Denmark - Copenhagen - 2.6.1970

From my Notes:

Visit Royal Copenhagen Porcelain Factory, 45 Smallegade 10am, very interesting and a good guide.  I have to catch buses back to Youth Hostel to book in because I couldn't do it in the morning cause all the rooms were booked, but we did get in.*  Back to Smallegade to Dave, walk through park near Zoo, go to Irma for lunch. At 2:30pm to Carlsburg are shown around and given a couple of bottles of beer each to drink there, very nice, walk back to Youth Hostel and flake out for a while, shower have dinner and sit and read.

* You weren't allowed to stay for more than two nights in a row at Youth Hostels, I think, so we had to check out then book in again after midday.

 Of course we didn't have any money to buy any of the beautiful Danish Porcelain but after we got home and had our first child Nerys, born in 1971, my parents lovely neighbour, Jean Adam bought the 1971 Christmas Plate she bought one when Tomos was born in 1973 but Miss Adam had moved to Adelaide when Briony 1976, and Gwilym 1980 were born so I bought one for each of them.

Walk in Frederiksberg Garden, Copenhagen.
