Denmark

A bumpy start to be sure of this holiday in Scandinavia.  My flight was delayed a bit, but daughter Jessica’s flight was so delayed, that her flight from Istanbul to Copenhagen had left without her.  She was able to secure a seat, but not until much later, arriving nearly 7 hours later than scheduled in Copenhagen.  Thankfully, technology today had allowed her to let me know once i found a place to receive Wi-Fi (stood outside the SAS lounge near customs in Copenhagen and found out why she was not already there.  This was more delays, and by the time i received the information and directions to our accommodation, rode the Metro to Kongons Nytorv, and found our Airbnb located above the Cafe Zalt on Kompagnistræde , our hostess had had to leave for a meeting, so, i hung out, dragging my suitcase around Copenhagen for all that time without knowing actually when or if Jessica would arrive that day!  Thankfully, the weather was decent and by evening we were finally together and ready to explore.  In just a couple of days, we have accomplished a lot!  Here are a few highlights
