Leaving Amsterdam for Nijmegen was a treat as I really was looking forward to my day with Bram. It’s amazing the bonds that beer can bring about. In keeping with tradition the first thing we did was watch the royal wedding… and then grab a metric tonne of beer. It was such a treat to see him again, and I cannot wait for round 3 in Canada.

I got to ride my first proper European train through Holland in order to make the flight to Copenhagen. It was short, but lovely, and everything I imagined a train ride should be. To the point of reaching Copenhagen… It was by far the most difficult place to get to so far. Buses took 18 hours from Amsterdam. No train unless you go back, forward, loop de loop. So naturally I flew, and being a European flight of such a small distance I was barely in the air before we did the landing procedure.

The land of Denmark… my heart stopped… the ladies. Heaven.
So I was lucky enough to have a wonderful Danish friend here in town and I got the full treatment. Over the next two days I was shown the entire city. My feet hurt.
Instead of write out everything I saw I think I’ll just let the photos show you. Unfortunately in the second half of photos I was caught in a beautiful park without my camera so my phone had to pick up the slack, and it failed. Bit miffed.

The rest of my time has been spent hanging out with a new friend, Kellie, who also as it turns out is also Australian. Shocker. We share a mutual disdain for Aussieland and a need to adventure elsewhere. She herself is now located in Norway, as I will be one day.

Highlights of our adventures include nearly having our cameras/phones taken off us in the Free City of Christiania. Apparently you can’t take photos of their drug street… who knew. You can see the man here on his way to tell me off …
I have to say this place was weird. Just weird. Like a dirty, gypsy version of Amsterdam. It was definitely not somewhere I will go again, and definitely not somewhere I am suited for. Each to their own though.

Tomorrow I take my first long distance train to Sweden…
