Stevns Klint: Seaside UNESCO World Heritage Site in Denmark

Our exploration of Denmark continues! There are a few perks of living on an island (yes, although not exotic, much of Denmark is islands). It is great to be able to walk out to the water in times like these and breathe in the fresh ocean air. It is still rather cold here, mid 40s most days, but the weather has taken a turn for the better. We have seen the sun nearly everyday for the last few weeks.

Every Danish Pastry You Need to Try in Denmark | Danish Pastries 101

As Americans when you think of Danish pastries, what comes to mind? Maybe cherry filling, cream cheese, and flakey dough? In the states we are used to eating “Danishes,” but the original Danish pastry, from Denmark, is a bit different. It is called a spandauer. I put my honeymoon body on the line for this post! There is not one pastry that I did not try. It just would not be fair to review these tasty sweets without trying every single one. So, you are welcome! 😉 But truly, there is nothing like waking up early and heading down to our local bakery, to get warm treats that come straight from the oven.
