Canyoning Pics and Copenhagen

I promised in my last post that I'd share a few pics from my canyoning adventure once I got my hands on the CD and so here are a few of those pics.

This is me walking in front of one of the waterfalls we got to see along our way. Although I was glad we had the wetsuits since the water was so cold, they were not flattering at all on my body.

Here I am rappelling for the second time. Evidently the tour company used to give people the option of jumping off this cliff instead of rappelling, but stopped that once a girl shattered her spine while jumping. Scary much?

This was probably the scariest portion of the day. Jumping off the cliffs into the water. Glad I did it though!

I haven't been up to much this past week except planning where Sean and I are going on this upcoming four day at the end of this week. We tossed around the idea of going to Athens, Greece or Oslo, Norway, but in the end the price of tickets to Greece skyrocketed and the timing of the flights to Oslo just weren't working for us. So, we chose Copenhagen, Denmark. Technically our plane isn't landing in Copenhagen, but it's close enough that we can take the train/bus there and still be only a couple hours away from the airport. Not too shabby!  To be honest, Copenhagen wasn't high on my list of places to see in Europe, but I've never been to Denmark and so I'm welcoming the chance to go. The only thing I'm not excited about is that the Scandanavian countries are pretty pricey, but I think since we're only going for a few days that we'll be ok.

You are so much braver than me. I am terrified of heights and I'm way too much of a klutz to ever make it through a trip like that alive. I'd be the girl who's spine shattered or the girl you mentioned who got her face all cut up.
Enjoy Denmark! I've never been, but my aunt and uncle lived there twice for a few months each time (for my uncles work) and they loved it. But then again, they're the types who just love culture in general and love to soak it all up- good and bad. Like when I was living in ND, my aunt got me a travel book about the was pretty much a book trying to make it seem like there are worthwhile things to do in ND. Lol.

Wow! Those photos are awesome! That'll definitely be something to look back on and be able to say, I did it!

Have a great time in Denmark!

Yiiiiikes!!! Have fun in Copenhagen :) We connected through there on our way to Rome and I took a picture with the little mermaid statue in the airport, but that's my only experience with Denmark ;)
