Friday Photo 2


This photo was taken in snowy Nyhavn, Copenhagen in February 2009, where we were treated to a winter wonderland.

I had taken Mrs Wilbur for her first visit to Scandinavia on the understanding that she accompany me to the FC Copenhagen  v Manchester City UEFA Cup match.

I had been to Copenhagen several times on inter-rail trips in ’89 & ’92 and a few work trips and had been slightly underwhelmed with the Danish capital.

This all changed with this visit when we had a brilliant time and both loved it.

Finally, the football ended 2-2 with a good proportion of the game played through a snow-blizzard.

The game was most memorable for me for the exuberant (and inebriated) City fan who leapt onto the safety net that we were positioned behind both times City scored!




  1. I prefer the safety net on the boat!

    1. Well spotted! One of City’s wayward shots went into that net too…
