My first day in Copenhagen was pretty awesome thanks to the crew at Ancestral. Doing a little homework to find a local wine bar pays off! I landed around 2pm and then found my tour group and went to the hotel. After a quick meet and greet I took a local bus to the city center and went to Ancestral. It was tucked away in an area where, I dare say, was quite hipster-ish. But it was awesome!!!
I had forgotten how many languages Europeans know! I walked into Ancestral and the server sat me at the bar, and he quickly switched to German with another couple, then French to speak with another server, and Danish to speak to other staff. I LOVE IT! Anyways, I had a nice half mile walk there and took some pictures of the architecture, including waking through Tívoli, which I hope to visit tomorrow!
So let’s focus on Ancestral. I had a few courses including bread & butter, quail, and halibut. Oh, and a fig dessert. Each paired with a different wine.
The last wine I had was a dessert wine which reminded me of LPR. I explained what this means to the server, and guess what!!! He wrote it in the door!!!! If you don’t know what this means, ask me!
I had a great time, even put one of their stickers in my bag! I hope they are open tomorrow, I may just go back!!
So here is how I know Chris was with me... I went to the restroom and they had the Star Wars theme song playing and a photo. What an amazing first day!!!
Have passport, will travel.
