The cute match — who you may perceive from "How I Met Your Mother" —both have requesting professions that send them fly setting the world over to film motion pictures and go to glitzy celebrity main street occasions with Hollywood's finest.

But the elegant life is only a liven. Their most critical activity is being guardians to Gideon and Harper, who both turn 8 on Oct. 12. Furthermore, with such exciting guardians, it shouldn't come as an unexpected that they go on some entirely unique get-aways together. The strangely adorable family has been seen flipping coins in Rome's Trevi wellspring, observing Christmas in Argentina, and investing a lot of value energy at Disney World.

We sat down with the couple to hear what it resembles venturing to the far corners of the planet as a family at an occasion praising their new organization with the Capital One Savor Card. Fortunately for the team — whose kids' elevated taste buds mean they decline to eat off the youngsters' menu — the card offers 4% money back on feasting and entertainment.

We got the scoop on what else their children get a kick out of the chance to eat, how they remain loose on whole deal flights, and their most loved place to take a sudden family vacation. Your children are quite all around voyaged. Do you have any tips for going on a more drawn out experience with youthful children?

Neil Patrick Harris: "We began our children voyaging early so the movement component of it wasn't troublesome to them. We don't need airplane meltdowns and we didn't need them to be irritated by it. Any excursion we take a stab at taking with the children we respect the time zone. You would prefer not to touch base into a place that is six, seven hours away and afterward begin your experiences. We'll include multi day or two as a buffer."

David Burtka: "We truly don't give the children their iPads much, until the point that we go on the plane and after that they're covetous for control of their iPads."

Harris: "We can top off their iPad with whatever films, whatever amusements are proper for them — 20 hours worth of material — and they can invest as much energy as they need with them."

How do you choose where to take your family out of town in the primary place?

Burtka: "We truly consider what is useful for kids. This mid year we heard that Copenhagen was incredible for children and say thanks to God we went there in light of the fact that it was a phenomenal place for kids."

Why is Copenhagen such an extraordinary family destination?

Burtka: "They have an event congregation right amidst town, Tivoli, and it's inconceivable. It's a place that Walt Disney went to, one of the most established carnivals on the planet. He went there for motivation for Disney World. You can drive 20 minutes outside to Hamlet's Castle where they're doing reenactments of Hamlet. They're in the cells with the phantoms and the rulers and rulers and you get the opportunity to toss wet wipes at an entertainer. At that point you go an additional 20 minutes and you're on a viking ship and you're really painting viking swords and shields. It's so fun."

Are your children audacious eaters?

Burtka: "In Copenhagen there's their celebrated Noma, and obviously we're not going to take children to a four-hour, $300 dinner with 18 courses. Be that as it may, some other eatery, there's no limitation since they'll eat anything on the menu. Our children eat superior to we do."

Harris: "A piece of the enjoyment of life is attempting things, right? So what we've said to our children since they were extremely youthful: take a stab at something. Don't not attempt ocean urchin since it looks net, taste it. On the off chance that you don't care for it, we're not going to drive you to eat it."

Burtka: "One of their most loved nourishments is ocean urchin." 

Harris: "I will state the main downside is that when you have two children that have brave beds, that like eating off the principle menu, they're not requesting from the more affordable youngsters' menu. We're basically eating for four grown-ups. So it's a pleasant thing that with the Capital One Savor card you get money back."

Any guidance for motivating children to eat like yours?

Burtka: "Begin them youthful and have them eat what you eat. There's many individuals who assuage to their children and will make an entire other supper for them rather than simply having what you're eating that night."

Harris: "Children can take a considerable measure of exercises from their folks and their practices, and they reflect them as much as they can. It's who they invest the most energy with so being brave is something to attempt and achieve. On the off chance that you chose as a grown-up you just like these 14 dinners at various eateries, your children will see that and choose 'I should just need to attempt particular things.'"

What's the following experience with your family?

Burtka: "We complete a yearly trek to Orlando."

Harris: "I work at Disney World toward the beginning of the Christmas season. I get the chance to recount the narrative of the introduction of infant Jesus at Epcot Center thrice daily for a week and we get the opportunity to eat far and wide at the World Showcase. That is so much fun and we're conveying our companions that conveyed us to Denmark and they're bringing their two kids."

Burtka: "We're exceptionally energized for a future safari somewhere."

Harris: "We very need to take them to Japan. That is our enormous excursion and we're sitting tight for them to be the right age. I don't need them to simply be overpowered by everything. I need them to have the capacity to process it in a more grown-up way."
