Time to head home
25 September 2016
Plus I thought the description of a "Miami Benedict" was interesting and not particularly "Miami" to me.

Time to head home, but here is a picture of the hotel in Copenhagen.
A walk through Copenhagen
Hans Christian Anderson's Little Mermaid (sculpted by Edward Eriksen).
Disney is currently in talks with Copenhagen to place a statue of Ariel next to the Little Mermaid.
I'm not sure if it's cause or effect, but people don't tip in Europe because the service sucks! Consistently, at every place I've been I feel like they tolerate my patronage and can't be bothered to do any more than the absolute minimum.

Tivoli Gardens at Night

Ben Harper in Copenhagen
21 September 2016
Surprisingly, I could not find any Swedish Fish in Sweden (the candy type, found lots of the fishy type)
Drove back into Denmark this evening. Interestingly, going into Sweden as I came off the Bridge there were officials checking passports and what appeared to be random car checks. Going into Denmark... No sign of any type of border control.
What's a visit to Sweden if you don't make a pilgrimage to the Mother Ship
Swedish Farewell Dinner at the most well known Swedish restaurant in the world
McFeast, Chili Cheese Tops, & a Coke Zero
The world famous Kasewood sign
Ales Stenar or Ale's Stones - a Nordic Stonehenge but you can walk right up and touch them. Constructed around 500 CE as a "Stone Ship" and it lines up with the important solar events (Winter/Summer Solstice, etc)
Hiking the Swedish countryside. Their "Right to Public Access" means you can pretty much go anywhere as long as you don't interfere or leave a mess.
Wallander walking tour of Ystad.
20 September 2016
Took the scenic route to Ystad. Great views of the Baltic Sea but I couldn't take pictures as I was driving (and not a lot of places to pull over)
Nothing says Sweden to me like a Steak & Béarnaise Pizza!
Yes I'm being serious, I had my first (and the only one I've ever found) when I was in Sweden for McDonalds back in 2000.
What does this mean?
(The other side is always the same picture but without the red line through it)
--I figured it out. These marked the end of a pedestrian only street (the other side marked the beginning) - basically saying be careful there are cars again. I saw the same design as I was entering or leaving the city (Malmö with a red slash through the name - means you are leaving Malmö)
Surf Shack - a Swedish take on the Shake Shack with a surf theme.
Teknikens och Söfartens hus (Science & Maritime House).
Mostly looked at the Science but definitely cool
Submarine, you get to crawl all through it. Incredibly tight & I can only imagine how claustrophobic it would be when it had its full crew (26) and was 100 m underwater.
Had a Cappuccino with Tony
St. Petri kyrka
Yeah it's a 700 year old church. it's Europe, if it's not 1000 years old, it's NBD.
My very small, but quite functional room in Malmö
19 September 2016
Dinner at Mando's Steakhouse
I was just talking with someone about this (I felt like it needed to protect your face). I saw a surprising number of people wearing this (un-inflated of course) considering they are 300€.
The day in Malmö
The famous Turning Torso Building. I could see it from everywhere, but it certainly took a lot of time to walk to it.
At O'Hare waiting for the flight to board. Checking my bag & security went very smoothly so I have quite a bit of time to kill.
