number 36...

first, let me express my outrage, disappointment, and - above all - hurt feelings, at the fact that i have lost a follower. did you think i wouldn't notice? i only had 23 followers, of course i noticed! i just lost almost 5% of my following! why? why did you leave me?? just because i don't blog regularly? just because my entries are boring? just because the pointless drivel i do post is presented in an aesthetically dry and bland fashion? that's it??? i never thought you'd abandon me like this, not you! ok, so i don't know exactly who the deserter is, but that doesn't make it any less devastating. oh well, their loss, now they miss out on my exciting news.

i'm going to Denmark! it was a very spontaneous decision after seeing a fantastic price on a flight to Copenhagen. $450 return after taxes and everything! woohoo!! i can't even get to vancouver for that cheap! unfortunately, it's a super short trip, but that was all that was available. we were thinking of booking july 3 - 17, but as i was online looking at it, it sold out! so we're going july 10 - 17, the only option. i had never considered a trip to Denmark, so i know nothing about it. Ok, not quite true. I've heard of Tivoli Gardens, and i know there's a statue of the Little Mermaid, the Carlsberg brewery, and of course Legoland. And if i believe the stereotype, everyone is blond. and a viking.

Also, since looking online at accommodation, i've learned that although the flight may have been cheap, the rest of our visit will most certainly NOT be. But who cares! I get to dust off my passport, see new things, and make Denmark the 36th country I'll have the privilege of traveling to. yahoo!!

if anyone has any recommendations or suggestions, please share!

Denmark is a fantastic place! The Little Mermaid statue is neat, in a touristy kind of way. The brewery is fantastic. But, since we went in December, Tivoli Gardens was pretty a bust. And, yes, I had a few beers there. OK, a little more than a few. SIGH...a lot more.
But, it's still a great place. Which serves Danish.
And just hold your horses there, pardner. I'M the one who writes pointless drivel, not you!

But I decided to fill the ranks, and became a follower (officially that is, seeing as I usually read your posts when they show up on facebook).

Uh-oh. That is supposed to say "Jennie said..." not "Shabi said..." Dunno what happened. Oops.

wow $450 to denmark! how did you find that?

manders said...

it's through Iceland Express. it was advertised on YWG Deals (a website just for travel deals from winnipeg) and also Travel Zoo. what a steal, eh!

Aafrica said...

i'll have to check that out. but since i don't live in winnipeg that could be a problem ...

btw, you may have lost the number 23 again, but how's 24 sound? love your stories :)
