Oggy, oggy… Copenhagen

Travelling the world – it’s all about experiencing different cultures… and being able to eat an oggy when you need one.

We arrived in Copenhagen this morning, did some tourist stuff… then went to Scandinavia’s only Cornish Pasty shop for lunch! (Thanks guys, proper job.)

Sampling the wares at the Cornish Pasty House with owners Jason and Tariq.

The last couple of days have been pretty relaxed. We left Cafe Hans in Karise on Monday morning and enjoyed an easy and short ride to Karlslunde, where we gave a talk to the local Rotary Club that evening.

L: Saying goodbye at Cafe Hans. M: Hello to the Little Mermaid. R: Old buildings in Nyhavn, Copenhagen.

Today, we spent some time seeing the sights – visiting the Little Mermaid, climbing the spiral stairs on the outside of the spire of Vor Frelsers Church. Thanks to Joern, our host from Karlslunde, we also had a guided tour of the police HQ – a fascinating building that looked more like it should have been an old theatre.

Finished the day with a ShelterBox display outside the Marriott Hotel. Tomorrow it’s a long day – about 64 miles to Kalundborg.

  1. Huw and Carolyn, it was a pleasure to show you around Copenhagen and introduce you to a range of Shelterbox supporters. I have put some of my photos from the visit here http://www.flickr.com/photos/garethgarvey/sets/72157626858990248/ .
