The Happiest Place in the World

Copenhagen, Denmark.  We had a long weekend at the end of September, so we took the opportunity to visit a cold country with lots of happy people.. when there was still light and a little bit of warmth.  Sadly, the kids are tired of sightseeing, so we tried to focus on things they would like, which pretty much focused on the one big thing in Copenhagen.. Tivoli Gardens.  We stayed at the Tivoli Hotel which was a mile walk away from town (a bit farther than we would have liked).  The first night we had dinner at Nimb which is in the Nimb Hotel.. the only hotel incorporated in to Tivoli Gardens.  The meal was delicious and we had window access to all that was going on inside of the park.. which included a rock concert.  I will say, however, our meal was a good $400 for us.. which was a bit of a surprise.. so buyer be warned… Copenhagen isn’t cheap!

We spent the first full day in Copenhagen walking down the main street.. past all of the shops.. and finally ending in Nyhaven which is where the picture above was taken.  The kids were bored and I jokingly suggested that they should make adult strollers for us to push them around in.. to alleviate the complaining.  And to that, Owen said he’d love it if it had wi-fi…

Once we got to Nyhaven we sat and people watched…

There was the hat lady..

Love…

Musicians..

And the next day, we headed to the long awaited.. Tivoli Gardens..

The kids loved it… Doug loved it.. I, like always was a bit nervous.. especially as we rode a manually controlled roller coaster!  It required an attendant to personally slow the coaster down on turns and to stop…

A bit too creepy for me..  But all in all, we had a great time.  There’s still so much I’d love to see and do in Cophenhagen… someday I’ll head back… but this trip was for the kids.. :)
