Sorry for the delay of this blog about daddy’s birthday trip to Copenhagen, but the last few weeks were a bit chaotic. But yeah, the start of this trip was also a bit chaotic, so now we are 1-1 haha…
We (my sister, brother and me) surprised my dad with his 60th birthday present one and a half week before we went to Copenhagen. We had planned to fly on Tuesday morning at 9:45 on the first of May, yeah you read that well “had planned”. Our flight got canceled at Schiphol while boarding and the only flight which we were able to catch together was the flight from Wednesday evening nine o’clock. Therefore, in the end, we decided to go by car, because otherwise, we would have lost too much time because we were only there until Friday.
Finally in Copenhagen
After 9,5 hours of driving, we finally arrived in Copenhagen. We slept in the Ascot hotel, which is in the middle of the center and therefore it is easy to walk around in the city. We had so much luck with the great weather those days.
On Wednesday morning we had a private bike tour with Baja Bikes. This was the third time we booked the bike tour with Baja Bikes, every time the tour was very interesting and the guides were so nice! This tour was also around three hours, and although it did not feel like that, we saw a lot of different parts of the city. The name of our tour guide was Jesse, he has been living in Copenhagen for already over years and could, therefore, give us some really nice inside information and funny facts. The rest of the day we went for some shopping and walked a bit more around in the city.
Theme park Tivoli in the middle of Copenhagen
The thing we for sure liked the most about the trip was Tivoli. For the people who do not know what Tivoli is, I will explain it.
So, Tivoli is a theme park in the middle of Copenhagen. Yes, in the middle of the city.. and the reason for that is because the theme park was there much earlier than the city itself. Tivoli is the second oldest theme park in the world, established in 1843. However, this is not the only reason why the theme park is so attractive because there is one attraction which is even the oldest attraction in the world. Every new round, there is a “driver” coming with us managing the speed and the curves. Every time, we were amazed and started thinking about how it would be to have a job like this. The opinions will probably differ, but we loved to go into that attraction. Without those men, it would not be possible anymore.
During the evening, after sunset, all the lights in the park went on and everything became kind of romantic. You would not expect it, but the park is still a bit big. They even have China Town!
Conclusion, when you are going to Copenhagen, visit Tivoli. You will train your abs by laughing out loud, just like we did.
Daddy is happy
As you know, was this trip all for daddy. Therefore, I asked him a couple of times; “Do you like it?” “Are you happy?” and then he always answered: “If my kids are happy and enjoying, I am happy too. Oh, I love this man.
We will not be going on trips together like this very often after this one but, this summer we will be going to South-Africa, me already making jokes about how we are going to handle being together 24/7 for three weeks long…
And after that, I will trade my hometown for a five and a half month stay in Chile!
