Train to Copenhagen
Transit at Malmo station.
Found an accommodation to be considered, after an hour. Seemed rather scarce, places to stay for backpackers.
S$ 1 — Danish Krone = DKK 3.58
Hotel Jørgensen was more of a hostel/economy hotel.
We thought it was rather dinghy at first, when shown to the dorm in the basement. Dim winding corridors; exposed pipings; unfinished walls. The communal shower setting was reminiscent of Schindler’s List. *Shudder* As the hotel was closed between 11 am and 3 pm for cleaning, you couldn’t leave anything behind so you always had to leave your packs in a designated locker area. Multiple trips to the lockers in the basement. But we went to the shared shower cubicle upstairs rather than the dungeon communal.
We were lucky (or unlucky) to have gotten bunks in a family quadruple (shared), but had to move into a dorm the next day. But they did provide very good breakfast, inclusive.
We did try to recce for better alternatives but choices were slim and we gave up the hunt, so we stayed put.
Bed : 130 DKK / SGD 36.31
Family quadruple room, shared.
Moved to dorm quarters the next day.
Our 5-bed dorm quarters.
Hot drinks dispenser :) I always looked forward to this after every cold day.
At 10º today
We took to the streets. An interesting day as we were constantly bombarded with rain, gusts and bursts of sunshine. Made for some dramatic shots.
Størget, said to be the world’s longest pedestrian street mall. Our favourite Chinese takeout was around there. *Happiness* Tasty, hot and cheap(er), though salt intake could be a concern.
As this journey was mine.
We thought we could solicit for some freelance work for a lark, but even so, pimping ourselves was too much work.
And thus began our ritual of Chinese takeout dinner from China Restaurant Cafe. We ducked in and out of the rain as we chomped hungrily at our box of oily comfort food. At DKK 25 / SGD 6.98, you couldn’t do any better than that!
