Today, I participated in DIS’s version of Amazing Race. It’s really wasn’t a competition, more of an opportunity to explore some of the attractions in Copenhagen.
Destination #1: Christiansborg Castle Square – Danish Parliament
Destination #2 : The Royal Library aka The Black Diamond
This is Denmark’s national library. One side of the library is surrounded with a nice garden with an old Europe touch. The other part of the library is of modern decor facing the beautiful harbor.
Destination #3 : Nyhavn Harbor
We took the harbor bus to Nyhavn. I saw the opera house across the water; I must visit one of these days!
Destination #4 : Amalienborg – The Royal Palace
Since the flag on the queen’s house was up, it meant she was home at the time of our visit!
Destination #5 : Frederikskirke – Marble Church
Destination #6 : Rosenberg
New Danish foods I tried today:
Flødebolle – a chocolate covered, beaten-egg white glucose and sugar treat which reminded me of Mallomars minus the graham cracker
Antons Hyldeblomst – a typical Danissh juice drink
Danish hotdog – the hotdog actually sticks a third outside of the bun
