Tuesday we hopped on our bikes and headed downtown. We started the tour with Nyhavn, the very well known harbour. Above are pictures from Nyhavn with the colourful building fronts and boats in the harbour. We had beautiful weather, of course it was quite windy but that's to be expected!
Next stop on the tour was Amalienborg Palace, where the Queen lives! Unfortunately she was on vacation at the time so we did not get to see her. We did however meet some guards, and by meet I mean we stood 3ft away from them, they didn't like it if you stood too close.
Our path brought us to one of the most well known spots in Copenhagen - The Little Mermaid! We took a few pictures then sat down on the rocks, soaked up the sun and took in the beauty of the little statue that sat so perfectly poised on the rocks. She may be a little statue but it was definitely one of our favourite stops.
Yes, there are lots of pictures of Leah, what can I say - I LOVE my new camera!
Last stop on the tour was the glass covered market. Above left is a picture from inside one of the two markets. We sat and enjoyed a coffee and then browsed all of the fresh food available. We ended up getting some fresh fish, a baguette, cheese and a cheese dip for our dinner (pictured below). Above right is a picture of the "Happy Wall". The side of a construction wall has been turned into this interactive wall. It has these little 'doors' with hinges and when you open it it's colourful and black when you close it. We spelled out Leah's name (Brooke is a little more difficult)! It's a very cool idea to turn a boring construction wall into something fun and interactive!
By the end of the day we were exhausted! It was a great day and we got to see so much of the city :)
