Day One: Copenhagen

After an uneventful nine hour, non-stop flight from Seattle to Copenhagen, we met my sister Debby at the baggage pickup area. Suzy and I flew economy which means that my knees were lodged tightly under my chin. Being 6′ 4" has its disadvantages. The Princess Cruise line rep had already found Suzy and took us to a shuttle to the Radisson SAS hotel.

The traffic lights are weird and we were reminded of that on the way to the airport. From a red light you get a yellow warning that the green light is coming. I suspect it was designed for people with manual transmissions.

We were so tired, indeed Debby who is unable to sleep in a plane, was up for 24 hours straight. So we crashed for two hours. Then we went up to the penthouse restaurant on the 25 floor and enjoyed a 2.5 dinner, with wine and four course meals. The fabulous view was only exceeded by the quality of the food and drink.

It is approaching 9:30 PM and we all still up jabbering. We have to lay out our clothing for tomorrow and then the staff can pick up our bags tonight before we crash. Tomorrow we’ll have four hours to sightsee and then load the bus to go to the boat.

    Sounds like fun. Loved the pictures of my beautiful children. I fed the pussys. Scooped one box but Maisie jumped in the other box and was seemingly staying so I gave up and will get it hopefully tomorrow. I’ll start with that one. I watered the plants. It was 90 yesterday and today, so I figured they needed it. Got my CPAP today. Yeah!! Have fun and that’s an order.
