🇩🇰 DINAMARCA / DENMARK - NYHAVN ________________________________________ * 👀 Nyhavn is a 17th-century waterfront, canal and entertainment district in Copenhagen, Denmark. Stretching from Kongens Nytorv to the harbour front just south of the Royal Playhouse, it is lined by brightly coloured 17th and early 18th century townhouses and bars, cafes and restaurants. The canal harbours many historical wooden ships. Nyhavn was constructed by King Christian V from 1670 to 1673, dug by Swedish prisoners of war from the Dano-Swedish War 1658–1660. It is a gateway from the sea to the old inner city at Kongens Nytorv (King's Square), where ships handled cargo and fishermens' catch. It was notorious for beer, sailors, and prostitution. Danish author Hans Christian Andersen lived at Nyhavn for some 18 years.
The first bridge across Nyhavn opened on 6 February 1875. It was a temporary wooden footbridge. It was replaced by the current bridge in 1912. As ocean-going ships grew larger, Nyhavn was taken over by internal Danish small vessel freight traffic. After World War II land transport took over this role and small vessel traffic disappeared from the Port of Copenhagen, leaving Nyhavn largely deserted of ships.
In the mid-1960s, the Nyhavn Society was founded with the aim of revitalising the area. In 1977, Nyhavn was inaugurated as a veteran ship and museum harbour by Copenhagen’s Lord Mayor Egon Weidekamp. In 1980 Nyhavn quay was pedestrianised; it had been used as a parking area in the previous years which had coincided with a dwindling of harbour activities. Since then it has become a popular spot for tourists and locals alike, serving the function of a square according to architects Jan Gehl and Lars Gemzøe. __________________________________ #paulo_always_travelling#melhoresdestinos#quetalviajar#globetrotter#amoviajar#loucosporviagem#travelgram#turistando#tripadvisor#instatrip#kopenhag#awesome_destinations#travelguide#europa#ig_cameras_united#ilovedenmark#melhoresdestinos#europe_gallery#viajarfazbem#places_wow#lonelyplanet#roamtheplanet#copenhagen#dinamarca#ig_copenhagen#kopenhagen#instatravelgram#copenhague#denmark🇩🇰 #madeindenmar
These three right here. I gave birth to all these in 3 years time. I had a 3 year old, 1 year old, and a newborn. Life has been chaos ever since. I would not change a damn thing about it. They’re thick as thieves these 3 and I pray it stays that way into adulthood. I always wished I had siblings close to me, so I love being able to see the bond they have..
For his entire life he has been so easy to work with, never fussed when I ask him to do things. Never was too cool for stuff.. until he turned 7 😭 Photos were like pulling teeth last night with this one lol

Ten la fortaleza para continuar y la constancia de intentarlo una y otra vez cuando algo salga mal.
Ten la facultad de ver belleza donde los demás vean ruinas, que jamás te abandone la esperanza de un sueño nuevo y la persistencia para construirlo.
Que siempre te acompañe la ocasión de ofrecer y compartir y la sabiduría de esperar nada a sabiendas de que lo entregas todo.
