Last weekend Baby J and I joined my husband on a business trip to Aalborg (fourth largest city in Denmark). My husband had meetings on Friday afternoon, a client event on Saturday evening and a client breakfast on Sunday morning. We decided to join him and enjoy some time together in between the meetings. And while he was working my baby boy and I went for walks or stayed in the hotelroom and enjoyed some room service. Not bad at all 🙂
Getting to Aalborg from Copenhagen was first a 1 1/2 hour drive, then 1 1/2 hour by ferry followed by another 1 1/2 hour by car. Our little one managed perfectly and slept in the car, was awake on the ferry and then slept again. If he gets uneasy when driving, we put on some music which tends to distract him. Easy for now!
Here is a glimpse of the trip and some tips for the city of Aalborg
My best tip for traveling with kids is to ask for little favours. Remember: No one ever died from asking 🙂 And honestly, a hotel that’s not willing to go the extra mile for their guests, is not worth staying at.
Things I have on my list for next time I visit Aalborg:
– Have dinner at Nam Social Dining & Drinks
– Enjoy some Mexican finger food for lunch at Vaca (also exists in Aarhus and soon in Copenhagen!)
– Try all the other cakes at Penny Lane 😉
– Visit the Utzon Center
Aalborg is only an hour away from beautiful Aarhus. Fin day guide to Aarhus here
