15 – 18 November 2013
After Jalen’s visit to Vienna, Lizzie and I felt that we owed him a visit in Copenhagen. Besides, neither one of us had ever been to Denmark, so that was a plus! We chose a weekend that coincided with another guest’s visit, which worked out marvelously as we just went Dutch on the food, room, and board. And the room and board was most spectacular indeed: a real live Copenhagen boat house! (Or is it houseboat?)
On the first break I could foresee from my intense school calendar, Lizzie and I scheduled one of those famous cheap European flights from Vienna to CPH. Within three short weeks we found ourselves in the Københavns Lufthavn.
After some terrific conversation and catching up on the latest and greatest, and of course a few drinks, we went home to a boat. It’s a funny concept, if you think about it. We were lulled to sleep like babies by the very occasional but gentle current. In the morning, we arose to this site:
That day, Lizzie and I decided to return to the city’s center so as to get a clearer picture of a very photogenic Copenhagen. We had a delightful time of it, exploring random shops, eating delectable pastries and coffees and hot chocolates. After all, Denmark was practically in winter already!
On our last day in this grand city, Jalen had pre-arranged for Lizzie and I to attend the world-wide famous Tivoli amusement park. It was a generous gift and a wonderful experience. Being November, Tivoli was already dressed in its Christmas best. Check it!
We had a delightful time in Denmark. And the memories from this experience will take long to die out. And, of course, getting to see Jalen (and for so cheap) was jolly good. After all, it was cheaper and more exciting to visit in Europe than it is in the U.S.! Of course, we have yet to figure out if visiting Jalen was the icing or the cake itself on such a great trip. Regardless, it was deliciously good fun!
