Lovely Gardens

On July 5, 2013, we heard a knock on the door.  It was Room Service delivering our breakfast at 8:30 am.  Ivan and I had smoked salmon with toast, cereal and tea.  Lil Dave had a banana and he saved one for later.

Ivan, Lil Dave and I left the Carnival Legend ship at 9 am and we were in Copenhagen, Denmark.  We walked to the train station Osterport.  We took 3 stops and then got off at Vesterport.

Today, we were meeting up with our friend Joyanta and meeting his wife.  They were running late, so we found a café to use their free wi-fi in.  Ivan and I shared some tasty bread at Emmerys while we drank espresso and we used the internet.  I was so tired since we had to put our clocks forward and I didn’t get my 8 hours sleep.

Left the café at 10:40 pm and walked to the train station nearby.  It was good to see Joyanta and meet his wife Ayena.  She’s short like me, slightly taller.

Ivan wanted to check out Tivoli Gardens.  Jo has been before, but Ayena hasn’t.

We walked to Tivoli Gardens and bought tickets for the entrance only.  You can buy a ticket which includes the rides as well.

Tivoli Gardens is beautiful inside with lots of greenery and a few amusement rides.  Ivan and I talked to Joyanta and Ayena about married life and our trip.

Ayena is really sweet.

It’s great walking around to see all the lovely gardens and fountains.

I would love to see Tivoli Gardens at night since I’m sure it looks beautiful all lit up at night.

Ivan and Jo were silly and tried on a few different wigs from one of the stores.Ivan & Jo with their wigs on

Jo thought he made a pretty girl.  I disagreed and I think Ayena did as well.  I thought both of them made ugly girls and should definitely stick to being men.

I liked Dragon Boat Lake with the pagoda in the background.  You can rent a boat and drive around.

It looked like rain most of the time we were there.  It was trying hard to rain, but didn’t.  The sun came out at the end of our visit.

If you’re ever in Copenhagen, Tivoli Gardens is definitely worth visiting.

It was time to get some lunch.  Jo knew of a great Pakistani place nearby.

We had lunch at Kebabish.  We shared chicken jalfrezi, chicken methi, aloo palak, vegetarian biryani and dal.

The food was very tasty.

Ivan, Jo and Ayena and I walked to the station at 2:50 pm.  We said good-bye to Joyanta and Ayena.  It was great catching up with Jo and meeting his wife.  We had a great day with them that went by too fast.  I hope they come to Las Vegas to visit us soon.

Ivan and I went back to Osterport and then walked to the Carnival Legend.  There was a long queue (line) to get back on the ship since the deadline to board the boat was soon approaching.

Ivan and I were both so knackered (tired), so we took a 2 hour nap.

It was time for dinner with Tim, Gabbie, Ron and Lisa.  Ivan and I got mussels, pear and mozzarella salad, shrimp Thai soup and an ahi tuna salad with beet root to share.  The mussels were cooked too much and didn’t have much flavor.  The rest of the dishes were lovely.

We both got the eggplant moussaka for our main dish.  It was very Americanized and had way too much cheese on it.  It was good since we ate the vegetables and avoided the cheese.

Ivan got a fruit salad for dessert while I got lime and pineapple sherbet.  I thought the pineapple was okay, the lime sherbet was delicious.

Ivan and I went to the Punchliner Comedy club to see comedian Lance Montalto.  He was terrible, so we left after a few minutes.  We popped in to see the singer Siobhan Phillips who was even worse.  She looked like a man and Ivan thought she sounded like one too.

Later, we saw the comedian Michael Dean Ester.  Ivan and I were glad that he was funnier than the last guy.
