The good thing about all these extremely long train rides and early mornings/overnights: I have learned the art of sleeping in public! This is a big deal for me, as I have suffered from Princess and the Pea syndrome for most of my life.
After 14 years of letters, post cards, presents and emails I reunited with an old friend in Copenhagen. I can’t describe how amazing it is to see someone after so long. Thanks to Facebook, I knew what she would look like, but I was so curious how she would sound.
Copenhagen hadn’t changed much since February. Yeah, the snow has melted and the trees are budding, but it’s still absolutely frigid. We didn’t let the weather stop us from enjoying the city or bonding over how many attractive men there are…
I was walking around the shopping district of downtown Copenhagen, when I stumbled across this tower and church. Copenhagen is a pretty small city, but I found I could walk around aimlessly and was never very far from something interesting.
History lesson of the day: The Rundetaarn was built in 1642 and is Europe’s oldest functioning observatory.
I was pleasantly surprised that, instead of having to climb stairs, there was actually a circular walkway to the top. It made the climb a lot more pleasant, especially with a twisted ankle. In case anyone is curious, this is called an equestrian staircase.
