Day trip to Malmo

Determined to tick Sweden off my "been to" list I was brave and planned to catch the commuter bus from Copenhagen to Malmo on the last day of our trip.

Despite a mini panic about finding the bus stop, we got there and all went according to plan. We did it - we went to Sweden!

I made sure to get the bus rather than the train so we could cross the Oresund Bridge (The Bridge from 'The Bridge'), which made this 'Nordic Noir' fan very excited. The bridge actually disappears into the sea and goes under it, so it's a bit unusual.

I thoroughly enjoyed going through customs and having the sniffer dog come on the bus.

There it is.

The bridge! Viewed from a dirty back window

Lilla Torg


They really make an effort with their floral displays in Scandinavia. Even the plainist. everyday squares have gorge flowers.


Interesting details in Copenhagen

This is where we lived!

Saw quite a few of these branches growing up and across buildings. They probably have leaves and flowers in Spring, which I think would spoil them.

Looks kind of medieval.

Went to the top of this, Rundetaarn.


That's them hyacinths again
The best map in the world. I feel like framing it.

Just a normal street with some Egyptian handrails. No biggie.

Chickens have heads here.



Massive 'gargoyles' on Borgen.

Copenhagen - April 2016

Just a back street, but probably one of the only truly representative photos I got.

Nyhavn, which was totally ruined by being so busy. I genuinely thought I would be one of only a few tourists. Doh.

The smell from these hyacinths in Tivoli gardens was overwhelming

Just a peacock wandering around Tivoli, no biggie.

Tivoli, a magical wonderland of a fairground

Don't worry, I've taken close ups of all parts of this room to copy in my own home

Really pleased with this picture. I didn't think of it myself, I copied a Chinese girl who was doing it
