We've daydreamed about doing it, and now we finally are—we're moving to Denmark for six weeks*! We're doing a house exchange through Behomm with a Danish family that lives in Copenhagen. It's straight outta The Holiday without Jack Black, snowy cabins, etc.
It's our first international flight as a family and Sigge's first ever. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't nervous—I know we'll be fine but long flights with kids are tough. And the longest we've ever flown with just two kids is five hours. So. Pray we get that bassinet we requested and we're sitting in bulkhead seats so Keen has a little more legroom and that our kids sleep the night and the people around us are nice (and super patient).
We leave in just a week so I'm packing, deep cleaning, and ? I don't know what else I should be doing. We're not planning our trip until we get there. We'll spend most of our time in Denmark, but make trips to Germany, Sweden, Norway, and ?. I'd love to hear tips on what to see and do and eat. We'd like to rent a cargo bike to get around easily, too.
Can't wait for all that family time in one of my favorite regions in the world. Imagining the boys running wild at a Danish playground, or riding the ferris wheel at Tivoli at night, is making me so, so excited. I'll be sharing our experience here on the blog so you can follow along if you'd like!
*made possible by paternity leave. Thank you, Airbnb! One day I will write about those precious few weeks before and after Siggers was born—it was the best.
