It All Ends in Denmark...

For some reason three of my posts were deleted and I have to re-type them, so I hope I don't forget anything!  Well, we got into Copenhagen at about 4 I think and we walked to our hostel (that turned out to be a skyscraper) and checked into our room.  We actually had a really nice view:

Once we were unpacked, we asked the guy what he would suggest for the one night we had in Copenhagen and he drew us a walking path that brought us through all the important places and sights.  So, off we went.  Probably what Copenhagen is most famous for is Hans Christian Anderson.  You know his stories: "The Ugly Ducking", "The Little Mermaid" "Thumbelina" and "The Little Match Girl".  He is featured all over Copenhagen.

We were pretty hungry, so we got some snacks to hold us over until the dinner we had purchased in Stockholm.  I got some KFC and Braden picked some things up from 7-11.  I love America.  

We started walking along our path and there were not very many souvenir shops, which is strange, but welcome at the same time.  We saw a lot of street performers and high fashion stores.  We also got to see yet another harbor.  As Braden knows all too well, I love water.

Looks like Amsterdam, doesn't it.  Well, it's not. 

We got to see some pretty buildings and we also walked through the Royal Palace. This one was much more impressive than Stockholm.  Braden also told me Denmark has the longest line of Monarchs, before the British, even.  And who is their most famous king? 

That's right, Shakespeare's Hamlet.  Well, we kept walking and talking about the future until we got to the main sight to see in Copenhagen (in my opinion), the Little Mermaid statue. It's SO FREAKIN' COOL.

From there we walked home.  On the way home there were three interesting things that happened.  First, the sun started to set as we walked through the palace.  Second, we noticed that we had passed a Cold Stone ice cream place and now it was closed.  Third, we stopped by a random place and sent a video post card home to our mothers.

We stopped at one last Hard Rock and had a great dinner at the hostel.  We met some guys who were just starting their EuRail European adventure, and it was bittersweet to know that ours was coming to an end. We for sure made the most of it.  When we went up to our room, we met two girls from I think South Carolina that are studying in Prague and it was great to talk about our experiences and everything.  We chatted for about an hour.  It was a great last night of our adventures alone together.
