Welp, 2017 might have been a bust for a big Staci-Jen trip (due to awful work schedules and medical complications), but we're rectifying that with a newly booked trip to...
COPENHAGEN & STOCKHOLM!
Get ready for the Jethags to invade your feeds with posts on vikings, herring, and ABBA.
Here's what I'm excited for in each city (possible day trips to come):
OK, so this isn't technically in Copenhagen, but that doesn't mean we can't visit it. In fact, from what I know, we absolutely SHOULD visit it. Besides the super cool building and "maze of halls and corridors that weave through the rolling gardens" (according to Lonely Planet), the art in the halls are worth the trip. The museum houses work by artists like Jean Arp, Max Ernst, Warhol, Bacon, Picasso, and Giacometti just to name a few.
I'm always fascinated by Europe's Jewish Quarters. Even though I don't have any (known) ancestry in Nordic countries, it's always cool to see what other Jews experienced throughout history. This museum memorializes the story of Danish Jews who were saved from Nazi persecution by their fellow Danes in October 1943. The interior of the museum looks INSANE.
British afternoon tea, but Swedish style? YES PLEASE! I'll take all the coffees and pastries STAT. I plan on trying this in a few places since its more of a cultural thing than a meal specific to any one shop.
If you've been to Denmark or Sweden recently, we welcome any and all suggestions (especially on shopping, eating and drinking)!
