Cheese Danishes and Swedish Meatballs


After a long night train we woke up in Copenhagen. We got reservations onto Oslo, Norway and then stored our bags and got a free map of the city.

We passed Tivoli (the second time this trip!) and then made our way to the Christianborg Palace. I was kind of palaced out and didn't want to take the tour. However, when we were looking for the admission information we found out you can tour the ruins UNDER the palace! Right down our alley! So we headed underground and got to see ruins of the old castles that were built on the site. We also got a peek into some of the palaces colorful history (2 fires!)

Then on the quest for food we walked along the Nyhavn district (way too pricey!) and had a snack before visiting a church. Then it was off to see the Little Mermaid and a nice walk through the park and another church visit. After peeking in tons of restaurants and everything WAY OUT OF OUR BUDGET we finally got a shrimp and egg sandwich at a grocery store.

We then walked trhough the king's gardens before heading back to the train station...for a trip to SWEDEN!

We hoped on a local train across the bridge to the Swedish city of Malmo. It was absolutely beautiful and very relaxing. We had a lot of fun seeing the Twisted Torso and just relaxing at the park near the beach. We then grabbed dinner at 7-11 of some swedish meatballs and mashed potatoes. One of our favorite meals of the trip! Then we made the way back to Copenhagen to pick up the bags before taking the train back to Malmo (this time it was delayed 30 mins) before we hopped on our night train to Oslo. This time with our own private 6 bed coachette, SCORE!
