Travel: My Time in Denmark (Day 5)

Posted 26 July, 2017 by Lianne in Travel / 4 Comments

At long last I am making my travel posts! Oh yes, that’s right, for about the next two weeks I am going to be posting, day by day, photos from my trip back in April and May to Iceland and Denmark πŸ˜€

Day 5 in Denmark! At this point my foot was much better, my cold was still raging, my skin allergies were driving me nuts, and the selfies dwindled between that and my hair refusing to cooperate. Otherwise, onward I went! πŸ˜› For my final day trip outside of Copenhagen I went to HillerΓΈd to visit Fredriksborg Slot (my time in Denmark pretty much consisted of me visiting as many castles and palaces as possible, lol). I think the words I used to describe the place was “idyllic” and “pictaresque” as you will see in the photos πŸ™‚ Again, relaxing trip although the signs were a little ridiculous in this town and it took quite a bit to get my sense of direction how to get to the castle (I wasn’t the only one, as I would find out walking along).

Oh, I should note, this was the only time during my time in Denmark when the weather was actually cloudy/rained a bit! Quite the contrast from the elements thrown at me whilst in Iceland xD

Travel: My Time in Denmark (Day 4)

My fourth day in Denmark was a bit busy. My foot was still bothering me but it wasn’t as bad as it was the previous day when I was in Helsingor (again, bummer that I couldn’t stay in Sweden for much longer as it was hurting so much). However I had a new development to my health: I came down with a cold. It really sucked, I was so mad (I could still taste my food but it was a pain to stop every so often to blow my nose). Talk about everything happening in the second half of my trip! πŸ™

Anyhow, I took a day trip to Roskilde on this day. Roskilde is about 30-40 minutes away from Copenhagen and it’s quite an important city historically as it does house the tombs of the Danish Royal Family (right up to present day). So I was curious to see the cathedral. Despite my runny nose, the trip itself was quite relaxed, you could just stroll up and down the street leisurely. Like Helsingor it was also quite easy to navigate to wherever it is you want to go as the street signs are pretty straightforward.

Travel: My Time in Denmark (Day 3)

Here we are at Day 3 of my time in Denmark. Day 3 saw me take my first day tour out of Copenhagen north to Helsingor, home of Kronborg Slot, otherwise known as Hamlet’s castle. The location is gorgeous; I had arrived quite early before the castle opened so I was wandering the grounds but also sitting against the coast and just staring out into the sea. It was beautiful, peaceful (despite the wind and the roaring waters), and reminded me of Iceland <3

Travel: My Time in Denmark (Days 1 & 2)

So here we are, at the second leg of my trip, which was spent in Denmark. This post contains photos from my first two days spent wandering around Copenhagen πŸ™‚ I think what startled me when I first arrived was just the amount of people, haha. After spending how many days in Iceland where there weren’t that many people and being out in nature, it took some readjusting being back in a city filled with people xD But despite Copenhagen having all the trappings of a cosmopolitan city, there’s a relaxed atmosphere to it, so despite having this itinerary I made myself on how I wanted to spend my time in Denmark, it still felt pretty relaxed, I didn’t feel at all rushed like “OMG I need to see everythig” which is good.

Anyhow, on to Copenhagen! As before, you can click on the images to enlarge and read the caption:

Day four in Iceland and at last I embark on my day tour to the Golden Circle πŸ˜› It’s a popular area in Iceland, showcasing the best and highlights of the land. I got rather comfortable the previous two days as the tour bus wasn’t packed, there was room to plop my day bag beside me and stretch a bit but here we were packed to the brim and I didn’t get a window seat so it was hard to take photos whilst we were on the road. But that’s okay…Oh, and the weather was finally clearing on this day, hurrah!

We started the day visiting an organic farm, which was pretty cool. Had arguably the best tomato soup I had ever tasted…and that homemade bread was just yum…I’m getting kinda dreamy just recalling that nice little meal *hearts* But anywho what was interesting about this particular day tour as well was how different the region was…it was interesting, the three day tours I took around Iceland, every area was different, shaped and developed differently. The Golden Circle was certainly greener and more lush compared to the isolation of South Iceland or the ruggedness of the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. It was very interesting.
