2014 Denmark

Oh my... I have to carry this on my shoulder... Should I give him a break and carrying this for a bit... An early morning visit to the Christiansborg Palace (left). Thorvaldsens Museum on the right. Just finished breakfast with the Queen in Christiansborg Palace, or was it a different lady I got mixed up with...  Hmm... May be I would go in to try out the royal coaches and wagons...  Thorvaldsens Musem Let me do the same pose... I don't think I want to get into a fight with him... don't want to get whacked... The mermaid I first read about with her head being sawed off by vandalism - when I was in high school. It is a logical place to have the mermaid on the rock...
Amagertorv Square, Copenhagen I love this little guy... so cute! The canals remind us of Amsterdam... Old Stock Exchange at the back, Parliament on the right. A part-time job to help pay for this trip... King's Garden, Rosenborg Palace Rosenborg Palace A rather modest palace, Rosenborg Palace. A comfortable palace and not overwhelming...
May be we should stay in the Nimb Hotel, inside Tivoli... Lots of flowers and lushy green... Chinese Pavilion, Tivoli Build A Bear Workshop... do I need a bear?? Do I look like the silly dog right above me?? Read it in reverse: I love it! Tivoli, second oldest amusement park in the world, opened in 1843.  Dyrehavsbakken ("The Deer Park Hill"), commonly referred to as Bakken ("The Hill") is the oldest amusement park, located 10Km north of Copenhagen, opened in 1583. Odense - birth Place of Hans Christian Andersen. Hans Christian Andersen museum and its open-air stage...
On my way to the open-air stage... Hans Christian Andersen Museum What a colorful sculpture! Hans Christian Andersen was born in this yellow house. The writer was the son of a poor cobbler and became the world's most acclaimed writer of fairytales. He's going to read me one of his fairytales... Interesting, isn't it? Poor Hans Christian Anderson... well, got to have a sense of humor... I like this fireplace... Den Gamle By (The Old Town), Arhus
Dreamy eyes... just looking at the stained glass windows... The Mintmaster's Mansion on the left, built in 1683. Arhus Mayor's House, built in 1597. The Mayor's cocktail reception was nice... hmm... Baroque staircase from the 1720s... Welcome to my house... I can work here and... ... drink beer all day long Scary giant potion pot...
Post office with telegram service. I just sent you a telegram, did you get it?? Very quiet and peaceful... It would be nice to relax here for a week or two... A beautiful town with 75 historical houses from all over Denmark... An Open-Air Museum... Look what I found... a treasure box! Everywhere is so quiet and not a lot of visitors... Den Gamle By (The Old Town), Arhus
