    When you think campsites and shelter-boxes can't get any better.....

    ...the free camping in Denmark has given us an absolute cracker!

    After trying 2 map-marked campsites that turned out to be a tic-filled field of 50cm deep grass and a scount camp next to a motorway, lucky number three was a "Mølle" (windmill)- not a field in the vicinity but actually under it, in the mill grounds! We are the only ones here too. Bonus!

    A beautifully mown lawn with table and chairs, a clean bathroom and electricity are the luxuries of the day. We just paid 30KR for us both(€4) to go inside the windmill which the caretaker unlocked for us. (Nice deal as the single person price was 30KR.


    The blackbird hopping about and singing on our shelterbox woke us up pretty early. I have never heard such a loud blackbird before 😄-A few cycles of snoozing the alarm got us on the way to our breakfast supermarket and onwards with EV3.

    Today's riding was pretty nice (as usual!!!)- mostly flat, some lovely tree-lined avenues forming tunnels over the track and the usual animal companions plus a camel and a black snake!

    Despite its slightly temperamental weather, Denmark is becoming a surprise forerunner as one of the favourite trip countries and I'd certainly recommend it to anyone who loves the outdoor life.

    Its much more expensive than Germany for food, but if that inflation is taxation which contribute to the awesome provision of free campsites, then I'm certainly a supporter.
