So, after we finished up the holiday celebrations for our respective work parties, we started our little festive getaway. Upon arrival, we dropped off our bags and immediately headed to the world-famous Christmas markets, affectionately known as julemarkeder. This was where we had our first experience of Danish Glogg, a mulled wine with soaked rasins and almonds, and later we tried it with a shot of spiced rum as well. It was a perfect warm buzz to keep us feeling cozy in the cool winter air! We also sampled some of Denmark’s traditional bacon dishes (one of which was called “Burning Love,” served with potatoes and onion).
All of this gluttonous meal was under the watchful eye of one very knowledgeable and passionate New Zealand foodie, who throughout our meal told us his wild stories of meeting celebrities and of becoming the second ever legally married gay couple in the world (quickly followed by the first ever legally divorced gay couple in the world). Whether the stories were in fact truth – we may never know! But what we do know, Christmas in Copenhagen was a beautiful and inspired experience.
