Pictures From a Walk in Copenhagen

Just to show you a little of Copenhagen where I come from, the capital of Denmark. My husband and I live in another part of Denmark where there is not as much sunshine as in Copenhagen. We were lucky this past weekend to have mild and sunny weather during our visit to Copenhagen.
