Copenhagen, July 2007

Second in my batch of forgotten travel photos are some shots from my day in Copenhagen in Denmark in July 2007. I spent a couple of weeks cruising around Scandinavia, so got to spend a day in quite a few amazing cities.
I must take a second to apologise that these photos are not up to the usual standard you have hopefully come to expect for me and my blog, 4 years is a very long time, and I’m glad to say that my photography skills have come a very long way in that time! 


This statue is the reason I’m posting the rest of the less than brilliant photos from the rest of my day in the city, I just had to show it to you – the symbol of Copenhagen, The Little Mermaid. She sits in the port, looking out to sea in a tribute to and reminder of Copenhagen’s most famous writer, Hans Christian Anderson. 

I really loved the cities architecture, and how green it was. Apparently they pay sky high taxes there, but no one minds too much as the streets are so clean, safe and their public services like health and education are world class.


This ship we saw in the museum that  housed the royal collection is made entirely out of very, very fine and intricately carved ivory – so amazing!


I seem to remember that all of the Danish crown jewels were absolutely beautiful, and quite a sight to behold!

Have any of you ever been to Copenhagen?
