Travelling across the bridge to Malmo you definitely do feel like you are entering a completely new place despite only being a short ride away. Do sit on the right side so you can see across the water and at the ships, you can even at points see along the rest of the bridge. The first coach leaves Copenhagen at 10.15am and picks up again in Malmo at 4.15pm, we got into Malmo at just before 11.30am and so had just over 5 hours.
First of all I know it has been 5 months since my last post, plus leaving you all hanging on part 1 of our Copenhagen trip and not following promptly with part 2! Sorry! I will explain in another post but without further delay here is part 2 of our 96 hours in Copenhagen which was actually a year ago, to the day, this week!
Our first trip of a packed full 2017! Being in October now we have already been away five times (including this holiday) and visited a total of eight countries so it was about time to get back on track and catch up!
As we landed in Copenhagen back at the start of the year, we were greeted with rain… and lots of it. Our first decision in Denmark was how best to get into the city. You can choose between the train, bus or taxi, after a bit of research it seemed the quickest option would be the train.
On our second day in Tallinn, we headed across on the ferry to Helsinki, Finland. It was super easy, having bought our tickets online before we left for Estonia. On the day it was just a case of simply heading down to the port, which we had checked out the day before so we knew where to go.
After fighting our way through the queues to get on the ferry we then saw everyone run off, people were upstairs, downstairs, in the bar, in the restaurant and the window sills. It soon became clear that seating was limited as after 10 minutes it all settled down and many people were sitting (or sleeping) on the floor.
Back to where it all began.
2015 saw the first of our European adventures and the start our 4 day holidays. With only the two holidays abroad this year, first to Norway and then to Sweden, the second part of the year was spent in Edinburgh and Cornwall.
For these two holidays, and many afterwards, you will hear me continually say ‘We enjoyed travelling to x’ and the simple truth is, we did. There has, to date, not been one place we have regretted going to or not found interesting. I apologise now that it will pop up in blogs from time to time but I will try and either use better adjectives or refrain from the phrase.
Continuing our Scandinavian Adventure it seems only right to go in the order we travelled in soo… our next big trip was Gothenburg, Sweden, a beautiful place with so much to see!
Hot chocolates, cafes, tram travelling, park viewing and good food. We packed in a lot in our 4 days, so much so that I don’t know how best to fit it all into this post.
A special mention has to go to the Universeum, which was initially meant as a time filler but ended up being one of the most interesting museums we have been too. You could not only be an astronaut but also visit a rain forest and go back in time to the ice age. I would, without a doubt, class this as a must do!
The first stop on our holiday adventures was Oslo, Norway.
Our first holiday…together. Just me and him. Now they say you don’t know a person until you live with them, well a holiday is considered a crash course.
We had arrived at that point in our lives where you have to start thinking of the future, with plans of growing up and moving in together looming, we thought now is the time to do what we want before we have responsibilities.
