To Copenhagen We Go

The day after the Tessin Palace we hopped on the train for a 5 hour ride through Sweden to Copenhagen, Denmark. The train moves pretty fast so it was difficult to get pictures out the window. The picture below was on the bridge halfway between Sweden and Denmark. It was interesting how flat things got the more South we went, not that Stockholm has big mountains to begin with. I also never tire of how sparse things get so quickly as you exit Stockholm. Anyway, the shorelines of the two countries were pretty and I liked all the wind farms out on the water.
After we got off the train we checked into our apartment I rented through Airbnb. It turned out to be in the middle of the red light district but besides that it was a nice place. We went out to dinner somewhere along Nyhavn where we got to sit outside and enjoy the view and the weather.

After dinner we walked home along the world's longest pedestrian mall. Luckily it was late enough that everything was closed so it wasn't crowded and we could enjoy looking at the architecture.
Then we were home and called it a day. Traveling by train is surprisingly exhausting even though it's so much easier than flying.
Love Always,
