We just booked a flight to Copenhagen for a quick weekend getaway this August! This isn't our first trip (the photo above is from our last visit in 2005), but we are ready to go back and explore some more.

We are doing a little bit of research in advance, gathering some recommendations from friends and trusted sources.

We also are going to bring a copy of the moleskine copenhagen notebook to make an old fashioned travel log. The book opens with the Aldous Huxley quote: "For every traveller who has any taste of his own, the only useful guidebook will be the one which he himself has written." And in past trips we have found that you look a lot less like a lost tourist when you bust out an innocuous little moleskine to consult a map (they have great ones) than a nerdy lonely planet.

We wandered around Kødbyen (the meatpacking dist) for a while in a jetlag daze. After finding ourselves lost in a gigantic wholesale grocery store we made our around for food.

Day one found us in Kødbyen @ Paté Paté for lunch.
