Day Two of the cruise saw us visiting Copenhagen and of course everyone wants to see the Little Mermaid and it is not as big as I imagined it to be.
The Little Mermaid was made famous in the story by Hans Christian Anderson. She meets the prince and falls in love and she asks to be made human so that she can marry him.
But the deal is that she loses her tail and her voice. and if the prince doesn't marry her she will become the white tops to the waves.
Well she finds her prince and of course without the tail he does not recognise her ... and without the voice she cannot tell him who she really is and he marries someone else
So fickle these princes and she poor girl ... becomes the white foam on the waves.
A really healthy way to go about your daily life
Our guide told us that there are big wind turbines in the harbour that create the electricity to power the lights and rides in this huge pleasure park
It was opened in 1843 and covers a huge area and is used for concerts and theatre shows as well as the rides and the gardens that are lit up at night.
Sorry Mr Carlsberg ... not a fan ... rather have a glass of red wine any day !!
These elephants are life size and very impressive as you drive through them.
This is another beautiful fountain and we saw many on out trip.
The sound of the water on a hot day is very refreshing and we sat and listened for a little while.
It was amazing to see that you are so close to them as you would never get that close to Buckingham Palace.
One lady got a little to close to the windows of the palace and the guard shouted "Hey" at her and gestured for her to get away ... which she did very quickly.
Each of the palaces is situated in this square and if they wish to go from one to the other then Royalty have to walk across the square to get there.
The staircase on the outside of the spire is there for you to walk up and many people are on the way up to the top.
So Day Three is a sea day and we have the chance to relax.
We are off to the Spa on board for a little pampering time for both of us.
More tomorrow ...
