Fairy Tales & Rollercoasters

Started our day & ended it with a stroll through what we thought was a park (seriously on the map it looked like a park) how were we meant to know it was a fortress which the military still use today. Before you think they chased us out bayonets raised they didn't we saw one solider on patrol, other that your pretty free to wander through & explore but I guess they are watching you.


Walking out of the "park" we saw the not so ugly duckling with his siblings


We bumped into Hans Christian Anderson, he wasn't much of a talker nor would he sign an autograph


However where we spent a few hours today was Tivoli, I even got Mum on two rollercoasters (they were tame didn't even go upside down). We also went on a fairy tale ride which was all about HC Andersons fairy tales, by then it had gotten a little busy. The gardens where nice, we strolled through them and even caught a bit of a pantomime.

Mary & Fred Aren't Home

Mid afternoon we arrived in Copenhagen after spending the day traveling, just a few problems today cancelled train ... we ended up on the replacement bus & a hot train carriage ... we moved.

We decided to do a canal tour before we retreated to our hotel room to do washing. We got to see a far bit of Copenhagen from the water, maybe a little too much of the locals (nudist beach).


The censored version of The Little Mermaid -we might go see the other side tomorrow

Princess Mary isn't at home so maybe we'll catch them at there summer palace tomorrow

For now we are listening to the soundtrack of the rail line ... Yup it's only meters away from our window. The very nice hotel have given us ear plugs not sure how we'll share the one pair.

Ps thank you everyone for your comments xx
