A trip to Solvang

So for Valentine's Day I got taken to Solvang, a little Danish town inland from Santa Barbara (more or less). Also, I think until now I haven't mentioned that my boyfriend is a pilot. And has a little Cessna. Um, and a helicopter. Yeah, so we flew to Solvang. I present to you some photos:

Solvang is tiny and full of Danish things and except for all the Americans, feels a little bit like you took a trip to Europe (if you don't look too hard at thngs like stop signs and signals...)

If you go, you have to eat at Olsen's, it's a staple. You can also buy their Danish Butter cookies online and they'll ship them anywhere. Yum.

Overall, highly recommended and quite enjoyable. The End.
The end.

I totally live not too far away from there. One of my close friends grew up in that area and promised me a locals-secrets tour someday.

Hmmm.. I've always avoided Solvang for fear of the oom-pa-pa factor being too high, but your photos make it seem so awesome! I can't wait to go

Kim, you must share your secrets (when you get them)! And zinzi, it can definitely be oom-pa-pa but just go with a sense of humor and you'll have a great time!
