so luckily, the one day we had turned out to be sufficient. The canal tour took us to the main attractions such as the Little Mermaid. Nor really sure of the significance of this 'monument', but it was exactly as that- a little mermaid on some rocks. I suppose we were spoiled by the beauty of Stockholm, because Copenhagen really didn't compare. Nonetheless, we trekked around looking for places of interest, but it is quite difficult because of the language barrier. The Danes speak great English, but only do so once they realize you are tourists. So it makes it quite hard to figure out exactly what we were looking at. Our quick one day stay in Copenhagen came to a [PHOTO_ID_R=copenhagen_063.jpg
relaxing end, as we decided to make our way to the airport with plenty of time to spare! A 750ml cup of beer, some light refreshments, and off we go to Berlin Germany. I'll tell you about the Bratwurst when we get there!
It had been about 4 hours since we were Stockholm and we finally managed to find our hotel in Copenhagen in the pouring rain and wind. Couldn't believe it was the middle of summer and it was about 10 degrees! The hotel was quite comfortable so that's exactly what we needed at that stage. Seeing as we only had a few hours in Copenhagen before we departed for Berlin, we decided that an early morning was in order! 8am. This was at least 4 hours later than we've been used to in Stockholm! Breakfast at the hotel was adequate, Courtney wouldn't let me make cheese and ham sandwiches to keep for lunch, great idea though! Our early start was great, but nothing in Copenhagen opens till 10am, so as we wandered around the city, it seemed still asleep. As the crowds started to gather, the weather also began to cheer up. We made our way through the streets to the main canal terminal for a canal sight-seeing tour of the city. There's not too much to see in Copenhagen,
