Last June, we finished off our fabulous Tauck Baltic tour with a day on our own in Copenhagen. The last sight we visited was the Christiansborg Palace, and it was beautiful. The Royal family does not live here, but it is the seat of the Danish Parliament located in the heart of Copenhagen. The … Continue reading Christiansborg Palace in Copenhagen – Christiansborg Slot
We visited The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center while in Austin, Texas, and it far exceeded my expectations , given that it was January. We walked all of the trails, and while they were not colorful, they were very beautiful. We spent a couple of peaceful and lovely hours walking the grounds.
