It was a great way to spend Easter, but next time, more clothes !!!!!
Easter had arrived and I had been in London for 6 months, Lucy, slightly less, and we needed to get out. So, we jumped on a plane and went to Copenhagen. We arrived, and found that it was colder than London. We were freezing and we had under packed, so we did the touristy thing. Walk loads to try and warm us up. We saw the Radhus and the old town square, but we weren't moving fast as we kept stopping for coffee, to warm us both up. We moved onto the Stork Fountain, not bad, but not as good as the one which we saw which had naked ladies all over it. Water was coming out of all their orifice !!!!! We saw the little mermaid, not very exciting, but another one to cross off of the Lonely Planet. Night had risen, so we ate the only thing can eat, a smorgasbord !!!! But, we had a Greek one as it was bloody expensive. The next day we went to Christiania, but before we entered the village, we climbed the Vor Freisers Kirke. This has to be one of the most amazing churches I have climbed. We went up the stairs, and it kept on going, right outside and around the steeple, getting tighter and tighter, until you are at the very top of the church. Superb view, but very windy. We went down, and crossed the road and entered Christiania. This is a hippie village. We waked in. Lucy not realising, said, "Look at all that chocolate fudge cake for sale"? Upon closer inspection, it was huge slabs of hash. Naturally, I tried some. It was bloody good. That was the end of that day, except, I had the munchies and we hit the cake shop for Danishes. Third day, we walked and had a look at the castle and climbed a dome church, this was good as we got a good view of the palace. We tried to get to the Carlsberg Brewery, but it was shut, so we finished it off with an evening in the Tivoli. On the final day, as we had seen all of Copenhagen, we hopped onto a train an went on the bridge and in the tunnel and we then arrived in Malmo, Sweden. This is the third largest city in Seden, but it was tiny. Nobody was up and it was 10 in the morning. We had a walk, and people started to appear. We hit the local castle, and then it was time to go back. All the way to the airport, and sadly, back to London.
