Copenhagen (Day)

I flew directly from Trondheim to Copenhagen, my first flight after a lot of trains. I think my taxi from the hotel to the airport cost more than the flight, the flight wasn’t cheap, but the taxi was exorbitant.

Some weigh over a kilogram, some fit in a pocket.

After breakfast I walked to the local train station and got a metro a couple of stops towards Central Station where I bought a regional ticket to Uppsala. If I had planned slightly better I might have used my Eurail Pass for the day trip, and bought a single ticket for another leg of my journey.
