We spent our last Saturday in Copenhagen with Maj and Allan. It was a delightful day and full of food, entertainment and new memories.
We drove in and parked in an all day area which was quite convenient. The drive is about 1.5-2hrs from Sakskøbing, but with the gorgeous scenery it was no bother at all. Maj had a place in mind for brunch and we are both very happy that she took us there. We went to a busy cafe right in the heart of Copenhagen and ordered an amazing meal that we all loved. We were able to people watch, enjoy the atmosphere and will the sun to shine on us, as it was a tad cold earlier that morning.
After brunch we continued exploring the streets, walking through the busiest tourist area of Copenhagen. Kris and I had not been down the street despite our earlier visit. It was interesting to see the people frantically shopping and children screaming because they weren't getting what they wanted. As the day went on, the people increased and the space for walking decreased.
We did stumble across the Lego shop and went back to it later in the day. It was incredible ... and boiling hot!! Lego literally from floor to ceiling. Alas, we did not buy anything because Kris could not decide what he wanted. Probably a good thing, because he would have picked the largest item - that would have been fun lugging it around Europe.
We went back to Nyhavn again and did the 'typical' tourist thing of taking photos here, there and everywhere. The sun was shining, which made for gorgeous photos. We walked down the street where all the cafes were and just enjoyed the sites. Walking back up the other side was very interesting, on the opposite side to where we were, we spotted 4 drunk people who decided to go skinny dipping in the river ( I certainly wouldn't do that in a hurry - it's dirty). It was hilarious to watch, as the jumped in, struggled climbing out and then pushed each other in once again. For us, it was funnier to see that no police stopped them. No one seemed bothered by them doing it for that matter, and the tourists loved it!!
After our experience at Nyhavn we decided to head to Christiania. Christiania is a small 'suburb' in the centre of Copenhagen that is very hippy and alternative. They have their own laws and live within the boundaries. In certain parts of this area photos are not allowed. The lifestyle is laid back, but very interesting to see.
The day flew by and it was already evening. We walked back into Copenhagen, had cake and bought our last minute souvenirs. We went back to the 'weird' dinner place where we had dinner on our first night, for a delicious steak dinner.
After dinner we headed back to Sakskøbing with lots of photos taken and new memories stored. Thanks Maj and Allan, we had a great day!!
