Denmark and copenhagen.
This was the first stop on the way to the arctic. It began with an early morning flight and staying in one of the small hostels close to the city centre which caters for about 150. There is one in the city centre that caters for a 1000, i think that one would be a little crowded.
Lots of churches, historical sites and an old fort to wander around.
Some of the streets definitely have a colourful feel to them. This corner property was covered with flowers (azaleas?). Denmark was recently voted the country with the best quality of living.
Down on the docks the streets are cobbled and lined with schooners and restaurants. The houses painted
various colours to brighten up the dull days.
me looking like an idiot in the botanic gardens. Didn't realize that flowers and plants could be so interesting ;-)
Part of a local city centre park. Copenhagen is surrounded by them. Time to get out the picnic.
