Polar Bear Hunt 2015 - Day 22
Stockholm to Copenhagen
The high speed train from Stockholm to Copenhagen departed at 8.13am. We passed through rolling fields of grain and other crops and even saw a few cows. On arrival in Copenhagen we walked the few blocks to the hotel, found we were too early for our room, so walked down to the harbour to find the Stomma Boats tour of the canals.
The train to Copenhagen
We had booked a pair of window seats on the train to Copenhagen and they came with breakfast! The food was a picnic box of assorted ingredients including yoghurt, fruit, a bread roll, a tomato and slices of cheese, a hardboiled egg, a wholegrain cracker and a tube of something that could have been mayonnaise. The woman sitting next to us tried to explain the contents of the tube but her English was limited. She got as far as "fishy" and "only Swedes like it". At that we left it alone...
Copenhagen by tourist boat
All of the major capital cities we visited in Scandanavia are built around water, and each has boat tours so you ca see the city from the water. Some specialise in canals and some highlight all the bridges. Copenhagen has the "Grand Tour". We deposited our luggage at the hotel - The First Hotel Mayfair - and walked the few blocks to the waterfront to find the tours. Soon we were on one of the broad, flat-topped boats winding our way along canals and the harbour, passing buildings of many differenet architectural styles including the old naval base.
