    Aalborg, Denmark

    May 4, 2017 in Denmark ⋅ ☀️ 11 °C

    We are entering the port of Aalborg, Denmark this morning. Our excursions were delayed because high winds prevented our mooring on time. When we got off the ship there were 50 mph gusts. The town of Aalborg was nice, but our guide was an older woman named Else who could not keep up with our group. So Glenda and I left the group and went on our own. We photographed the church of Our Lady and that of St. Botolph, Jen Bang's house and the old castle. Several chemical plants upwind gave the town an unpleasant odor. Unfortunately, most of the old buildings were demolished in the 1960's in a move toward modernization. Our ship docked right beside the University of Aalbord, which has some lovely modern Danish architecture. At 9 pm we are exiting Denmark and passing a beautiful little town called Storvord.Read more
