Jun 27, 2012 - Off to the ferry

Packed and loaded up and headed out for the last time. We went to see Rasmus's school, first. The whole school had gone off on a camping trip, but Casper took us on a tour, as he had attended the same school two years ago. Then we drove on and were able to meet up with the travelers at the site where they were going to set up for the night. (They are traveling by bike.) We said goodbye to Rasmus and went on to Hojer to look at the dikes that hold back the sea and then on to Ribe. Ribe was founded in 700 AD; the Cathedral is from, 1110,...

Sep 19, 2011 - Out of season

Since arriving in Denmark I've been under no illusions that I'm travelling well out of season. I made excellent progress after disembarking from the ferry, getting to within a few hundred metres of that night's intended camp. Unfortunately, that short distance involved an 'on demand' ferry which couldn't be demanded after 17.50. I'd arrived at 18.20. I had a vexing problem: the last restaurant I passed was 30 miles back, the last campsite and garage about 20. I backtracked a bit, taking other roads, managed to buy some bread and cheese and...

Jun 26, 2010 - Esbjerg: Ferry to Blighty!

This time we're travelling from the north end of Denmark and decide to avoid motorways as we have plenty of time and have only really seen the country from the perspective of motorways and services. We take a route across country to the West coast and pass through some very rural areas with seemingly random industrial towns dotted about. Our route takes us through a so called nature reserve, more accurately it is miles and miles of sandy beach, dunes and a massive lagoon with holiday homes and appartments going up all over the place, a...

Jun 6, 2010 - Denmark: Land of the long bridges

Arrived in Esbjerg at 1pm and were on our way 10 minutes later. Why can't airports work this well? We didn't really see too much of the country as it was Motorway all the way into Sweden. Crossing West to East like this one can easily believe that Denmark is really a collection of islands (it isn't) linked by the most spectacular bridges. They Just go on forever!

Sep 5, 1976 - Esbjerg to Harwich

We were up at 6.30 and had breakfast, then we were off for Esbjerg. We caught a ferry at 10.15 approx., which took about 50 minutes so we had an early lunch on the boat. Then we had another drive to Odense where we stopped to see Hans Christian Anderson's house, and then we went on to cross another stretch of water, by bridge this time, and arrived in Esbjerg about 2.30pm. We had to wait till 4.30 till we could board the ferry and sailed about 5.30pm. We spend until 8.15 in the bar with a group of others then went into dinner which was a...
