Buying My Ticket To Copenhagen

The Swedish ticket machines appeared to be very comprehensive, but trying to buy the ticket to Copenhagen was very difficult, so in the end I queued up and bought it from a person, who was very helpful and spoke English better than myself.

Swedish Ticket Machines

My first problem, was that like the touch screens in IKEA at Edmonton, my fingers had the wrong dampness to make them work. But by changing to another machine, I was able to work the system.

Then I found the problem, that turned me towards buying a ticket from a person.  Although, I was using the machine in English, the place names were still in Swedish.  How many of those who speak English as a first language, know how to spell Copenhagen in Swedish.

I’ve always felt that every town or city, should only have one name and those that live there should choose it. That way, we would probably all know the town names that didn’t confuse.
