Copenhagen, Berlin, Stockholm and Cruise Through the Baltics

Arrived in Copenhagen to much cooler weather than we are used to. We did see the sun one day for a about an hour. Toured the city by hop on hop off bus and a canal tour. Our hotel was directly across the street from Tivoli Gardens. It was established in 1843 and has a small foot print but is jammed with some very scary rides. It has become the Scandinavian Disneyland. It does have some very beautiful gardens with flowers that seemed to thrive in the Copenhagen climate. We saw a little rabbit rolling around the grass. It works like those robot floor cleaners that move about your house sweeping up dust. This thing seems to cut the grass.

It is a very expensive city to visit. It is socialism at its finest. Gas is $6.50+ per gallon. Burgers are in the $30 range and one place charged $5 for a small bottle of water.

    • Not all the country’s are expensive. Berlin isn’t expensive as Italy. Portugal and Lisbon very cheap and Barcelona was reseanable. But the dollar weakness right now will make these a little higher. Compared to the Euro. But Copenhagen is way too expensive. Cooler than Arizona here for sure…I like being able to wear a coat.

  1. Looks like you took it all in!!! I think Copenhagen has always been expensive!! When I was there in ’73 it was the popular Europe on $5 or $10 a day time!! Totally broke the bank there!!! I remember a Coke was about $2.00 & that was when the were maybe 26 cents in the US!! Luckily when We were in Sweden we had friends in Uppsala north of Stockholm we could stay with In their Dorm room!! $6.50 for gas is a lot!! Enjoy your journeys!!! Thanks for the travelogue!! XO

  2. Dear Pam and Lance, THANK YOU for the beautiful pictures. I was hitch hiking all over Europe in 1967. Your pictures bring back many wonderful memories!!!! We’re having beautiful weather, and we’re busy catching up with friends in Minn. Safe travels!!!!! Your friend, Linda


    • Oh Linda, somehow the picture of you hitch hiking just doesn’t compute. I bet you had fun. Glad your enjoying your summer in MN. We have lots to catch up on when you return. Had some bad news a month ago my beautiful daughter was diagnosed with MS. I spent much time there in California helping her. Hopefully, she will be in remission soon. It was hard to leave. But she is doing better and we are letting it go for now. Enjoying the cooler weather here for sure.
