After 12 hours of travel (with lots of standing still), we’ve arrived in Copenhagen, and are happily installed in the little apartment we’re renting until mid-June. We were up at 6:00 a.m. in Portugal, in a cab to the airport at 7:00 a.m., en route to London on Ryanair at 9:25 a.m. (on time departure; arrived 15 minutes early), had a 6 hour layover at London Stansted, and then took the 6:15 p.m. easyJet flight to Copenhagen, arriving here at 9:00 p.m. By the time we gathered our luggage, took the train downtown, and walked over here, it was nigh on 10:00 p.m.
Peter, our gracious host, gave us the lowdown on the apartment — which keys do what, how to unlock the bicycles, how to start the stove — most of which I’m sure we’ll have completely forgotten come morning. We’re right in the thick of urban Copenhagen, which is exactly what we wanted. And there are toys here, and a playground and rumours of excellent hot chocolate, so Oliver is happy too.
Lots more tales to tell, but exhaustion getting the better of me, so must sleep.
