    Catching up with Ruby

    June 27, 2019 in Denmark ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Next stop was Vejle where Ruby, our niece, is living on a student exchange program. She's been here since January and leaves in December.
    She met us in town and showed us around then we had dinner at her host family.
    Very lovely evening and Ruby looked very much at home there.
    Host dad, Jean Pierre, drove us back to hotel via the Deer Park

    Dänemark - Lego!

    May 23, 2020 in Denmark ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    Was für einen Reise nach Dänemark!

    Tamara und Elias waren von Nürnberg nach Frankfurt geflogen. Ich gleich von Zürich, dann zusammen nach Billund. Wir wollten ja erst zu Lego.
    Plan war gut. Aber es gab einen Megasturm. Nach Frankfurt sind wir noch gekommen. Aber nicht mehr weiter. Nach einer Übernachtung und weiteren abgesagten Flügen hatten wir es irgendwie geschafft. Der halbe Tage reichte auch be Logo, obwohl es ganz nett war.Read more

    Tag 11

    June 17, 2019 in Denmark ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Heute haben wir einige unnötige Kilometer gemacht, weil auf den Landstrassen die Strassensperrungen nicht Frühzeitig angezeigt werden... dann gibts natürlich keine Umleitung, sondern Frau fährt alles wieder zurück.... 🙄🙄 naja, egal, trotzdem schöne Dinge gesehen..

    Sind heute los an die Ostküste (Richtung Kolding). Hier windet es auch, jedoch ist es viiiiiiel wärmer als im Westen. Dafür hat es dort mehr Möglichkeiten direkt am Meer nach zu fahren, hier nicht mehr...
    Landschaftstechnisch gibt es bis jetzt keine grossen Unterschiede..

    Heute wieder aufgefallen, die Dänen sind sehr freundlich und interessiert!! 😊 Man fühlt sich überall Willkommen. 🤗

    Für diese Nacht haben wir ein meegaa B&B gefunden. 😍😱 Schaut doch selber nach: Hos Mette ( www.hosmette.dk ). Liebenswerte Gastgeberin, sehr zum empfehlen!!

    Morgen gehts los auf die nächsten Inseln...

    Royal Bath Day for Prince Peter

    July 11, 2017 in Denmark ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Waking up to the sound of rain in the morning creates two feelings:-
    - mmmm! weather enforced lie-in! Snooze the alarm until the rain stops :)
    -Shhhh.. .. wet tent to pack :(

    Today's rain was particularly relentless, we had dried and packed all but the outer tent when the next downpour began. We moved into the newly-vacated shelter box to ride out the storm and to try and pack the tent. The nice part about our late departure was meeting a Danish walker, Jesper, who kindly made us a warm tea and gave us lots of native knowledge- the negative part was waiting until 3-30 for breakfast 😊 but when you're travelling you make your own rules which can mean chocolate for breakfast or 2 ice creams back to back. (Rules made by Peter Haupt).

    The rain stayed with us into the afternoon so we decided to turn in to one of the closer "legeplads" (the primitive free campsites). It was a good find, a handful of tents and an empty shelter box! We laid claim to the box and spent the rest of the afternoon chatting to our very cool 63 year old swedish camp neighbour , Mai, - travelling solo on a shopping bike (no gears!) with trailer. Despite being unable to help fulfil her herbal supply chain needs, she provided us with lots of useful info about these free campsites throughout Denmark. She also helpfully informed us of the availabilty of a warm shower down the road..., after i'd spent a cold ten minutes hopping about in the forest behind our shelterbox, washing my hair (with "hot" water Peter mixed into the cannister from the stove) 😨!

    Prince Peter then adjusted the shower making procedure and enjoyed a beautiful warm shower, fit for a king. I'm not jealous at all! ;)

    Goodnight from the spider box, in a field, up a hill, half way down Denmark!!.

    Day 460: Stevns Klint & Jelling

    May 20, 2018 in Denmark ⋅ 🌙 10 °C

    Long day of driving westwards across Denmark today. Stop number one was at Stevns Klint, a popular spot for locals to have beach trips. Not for us though - the "beach" was large smooth pebbles, and the World Heritage site here was an inch-thick black line running along a 20 metre cliff. This is where some people studying the cliff realised that black line coincided with 65 million years ago, and was rich in cosmic material - they realised a meteorite wiped out the dinosaurs. Interesting piece of scientific history, but not the most exciting place to visit.

    Back in the car where we crossed the long 20km bridge to the mainland of Europe, and then northwards to the town of Jelling. Here there's a couple of burial mounds that were intended for Harald Bluetooth's parents, but only one mound was used (and was eventually found to be empty anyway).

    There were also some runic stones, one from Harald's father Gorm dedicated to his wife, and the other from Harald himself bragging about unifying Denmark and Norway, and about converting the Danes to Christianity. It was an interesting spot this one, since it showed the line between pagan vikings and the Christian Danes. Also the first time "Denmark" had been used to describe the area, at least in writing!

    Another couple of hours driving where we arrived at the city of Esbjerg in the evening. Staying in a small spare room in the apartment of a lesbian couple; they're nice enough but there's a lot of shut doors. Oh well. Supermarket food for dinner!

    Schlafen im Shelter

    June 18, 2017 in Denmark ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Dänemark bietet unter dem Label 'back to nature' verschiedene Übernachtungsplätze ausserhalb von Campgrounds. Dazu zählen gewisse Waldabschnitte in welchen übernachten im Zelt erlaubt ist. Dies wollten wir natürlich ausprobieren. Unser erster Versuch endete allerdings bei einer Kindergartenstunde im Freien (wörtlich gemeint). Die BetreuerInnen waren etwas überrascht von unserer Idee dort zu schlafen, hatten aber nichts einzuwenden. Allerdings gab es kaum Platz für unser Zelt und wir entschlossen deshalb auf den nächsten Campingplatz weiterzufahren.

    Als Konsequenz davon recherchierten wir vor dem zweiten Versuch (so schnell geben wir uns nicht geschlagen) dann etwas ausführlicher und steuerten am nächsten Tag einen Shelter an. Dieser war zwar auf einer Seite offen, doch wir schliefen wunderbar darin und genossen das schöne Plätzchen.
