In this episode, Chris Mitchell (travelingmitch) and I chat about the 2008 Rick Steves’ Europe episode “Copenhagen.” We’ll talk about how Rick throws shade on the Swedes, whether or not drinking Aqua vitae qualifies as an action shot, and why neither Stephanie nor Chris longs for Danish food. Rick Steves’ Copenhagen is a city which has made progress as well as compromises, and he shows more than just the glossy images from postcards.

Head to Hotel Ibsen for a Delicious (But Pricey) Brunch
The most delicious brunch I’ve ever had was at Hotel Ibsen. Delightful, if a bit pricey, I highly recommend those with a bit of room in their budget check it out. If you find the hotel too pricey, check your options for places to stay in Copenhagen.
