Way back in August, and with half the Ashe clan in tow, we visited Helsingør for the first time. Better known as Elsinore, it's castle Kronborg provides the setting for Hamlet.

Ordrupgaard conveniently sits just below Jægersborg Dyrehave, a mad deer park that is home to over 2,000 deer. It was a beautiful afternoon to be careering around Dyrehaven, and … Continue reading Jægersborg Dyrehave
