Den little Havrue (aka The Little Mermaid): Copenhagen, Denmark

On my second day in Copenhagen, I took the metro up north to see The Little Mermaid, supposedly the most photographed sight in the world. It’s amazing to think that a story by Hans Christian Andersen and a movie by Disney could lead to such a thing.  I only took a few pictures because how many photos can you really take of a statue? But I’m really happy I saw it. To be honest, it was one of my Must Sees on my list of things to do in Copenhagen because The Little Mermaid is my favorite Disney movie.

Pro-tip for mermaid fans: There is another statue of The Little Mermaid outside of The Black Diamond (aka The Royal Library) that I was excited to find:

Needless to say, this Little Mermaid fan was happy. 

I’ve done so much walking over the past two days and I have a huge blister on my left ankle but Copenhagen has been great.

Seeing The Little Mermaid statue today was probably the best though. I’ve loved TLM since it was released so this was a treat.

Thank you to the Danish people for knowing english so well. Without that my slightly ignorant American ass would have gotten nowhere. But really, could you have made the streets in your city more confusing? I acclimate to cities fairly well but the streets here confuse the shit out of me.

Though I did give some other tourists directions to the airport today from Central Station so that was cool.
