Catching Up

My my, I guess I’ve been shirking my blogging duties lately, haven’t I? I’m sure you’ve missed my profound posts, so get ready for some new ones! Keep an eye out for a post by the weekend recapping my recent trip to “beautiful” Las Vegas. Of course, it’s not really beautiful at all (to me), but I still had a fun weekend there with Scott and some friends! I mean, I got to see Mariah Carey in concert for the FIRST TIME, so I was bound to enjoy it. 😀

More importantly, I’m less than a month out from my next Europe trip! As a refresher, this year’s trip is all about Scandinavia (and some places near Scandinavia), including:

  • Iceland (Reykyavik)
  • Norway (Oslo and Bergen)
  • Denmark (Copenhagen)
  • Finland (Helsinki)
  • Estonia (Tallinn – just a day trip for this one)
  • Sweden (Stockholm)

As usual, I’m pretty excited to get there! I’ll be posting more about the trip soon as we start firming up some of the things we want to see and do there. In the meantime, if you have any recommendations on must-see places, must-eat-at restaurants, or anything else, leave a comment and let me know!

  1. Denmark was my favourite place I visited in Europe! Make sure you see the little mermaid and tivoli! Also if you have time try to do a canal tour. If you haven’t decide on it, I defiantly recommend getting the Copenhagen card, I found it was worth it. It gets you into many of the attractions, churches and palaces for free and has plenty of discount for almost everything that’s not free including restaurants and shops.

    1. That’s great info – thanks! I’m generally a support of city cards, especially for a first-time city visit, because they often provide great value for money. At the end of the day, it’s a simple value proposition – do you want to see enough of the attractions the card gives you access to that you’ll come out ahead buying the card vs. paying individual entrance fees? I haven’t looked much into the Copenhagen Card yet, but I definitely will now. 🙂

      1. exactly! I was a bit skeptical at first when they offered it to me at the airport but once I started exploring the city the first day it just made sense. Plus it included transit which is a nice perk. I spent one afternoon just riding a bus route to see the residential areas, I was looking for the aquarium, but I found a beach which was a nice perk. Where are you staying while there?

      2. When traveling outside the country (and sometimes within the US!), I almost always stay in Airbnb places and Copenhagen is no exception. 🙂 We’ve got a great-looking flat in Vesterbro, not too far from Enghaveparken. Really looking forward to it!
