Wonderful, Wonderful Copenhagen

With her harbour lights, that she wears at night

Like a golden, golden crown

Bakken, Copenhagen

Unlike Tivoli, which is refined and a bit high in the instep, Bakken is a working man’s amusement park.  You take the S train to the

Wonderful, Wonderful Copenhagen

Salty old queen of the Sea.

Of course there are hipsters that have tried to update the smørrebrød, like Aaman’s  in Copenhagen and Onkel A in Vejle. Continue Reading →

My Danish Food Wish List

Danish Food

Because the damp coast is so pathetic when it comes to Danish food – unless you make it yourself – it’s an incredible treat to come to a country where everything is readily available.  Here is the food I’m hoping to get to while in DK. Continue Reading →

Graceland, Graceland,
I’m goin’ to Graceland – DK

Memphis, Denmark

When I was looking for unusual places to go in Denmark, I came across Graceland, Denmark.  An Elvis mad Dane had built a replica of Elvis’ Memphis home in my dad’s home town.

Coincidence?  I think not! So, naturally, I had to go. Continue Reading →
