Qajaqs in Copenhagen, classes in Denmark

After leaving the West Coast Water Festival in Sweden, Mark and I made our way to Copenhagen. Copenhagen is a wonderful city and one of our favorites, so we spent a couple of days there between classes. Among the places we visited were The Natural History Museum and Tivoli Gardens. The Natural History Museum has a wonderful and extensive traditional qajaq display. No matter how many times we visit it, we always learn something new. Tivoli Gardens is good fun, and we spent an afternoon riding the roller coasters and playing in the fun house.

After leaving Copenhagen we met up with Michael Schuh from Kajakgaarden. Over the weekend we ran two Yoga for Paddlers sessions and four rolling classes. The weather was gorgeous, and despite a little wind and a thunderstorm or two, the sun dominated the weekend. When off the water we had a wonderful time hanging out with Michael and Jane, who took very good care of us. Thanks to both of you!
