Copenhagen and Stockholm
So before Italy at all I was in Copenhagen and Stockholm.
I liked Copenhagne but the weather was not great, raining pretty much the entire time. But for the couple of hours it was not I enjoyed walking around the city. I wish I had a change to go to Tivoli, the amusement park int he middle of the city, but the weather did not permit it. I did walk to see the parlement and mermaid statue.
On my way back to hostel I saw a stage set up in the bid square on H.C Andersen Street. It was a proformance for Danmarks African Beauty Queen. There was a band and a few women dancing. It was very interesting to see. I loved how enthusiastic they were. It reminded me of the dance breaks we would take in the kitchen at PIC. I miss it, I have been craving it.
After Copenhagen I headed to Stockholm. One thing I love about Scandinevia is the colorful houses. They are gorgeous, bright yellow and golden houses. I am going to paint my house golden yellow and my door bright blue. Mom, Dad dont be surprised, I warned you.
In stockholm I stayed with Jonatan Dehnisch and his family which consisted of his mother, Marie, Sister Julia and Brother Jakob. It was really nice to have a place I could just hang out for awhile. the first full day Jonatan and I went into the city and walked around. It was cold and rainy, which sucked, bnut I did get to see old town and some of the castle and other old buildings.
The next day we headed to Drottingholm Palace. It was a prestine day out. There were perfect clouds in the bright blue sky. When you think of the perfect royal palace that is what this was, the gardens were perfecting trimmed and cared for. It was the total opposite of the past couple of days. No rain what so ever, such a releif.
So I was trying to decide whether to take 3 days to travel to Itlay by train or fly and take 3 hours, easy choice right? not really, because the flight was 120 dollers compared to reservations for trains would be about 70 dollers, but I ultimately decided to fly. Although I was spending more I think it would have been such a hassle to take the train.
I am sorry about the bad spelling there is a line behind me for the computer and I feel bad, so I am not taking my time.
Overall It was great, I hope to go back someday to Denmark with my family and I think I will enjoy that more.
