Jim and Elsie’s 1978 Tour – Day 63

Friday, 2 June 1978

360 miles to Copenhagen

Very warm in bus.

Slightly rolling countryside, timbered very neat farms and buildings. Excellent road. Misty across Lake Vättern. Lunch near Jonkoping. To ferry at 4.45. Drove on. Went upstairs, had a cup of tea and we were in Denmark. Boat passed the castle mentioned in Shakespeare’s Hamlet.

Hotel Dan – out of town (about 15 mins) but very close to the airport.









After tea went to the Tivoli Gardens – a sophisticated amusement park for all ages. Many trees and flower gardens, lakes, fountains, stages, large halls, open air stages for musicians. Lots of dancing and drinking places, Luna Park type rides, dodgem cars, big dipper (2), twirly wheels, display shops. Boats of the ports, restaurants, garden beds all colourfully lit and lots of people.
