Barcelona and Vienna 2015

The Cat sabotaged my trip. In the dark of the night a glass of water was dropped on my money belt and passport. I dried out my money belt in the oven. A half hour later two doppelganger porters loaded my bags, and I was on a bus to the airport. The trip has been much anticipated and much worried abo...

Re: Copenhagen 2017

Christiania- Day 5 Christiania is a self proclaimed autonomous neighborhood with about 850 people living there, to paraphrase Wikipedia. It is located in the city of Copenhagen. Originally it was a squatters villiage, and before that it was a military base. Marijuana can be bought openly there on a ...

Re: Copenhagen 2017

Copenhagen, day 4 Today I went to Helsinore, site of Hamlet. Its primary purpose was to collect taxes from passing ships. If a ship tried to pass then the castle would open fire. This lasted until the middle of the 19th century when an American ship failed to stop, and the danes realized they didn’t...

Copenhagen- Day 1 The flight to Copenhagen was smooth as it could be, departing at 7:00 in the morning.

For months I've been counting down the minutes.

That is the key for you, Bogart. In 2017 Keukenhof is open until May 21. The peak displays will be over but even in the final days of the season, it is still very enjoyable. Go there first available day.

That sounds like a go.
