Copenhagen, Day 1

I am so happy to be on vacation.  I seriously needed a change of scenery.  Very excited to be in Copenhagen too.  What is really nice about this trip is that the whole family will be together at certain times.  Emily is here for a week, Jessica pops in from London to hang with us for a few days and Josh is the one constant. 

We got here this morning with very few hours of sleep but managed to hit a few spots.  We spent most of the morning in the Vesterbro area.  This area has a meat packing area and it is in the process of change with up and coming trendy shops. Our first stop was for breakfast at Granola.  Super cute cafe.  Delicious smoothies.

Egg sandwich for Josh.

The rest of us had the breakfast platter.  Toast, soft boiled egg, ham, cheese, small glass of granola, fruit and strawberry jam on the side. 

We then ambled down Halmtorvet where a lot of the shops and cafes are.  Designer Zoo is a store that is a workplace for a variety of artists to work and sell their wares.

There are bicycles everywhere.  What is truly amazing is very few of them are locked up.  Wow.  That would not be happening in NYC.

This is called the Dansk store.  Simple, stark and cool.

Josh:em on the go
I love taking picture of the back end of the kids.  Emily is guiding us this morning.

Love these solar panels hanging from the buildings.

Our last stop we were going to a gallery in the meat packing area but it was closed…we will return.

You know you need a vacation because when we got to our hotel I was short a room.  This vacation has had a lot of moving parts except for Josh.  I thought I booked a third room but alas, I did not.  So we are staying at the Nimb for two nights and then moving to Hotel Stk Petri on Wednesday night.  Considering I rarely miss a beat it bums me out I screwed up.  It all worked out in the end but I will say that I might consider getting someone, an intern, someone to do a few things for me when I return.  We will see.  I do like being a one woman band but I think my bandwidth might have snapped a few months ago.
