They Call It Autumn Winter-(part 2-Denmark)

...of apple trees and snowflakes.

Surprisingly, we didn't pass through the passport control in Copenhagen International Airport. Before we knew it, we were already in Denmark! Maricel's father and uncle, both based in Copenhagen fetched us from the airport. In only 5 minutes or so of drive, we reached her uncle's home and our "home for two nights"

Since we have a host family in Denmark, we felt very relaxed. There, we didn't have to carry a map, asked for directions nor plan where to go. We experienced "serviced de luxe"! Thanks to the Matunog Clan.

The front yard of the house was covered with snow. There were apple trees too! Since autumn had all the leaves gone, winter didn't keep us from seeing green apples hanging on the apple tree. Though the house was typically Danish outside, inside of it didn't hide the Filipino look.
While walking along this area, there was a man (some kinda beggar) playing violin that made the ambiance somewhat like you are in a sad-romantic movie....

------------------------------------------------------------The Tivoli Garden

Ever heard of Christmas Market in Europe? Though it was -3 degrees, we headed towards the Tivoli Garden and experienced our winter wonderland Christmas!Entrance to the Tivoli Garden was 12crooner each, rides are paid separately. Only Maricel and her cousin Mikey tried the rides though, as we thought it was too cold to manage.
Tivoli (in English also called Tivoli Gardens) is a famous amusement park and pleasure garden in Copenhagen, Denmark. The park opened on August 15, 1843 and, except for Dyrehavsbakken in nearby Klampenborg, it is the oldest amusement park in the world.
6 am, waiting for the bus to take us to the Copenhagen International Airport.
