While we had a great time in Berlin, we were certainly ready to head back to Copenhagen right away. I t’s not that Berlin wasn’t great, it just wasn’t cosy like Denmark.
Oh I don’t think I’ve mentioned “cosy” … from what I could tell, if there was one “thing” the Danes would want a tourist to say about their country it’s that it was “cosy.” You can take my word for it, the food, the atmosphere, the people, were certainly cosy.
On our first day back we grabbed some pastries and took a train out to a small town to see a Viking ship museum. The ship museum is focused around 7 viking ships that were found sunk together off the coast. They were able to salvage enough of the ships to preserve and piece back together. It was a very modern, beautiful museum all around right along the water. In the summertime you can take a ride on a ship that was built how the vikings built their ships, so I will be back for that experience one day.
This is the side of the ship you can ride on in the summer: The highlight of the museum was a room full of Viking clothing and some props. Thankfully, being there in the “off season” we had the space to ourselves to really explore our inner Viking.
There was a beautiful restaurant outside of the ship museum, in full coziness they had fur blankets for the chairs and beautiful, natural candle-filled centerpieces. The food was unbelievable as well – take a look at Kyle’s pork sandwich. Yes, my salmon (which was equally delicious) looked a little sad next to that sandwich.
After that big meal (and after all of the coffee I drank) we burned off some energy by chasing ducks around the park.
Ok, I think I have one more post in me from our trip, then I’ll start to get up to speed on our other adventure photos since then!
