Northern Denmark and sailing off to Norway

After a nice breakfast in the dunes near Tornby I went to the harbour of Hirtshals to check out the availability of ferry tickets to Kristiansand. The plan was to sail off the next day and spend an other night at this nice spot in the dunes. After gaining the required information the conclusion was that sailing off the same day would be cheaper, probably because it’s a Thursday and not a Friday. So a ticket was bought for the evening ferry. Enough time was left to check out Skagen, a cute though touristy town in the north eastern tip of Denmark.

Along the Wadden Sea

After waking up I quickly left the road side parking area to find myself a better place to have breakfast. I ended up at a nice parking along the Wadden Sea, if only I knew of this spot before, as it would have been a much better place to spend the night. There were some picknick tables and a great view over the Wadden. Well, at least I enjoyed a a nice breakfast here.

Disappointment in Odense and Rømø

Today didn’t really meet my expectations, unfortunately. I started the morning at the nice beach side spot where I spend last night and went to visit Odense, the birthplace of Hans Christian Andersen. Unfortunately the whole city centre was under construction. Not a single piece was kept untouched.

The childhood home of Hans Christian Andersen, also under construction.

Visiting Copenhagen

This morning I took te bicycle to check out the city. First I went to the statue of the Little Mermaid or Den Lille Havfrue, which was on the way to the city centre. Of course busses full of tourists were dropped of and the little statue barely visible. Just a bit further, in a small park, a statue of man drying him self didn’t receive any attention.

I continued my ride downtown and checked out the city for the rest of the day
