Day #7 of Eurotrip: Copenhagen Denmark... up north in the cold!!
Upon our arrival in Copenhagen, we had no idea the confusion and difficulties the danish currency would give us. We were told we could use our euros, but this was not the case. Prices were in the hundreds of dkk´s (the name of their currency) and often stumped us with the 1:5 and 1:7 ratios between Canadian and Euro dollars. Luckly we ignored these rules and engaged in a major shopping spree... who needs math?! We found the fact that our train drove onto the ferry quite interesting and unexpected. We rode the ferry 45 minutes north to arrive in Denmark. On this ferry, we discovered a duty-free shop where we obviously purchased a 3 litre box of red wine, which you will come to find evident the same evening in the pictures. That night we met some Finnish and American travellers and once we finished catching up, decided to take the party and the box of wine to the park. You will come to see what we did that night... you be the judge.
The next day, we had a full day to experience the life of the danish. We toured the city, seeing the Rosenburg castle and many other cool spots. One of these being the shopping area which we much much enjoyed until we got lost for an hour and a half. Good thing we weren´t late to meet our friends to watch the soccer game. That night, we played some cards, watched the game and kicked back a few danish beers (Carlsburg).
