Nordic Spring Day 1

11 May 2019 Saturday

Yes, it was Saturday….past midnight when we board our flight to Copenhagen. With a little wine to go with supper, I quickly dosed off.

It was probably morning Singapore time when I woke up… we were flying over some coastal area in Middle East. Look very impressive !

As the aircraft glided below the cloud…this windmill farm standing at the center of wide ocean…. awesome constructions.

Then it is the famous Oresund bridge that linked Denmark to Sweden.

We touched down around 0630 hrs … clearance is a little difficult and it was well after 0800 hrs that we finally exit the airport. Look like the airport authority knew about the slow clearance….

We took a train ride to Sweden. Traveling on Oresund bridge… while the bridge is an engineering marvel, there isn’t much to see while traveling on it !

The hotel staff were very accommodating. They have empty room and they had us checked in very early.

Very spacious and clean room.

We had some good rest and revitalized. Looking out of the hotel…I always associate this kind of architecture to fairy tales of Hans Andersen era.
