As a kid, Copenhagen, the capital city of Denmark, was one of the first places I dreamed of visiting. My brother Ammon had just returned from a few month trip to Europe and I was fascinated by his stories! It took me nearly 100 countries before I FINALLY visited a city I’d been dreaming of for a decade. Wow! My first trip to Denmark was on a fantastic road trip from Holland to Oslo, Norway with the parents, sister Bree and her boyfriend Donavin. It was fall and the trees were golden flakes lining old cobblestones streets. The second time was this summer with Mom on our 10-Country, 10 Capital Road Trip through Scandinavia and The Baltic States. Unfortunately booth trips were very short, so I’ll have to return again.
