Myself and Christopher gave up on the idea of getting a ferry from Gothenburg back to Newcastle as it was sooo feckin pricey. So seeing as we're so flush, we've decided to fritter the money away another way and we'll just keep heading west, visiting as many people as possible until we turn into alcoholics.

So we hopped over the water to Kopenhagen where we were met by the brilliantly named Funck of the 'Nha Trang Crazy Squad' fame. Him and Jacob had a crate of Tuborg and huge pizzas waiting for us which was fucking wonderful.

Something I didn't know about Copenhagen is that it operates a bicycle coperative, whereby if you don't have a bike then you simply just take someone elses. Funck has had dozens of bicycles pilfered in the past and is tired of buying new ones, now he just "liberates" the unuseds lying about the city. So he had three freshly stolen steeds ready for some tipsy pedalling round the Copenhagen red light district by night, which was great fun until I fell off - twice. Anyway, we went for a few choice bevvies at the pumping Hip Hop Office and left to see that - shock horror - all three of our bikes had been nicked! Justice I suppose... but no wucking forries, the master Funckster had the "liberator" to hand and we soon had three new ones!

Funck is at teacher training college here, so the next night we headed down to his student union. What a sight, at 5pm the place was pumping full of people getting loaded. It's freshers week here so the party was really in full swing and people were friendly as hell. Been loving Denmark, defo a favourite and yet another welcome surprise.

Tomorrow comes the big finale and what could maybe be the last destination before returning to the UNITED KINGDOM! It's no small one - Enschede, Holland wi da main man, the Ginga, the one, the only, RaaauuuullL!!
