Den Blå Planet in Denmark

Hi lovies!  Happy hump day!

I thought I would share another fun day from our Euro trip.  I feel like I still have sooo many more fun days to talk about and never the time to upload the pics to do it!! I promise I will stop being such a slacker lol.  This day was a perfect family day.  We went with my husbands cousin, Christian, and his wife and 2 girls.  It was a fun thing to do on the overcast day.  It was an aquarium filled with some pretty cool tropical fish.  Everything had the option of being read in Danish and in English so I wasn’t completely out of the loop!  Here are some fun pictures we took to capture the day.  Its a nice spot to check out if you are visiting for an extended period of time and especially if you have kids!  I would have to say that my favorite exhibit was seeing the piranha tank!  They are such crazy and pretty little fish, to think they are so dangerous is just mind blowing!

Outfit Details:

I opted for a comfy outfit this day. I found this tank tops at a boutique in NYC it was perfect for this trip.  I got it in black and white, similar here and here.  I opted for my comfy ripped jeans (similar here) and adidas sneakers.  This bag was also a favorite for me on this trip, perfect size and cross body (found similar here)!

Have you ever been? What was your favorite exhibit??

Carlsberg Brewery Tour in Denmark

Hi!  Happy Tuesday.  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  It never seems to be long enough though!

I wanted to share another great experience that I had on my Euro trip.  While in Denmark we visited the Carlsberg brewery! It was such a fun time and so informative.  It was founded in 1847 and the tour takes place at their original brewing location.  So much history to see and read about, its definitely a fun couples day trip if you happen to be visiting Copenhagen.  We got there and walked around the gift shop, picked up some cute magnets and sweatshirts as souvenirs.  Then we bought tickets for a tasting.  The tasting was great because the woman conducting it was super knowledgeable about the different beers and told us all about the different hops and grains used and what different methods create the different flavors.  Overall super interesting and of course you get to taste everything, who doesn’t like that? lol  The Danes love Carlsberg and Tuborg beers (and no they do not taste the same here in the states, way better in DK!)

Here are some of the snaps I got from that day.

Copenhagen, Denmark-outfit details!

Hi loves!

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend, weather was beautiful here in NY, we even got to go swimming in our friends pool!  I know I mentioned I would start posting about my trip and of course life has been a bit hectic since returning.  Finally just uploaded some of the 2000+ pictures we took on our camera.  Still working on editing them and sorting through the better ones.  I thought I would share some that I have from my iPhone as well as include some outfit details!

Copenhagen will always hold a special place in our hearts.  My husbands mother, Birgit, was from Denmark and raised right outside of Copenhagen.  She met my father-in-law and moved to the states where they then raised my husband and his brother.  Since Birgit’s entire family was still in Denmark they made yearly visits with the kids while they were growing up.  My husband was very lucky to have the experiences he did while in Denmark.  Since he had been going there pretty much every summer he was able to make such a great network of friends as well.  We would like to continue the tradition of bringing our future children there and giving them similar experiences to what Thomas had.  My brother-in-law, Adam, made his way to Denmark 4 years ago to join the Danish Army.  This was our 2nd time visiting since he has made the move, and of course he was back a number of times to the states as well over those 4 years.  Family means the world to me.  I think that growing up and sharing experiences with loved ones is important and what life is all about.  Thomas has no family in the states anymore.  His mother and father have both passed away and his brother is now living in Denmark, for what looks like the rest of his life, if not for a number of years still.  I have the privileged of being able to see my parents and close relatives by planning a weekend to drive home.  For Thomas is it a long plane ride away.  We plan on making Denmark an every other year vacation to keep a close connection with his family.  It is just as important to me as it is to him.

So with that said, this part of our trip was amazing!  I have been to Copenhagen a couple of times now, both times before were in the winter.  Now, don’t get me wrong, Copenhagen is gorgeous in the winter, but man was it cold.  I didn’t mind it too much since they don’t get the intense amounts of snow like we do in New York, but it does get pretty chilly.  The last time we went before this trip was during Christmas.  It was such a fun experience to see all the traditions and being able to spend quality family time.  This time was just so different.  We were in Denmark for a total of 14 days.  We got to stay with Adam as well as Thomas’ cousin, Christian, and his family.  Since Thomas and Adam spent most of their time in Denmark in the summers I would always hear about how amazing Danish summers were.  It was never too hot, but warm enough to make a few dips in the water.  I was excited to finally get a chance to experience the Denmark that Thomas knew so well.  With it being warmer out and sunny we got to see and do so much.  We even got to go to the bathing bridge near his grandmothers house to swim.  The same bathing house that they would swim at all summer long.  Here are just a few pictures from Copenhagen.  I plan on writing a few more entries on Copenhagen since we saw and did so many great things.  I feel one entry would not do it justice.
