We loved seeing the colorful buildings, beautiful brickwork, cobblestone sidewalks, and hand-crafted gifts and foods
And windmills around every corner!
We split a sausage plate for dinner. It was delicious, but it made my stomach angry later. :(
There were Danish bakeries everywhere, torturing us with their sweet, buttery aromas
We visited the Hans Christian Andersen museum where we learned that he was the son of a poor shoemaker who made his own way in the world through his writings. Also, he was spurned in love many times, but the ladies probably regretted it after he became famous. :)
Dan is practicing his pose for his own statue someday.
The Solvang tour
Their cute wooden telephone booth. I'm not really calling anyone, or even holding the phone against my ear for that matter because I don't welcome ear cooties.
The whole town was this adorable
We tasted our first Aebleskiver at Solvang Restaurant. They are spherical Danish pancakes with raspberry jam and powdered sugar on top. Delicious!!
It is also the world's most fun word to say: "ee-bul-skee-ver"
We visited the nearby town of Los Olivos, where I was shocked to discover that olives grow on trees (like the tree right behind me)! If you had asked me before that moment, I would've maybe guessed that they grow on a bush like berries.
But nope, there they are hanging from tree branches! My brain just got a new wrinkle.
