Copenhagen, Denmark

Bikes, bikes, bikes!  Everyone rides a bike in Copenhagen.  I have never, ever seen any bikes in my entire life.  And everyone is so polite about how they ride throughout the city.  I was so impressed with the way that this city works and how happy everyone is!

We were so excited to check another international LDS temple off of our list!  It was closed for cleaning while we were there, but it was quite the sight from the outside.  I love this picture of Colton.

The Church of our Lady was our favorite part of the entire trip.  It was actually a highlight of my life!  We chose to go on the Sunday that we were there, which I think gave an extra spirit to the day.  I have seen so many Christus statues throughout my life, even the replica in the Salt Lake Temple Square Visitor’s Center.  But this one had a much more holy and sacred spirit.

Each of the 12 apostles is also depicted in a statue, with a specific representation of their work and personalities.

The Fredricksburg Castle was AMAZING! I loved the grounds and entrance to the castle, but the best part was seeing the entire original collection of Carl Bloch’s work of the life of Christ.

The Kronborg Castle was the inspiration for Shakespeare’s Hamlet.  I can see why!  We also loved being able to see Sweden from the grounds of the castle.

Nyhaven had the best food that we had had for all of our trip, and some of the best views!  We ate from the hot dog cart twice and tried just about every single dessert that was sold on that street.

The Little Mermaid!  It was POURING when we went, but I’m grateful because we were able to get a good picture!  Normally this place is packed full of people.
