A free ticket to Copenhagen

Well I got my free ticket to Copenhagen after all. Tuesday October 7th I leave Oslo with Crown of Scandinavia with my sister as paying guest. Last Wednesday we booked our ticket and all that has been is now forgotten. We got our first class Seaways Cabin and a trip for NOK 348. I would like to thank DFDS for good customer service.

I have visited the Danish capital three times in 2008, making this my 4th trip to Copenhagen this year. This is however one of these short trips, leaving Oslo 5 PM, Tuesday arriving in Copenhagen Wednesday at 8 AM. After 9 hours in Copenhagen we will leave at 5 PM, arriving Oslo Thursday morning at 8.

This will be a time for a few good meals on board and a lunch on land - and shopping. My sister is planning some Christmas shopping, I will visit the food hall at Magasin Du Nord and Illums, and buying duty free wine and spirits on board.

And where to eat lunch in Copenhagen? There are several good places. I enjoyed delicious Danish open sandwiches at Skt Annæ, one with small prawns and one with plaice with remoulade. Wicked!!

Or Le Pavé at Gråbrødretorv. A small basement tavern with French inspired cuisine.

If you stay tuned to Enjoy Food & Travel you will see what choice I made. I look forward to a 48 hour escape from my daily routine.
