Just back

Yesterday saw me return from a brief visit to Copenhagen. It was my fourth visit to Denmark although my first since 1994. It was lovely to be back. As ever the Tojhus museum was fascinating-
Excellent maritime dioramas as above and fascinating full sized exhibits as below-
 I was  very moved by an exhibition entitled "The distant War" about the Danish army's experiences in Afghanistan. I will post pictures next time of it.


  1. Glad that you enjoyed your visit! Copenhagen is a fun and fascinating city. Spent some time there in the mid-80s and again during the early 90s myself.

    Best Regards,


  2. HMS Africa, got lost the day before Trafalgar but still made it to the fight.

  3. I was in Copenhagen in 2000 for a couple long layovers (8 hours) on a Seattle-Edinburgh/Edinburgh-Seattle trip. I managed a nice long visit to the national museum, lunch at Hard Rock Cafe, Tivoli, and some other sightseeing. I can see the allure in going back.

  4. Sounds like a great visit.... I would love to get to Denmark one day.
