Return To Deutschland

July 3 - Vadehavs Camping to Husum The sun set on our final day in Denmark, although it wasn’t really dark, it was still very light, as the sun sank very slowly over the water. Dusk happens at about 11:00 pm and the moon doesn’t rise until 3:00 am, then the sun rise it at... Continue Reading →

Everything Went Sideways

July 2 - Ribe to Vadehavs Camping On these travels of ours, there is never a day when I don’t want to get on the bike and ride. Even when I’ve had no sleep and I’m tired or had a hard day the day before, I always want to go again the next day because... Continue Reading →

A Day For Young And Old

July 1 - Esbjerg to Ribe I might have mentioned that there’s a bit of wind in Denmark. Did I mention that fun fact? Well there is. As countries go, it’s bit on the blowy side, which when you’re on a bike, can either be great or most definitely not. We had a bit of... Continue Reading →

Go West…Wagons Roll!

June 30 - Copenhagen to Esbjerg Another leapfrog day. With one eye constantly on the calendar and our July deadline, we made the decision to do another leapfrog by rail. We are making our way towards The Netherlands and to do that we have to head South. We didn’t want to backtrack, we want to... Continue Reading →

I Think We Missed The Fine Print

June 29 - Copenhagen We decided today would be a day to simply take it slow, visit a part of Copenhagen in which we could spend some time, sitting and enjoying a slower paced day, being a local. That was the plan, and…well…it wasn’t quite the plan we’d planned. We had a map with a... Continue Reading →

Is The Wind Blowing Us Backwards?

June 27 - Koge to Copenhagen There’s a heat wave sweeping through Europe at the moment. It obviously hasn’t reached Denmark. It got cool during the evening, cooler over night and this morning, it was just cold! The wind had also decided to really make itself known and it blew like billy-o during the night...

“It Means Love In Russian”

June 26 - Faxe Ladeplads to Koge Cuckoo…cuckoo…cuckoo..cuckoo… No clock needed. I had the real thing. Fun fact, cuckoos do actually say cuckoo. Not an approximation of that sound, it is not onomatopoeia, they very distinctly and very clearly say, cuckoo!  No point lying around being sent slowly cuckoo myself with the chorus outside, so...

The Danes Do Detours Too

June 25 - Nykobing to Faxe Ladeplads We had a few extra turns, backtracking and assistance from helpful strangers again today. We may have left the umleitungs behind in Germany but the omvejs found us in Denmark. It was a detour day.  We packed up under another blue sky, with those spectacular wispy clouds scattered...

Research And Reconnaissance

June 24 - Marielyst to Nykobing Falster  I was up and off for a run at 5:00 this morning, the day already sunny and bright, but no one else about on the quiet country road, except for the occasional bus. The drivers and I exchanged waves and I happily plodded on beside the fields. Steve... Continue Reading →
