Copenhagen 03-02 Copenhagen 03-08Copenhagen 03-10Copenhagen 03-06Copenhagen 03-01

These were from our day spent at Fredriksborg Castle (back in June!). We caught a train to Hillerod and spent the day exploring the castle, the grounds and admiring all the beautiful artwork...especially the paintings of Christ by Carl Bloch. So gorgeous!

Other highlights from the day:

- Lost my purse...and a sweet lady found it for me.
- I got a crazy case of the hiccups in one of the exhibit rooms...they echoed really loudly. Embarrassing.
- Spent way too much time exploring inside the rhododendron bushes. We just love those things.
- Have I mentioned how much I loved Copenhagen?

Thanks again Brittany and Paul for the recommendation! We loved it!

  1. I remember going to Frederiksborg Castle once with my parents and staying in the car the whole time because we had a fight and I was a bratty teenager. I regret that now; it's beautiful - luckily it's not too far away ;-)

  13. Your photographs are so lovely! Fredericksborg Castle is so so lovely. I am in awe of the details and how meticulously everything was handcrafted. I have loved your Copenhagen posts - I spent two years living in CPH while I was in high school, and I have so many memories from this beautiful city. I'm planning a trip back next year with my husband!

  19. Your photos are BEAUTIFUL. You've actually inspired me to go home and pick up my DSLR. It seems that having a camera on my iPhone [yay VSCO!] has made me lazy. Which is maybe more embarrasing than your hiccups!
