COPENHAGEN [1] - hkskyline's Euro 2007 Tour (Christianshavn)

Copenhagen came on my travel list after fellow Hong Kong forumers Rachmaninov and InitialD18 visited in 2006 and told me it was ... cold ... and nice.

I've finally finished processing 75% of the photos taken on the first day in Copenhagen. This is a daunting task, and I'm very busy travelling lately, so hope I can get through the whole set in due course.

As I visited in October, I expected rainy weather, as suggested by fellow forumers when I asked about Denmark. Hoping for the best, I boarded the plane on October 1 to see for myself.

1. Welcome to Copenhagen ... wait ... that's the bridge to Sweden.

2. I was greeted by an Air Greenland jet upon landing. You don't see that airline everyday in Asia, or even in North America as a matter of fact.

3. The weather was not so good on my first day. After dropping my bags off at the hostel, I ventured out to Christianshavn for a stroll. I was aiming to walk the whole thing, but in the end settled for a bit less. I shouldn't be so ambitious in my planning.

12. Peeking into some of these windows, I noticed how well-designed and stocked some of these homes are. Good design and Denmark go together, so it was expected.

14. I'm a balcony person. Balconies offer a good separation space between the home and the outside environment. I do enjoy the sea views from my balcony in Hong Kong as well.

16. I liked how these residential buildings are located at water's edge, which offers a good calming feature. Quite a nice thing to look out to water every day.

21. Watch your car.

22. This is probably the main canal on Christianshavn. The colourful houses and boats, along with the changing colours now and then, give a very serene scene. The cool autumn weather was much refreshing from the tropical heat I had to bear with in Asia.

36. I see an interesting church in the distance!

42. Subway rest stop. In the next part, I'll continue my walk on Christianshavn, with plenty more interesting houses and buildings.

What a lovely town
The beating of a million drums... The fire of a million guns... The mother of a million sons... CIVILIZATION.

I think Copenhagen is considered a city if not a metropol these days and not a town
