Summer time, trip to Legoland and Ribe Viking center

   The reason I have been a bit 'silent' on my blog and site is because I was enjoying some summer vacation with my family.

   At the end of July we took the children to Denmark where we visited Legoland and the Ribe Viking center. Anyone who has little boys/girls who aspire to be ' Master builders ' ( tittle courtesy of The Lego Movie' ), then a trip to lego land is the perfect place to gather inspiration.

   The rides are lego themed, but the waiting lines were pretty long and the sun was hot.. so that was not exactly the best part of the trip, but apart for the kiosks, restaurants, shops and rides, the artitistic concept of combining millions of little lego bricks with lovely and well kept miniature trees, and flowers is pretty amazing.

   After two full days at Lego land we decided to take it a little easy, and chose to drive to the Ribe Viking center. It was a nice way for the children to unwind, and enjoy some time with farm animals.
