Photos from Danmark - I know this is a language discuss, but hey, if you're learning Danish (or know it) then I'm sure you must like the land of Danmark! Heres a few photos from my time there on July 30, 31st, and August 1st, 2nd, 9th and 10th of 2004!

Ah, Nyhavn. We boarded our tour here, it was an hour long and only cost 25Kr each!! The bad part was that there was no wind, and my Danish friend and I were cooked alive and came off dripping in sweat. Not so nice! But Nyhavn is a very nice area, always full of people and has great atmosphere.



Tivoli! A very popular amusement park among tourists and locals alike, in the heart of the city. Photo taken in a very big square beside the Town Hall. I went there on the Friday night and there was some popular Danish star singing there, whom I had never heard of!! But Tivoli is a must see, loads of fun!



Many of you will know of København's little mermaid. From a Hans Christian Andersen story, and Danes are very proud of this guy! Photo taken on the tour boat, it was very popular at the time, but was almost deserted at 5pm when we viewed it from land itself.



What do you do when you want to go swimming, but you don't want to drive or take the train to the beach? You build a big floating swimming pool, complete with a diving tower! Not so good if you get seasick... or for the claustrophobic, it was packed!



Home to the Danish Royal Family, who just happen to be the oldest Monarchy in the world. They seem cool anyway, much better than the English lot. (no offence intended to any Royal loving English person though!) Everyone I talked to seemed to love their Australian princess... wonder how her Dansk is coming along! They were changing the guards when we got there, which was quite cool to watch.



Leaving København now, this is Frederiksborg Castle, in Hillerød, which wasn't too far from where I was staying (just out of Hellsinge). A very impressive building, it'd do me quite nicely :)



I don't know the actual name of this place, as I just got in the car and was driven there! A very nice spot, by the beach... and quite near Sweden - you could see the Swedish coastline in the distance (but not in this photo). The harbour was very picturesque...



Back to the wonderful city of København, which again turned on some nice weather for my last little bit of time in Danmark. I stayed in the city this time, not out at my friends place. So I headed along to Nyhavn that evening and captured the place just as the sun was turning it golden... looked awesome! Was alive with people too, drinking that wonderful Carlsberg! :D

- is the discuss screwing up the images for anyone else is well? I don't get it, its all formatted correctly. But computers will be computers I guess... always something screwing up! ;)

- Hi Twizzla!
Great Pictures!
I've scaled them down a bit in size so that they would open more easily and fixed the links for you so that everyone can see where you've travelled!
Thank you so much for the great story!
