On Friday Gigi drove us and Felip (their AFS exchange volunteer) to Aarhus via Odense and Odder (where we dropped him off). Angel and Heinrich also drove and we all checked in to the Helnan Marselis Hotel for the night. It has a sea view from the window. For dinner, we went to a big converted warehouse that now houses around 20 street food vendors. It was great with lots of choice.
The next day after breakfast Gigi took us around the town (second largest in Denmark) starting with a walk along the beach which ended with a quick foray into a deer park - some of the deer were quite aggressive in their search for food and Gigi got a good head butt from a small stag!
We then hopped into the car to drive to a reconstructed town with buildings from the 1700s through to the 1970s. It was very well done from original buildings. From there we walked to the modern art museum which has an impressive rainbow walking platform (enclosed) above the building. It was quite amazing to walk through. We managed to look at some of the art works too!
Finally we ventured into the city centre and had a quick snack at a roof top cafe at the top of the Salling department store. Gigi drove us home which took about 2 hours on the motorway and included crossing a very long bridge across the ocean between two of Denmark’s islands.
Today we left Høng in the morning after a leisurely breakfast with the family. We arrived in Dublin at about 4 pm.Read more
