It is with much joy (and a small bit of terror) that I reveal to you that we are taking both the youngsters on a big trans-Atlantic airplane in less than a month!

What are we thinking?

Hooray! We are heading to Copenhagen to stay with a a dear college buddy together with her tall hubby as well as bit son.
Oh dear! We are traveling day as well as night with two preschooler boys.

In the process of preparing, we’re buying guidebooks, downloading apps, making lists, as well as thinking about purchases (kid-size neck pillow worth it or just more crap?). See, I like packing almost as much as traveling.

I likewise like research study as well as tips, so this is where you come in, oh smart readers. What are your preferred kid-friendly destinations in Copenhagen, daytrips worth visiting in Denmark, travel guides, products, as well as web resources that I must understand about in the 18 days before I leave?

And now the back story…
On my very first date with Alec, we talked about travel. We wooed each other with the exotic destinations that we’d visited that the other hadn’t yet. Thailand, Turkey, as well as Greece were under my belt, however Alec had me impressed with Kenya as well as Australia.

After about a year of dating, we started plotting our huge experience around the world. I published a big map on the wall of our apartment as well as we circled any type of as well as all regions of interest. Some days, I would circle a city. other times, a whole continent.

One thing led to one more as well as our fantastic journey ended up being the MonsterMoon after our wedding. We chucked all our possessions in storage, provided up our adorable rent-controlled apartment, as well as went on indefinite leaves-of-absence from work to take our six-month honeymoon around the world.

{Side note: thanks to many years of business trips, we only had to pay for one ticket}

We made everything the method to Swakopmund, Namibia before we found our bit embryonic stowaway. only two months into our trip. Ugh. as well as likewise blech. To this day, South African tea reminds me of my occasional morning sickness.

After falling asleep at dinner, puking behind gas stations, as well as being kicked off our safari leaving our safari early (for being a Malaria risk), we decided to end our trip early. In three months of travel, we explored parts of many countries (UK, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, South Africa, Namibia, Singapore). It would take years to go everywhere we desired to.

So, we made a gentleman’s contract that we would leave the country every year of our marriage. then we provided ourselves a free pass for 2005 on account of the newborn. We barely made it to Mexico in 2006. then we provided ourselves a free pass for 2007 on account of the second newborn. 2008, we almost went to Paraguay to go to my cousin. 2009 we didn’t rather make it to new Zealand since we added a second bathroom to the house. At this rate, we’re basically amortizing our honeymoon rather than really taking trips.

គ្មាន​ទៀត​ទេ! I booked tickets. We’re doing it. We may regret it, however we’re going.

Taking the boys overseas

When in doubt, just add cocoa. Right?
