Viking Blod bottle

Yes, I know, two Denmark posts in a row. But my husband and I started binge-watching Vikings on the History channel a few weeks ago. So it seemed only appropriate to talk about one of the drinks we bought in Denmark last year: Viking Blod.

ARoS Art museum Denmark

While in Denmark, we spent three days in Aarhus (pronounced Oar-hoos). Aarhus is the second largest city in Denmark, with a population of about 315,000. While there, we wanted to explore ARoS, the Aarhus Art Museum (Kunstmuseum in Danish).
