    Cruising through Legoland

    July 9, 2017 in Denmark ⋅ 🌙 13 °C

    Today's route was a gem, EuroVelo 3 for the most part with a bit of Peter freestyle at the end. We had a castle, lakes, forest, meadow, farms, ponds, a ford, cottages and of course, churches. Day 3 of Denmark and we're finding our stride. Danish scenery differs lots from Sweden as does the building style. Danes love their utilitarian squares; blocky churches, square houses with square windows etc..its a very minimal modern style which is nice but not quite as "cosy" or warm looking as most swedish dwellings.

    We set off from our airbnb house in Aalborg freshly showered and with ALL clothes washed- we haven't been this clean for over 2 months! 😂 (Ps if anyone is new to airbnb and makes a booking, let us know. We can send a referral link so we and you both get some money off!)

    We're taking advantage of another free "legeplads" today - the abundant free but basic campsites all over Denmark. This one has a big "dog kennel" wooden hut with an open front. Peter (aka "Mowgli" ) convinced me that we should stay in the "spider box" so I'm here writting this blog swatting off a mosquito from my face and hands every 20 seconds! I have a feeling its going to be a buzzy, bitey night!
