Today we spent most time just walking around. Our first stop was the botanical garden where we enjoyed some early spring flowers but no sun. Mostly it’s been cloudy today. Right across the street from the botanical garden you can see Rosenborg castle. We went there and bougt our tickets. Had a nice experience walking through the old castle, enjoying the throne room, the kings bedroom and the tea room.
On our way out we found ourself locked in inside the castle. The security guards would not let us out. “Why?” I cried silently. Then I recalled hearing some kind of alarm go off and I also realize that I did not have full visuals of Sofia, who is a notorious “poker”, she just have to touch everything that has the sign: Do not touch! attatched to it. “What have you done?!?!” I thought. The beefy looking guard at the door told us that the alarm had gone off in the cellar, so obviously Sofia was not to blame. This time.
After approxematly 15 minutes they let us out, order was restored and nothing was missing from the treassury in the cellar, which happened to be our next stop. Sofia promised to not touch anything inside, which she actually also did not do. I must say that noone got bling as a king, except for another king with bling. Bling king. After having seen gold and diamonds for millions we took a paus with some coffee before we continued our walk through town.
We visited a church, but after having seen the churches in Kiev no church really feels like a church anymore. They obviously got “churchier” churches in Kiev. Strøget offered what every good shopping street should have, shops, more shops and every now and then a bar for resting your feets and refreshing your mind with some healthy, tasty, beautifully golden beer. We also stumbled upon Lilly, a bridal shop. After 1 hour I had to drag Sofia out of there.
We also had a plate of nachos in a restaurant, re-enacting memories from our first date. Speaking of that, our first date was tomorrow but a year ago.
