You'd think 8 months into Brexit shipping something as simple as a poster by mail(!) from the UK into the EU would be sorted. Nah, says Royal Academy museum, we don't ship anything to the EU at the mo, whatever it is. Solution: have it send to a friend both outside UK and EU, and have it forwarded to me.

This was our second and final week vacationing in Copenhagen.
We spent a day together in Nørrebro, by bicycle, at the start of the week.
Tuesday we went to Tivoli where we found out that Y thoroughly enjoyed the rides. Meaning that, as she isn't tall enough yet to go on her own, E and I went on many more rides than we would have on our own. Friday we spent the entire day at Tivoli again, much to Y's joy. This happened as I
