Copenhagen and Malmo

Since I was traveling to various cities on this trip, I constantly checked the weather to make sure that I had the proper clothes.  While it would have been a great excuse to go shopping, I am paranoid and rather be prepared.  For weeks, the various weather apps were showing that the weather in Copenhagen would be in the low 70’s. Even after I arrived and I discovered that was clearly not true, the damn weather app insisted on sticking to it’s story.

I decided to take advantage of the beautiful day and take a boat tour. It’s about an hour and takes you around the various sights of Copenhagen. Including the local bathing spots, which are all clothing optional.

Copenhagen is a interesting mix of old and new. I would definitely go back and visit again, when it’s not as crowded. But be warned it’s on the pricey side.

Malmo, Sweden is quick train ride away from Copenhagen. It’s big claim to fame, this twisty building and this cool lighthouse

and what’s a trip to Sweden without a selfie?

Since there was no Hyatt in Copenhagen I stayed at the Hilton. It was located at the airport but the train to the City only took about 10 minutes.  I will say that outside of the United States, Hilton’s are pretty great, and this one was really nice. I was able to get check in when I arrived and was upgraded to executive floor, which gave me lounge access.  I like lounge access because it gets me out of my room, especially if I have to work. So after a hot afternoon of sightseeing, I would head back to the hotel, grab my laptop and head to the lounge to “work”.  It’s interesting to how different people behave in the lounge. Now I am not going to lie, I like to get my wine on, but never to the point where I am drinking all the liquor in the lounge.  One night there was a family of 5 having dinner. Then their cousins and grandparents joined in the action. It took 5 refills, before I was actually able to get something.

While the food was enjoyable,  I was not going to make dinner out of it. But I sure did enjoy getting my wine on………
