On the way to Copenhagen

Early in the morning we got into the tourbus for a drive of 750 km to Copenhagen.

We had a short stop in the city Groningen in the north of our country, to pick up some more passengers. This is a view at the magnificent Groninger Museum built by architect Alessandro Mendini.

Everything went well until we got stuck in a giant traffic jam near Bremen and Hamburg in Germany. It took us two hours of delay.

Driving through Germany on our way to the ferry from Puttgarden to Rodby, Danmark.

Even the train got on the ferry with its own tracks.

SC on the way to Danmark.

We met the ferry going the other way around.

At lot of wind turbines in sea.

There were enough strong winds, I got a whole new hairstyle.

Here we are in Danmark, still 170 km to go to Copenhagen.

After a 13,5 hour drive we finally arrived at our hotel in Copenhagen, a design by Danish architects "3XN".

At 10 o'clock in the evening we had at last our diner which was delicious.

  13. Dat was een lange en vermoeiende dag. Hopelijk hadden jullie een heerlijk bed om weer goed uitgerust de stad te verkennen.

  14. Dearest Marianne,
    Oh, you had me laugh out loud with your remark about your whole new hairdo!
    But what a luxury in fact, minus the mishap of a traffic jam that took 2 hours. Didn't know they had roll on trains getting on the ferry. We both learned something from you; thanks for sharing.
