The "Great" Danes

Copenhagen or Kobenhavn as they call it here marks the first stop on my Scandinavia Tour! The 7 hour time difference from Chicago left me rather jet-lagged upon arrival yesterday afternoon, but I rallied and went walking about town to get my bearings.

First stop was, of course, Heaven...Ok, not literally, but the hostel I reserved is perhaps not so fittingly named "Sleep-in-Heaven". I have a locker and a 6 bed room the size of my tiny Chicago one. Guess I
won't ever be complaining anymore ;) The spot is complete with a big communal area with a pool table, 2 computers and coed bathrooms...that's a whole other story. Pics will be provided at a later date. Although it's not Heaven, i did sleep well due to an eyemask and earplugs!

Next I visited the Round Tower for a 360 view of the city. Met some more Texans there! It was interesting and fun to be by myself, and lots of good people watching...the Danes don't exactly have good fashion...

Met some great people already and am about to head out to tackle the sights with a Canadian from Vancouver named Gavin!
