    Hakkemosen

    September 17, 2018 in Denmark ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Hakkemosen is the refuge we have sought 40km from the centre of Copenhagen. Considering it is on the edge of an industrial estate it manages to feel very rural, despite the distant drone of traffic from the surrounding motorways and the occasional clangs of heavy machinery. It is bordered by woodland and has a large open green with picnic tables and a fire pit surrounded by four, substantial, well used logs arranged in a square. Paths of cut grass lead off into the woods and if you follow them you'll come to a lake as pretty as any you'd find out in the wilds. Signs of the city are however present at the small car park we are staying in for two nights. A blackened patch and broken glass indicate a car has been burned out and a large enclosed blue metal rubbish skip sits behind us.

    We came straight from a day exploring the capital. Although it is a fantastic place we breathed a sigh of relief to be away from the city lights. Neither of us felt like moving on in the morning so Will headed to the lake with his fishing gear and Vicky stayed in, catching up with the blog and doing a bit of cleaning and clothes washing. She'd found an article that said you could use conkers as a laundry detergent and as the green was lined with Horse Chestnut trees, their leaves turning brown and curling and their shiny mahogany coloured fruit splitting its spiky green pods, she went foraging! Taking 6 conkers she chopped and then heated them in water, before poured the liquid through a sieve into the clothes washing barrel with a few drops of eucalyptus oil. It seemed to work just as well as the soap nut mixture she normally makes and was free!

    She was glad she collected the conkers first thing because a class of young children arrived with a large bucket and went around picking every one they could find, their teachers even going so far as to hit the branches with sticks to dislodge more! It was lovely to watch them scampering around; children in a lot of countries we have travelled in seem to have more freedom than they do in the UK schools. As well as the little ones there were 16 teenagers with an adult. They arrived on bikes and spent the morning doing activities in the woods. Four of them erected a small modern wig wam and chopped wood unsupervised to make a fire for when the others came back for lunch. With their freedom, we get the impression that children are expected to be more responsible and they seem to live up to this challenge.

    Will's morning at the lake extended to half past 2 when Vicky marched over and fetched him for his lunch after he didn't answer his phone. She did let him go back after ensuring his call volume was turned up! He found it really peaceful there and the perfect come down from our Copenhagen adventure.

    Copenhagen, here we come

    July 26, 2017 in Denmark ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Where - Berlin to Copenhagen
    Weather- raining in Germany, fine in Denmark 22°C
    Distance - 420km plus ferry crossing

    Today was another travelling day from Berlin to Rostock, ferry crossing about 2 hours then on to our accommodation near Copenhagen. We were stressing a bit because the airbnb accommodation we had booked had not been confirmed with the host so I'm busy trying to contact airbnb to sort it out. One of those little hiccups you get occasionally. Anyway, all sorted and we have a place to stay.

    The only place we visited was an area called Stevns Klint which is a white chalk cliff that is a world heritage UNESCO site because of fossils there from the Creataceous period. There is an ancient stone church perched right on the cliff edge that has fantastic views, and a very steep staircase down to the stony beach - yes, we climbed down it.

    After that it was an easy drive to our accommodation - a quiet home in the suburbs - ready for a big day in Copenhagen tomorrow.

    Schweden -> Dänemark (inkl Outlet x2)

    August 1 in Denmark ⋅ 🌧 14 °C

    Heute war, nachdem wir über die Öresundbrücke wieder nach Dänemark gefahren sind, shoppen angesagt; erster Stopp im Outlet Copenhagen, was eigentlich eher ein Einkaufszentrum war. Hier haben wir für Körbi's Freund Bobo noch eine Freundin gekauft: Giraffe Gaby. Außerdem hat Mami noch ein paar schöne neue Klamotten bekommen und durfte ein letztes Mal in ihrem Lieblings-Bastelladen bummeln gehen.
    Nach einem kurzen Snack für Körbi ging's dann weiter ins Outlet Ringsted. Dort haben Papi, Körbi, Pauli, Ben und Jakob ein paar neue Schuhe bekommen. Außerdem gab's noch bisschen was im Legowear-Laden. Hat sich nochmal gelohnt 🥰
    Letzte Etappe für heute war der Weg zum Sanddobberrne Camping. Bisher unser tollster Stellplatz: direkt an der Ostsee. Toller Blick aufs Meer. Und das Wetter ist jetzt auch gut. Ab jetzt soll es die nächsten Tage sonnig sein. Hier wollen wir noch ein paar Tage entspannen.
