In April and May, My wife and I took a to Europe to visit our daughters who are both studying abroad. Julia was finishing her junior semester abroad in Copenhagen. Ellen is in Belgium for a few more months. We also visited Amsterdam and Paris.
We spent a 4-5 days in beautiful Copenhagen. We also got up to Louisiana to visit the contemporary art museum and Kronborg Castle. We met wonderful people, wandered the fragrant lanes of Christiania, and tried to get the Palace guards to smile at our silly tourist antics. Next up: Amsterdam.
