You know you're (back) in Denmark when... (Copenhagen airport)

You know you're (back) in Denmark when...

The Danish schools' half-term break is over and my 'wee' ones (Dear Son, 14 and Dear Daughter, 12) are back behind their desks - hooray! The weather here last week was dreadful (not even a case of "the wrong clothing") with long, dark days and rain, rain and more rain.  Yep, when my buddies and I were down winterbathing (i.e. skinny dipping in the Danish sea), I even kept my souwester on... ;)


Luckily we had booked a family trip to Paris and managed to escaped the rain in Copenhagen for a couple of days.  Why Paris?  Well, we're francophiles.  DDH (Dear Danish Husband) and I speak fluent French (we both worked at the EC Court of Justice in Luxembourg) and DS14 and DD12 are both learning French at school (the choice here is French or German).  But, as usual, I digress!

We flew home on Friday afternoon and - much as I love to be away - it's always nice to get back home.  As soon as we got to Baggage Reclaim the kids made a beeline for...


...the Lego blocks!  Too old for Lego?  Never!  Just don't tell their friends... :P


Meanwhile DDH and I "ooohed" and "aaahed" over the delicious smells coming from the pølsevogn (sausage wagon) right next to the baggage carrousel.  Home sweet home!  Must.  Resist.


On the way out of the Arrivals Hall there's a huge lightshow/poster that says "Welcome to the world's happiest nation.  That calls for a Carlsberg".  Ha!  The holy Danish trinity of Lego, hotdogs and beer! :)  Unfortunately, I was being pushed from all angles by (crazy Danes battling) baggage trolleys and couldn't stop to snap a pic...  So you'll have to do with this one - one of the baggage carrousels decked out by Carlsberg back in May 2012 for Euro2012.



It's good to be back.  Hope you have a marvelous Monday!

Diane :)
