    Allycatsmommy's visit to Copenhagen

    Julie and her husband Warren was in Copenhagen friday.

    Susanne and I met them by the ship at Langelinie.



    They had managed to get us on the guest list. Here they’re looking for our names.



    So we took a tour of the ship first, it’s huge!





    Before touring Copenhagen, we had a cup of coffee and enjoyed the view.





    More in next post .....

    While we were on the ship, the alarms went off. They had a fire drill - no panic!





    Then we walked along the harbour front, up to see the little Mermaid and Amalienborg where the Queen lives. Didn’t get a picture of that, but Julie did.

    Here she is with Warren in front of the Gefion fountain.



    It was time for a bit of lunch at Cafe Petersborg. I’d thought they’d like the food there, since Hilary Clinton did. We could not persuade them to try marinated herrings, but I do understand that!!



    Still more in next post ....

    After a good lunch, we went to Rosenborg Castle.



    We saw old furniture ...








    I think Fister would fit on this chair.

    Julie on the staircase going up to see more.



    We also went down in the cellar to see the Crown jewels. I think Julie got pictures of some of those.



    In the end, we decided to go and visit the Harley Davidson shop. We took buses around, and also the Metro.



    We wanted to go many more places, but time was limited. Julie and Warren had to be back on the ship by 17.00. However, we had a very nice day together!

    Julie and Warren, we really enjoyed meeting you. Hope you had a nice journey to Dover - and hope you'll be posting soon!

    OMG! How awesome! It looks like a fine time was had by all. Can't wait for more pics from Julie!


    (Randi- you are SO right. That chair was MADE for Fister!)

    Loved seeing all of these pictures!! Randi how sweet of you to meet them and give them a tour of that beautiful, beautiful city!!

    Isn't this an amazing thing? - PT friends can have their own private tour guide and get to meet people we only know by posting here about our animals. I love it

    Julie and Warren - so nice to "meet" you in pictures - hope you are having the most wonderful time.

    Sorry about that Karen, Barbara and QSL. I realised I had posted on General, so I deleted it. Glad you posted again, Karen

    You finally got to see our fairly new member, Sus.

    Btw, here's a link to Copenhagen restaurants. Perhaps I can entice more to come. www.aok.dk

    Click on "Efter køkkentype" and them on "Dansk traditionelt" and you'll find Cafe Petersborg, where we went. There are a few pictures on the various links.

    It's been a couple of years since I last went to see the cruise ships at the "Langelinie" quay - and in the meantime they have grown almost ridiculously big!!! I was awe-struck! I spent more time gaping at the view from the top deck than I did noticing the marvellous surroundings on board: We were actually higher up in the air than most of Copenhagen....!

    It really was a treat to be able to come on board - thank you Julie and Warren!

    Lots of love,
    Sus and the Bellacat

    Yep, and please do notice the good company, we're in! On the wall behind us are pictures of danish royalty: The late king Frederik lX and queen Ingrid, the parents of our present queen Margrethe II! I felt compelled to be at my best behaviour...!!

    Apologies accepted Randi....but I still want to see Julie's pics of the Crown Jewels! Looks like a beautiful place to visit, and looks like everyone had a terrific time as well.
