Mary lives here - her inlaws have been here since 1794.
Another hot day in Copenhagen - close to thirty degrees. I forget how pleasant travelling in cooler climates is - no sweaty clothes!

City tours offer some advantages - they tick the box on the big sights, and they help you get a feel for the layout of the city. For instance I had no idea that Copenhagen had so much water - there are canals and islands everywhere.

On the list of sights seen:

Amalienborg palace (the royal palace complex where they live today)
Little mermaid
Rosenberg Palace and crown jewels
Black Diamond - national library
Operaen - opera house
Nyhavn - new harbour and the canals

There is so much more to Copenhagen but nowhere near enough time.
