Yesterday was one of the best days in a really long time, I had so much fun and spent the whole afternoon and evening with people that I like.
I wrote a short entry yesterday about it being cloudy outside and Bakken would then maybe get canceled. After that the weather cleared up and got sunny, around 14:20 pm me and Lev left our home to go to my parents. At my parents we switched to a bigger car and drove to Helsingborg where my sister lives and where we were taking the ferry from. My mom was dropped off at the local Forex and exchanged our money from Swedish kronor to Danish kronor and soon as she was picked up again we left for the ferry terminal.
There are two companies that sail between Helsingborg in Sweden and Helsingör in Denmark, Scandlines and HH-Ferries. We went with the last company as they’re ticket for bringing a car over was 100 kr cheaper than the other company, their boats aren’t that fun cause their tax free shop doesn’t have much but then again, you can’t do that much in the 20 mins it takes to go from Helsingborg to Helsingör.
The trip over was fun, me and Lev was outside for a bit so he could take some pics, it was kinda windy, but it’s always windy on the boats After some pics we went in and got the Danish money from my parents and in no time it was back to the car again (20 mins passes pretty quick)
The drive from Helsingör to Klampenborg where Bakken is located isn’t that long, just about 1 hour. we still felt that a stop at Netto in Humlebaeck was necessary, we needed drinks Me and Lev bought a big bottle of ice tea, cherry tic tacs and miracle whip (haven’t seen that before over here) while my dad and sister stocked up on beer and mom, who was driving at this point, also got a bottle of ice tea
I don’t remember what time it was when we arrived at Bakken, probably around 17:00 pm I would guess. The weather had cleared up quite a bit and there was actually a lot more people than I would have thought. We wandered around for a while in the park, checking people, rides and restaurants out.
While the folks was checking for tables at a restaurant we took of to a nearby arcade and found Tekken there, of course we had to play. Men and Lev popped in some money and the battle started, I actually won and had to play all by myself against the “computer” for quite some time, then I got bored and let my sister take over. We walked around for a while in the amusement park before we decided to eat dinner.
For dinner we all had buffet, we’re you can eat as much as you want of the different kinds of food that they offer. I had a lot of veggies and watermelon for dessert, my sister got hooked on turkey and is now trying to enforce celebration of Thanksgiving within the family each year… Hehe. Anyways, the food was really good and my folks are the best for treating us all to it!
After the dinner we walked around a little more, had some slush ice and tried out some arcade stuff. We all got hooked when we found this arcade with 2 air hockey tables in it, my sister played against my dad on one table (and she almost killed people in there the way she played… haha) and me and Lev took the second table. The first match Lev beat me but I came back and actually beat him the second time. It was so much fun!
The ride to the ferry terminal in Helsingör on our way back went quick, I saw some animal (looked like a fox or something) on the side of the road but everyone else seemed to miss it, I dunno if I was hallucinating or that everyone else were temporarily blind
We arrived to the ferries around 22:35 or so, just a few minutes after a ferry left and since it was a Saturday evening we had to wait one hour before another ferry would depart, not so fun. The hour was spent in the car, me and my sister took some really stupid pics, I still laugh when I look at them. Lev was a bit more calm than the rest of my family, my dad and sister was hyper like little kiddies and I was all laughing.
Not many people on the boat when we finally got on it. I got happy though cause I found a chocolate that I have been looking for during several months, luckily for me I got this amazing boyfriend that spoils me and got it for me
Around 01:00 we arrived at our place, really tired but very content after a really funny day in Denmark Thanks everyone for the great day!
(Pics might show up in a gallery some day, I gotta get them from Lev, who was the photographer that day)
