After we arrived to Copenhagen about 4 am, we slept couple hours. It was actually REALLY hard to find parking place. We had to drive around over a hour before we found some parking plot where we could sleep. In a morning we drived to the centre of Copenhagen and somehow found parking place next to Tivoli Gardens where we wanted to go. Like a day before it was raining. Fortunately it wasn't downpour so we didn't have to put so much clothes on than to the zoo.
Inside the park first thing I haded to do was to find bank automat. I changed money before we left in Finland, but the bank didn't have Danish krones (Denmark's currency) so I had almost money at all, just so much that we got in to Tivoli.
For a start of the day we tried couple rides and they were fun. I tried to get my friend to go with me in Tivoli's famous ride, world's tallest carousel, but I she didn't want to go so I decided to go there later. Next we did go to this ride which introduces H.C. Andersen's fairy tales. It was really fun and interesting though in some points commentary did go too fast. We actually did go again there later 'cause my friend wanted to film whole thing.
In one point of the day I broked my phone! I had took pictures with it (I didn't own camera back then) and I dropped it on ground. I couldn't anymore take pics with it and 'cause I really needed camera for the rest of the trip, we looked for a store and bought new camere for me! I didn't have much money to spend to it so I bought one of the cheapest ones, but looked first that it was enough good. First thing that catched my attention in that camera was that it was pink (my second favourite colour).
At the evening we finally decided to go to that world's tallest carousel, but when we were suppose to get in my friend had a change of mind and she got too scared of the ride and didn't want anymore go there so I haded to go alone. It actually looks more scary than what it is. When I was in it I couldn't actually even tell how high I was. Worst thing of whole thing was the wind. When you are so high (I think 80 metres) it gets really windy and 'cause I took my shoes off my toes were freezing. Also my hair was after it in horrible mess. After the ride I decided to try some drink which everybody there seem to like.
We were there almost till closing time (12 am). Last thing we saw there was light show in the lake. It was really cool and music was dramatic. Fortunately it didn't rain whole day just in morning and it started to rain again little before we left. It was already so late when we got back to RV, so we decided to sleep on that parking place (in the middle of Copenhagen's centre! Not so silent place..). That place was also close to the place where we were suppose to go next day.
