Spent a comfortable night at the Ibis hotel near the airport. Had some coffee, checked our packing and caught the very, very, very crowded airport shuttle for a 15 minute ride to the airport. After one short and one very, very long flight we arrived in Orlando on time.
Great night's rest and good coffee in the morning. Tets drove us and the dogs out to Bergen by the sea (North Sea) for a walk on the beach. There were a lot of people and dogs on a very wide and beautiful beach. There was a group of guys playing soccer and even a group swimming.
Woke at six, packed, had breakfast and headed to the S station and then to the central station. No hiccups this time because we are 'seasoned' travelers and know the ropes (?). A nice comfortable ride to Amsterdam with lots of stops and nice views of the countryside and the cities.
After breakfast we took the S-bahn to central station and checked on tomorrow's train to Amsterdam. We bought tickets for the hop-on/hop off bus and went on a 2 hour tour of the major and not so major sights. We were on the top of an open bus and it was comfortable, the weather has been great.
Another hearty breakfast, a check of our train and a short walk around this part of Hamburg. We boarded our train but didn't see any car numbers on the outside. We boarded car 2 and our seats were in car 7.
Another big breakfast and then off to the train station to catch our train to Hamburg. Rather than taking a local bus we decided to walk to the closest hop on/hop off stop for a ride to the station. They don't start running until 9 but we decided to head out early.
Docked in Copenhagen at 10 AM after a good night's sleep and it was cold and rainy. We purchased a hop on/hop off red bus ticket on-line on the ship and had a short walk to one of its stops.
Woke up late and had a large, leisurely breakfast and fixed sandwiches for lunch. Rode the tram to the central station and toured the opera house. Walked down to our ferry and checked it but had time before a 4:30 departure. It is a cruise ship.

Bought a 24 hour transit pass and rode a bus out to the viking ship museum, the number one requirement from my little viking. We became experts on the transportation system very quickly and used it to get around. Even rode a couple of loops around the city.
