Copenhagen

The cruise started in Copenhagen, where after more than 16 hours spent on airplanes and in airports we collected our luggage and sent it off to the ship so we could explore a bit of the city. We were sleep deprived and feeling a bit grimy, but didn't want to miss our opportunity to spend a few hours exploring Copenhagen. First on our list was Trivoli Gardens, which turned out to be a waste of time and money, but a good place to start our city tour.

Next we walked to a church (the first of MANY we saw on this trip.) This one was unique because it contained a statue of Christ which was used as the model for one in the Salt Lake Temple.

Next up we headed to the main shopping area of town. We walked into a ton of stores selling items for the home (who can resist Scandinavian design?) But sadly, must not have been in the mood to buy, because not a single purchase was made in Copenhagen (at least on this first visit.)

We eventually stopped for lunch, and it seemed as if my vision of relaxing at little cafes in the capitals of Scandinavia and people watching was off to a good start, too bad it was the last time we'd take the time for a relaxing lunch.

With a bit more energy we set off to see Rosenburg Castle and the surrounding park. This was my favorite part of the city. I enjoyed chilling in the park and watching the locals sun bath and touring the beautiful old castle.Soon we headed off for the ship, where we checked in and settled in for the trip. My time in Copenhagen was no where near this cool, but it's a great song.
