AB&Me Travels: A day at the Beautiful City of Solvang

[This is part of our AB&Me Travels : US Trip last March 2015. I am in Dubai at the time of this writing]

City of Solvang – 03.09.15

Early Monday morning, we got on to two cars and drove to the Danish Capital of America. It was a about 2 hours and a half on the road but I wasn’t complaining. The drive was breathtaking.

We arrived just a few hours before lunch time so we decided to just have brunch at a quaint restaurant that my sister has been telling me about.

I wasn’t really hungry but the menu was so tempting so I ordered a mean Tuna Melt with some potatoes. Blake loves potatoes as much as I do so she finished that whole side serving. 😀

My sis also ordered pizza and pasta. The whole thing was just perfect with some wine but I resisted. We were still adjusting to the time shift so I didn’t want to be more wasted than I should be at the end of the day. 😀

Food. Wine. Fun – definitely lives up to their slogan!

Solvang /sunny field in Danish/ is such a pretty sight.

A giant clog in front of a shoe store at the corner of Copenhagen street!

It is filled with Danish-style architecture that gives an “old” feel to the place (at least for me). The best way to describe it comes from the song A Whole New World!! 

A whole new world, a new fantastic point of view…

Every turn a surprise (every moment, red-letter)… you can find antique stores in every corner. Don’t be afraid to go in narrow alleys …

A whole new world, a hundred thousand things to see …. flower beds line shop fronts which makes the view even more appealing.

Unbelievable sights …

Indescribable feelings … (I’m sorry, I think I’m still at a high from Disneyland .. LOL)

Windmills complete the feels!

After a lot of walking, some ice cream, and souvenir shopping, we decided to drive back home.

But we made a little detour to take some more photos of these stunning views. We actually had a lot of fun on that rail. (check out my instagram for more photos!!)

Will definitely visit this place again when I’m back in Cali. It’s so picturesque.
