Friday Photo 2

DSCN1703

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