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.

    I imagine a good personal assistant would do wonders for your overall productivity and happiness…but if you aren’t quite ready to make the leap, maybe just try something like or for some of the lesser/mundane tasks that aren’t worth filling up your own schedule for anymore…

      I am going to think about it

    many of the bikes actually are locked up, they have a very small, built in lock that’s just a simple metal bar that latches across the inner side of the back wheel right near the top of the frame. My sister lived in Sweden for awhile and showed it to me, pretty ingenious.

    I love these pictures. And look at those modest portion sizes of your breakfast ;)Sounds like someone is suffering from Wonderwoman Syndrome? Think of it this way: that intern will be a very lucky person!

    Much better foursquare list (visuals) than what I found on Fred’s post.Especially the breakfast platter … when i zoomed the picture it really made me hungry … have not eaten ham since 2003.
