We arrived around 10:30 am and took the train back to the main station and walked the half a mile to our hotel. We dropped off our bags with a mission to get to the Nyhavn area, which is the beautiful area with the colorful buildings and beautiful boats. Right away we realized that a lot of Copenhagen is under construction, but it did not ruin our walk to Nyhavn.
Nyhavn is a beautiful area
We were starving, so we found a place to stop for lunch and drinks. We had a great time just sitting in the sunshine and watching people walk around.
Our lunchtime view
We enjoyed our spot in Nyhavn for quite some time before we got up to walk around and find some ice cream. This has to be the longest we have been in Europe without having an ice cream cone!
Loving Copenhagen and that we are wearing short sleeves!
We left Nyhavn and wandered around the city. We stumbled upon one of the main shopping areas, which had beautiful buildings and fountains all around.
There were many shopping options in Copenhagen
The Danes love their bikes
We continued to wander around the city stopping for drinks when we felt the need to. We walked all over Copenhagen and deemed it to be one of our favorite cities. We found a place for dinner and then stumbled upon a park where people were playing kick ball, enjoying drinks, and eating food. We stopped and enjoyed a few cocktails of our own.
Enjoying my Aperol Spritz in the park
To finish off our night, we stopped off at the brewery where we spent our first evening in Copenhagen.
Ken ending his time in Copenhagen at the same place it began two weeks early.
The next day we woke up and started the long journey back to Kansas City, where we almost missed our flight thanks to customs in Toronto.
The long haul home
Even though our weather was less than ideal, we had an amazing trip together. We got to see a part of the world we have wanted to see for a while. Denmark and Norway will hold a special place in my heart. Until next time Europe!
