nothing like a mid-summer's bojourn to europe to spice things up and provide lady bojon with her first taste of life outside the u.s.
our first stop: copenhagen, a glorious spot that has a convivial and approachable atmosphere despite being the capital and the largest city in denmark.
we quickly acclamated ourselves to the cobblestone streets and did a bunch of stroll(er)ing along the "Strøget," a hugh pedestrian-only street that is lined with shops, cafes, and steet performers.
great people-watching in copenhagen, with a plethora of blond-haired, blue-eyed bombshells who would rock indiana but are a dime a dozen in scandinavia.
we even ran across chris kringle. old saint nick was milling around the train station getting some coffee one day as we were exchanging some money. always wondered what the jolly one was up to in the off-season.
and lots of watering holes with big beers that locals embrace at all times, including breakfast. carlsberg rules the taps in denmark and is widely known as "probably the best beer in town."
tivoli gardens kept us well-entertained for a day, as we caught a few rides and checked out a few shows.
the place is especially spectacular when it is lit up at night.
next stop: sweden...
