A trip to Copenhagen by Kazuko Part 1

I went on a trip to Copenhagen., Denmark with my husband. It was our first private trip as we usually travel on a group tour. So, we had to do everything by ourselves. I prepared for this trip for more than one month before. I referred to  a guide book and made a detailed itinerary. So, I was very nervous on the departure night. In addition, a huge typhoon was approaching. At last we flew to Copenhagen on a Friday with many concerns. In Copenhagen we sometimes got lost as we visited a lot of places such as old castles an churches. Kronburg Castle was especially interesting. It is on the outskirts of he city. Do you know the quotation "To be, or not to be. That is the question." You have probably heard it at least once. This is the famous passage from from Hamlet which is one of SHakespear' four major tragedies. Actually it is said that Hamlet is set in Kronberg Castle. Hamlet is a dark story where the King's ghost appears and many people die or are killed in revenge.
