We had the pleasure of staying along the Nyhavn Canal in Copenhagen. Nyhavn means new harbor, only this harbor is centuries old and knew the likes of Hans Christian Anderson (1805-1875). Once upon a time he lived at various times in three houses along the canal. He wrote many of his fairy tales here, just a few doors down from our hotel. The canal at 9 a.m. is a beautiful place, with the morning light setting the mood as it struggles to break through thick clouds.
