Our travels began at Charlotte Douglas International airport. Our friends arrived at our home early. We feared that we could possibly have an interruption as the democratic convention was in full swing in Charlotte. The day of our departure both the current president and past president were flying in. If the airspace was closed for an extended time we would miss our connection in Chicago which would take us into Copenhagen. All the stars were in alignment and our air travel was flawless. The flight was just over 8 hours from Chicago.
Arrival in Copenhagen found a large, busy airport. Suitcases were in baggage claim with surprising speed. Taxi's were readily available and we were on our way to the Marriott which was about a 20 minute ride. Our rooms were ready so we were able to drop off our luggage and freshen up then it was outdoors to explore the area. The day was cloudy and a bit overcast but temperatures were pleasant and a long walk along the waterfront was just what we needed after the plane ride. After dinner at a local restaurant and a walk back to the hotel we could no longer hold our eyes open, so it was an early night.
Friday morning we set our for another walk in the opposite direction and found some excellent shopping in the uptown area. Many street vendors offered all sorts of items for sale. We found a fresh fruit stand and I purchased a banana. Local pastries and strong coffee were also purchased along the way.
Good cabin, close to elevators. Little noise on a sailing that had less than 25 people under 18 years of age. Clean and well appointed. We had more drawer space than we could use.
