This weekend, we met up with Kung Foolish and Rhubarbara Streisand in Copenhagen.
Copenhagen is in Denmark. We like cities on the water, and Copenhagen fell into this category.

I think the coolest thing about the city is how the water was integrated into day-to-day life. Copenhagen just isn’t on the water, life there is all about the water.
Our canal tour leaving from colorful Nyhavn harbor
Pulling out of Nyhavn, all the locals were enjoying a beautiful summer day, sitting on the sides of the harbor drinking beers (mostly BYOB or out of vending machines)
A few of the naval museums. Including a ship (left) and a submarine (right). Being on the water, the Danish navy presence had to be big.

There were many boat bars and waterfront bars. We enjoyed a round at Badlejing.
Also what was neat is to see the blending of architecture, old and new. The Danish are very progressive and very green. Their modern buildings were balanced quite well with their historical sites.

View into the centre of town at the old architecture of Amalienborg Palace
Beautiful modern buildings juxtaposed with classic Danish buildings

Looking down Straegrade street at the pastel buildings
I am a sucker for colorful buildings.

Beyond the water and the architecture, we really enjoyed the food & nightlife. But we’ll save that for tomorrow.
