rocked the boat

It was my first time on a cruise last weekend, and truth be told, I spent more time on board DFDS Pearl of Scandinavia than running around Copenhagen one cold, rainy Saturday. Neil and I dashed from one spot to another, trying to see as much (and camwhore as much) of the city.

We checked the shopping scene along the miles-long, car-free Strøget, the giant phalluses in the Erotica Museum, the Tivoli Gardens, the colorful houses and docked boats in Nyhavn, and of course, possibly one of Copenhagen’s icons – the Little Mermaid. I didn’t actually root myself deeply in the experience since the whole seven hours on land just whizzed by. It was just a whirlwind city sightseeing. The only time we ate in Copenhagen was at 11 am, at KFC. Later that day on our way back to the boat, we picked up some takeaway and surprise, surprise, a Filipina crew gave us free chicken pieces in addition to our order. So instead of five, I took home eight! Haha!

So that basically sums up my stay in Copenhagen.

But it was the boat trip that made this whole adventure worthwhile. Despite some heavy waves which lulled the ship crazy that I felt like throwing up and the small inside cabin with thin walls you could hear the party going on next door, it was a good cruise all in all. Thanks to a great company, I laughed a lot, drank a lot, danced a lot. It was so fun dancing with all these cute Scandinavian guys and this one Kylie Minogue-looking girl. It was like everyone knew each other. Boys dancing with girls. Girls dancing with girls. Boys dancing with boys. I don’t think those cute Scandinavian guys were gay at all, but they were grinding with us, communicating across the disco-lit room, and looking just ultra hot. Thank the heavens for beer!

Who would’ve thought that one day, I’d find myself in a packed dancefloor, in the middle of an open sea, crossing two countries? It was just fun.

    You really got the most out of your stay in Copenhagen clever man!
    I’ve lived there for 2 years and find it very nice and a bit more continental than Norway:-)
