The photo above is rather apt, as it sums up my sad and unfortunate relationship with cameras. I think I have either dropped, broken, drowned, lost, or had stolen every camera I have ever owned. Partly due to the fact that I think I am kind of a careless person (bleh), and partly because I treat my camera like a total workhorse. I drag it around with me allll the time, whipping it out at every opportunity and it just gets really banged up with so much use. With this camera, I STUPIDLY forgot to bring it with me to Copenhagen! Thus, almost all the Copenhagen-related posts I’ll be making in the next few days are using my iPhone5 camera.. which isn’t really that good especially with low-lighting and trying to capture fast-moving kids. Chris brought the camera with him a couple of days later when he flew up to Copenhagen to meet us… and I used it for ONE day before I dropped it, and now it won’t turn on because the lens is jammed *facepalm* So now I have to get it repaired and hope that A) it’s fixable, and B) they won’t charge me a fortune to do so. ANYWAY. The kids had a blast in Copenhagen because of how kid-friendly it is. They got over jetlag very quickly and slept pretty well. I, on the other hand, survived on very little sleep because Carter’s cot was next to my bed and I wake up with every snuffle and squiggle he makes.. and would take ages to fall back asleep again. They also didn’t fare that well in the closed confines of the apartment that we were in, and would antagonise each other and squabble over every. single. thing. It meant that we would just try and get out of the place ASAP each morning, to minimize fighting and also because once they were outdoors, they had a great time!
So yes, the playgrounds. There are lots of parks and playgrounds all over Copenhagen, with lots of kids running around and enjoying themselves. It’s clean, well-kept, and lots of fun! This one below (I’ve forgotten the name, whoops!) was a kiddie paradise. It was large with tons of stuff for big kids and little kids! Though, admittedly, I think Carter actually had more fun since he’s a bit of a roughnut and Hunter is way more cautious and pretty much did…. ermm… nothing!
