If Copenhagen were a person, that person would be generous, beautiful, elderly, but with a flair. A human being that has certain propensities for quarrelling, filled with imagination and with appetite for the new and with respect for the old – somebody who takes good care of things and of people.
– Connie Nielsen
If cities have souls, Copenhagen has one of the most beautiful.
Our stop in here wasn’t really a sightseeing one – it was prep for Ironman. And although we did get to see some parts of the city, I only glimpsed the Little Mermaid, but it isn’t a problem – it just means we have reasons to go back.
To get to Copenhagen from Hamburg, there is a massive bridge – its something like 20km in total, and seems to go on forever. But it ain’t half pretty.
Things that happened in Copenhagen (some more impressive feats than others)
We stopped out of the camper in Copenhagen, opting for an apartment via Air BnB, thus allowing more space – and a shower. Knowing that our main objective for the time in this city was for Sam to complete his Ironman triathlon (2.5mile swim, 112mile bike and a marathon) we spent a fair bit of time relaxing, or checking out the course.
I went for a run and a bike ride (because I’m trying to be healthy)
Sam completed his Ironman (and was generally exhausted)
We ate Danish pastries (yum) and saw some rather beautiful buildings!
Denmark Fun and Oddities
We found a place called Middelfart. Which totally amused us in a very childish way.
Plug sockets look like smiley faces 🙂
