Had a bit of Wanderlust in me. Sometimes you just get in the car and go where the day takes you. This was the result of missing the ferry...PNW in all its splendor.

Copenhagen was the best way to end our Nordic tour! Expensive, yes. But absolutely beautiful and well worth the experience! Walking around on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day we realized how empty the city was of tourists and locals. Shops were closed, restaurants were empty and the streets were bare. The days following became more lively, with crowds filling the streets and stores and the energy of the city came to life. Four days gave us ample time to explore the cuisine, atmosphere and sights that Copenhagen had to offer. Luckily we had plenty of recommendations to go off of! 💥🤤🇩🇰

Tip #1 - Flights!
We have had a pretty good experience with flights so far in our journeys. A good rule of thumb is to always watch prices, but usually no more than ~3 months before your trip is the best time to buy! We usually use google flights to find the best deals and to track the best time to buy, it has a sweet option to send you updates on current and future price changes.
We swear by @alaskaair though, they have an awesome perk if you’re a mileage member, where if you book your ticket and anytime before you leave the price drops you can contact them and they will credit you the difference! We did this for our first flight to Chicago O’Hare before heading towards Scotland! We bought a one way ticket, watched the price drop, then used the credit to buy the ticket back home!
Also, sometimes it’s cheaper to look for a flight from your hometown to a international hub, and then from there to your destination, rather than a straight flight, it could save you hundreds of dollars!
