    Storvorde - Glesborg

    May 18 in Denmark ⋅ ☁️ 12 °C

    Die Nacht war ruhig, aber immer noch ist das Wetter sehr bedeckt und manchmal regnet es.
    Wir haben über Nacht hier mit einem weiteren großen Wohnmobil vermutlich aus Polen gestanden.
    Seit dem frühen Vormittag war reges Treiben auf dem Parkplatz. Hier haben sich viele Lauf- und Wandergruppen für den Samstag Sport getroffen und auch Vogelkundler sind von diesem Parkplatz auf Erkundung gestartet.
    Wir haben auch eine kleine Wanderung auf den Berg unternommen und die frische Wald- und Wiesenluft genossen.
    Auch wegen des nicht so tollen Wetter sind wir heute ein bisschen weiter gefahren.
    Unser Stellplatz lag heute nicht weit vom Wasser gerade noch so mit Meerblick auf einem Parkplatz am Ende einer Straße in einem Feriengebiet.

    Aarhus

    July 24 in Denmark ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Nach einer erholsamen Nacht auf einem geschützten Parkplatz fuhren wir weiter nach Aarhus. Unser erstes Ziel war die "endlose Brücke". Es handelt sich um eine kreisförmige Brücke die vom Strand in die Bucht führt. Hier lagen wir im Gras und genossen die Sonne. ☀️
    Danach begaben wir uns ins Zentrum und besuchten das Freilichtmuseum "Den Gamle By" (Die Alte Stadt). Hier wird dargestellt, wie die Menschen in Dänemark früher lebten.
    Die Nacht verbrachten wir in Hobro auf einem Campingplatz. 🏕️

    Neun Freunde und eine ...

    August 24 in Denmark ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    ...verrückte Idee.
    Ein Arzt, ein Lehrer, ein Koch, ein Metzger, ein Helikopterpilot und vier Ingenieure mit hoher Motivation und wenig Kapital und noch weniger Ahnung davon, wie man Whisky macht.
    Die Idee eines dänischen Whiskys wurde beim gemeinsamen Whiskytrinken aus der Frage geboren „Warum gibt es eigentlich keinen dänischen Whisky?“ Die Bedingungen sind ähnlich wie in Schottland.
    Sie begannen alles über Whisky Herstellung zu lesen und wollten einen Whisky, ähnlich dem Islay Scotch Whisky erschaffen.
    Am Anfang alles improvisiert, begann man in einem alten Schlachthaus mit der Produktion, die eigentlich nur für den eigenen Bedarf gedacht war.
    2006 konnte der erste Tropfen verkostet werden und der war besser als erwartet. Auf einer Whisky Messe traf man den Autor der „Whisky Bibel“, Jim Murray und übergab ihm eine Kostprobe des eigenen Machwerkes. Dieser erkannte in dem Produkt der Hobby- Whisky- Brenner ganz viel Potenzial.
    Das motivierte die Jungs dazu richtig durchzustarten.

    Auch wenn heute einiges in der Produktion automatisiert abläuft, spürt man während der Führung die Leidenschaft, die hier in das Produkt fließt.
    Wir haben die Führung mit Verkostung gebucht. Diese wird in deutsch, englisch und dänisch angeboten. Am Wochenende leider nur in dänisch, also musste Julia den Übersetzer für mich spielen (echt schwierig, mir die Übersetzung zuflüstern und mit dem anderen Ohr schon weiter zuhören 😮)
    Man bekommt wirklich jeden Produktionsschritt in den Hallen gezeigt und erklärt. Die Architektur der neuen Produktionshallen ist auch faszinierend, ganz viel Glas, mit Blick in die Landschaft.
    Für diesen Whisky werden nur Produkte aus der Region verwendet.
    Auch wer Whisky nicht mag, diese Erfolgsgeschichte aus einer „Whiskylaune“ vom Hobby- Whisky- Hersteller zum professionellen Business Whisky Destillerie und der Blick hinter die Kulissen der Produktion und ins Fasslager, wo das kostbare Gold lagert, ist sehr spannend.
    Wer mehr wissen will über die dänische Whiskydestillerie, hier geht es zur Homepage ( leider nur in Englisch)
    https://www.stauningwhisky.com/visit-us/ (übrigens unbezahlte Werbung)
    In meine Shopping- Tüte ist ein Roggen Whisky gewandert. Wer probieren will...
    Mir hat dieser besonders geschmeckt und Roggen zu mälzen ist eher unüblich.
    Angenehm war auch der Single Malt. Was nicht so meins ist, ist der sehr rauchige Whisky, wer aber Islay Whisky mag...

    Nach der Whisky Tour gab es am Abend noch einen Kinobesuch. Mir wurde ja seit Monaten von diesem großartigen Kino vorgeschwärmt.
    Und ich muss sagen, richtig toll. Diese gemütlichen Sessel, die du dir elektronisch so einstellst, dass du die Füße lang machen kannst und dein Rücken- und Kopfteil eine entspannte Sicht auf die Leinwand ermöglicht. Man kann sicher auch gut darin schlafen, wenn der Film langweilig wird 🤪.
    Um aber doch noch auf hohem Niveau zu jammern... eine Massagefunktion im Sessel wäre noch toll und die Dänen essen nur salziges Popcorn 🥴. Im Ernst, das Kino ist wirklich toll.
    Und damit ich auch etwas versehe, gab es König der Löwen im Original. Ich kenn die Story und genau mein Englisch - Sprachniveau 😉.

    Århus, 15.08.2019

    August 16 in Denmark ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    Auch Schweden haben wir nun hinter uns gelassen, dafür hat die AIDA heute in der dänischen Stadt Århus ihren Anker geworfen. Von Århus hatte ich davor noch nie gehört, umso positiver überrascht war ich von dieser Stadt.
    Geschichtlich ist die Århus auf jeden Fall interessant, in Museen ist die Entwicklung der Stadt auch total schön aufbereitet: Aufgrund der günstigen Lage zwischen Meer und Fluss haben Wikinger hier um das Jahr 770 das Dorf Arus gegründet, welches in einem Wikingermuseum teilweise mit Originalfunden für Touristen anschaulich gemacht wird. Später wurde die heranwachsende Stadt zu Århus umbenannt und gilt heute als eine der ältesten Städte Nordeuropas.
    Richtig toll war vor allem auch die Altstadt 'De Gamle By' rekonstuiert. Die noch bestehenden Gebäude wurden in mehrere Abschnitte unterschiedlicher Zeitepochen eingeteilt und in einem Freiluftmuseum wirklichkeitsgetreu für Touristen zugänglich gemacht. Zurück in den Zeitraum von etwa 1860 bis 1975 versetzt, konnten wir durch die uneben gepflasterten Gassen schlendern und verschiedene Geschäfte, Häuser ärmerer und reicherer Familien, den Marktplatz, einen Dorffestplatz und viele weitere Orte aus dieser Zeit besuchen. Doch nicht nur die Altstadt selbst, sondern auch deren Einwohner wurden authentisch nachgespielt. So wurden wir mitten in ein buntes Treiben aus geschäftigen Arbeitern, vornehmen Leuten, Kutschfahrern und watschelnden Gänsen hineingeworfen. Während die Leute in ihren altmodischen Klamotten in Häusern kochten und stickten oder in kleinen Läden ihre Ware verkauften, konnte man sich wirklich vorstellen, wie das Leben damals ausgesehen haben muss.
    Ansonsten war auch der Skywalk auf dem großen Einkaufszentrum 'Salling' definitiv einen Besuch wert. Auf dem mehrstöckigen Kaufhaus ist eine große Dachterrasse auf 127 Metern angebracht, von der man eine wunderschöne Aussicht über die ganze Stadt hat. Durch den durchsichtigen Boden konnte man direkt in die bekannteste Einkaufsstraße hinunterblicken, die direkt vor einem großen, backsteinfarbenen Dom mit einem auffälligen, grünen Dach endete.
    Spaß hat es auch gemacht, einfach durch die schmalen Gassen zu schlendern, die teilweise direkt an Kanälen gelegen waren. Die vielen gemütlichen Straßencafés, Souvenir- und Einkaufsläden und älteren, dänischen Häuser, an denen wir vorbeigelaufen sind, haben uns allen sehr gut gefallen.
    Århus hatte viel mehr zu bieten, als wir erwartetet hatten, der Stopp hier hat sich auf jeden Fall gelohnt!

    1 - Aarhus

    August 3 in Denmark ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    10 hours on the train was a bit tooooo long. But we survived! Sadly a part of the group had a lot of trouble with the trains so they arrived later. We checked in into the Airbnb which is located at the harbor so also really central. We have a really nice view with a small balcony which is great. After we checked in and showered (since we were still wearing the clothes from Friday and it was disgusting) we strolled around the city to find something to eat. We ended up with a pizza.
    So after we had an delicious dinner we went to get the rest of the group whom finally arrived at the station and went for another walk through the city. Just exploring and seeing things, but taking it easy. My impression of Aarhus is really clean and safe. It’s not big like tourist big so you’re feeling kind of with the locals. It’s nice!
    This weekend in Aarhus there is a sort of festival in the harbor. So there are stages everywhere and they had a big firework show.
    But now it’s time to really catch up with some sleep since I haven’t really slept at all past night.

    Tomorrow we will continue our journey to Copenhagen.

    Leaving Aarhus

    August 4 in Denmark ⋅ ☁️ 20 °C

    Aarhus is a beautiful city. In the morning we had a really nice breakfast at grod, after that we went for a walk to the museaum Aros. It known from the rainbow panoramic view. It was really weird walking up there since everything was a weird color. But a truly nice experience. Then we checked out the museum, it was really big and it does have a lot of paintings in different styles and from different times. It was really nice to see. After the museum we went back to hostel to get our stuff and went on to the station. Goodbye Aarhus. 😇Read more

    Oddesundbroen Day 1

    July 14, 2018 in Denmark ⋅ ☁️ 15 °C

    We are within sight of the low, grey, triple arched Oddensund road and rail bridge. It occasionally stops traffic and raises the section closest to us in order to let a cargo ship or more often a tall masted sail boat pass through. The Oddensund is one of a handful of bridges that cross the Limfjord, a shallow body of water that spans the breadth of Denmark, separating mainland Jutland from the large North Jutlandic Island where we are now parked.

    At 14°C the day began a little cooler than we've been used to and the overcast sky even managed the lightest smattering of rain for a few seconds. Nothing near what it will take to refill the ponds that are running dry or rejuvenate the parched trees, some of whose leaves are curling crisply, turning brown and falling foul of the blustery winds who snap their stems and scatter them at the roadside.

    As we crossed the Oddesundbroen and saw the open grassland we were about to pull on to, Vicky recognised it as another place we had stayed during our previous trip to Denmark. It looked a bit rough with some heavy machinery, piles of aggregate and a couple of WWII concrete bunkers. However, it was close to the water, had picnic tables a toilet, walks along the fjord and Poppy could wander off lead to her heart's content.

    After a warming cuppa (we'd actually had the heating on when driving!) Vicky had a browse on Trip Advisor, which showed a grill house with decent reviews less than a kilometre away. We hadn't eaten out in Denmark yet so as it was approaching lunch time we set off on the scenic route, ducking under the bridge and skirting round the coastline on the stoney beach. Coming to a small harbour, various pieces of fishing paraphernalia lay stacked on the ground; nets, floats, concrete anchors and ropes. As well as the fishing industry, the marina catered for tourists, providing free bikes on loan and even a kitchen and room for you to sit and shelter from the wind.

    The Oddesund Bistro had a counter like a takeaway, with a list of dishes and prices on a backlit board above it. Vicky spent some time deciphering the different options as we let people go ahead of us, but in the end ordered a husburger (house burger) for Will and fish for herself. She enjoyed speaking a little Danish but the friendly server took it as a given that they should speak English.

    The conservatory that ran alongside the building provided a view of the Limfjord and a choice of tables covered in pink polka dot plastic tablecloths. For a simple roadside café the food was good, if a little over salted. On the way back we poked our heads inside one of the WWII bunkers near the van. There was movement and stange noises from the dark inside. Upon investigating further we found it was an art installation. In each room of the bunker was a large piece of sculpted iron mesh. To it was attached one or more moving lights and speakers. As the machines shone the light in different directions, the shadows would creep along the concrete walls. Vicky thought it looked like something out of a horror movie whose script went sonething like 'unsuspecting foreign tourists stumple upon the lair of...' Thanks to the internet, we found it was the work of artist Alex Mørch in his exhibition 'Fe' (both the symbol for iron and Danish for fairy). It was part of a series of exhibits to be shown in the Regelbau 411 bunkers. If you are interested, here is the website: https://www.regelbau411.dk/about-1/

    Later that evening two of the three bunkers were locked up, but Will went to explore the third. With just a few information boards in Danish and German it was the least engaging, but it did have a swallow's nest from which two hungry mouths were protruding, proclaiming insistently that they were hungry!

    Oddesundbroen Day 2

    July 15, 2018 in Denmark ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    For the last 2 years we've had a month by month itinerary and stuck to it. We've been flexible within this, lingering in interesting or beautiful regions and zipping through ones we didn't enjoy. However, we've been expecting an appointment letter for Will's colonoscopy that has not yet arrived. This leaves us unsure of how much time we have to explore this part of the world and it has got Vicky mulling things over. How much should we look forward and think about the places left to go, the sights left to see and how much do we immerse ourselves in the moment? We sometimes feel an urge to get going, to make sure we don't miss out on adventures that await us, but is this necessarily better than enjoying the moment where we are?

    Well, we've certainly enjoyed our second day here at Oddesund Bridge! 16°C was warm enough for Vicky to take Poppy outside for half an hour of Pilates/Yoga in the picnic area when she first got up. After breakfast, Will took his fishing gear to the bank of the Limfjord, while Vicky set off with the camera on a walk eastwards along the shore. Summer was in full swing and Avocets circled above as Vicky crossed a cow field in which there were a few shallow ponds, where undoubtedly the birds had chosen to nest.

    Although the land was crisp and dry underfoot, nature still flourished. Little butterflies flitted between flowers and there was even a large dragonfly zipping back and forth over pink shrub roses. In the long grass Vicky found a silken caterpillar nest, whose occupants were ready to make their way into the world. Although the route was not very well advertised, along the way there were numerous benches and picnic tables, mostly tucked away in small woodland groves to shelter them from the wind.

    After meeting back at the van for lunch, we both went and had a look at the other WWII bunkers, then passed underneath the bridge to check out the water. We'd been itching to get out in the canoe but the wind had been so consistently ferocious that we'd not yet been able to. It was still blowy today but the section of water on the other side of the bridge was somewhat sheltered by the land and we reckoned it was worth a go. After trundling the canoe down to the waterside on its wheels, it was an easy launch from the shingle beach. Staying close to the shore we got our muscles working to power against the wind and paddle round to the marina we had walked to yesterday, with Vicky calling out every jellyfish she spotted. Soon after we passed the marina, the waves grew and whitecaps could be seen ahead, so we found a good place to turn and headed home, with the wind behind us. It had only been 30 minutes but it felt good to have got out on the water again. The Limfjord had one last treat in store for us; about 10 metres away Vicky spotted two dark, round, glassy eyes watching us from the water and Will turned round quickly enough to see the little seal duck its head back under. We scanned the waves for a while, hoping to catch another glimpse. Although we saw disturbances in the surface the creature knew we'd set eyes on it and was too wary to make contact again. We wonder how long we'd been on its radar?

    Fillerup Picnic Site

    August 3, 2018 in Denmark ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Swathes of sandy coloured stubble fill our windscreen view. The grain and straw have been harvested and this isn't the only thing that triggers thoughts of Autumn. We are parked under the shade of a tall oak tree in a layby picnic area. Despite the lack of breeze we occasionally hear the crisp sound of an acorn falling through the canopy, hitting the dry leaves and branches on the way down. Some even land with a loud bang on Martha's roof, making far more noise than they are entitled to, given their small size. The small Plane trees that provide shelter for the picnic tables have had enough of the hot drought too. They have begun to drop their leaves that lay thick on the grass, crackling in a flurry when the odd car drives by.

    The day has been focussed on getting jobs done. After three days in the forest dell near Vejle the van batteries are drained, as are our portable power packs. The shady spot was great for keeping cool, but not good for solar charging. Running the air con so frequently when driving diverts a lot of charge that would otherwise be directed to our two 110amp leisure batteries, leaving them sadly lacking. Setting off, we stuck as much as we could on charge, eschewed the air con, except for the occasional blast and hoped that just our side lights would suffice for the Danish law requiring you to drive with lights on at all times.

    First port of call was an Aldi that didn't exist and second was a caravan shop that transpired to be just a caravan storage pen. However there was a Rema 1000 supermarket nearby, so all was not lost. We were quite desperate to find a cap for our oven flue after the original came off. The resulting 6cm hole in the roof not only made it difficult to keep the oven alight, but let in what little rain their was. When driving in slow traffic we'd followed a caravan with a 'Vejle Caravans' sticker on it. Vicky had commented that it was local, so we did a search and on finding out it was just 10km away, let Google guide us there. It turned out to be an amazing shop with plastic wine and spirit glasses and even a decanter, all made to look like cut glass. It also had very good plastic imitations of crockery bowls, plates and cups. We were almost disappointed we already had everything set up in the kitchen! We had not dared hope that we'd find a flue cap here, but sure enough, there it was, exactly what we needed! Relief buoyed us up and we made the purchase with wide grins on our faces. Despite having measured it, we still couldn't quite believe our luck, so Vicky climbed on top of the roof and fitted it there and then in the car park. Result! It was perfect!

    Next on the jobs list came filling and emptying. Will had found a motorway rest area that provided a service point, but the water was turned off and the toilet emptying backed up. There was enough room for the contents of our cassette, but we still had the problem of clean water; our guage telling us we were at 0%. A 14km drive brought us to the service point on the other side of the motorway but again we found the water had been switched off at the caravan filling point. Looking round, we discovered the unsigned motorhome point, but were dismayed to find the water button had actually been removed. However, water flowed freely from the hose designed to rinse the drain after emptying waste. We've only had one bout of water poisoning in the two years we've been on the road, but it certainly isn't something we want to repeat! We decided to go for it, running the water through first and rinsing the nozzle thoroughly. We hope it will be ok.

    From here we travelled a decent distance, giving the batteries a reasonable charge. Will had planned to stay by the sea but it had been another hot one and the site looked very exposed, so we instead opted for the shade of the acorn tree in this picnic area.
