If anyone thought they were reading one blog short when viewing Norm’s Thursday Doors during the past few weeks they weren’t imagining it. Don’t accuse Norm’s website of technical problems causing my blogs to be blocked or spammed to the black-hole in the internet; the truth is I took a 3 week family vacation trip and didn’t mention it to the dedicated Thursday Doors followers. We joined a tour that started in Denmark and ended in Russia and I found many doors to share in the coming weeks.
I’m going to sneak in with a simple post this week to get back into the swing of things. We started our vacation by flying to Copenhagen at the end of June and spent 3 days on our own before joining our tour. The flight was approximately 10 hours to get to Frankfurt, Germany with a 4 hour layover before boarding our connecting flight to Copenhagen (another 2 hour flight). It’s a good thing we had a long layover in Germany because that airport was huge and we walked a long time before finding our connecting gate.
Surprise; Denmark rained a lot during the summer; not surprising was they have the midnight sun hours because we spent time in Sweden during the summer several years ago so we expected the long daylight hours. Our rental unit was located in the Nyhavn Canal district which was very convenient to walk around to the sights of Copenhagen. We later learned from our local tour guide, when we joined our tour, that the Nyhavn Canal district was the Red Light District of Copenhagen in the old days. Today, it’s a cool hangout place with many restaurants and apartments and bicycle paths (you might think you’re in Amsterdam). Our apartment was located in a 4-story building on the top floor without an elevator so I got my daily cardio workout.
The neighbor on the second floor will grace the first door post for me this week; it was an image that begged to be photographed so I obliged.
Made me feel welcome immediately.
I have many more door photos to share but since I was dealing with some jet lag when we returned last week I’ll ease back into door blogging slowly and post an image from Denmark’s Constitutional Monarchy. This door is from the Chirstiansborg Palace.
I hope you had some great door blogs to read from Norm’s Thursday Doors website while I was absent; if you’re wondering what that is, it’s the portal of the creative genius, Norm Frampton, where he and other door
salesmen afficionados post door photos from around the world; go to the website and read Norm’s post for the week (or archived posts), click on the blue frog doorbell button and enter the magical connection to other door bloggers or join in and get addicted to searching for doors while family and friends start giving you that funny look when you see a door. Thanks for visiting my blog and thanks to Norm 2.0 for his creation of the Thursday Doors blog. For more blogs and photos of doors by others please go to: Thursday Doors.
