denmark before long, and a long bus in from the airport had me at my hostel on the outskirts of town. But I was beginning to get used to all this walking an soon the distances seemed to matter less and less. Denmark remined me of home, it had similar shops, a similar atmosphere and of course 'Our' Princess Mary (I've got a postcard to prove it!).
I checked out the Musuem and it had some wonderful collections but I was beginnning to feel a bit of musuem fatigue, so I threw caution to the wind (and a lot a Kroner too!) and spent a wonderful day at Tivoli, one of the oldest gardens in Europe, with rides, restaurants and a pretty little lake to top it off. I spent hours rushing between the rides and exhausting myself in the process. I filled up on junkfood (waffles, hot chocolate and fairyfloss!) and yet still didn't feel sick ! More rides were needed! I highly recommend the ride that is like a tower of terror as you get the best views of Copenhagen from the top before you plummet back down to earth!
I cruised around the harbour heading out to Chrisitania but only getting to see it from the comfort of a boat full of load obnoxious tourists. I wandered around the picturesque Nyhavn and strolled along the longest pedestrian shopping street in the world which seemed to contain more tourist shops than anywhere else in the world.
But that was the end of my three short days and I had to catch a flight to Zurich (via a five hour stopover in Berlin - who on earth knows why?) and thus had to leave the rest of Denmark for another time
