BioMio, Copenhagen, Denmark
Delicious Organic Fare in the Meatpacking District of Copenhagen
We walked by BioMio a few times before trying it. It's located in an old Bosch (think sparkplugs) warehouse in the vibrant Meatpacking (Kod Byen) district in Copenhagen. The menu is organic fare but it has something for everyone. It was also very kid-friendly which basically sold us on it. One note is that they used to be cafeteria style but have now moved towards table-service, which we appreciated. The Danish to English translations on the menu aren't great but well worth muddling your way through or asking for recommendations from the server. I'd recommend going for some items off of the Food to Fight For portion. We had the honey-baked beets and smoked cod rillette -- both amazing. But the real surprise of the night was a recommendation from the server to try the "potato aioli". We thought this might be like a potato salad and were skeptical but decided to give it a try. It was the best dish of the evening. It's really more of a potato type spread but with fish roe adding a nice saltiness. It was fantastic on bread. The kids ordered the fishcake from the kids menu as well as the burger from the adult menu. Both good choices as well. A nice wine-selection rounded out the experience.

Viking Ship Museum

Viking Ship Museum, Roskilde, Denmark
Take a Day Trip from Copenhagen to the Viking Ship Museum
We went to the Viking Ship Museum while visiting Copenhagen. It's about 1/2 hour train ride from the city and another 10 minutes or so on the bus (#203). I expected to spend about a half day here entertaining the kids but we ended up spending much more because it was so engaging. They have actual kid activities that are interesting and fun -- view old viking weapons, learn how to sword fight with wooden shields and sword (a staff member will show you how it's done), decorate your own shield and sword to take home, learn how to make rope -- and this is just one small part of the whole experience. Inside you can view the remnants of the 5 viking ships that were discovered in the harbor and learn about how they recreated them. You can also watch a film about how a crew sailed a recreated ship from Roskilde to Dublin (while seated in a replica ship). The kids can try on traditional viking costumes. And finally, but not least, you can pay a small fee to take one of the replicated viking boats out on the water! There's no motor -- just oars to row out and then use the wind to sail back in. It's beautiful out on the water and to have a view back to town. The kids can participate or just watch all the activity. There was so much to do and a variety of offerings that engaged the whole family. Definitely a must-do with kids on a visit to Copenhagen.

Hotel Excelsior Dubrovnik

Hotel Excelsior Dubrovnik, Dubrovnik, Croatia
Luxury Living in Dubrovnik
There is no shortage of places to spend the night in and around Dubrovnik, but one of the best is the Hotel Excelsior Dubrovnik. Known as one of the top hotels in the world, its location just a few steps from the historic old town of Dubrovnik means not only great access, but amazing views as well. Spend the afternoon sipping a cocktail on their patio and watch as the sun descends into the impossibly blue waters.
