I am using this blog to tell everyone what I'm thinking and doing beforehand, during and after my exchange year in Finland for 2011.

Eurotour - Day 2

First on the agenda is Happy Birthday Nanna!
We had a early start this morning as we all had to be packed up and down at brekkie by 6! When we got off the boat it was straight into the bus. Stockholm was really beautiful, I wish we could have spent some more time there. Rotex ordered silence until 9 but I didn't do much! We stopped at a little lolly shop where you can see the lollies being made, like that store in Chadstone that I forget the name of, Sugar maybe? I bought some lollies and made a fool of myself by telling the lady kiitos when she was finished. Kiitos is thank you in Finnish and its such a habit now that my brain didn't say hang on a sec, you're in Sweden not Finland!!! Whoops! I did it again at lunch when I got my meal, what an idiot! 

We caught a ferry over into Denmark and soon we were in Copenhagen surrounded by bikes! There was so many bikes! We settled in to out hotel rooms and the whole group walked to Tivoli which is the 2nd oldest amusement park in the world! I bought a pass for all the rides because those that know me, know that I love a good theme park! The first ride we went on was the tallest carousel in the world. It took us up 80 metres and you could see the entire city, it was so incredible! I knew Denmark was an old city but when you see it all laid out in front of you like that you can really appreciate its colourful history. We went on lots of other rides including a freaky ride that spins you around in ways I didn't know possible! Once we'd had enough of the rides we went to find some food and got stuck in the rain so we took shelter in the first bar we could find. While we were there the TV was showing the highlights of a game of AFL. Yes you read that correctly, I watched the highlights of an Australian Football game in Denmark! That was very weird!

This ride was freaking scary, I'm on the left.

We survived!
