AES Headphone Technology Conference: A walk through Aaborg.

It's always a bit Twilight Zone to travel for 20 hours only to arrive at your destination at 9 o'clock in the morning. I walked up to the desk clerk at the Aaborg Hotel to check in.

"I'm sorry, sir. Your room won't be ready until about 2 PM."

He handed me a map of the town and pointed out that the old city center and walking district was only about a ten minute walk. I grabbed my camera as he stowed the rest of my stuff behind the desk, and I headed out in a solid state of travel daze to peer through my camera at this very old new-to-me place.

Welcome to my Aaborg, Denmark pic dump.

Just in case you're into old stuff: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hospital_of_the_Holy_Ghost,_Aalborg
That building is from 1431, 20 years before Christopher Columbus was even born and is still in use.

Come to Scotland to check RHA and Linn.
There's plenty of tradition to experience including proper whisky that goes so good with Scottish music.

Seems like it's 3 meters wide. I wonder how deep it goes?, better be nice to the neighbors.

My wife says your snaps look like Children's Book Illustrations in 'real life'! Seems a wonderful place to explore.

What an amazing contrast to our Suburbs, here in the States, where we own 3,000 sq.ft. homes with 1/2 Acre lawns.

What do the Motorcycles look like? 50cc,100cc?
The commuter Busses and Trains?

Phew, it's a different world.

ps. those underwear people, I'd frame that one!

You might want to add an 'l' to get "Aalborg" but whatever :-) The big futuristic building is our new (2015 I think) music hall.

Hope you will enjoy your stay, I might take a walk down town and see if I can be lucky and spot you :-)
