Photo of the Day Sunday 2nd December – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell

Thought for the day….” What is worse than being blind? Having sight but no vision.”

A night shot of the famous Nyhavn area of Copenhagen, Denmark today.  Many of the buildings along the canal here are from the 17th and 18th centuries.   The canal was originally built by Swedish prisoners of war.   The Danish author Hans Christian Anderson lived here for a time.  In former times, it was notorious for beer, sailors and prostitution, although now it is a popular place for tourists and locals to dine out.   The main pedestrian street of Copenhagen is only a short walk away.

Happy not to be working at the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell

Thought for the day..”  Ability is not a disability ”

Staying in Copenhagen, Denmark for the photo.   Due to a noisy and poor city centre hotel, I was up early so watched the sunrise from my room on the 11th floor.     Something good about being up at the crack of dawn, another day ahead…..

Thought for the day…” There are two ways to get enough.  One is to continue to accumulate more and more.  The other is to desire less”

Why can companies who make mistakes not admit that they have done wrong?   I am still in a battle with GLS/DB Schenker over the delayed delivery of my cycle, but GLS/DB Schenker just refuse to accept that they have done wrong.  I keep quoting their website to them, and that a delivery time of ’48-72 hours” does not mean 29 days, and that ‘door to door delivery’ does not mean that I have to collect it from their offices, but they continue to be stubborn.   It will end up in a court, sad that it is necessary.   Never be afraid to admit that you have made a mistake, but GLS/DB Schenker just try to avoid it.    Lessons learnt, never using DB Schenker/GLS again.

In Scandinavia for the photo today, and to the Danish capital of Copenhagen.    Every day at 1200 the guards are changed at the Royal Palace of Amalienborg, the winter home of the Danish royal family.    The guards will be on duty for another 2 hours, until the next guards arrive.  About 1.2 million people live in the city, and apparently, 36% of them commute to work by cycle.
