Early on Monday morning, I left Bonn and drove to Copenhagen to visit @katharsisdrill and his family.
The trip included crossing the sea on a ferry boat for 45 minutes.

I arrived at their place around 4:30PM. I met @katharsisdrill himself, his wife Mette (@mette.saabye), and their two daugthers Felicia (@scarlet-rain) and Frida.

On Tuesday, I walked to the center of the city of Copenhagen.

I crossed The Lakes on one of the bridges.

In Bonn, there were people on bicycles, but in Copenhagen, there are many more.

After walking for an hour, I finally reached my destination: the shop/workshop of Mette who is a goldsmith.

Mette was kind enough to show me her workshop, starting with the basement.

In the basement there are several machines that she seldom uses, including this one to cut stones.

In the workshop, that is just behind the store itself, there are several other machines.

Here Mette is melting silver to make small rods for one of her project.

Mette is on Steemit as @mette.saabye, but she has not started to blog yet. In my opinion, and @katharsisdrill agrees with me, she has plenty of stories to tell and she should start to blog soon.

After leaving Mette's shop, I wanted to visit the National Museum, but I was rather late as the museum closes at 5PM. So, I decided to go there on Wednesday.

Not far from the National Museum, I saw the Danish Parliament.

On my way back to the apartment, I saw many people biking.

On Thursday morning, @katharsisdrill brought me to the National Museum in his christiania bike.
Don't you think I look cute in it?

We visited part of the museum, mostly the prehistoric part. I did not take many pictures.

Today, Thursday, in the afternoon, we are going to visit @katharsisdrill's brother @evilhippie. I am very interested to see how he makes knifes and swords, and how he uses his 3D printer. Stay tuned.

The translator meets the translated :-) What a fun look at Copenhagen and a chance to see @katharsisdrill at work. I agree that Mette should share here on Steemit. In anticipation I am now her first official follower.

Yes, you are, and I am her second follower.

I was waiting for that post and it exceeded my expectations. Thanks for sharing all the pictures and insights of @katharsisdrill's Copenhagen. Pretty much enjoyed it :-)

That looks like a very intersting trip you went on, you look great in the little carriage lol must feel like a baby in a stroller

Yet another great installment of your adventures abroad. I think one of my favourite things about this trip of yours is that I am meeting steemians that I didn't know about previously. You are giving so much reading and exploring to do myself. That picture of the coloured houses on the Copenhagen waterfront looks like it could be a shot of Lunenburg, Nova Scotia.

This is wonderful travel photography you share & thanks a lot to share this content with us.

Old & modern combination.. & healthy people with bicycle..

Wow!!
Very amazing place.and many history of that place with very interest place and wonderful natural

'The trip included crossing the sea on a ferry boat for 45 minutes'
It must have been the ferry boat Puttgarden-Rødby. I was on that last sunday night, but coming from Sweden.
Nice pics btw.
