off the beaten path

1-denmark4

we arrived in copenhagen early in the morning and had all day to explore before we embarked on a cruise the following day.  i joined friends for a private tour of dragor havn, an isolated fishing village twelve kilometers away from the city.  rich in danish history, this old little town off the beaten path is so pretty.  the harbor, laid-back and serene, were fishing and pleasure boats, sitting idly that day.

on the waterfront lined small shops, art galleries as well as markets and outdoor cafes.  from afar was a glimpse of the oresund bridge, a combined rail and motorway bridge that connects copenhagen and malmo, an upcoming vibrant swedish city.

picturesque yellow-painted houses with red roofs, some thatched, are tucked in a maze of narrow cobblestone streets festooned with summer blooms.  quite a number of houses are hundred years old so charming and pretty.

    I always wanted to see Copenhagen, LolaWi! When our son was small we took him to Legoland at Billund and that’s as close as we got. One day! 🙂 🙂 So glad you had a lovely time.
