Thank you for your help. Jstduckey - from reading your posts it seems like you packed alot into everyday. Was it a stretch to do all you did it Stockholm and Copenhagen.?
hm... yes and no.
personally for me, I don't think that it was a stretch. but I am of the mentality that I want to see and do as much as possible in the time that is allotted. i dont know if I will ever go back to any of these places again and I dont want to regret not doing things. so as a result, i come home from vacations way more tired than when i left because i am always on the go and don't sleep much (hence waking up every day at like 3 or 4 am to watch the sunrise). having said that, vacations aren't a time for me to kick back and relax.
so knowing that.. doing eveything i did, it wasn't hard.
copenhagen was easier as i arrived at CPH at 7:30 am .... went straight to the hotel, took a shower, and was out the door again at 9:00 am. was out all day long, only stopping back at the hotel in the afternoon for about 30 minutes. didn't come back at night until after 11:00 pm. the next morning, i was out the front door by 7:00 am and came back again at 1:00 pm, took the taxi to the pier and boarded the ship.
in stockholm, we were there from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. stockholm wasn't as complete as i had wanted it to be, more due the rain than anything. i had planned to go to city hall at 2:00 pm and take the guided tour, then climb the tour from 3:00-3:30. instead, we stayed on gamla stan instead. so in place of city hall, we went to the stockholm cathedral and then added the guided tour of the royal apartment. even with all that we did, i probably spent about 1.5 hours wandering and shopping around gamla stan
