Anyone who lives in Key West will tell you that September and October are the most miserably hot and humid months, and also the time we’re most likely to have to worry about hurricanes. The town empties out and everyone goes on vacation. Who are we to question that tradition?
When we began planning our return to Europe, we decided to do something novel (for us) and just pick a couple places to spend multiple days in, rather than jumping all over, trying to see as much as possible. We picked Copenhagen (known for being pretty much our ideal social climate) and Berlin, which I’ve wanted to visit since I became a Cold War nerd in middle school.
