My Photo Adventure

Out and About in Copenhagen City


So many places we visited during the 10 day trip. I’m not very much into commentary for my travels since I tend to focus on the photography instead. In my short trip to Denmark and South Sweden, I can see why both are such livable countries. I suppose the weather in summer makes the travel even more pleasing, even though in its hottest hours can’t be compared to our sweltering humid mid afternoon temperatures of 35 degrees in Singapore.

Riding the train from the airport into the city took a very short 20 minutes

As with any main station in cities downtown, Copenhagen’s Central Station was no different. It was early morning when we reached and it was already teeming with people on the go.

I was surprised at the large amounts of graffati art all over the train stations and city walls. It added grit and edge to a city that I had expected to be relaxed and laid back.

We took the hop on and off bus tours on our first day to orientate ourselves with the sights in the city. Along the journey in the streets of Copenhagen, we were treated to beautiful sights. Taking the canal cruise is a must too. Lots to see.

So the sight most associated with Copenhagen must surely be the Little Mermaid. It was tough getting a good shot of her solitary. I jostled my way to the front to get this…….

In actual fact, the scene was more like this….
