Cruise of the Baltics: First stop - Copenhagen

Brett and I went on a 10 day cruise of the Baltic Sea in June that departed from Copenhagen. We found the city easy to get around and the people very friendly. As expected, it was a pricey city to eat and shop in, but we enjoyed ourselves regardless.

This pretty area was known as the Nyhaven neighborhood, which was on a canal with lots of little outdoor cafes.

While strolling around, we came across the most honest (and humble) marketing message we've ever seen. (Look towards the bottom of the building at the beer claim for Carlsberg)

But our favorite part was stumbling upon a free street exhibition of amusing signs from all over the world. In addition to traditional toilet humor they also had things like "look under your car for penguins" and signs that depicted not walking into the side mirrors of trucks. I guess there's a sign for everything.
