Saturday, 26th July

Planning has played a key part of our trip and being able to see lots of things can only be posssible with planning. Since we had a lot to see today, we made a list of things to see based on the reviews in Trip Advisor. The items on the list were:

Copenhagen City Hall (Also called the Radhus)

Radhuspladsen (The market plaza at the front of the City Hall building)

Nyhavn (strip of cafes and restaurants on the canal front)

Kongens Nytorv (The King’s Square – also a central market place of the old city, but which is unfortunately under major construction work at the moment)

The Little Mermaid statue (Probably the most famous of all Danish landmarks, based on the story by Hans Christian Andersen, popularised by Walt Disney)

There are also obviously times that don’t go to plan and those also bring about some of the best experiences as well. For example, that time when it poured rain and we were forced to take shelter at Princess Mary’s house. 🙂

The first picture is the church near her house (Frederiks Church), the second her courtyard. The next two pictures are where she actually lives and her tinny if she should ever decided to throw a line in the harbour.

Here are some other great sights of Copenhagen such as the Tivoli Gardens, Hans Christian Andersen Statue and busy Saturday mornings on a beautiful summer day.

After a few beers in the sun and some fish and chips, we decided to call it a day and headed back to were we are staying. Then we had a small nap before having dinner. I know, I know, it’s a hard life. 🙂

Oh, and I almost forgot! For you Lozz – Danish danishes. 😀
