Last weekend I was at Tivoli in Copenhagen, this weekend I was at Gotham City’s Tivoli – Liseberg. Unfortunately Gotham was showing its usual self tonight i.e. it was raining which kind of killed the mood a bit, it was still a nice evening together with mother dearest.
The rain pretty much started when we got there so we decided to start with the indoor shopping area.There wasn’t that much upstairs (I did manage to buy ½ christmas present though) so we decided to move back down and brave the rain. Almost the first thing that caught my eye was these little buggers;They were yum, however they only helped kick starting my appetite so after a visit to the Christmas bookstore/cafe/Christmas foods in the old-fashioned way, we made a pit stop. And as the Christmas lover that I am, I thought that some proper Christmas food were in place!Yeah right, I forgot, I’m not a christmas fan so some good old-fashioned junk food in the form of some corn chips, mince and Mexican like sauces did it for me! Then we moved on to more Christmassy things like;
To not break the tradition from last week, I of course needed an Irish coffee, while my mother settled for some Glögg (a drink that I have never managed to like even though it’s kind of required for Swedish Christmas celebrations).
With strength of a tad alcohol we moved towards the gambling hall and executed, as per tradition, a horse-race. I came second in the whole race (there are up to 12 players in each round), my mother didn’t come first – I won! I won! I won! Hahahaha, love it!All in all it was a nice evening thus it saddens me that I have to say this – Tivoli won the competition for the coziest christmas amusement park. Liseberg won the shopping competition, I managed to find myself and early Christmas present!While waiting for the tram to take us home again, this was our beautiful view;
