Even though I am born in Copenhagen and lived there for several years, I was more than 20 before I saw The Little Mermaid many many years ago.
This month was the first time I climbed the spire of the Church of Our Saviour. It was worth it. The morning was pretty and sunny and the view was spectacular.
Looking for information about the church on Wikipedia, I learned that Axel, a character from Jules Verne’s A Journey to the Center of the Earth, was made to climb the spire for five consecutive days by his uncle to cure him of his Acrophobia before their descent into the volcano.
I still have four climbs to do then :)
