After an early start and quick breakfast, we went to spend the day in Tivoli Gardens. The day started overcast and cloudy but quickly picked up. This may have put people off as for the first few hours the queues were tiny. In a little under 7 hours we went on nearly every ride (some multiple times), talked, ate, and rested. It was a great day out.
Afterwards we wandered the city and had burgers for dinner while listening to live jazz - formulating plans for tomorrow.

After a night in Plön we depart, we say goodbye to one of our companions. Then, it is on to the train for five hours as we travel to Copenhagen. It is a long journey and after watching the scenery dart past for a while we watch some TV. Halfway through the trip our train boards a car ferry. We disembark and explore the ship. Near land we re-embark and watch The Grand Budapest Hotel for the remainder of the Journey.
In Copenhagen we walk to the hostel, check in and set out to explore. A jazz festival is in town for our stay. We watch. The day finishes with pizza.

Taking a break from city visits we spend a day in Plön. After a short train ride we check in, and walk around the many lakes. Plön is a beautiful town in the middle of the German countryside. It is quite, and normally rather serene if not for the Harley Davidson festival. So many bikes.
After a good walk we head down to a local Indian restaurant and have our last meal as the three of us.
Using a special day pass, we spend the day visiting four different museums dotted across the city. Then, we enter a submarine. While it seems rather large, it is designed to fit eighty four people inside. That would be rather cramped.
Sorry about the delay, I had some really bad news recently and lost the desire to update this blog for a little while.
On our last day in Amsterdam we split and rent two bikes, cycling all of the way into Amsterdam. It takes us two hours, and afterwards we relax and cycle around the city. In the evening we meet up again for an evening meal. We take the train back.
