May 22, 2016 - Denmark - A Land Of Many Farts And Lawnmowers

We spent one night in Germany before crossing the border and visited the quayside town of Flensborg. Flensborg is the last town before crossing into Denmark. Nothing remarkable about it other than to mention across the main town street were cables full of shoes hanging from their laces. We have no idea why people would do this, most shoes appear to be trainers, the laces had been tied and then thrown over the cable leaving them just hanging there. So finally new territory for us as we crossed the border into Denmark. Our first impressions...

Jun 14, 2014 - A quiet day

After several days of exploring we thought we would have a quiet day. After doing a shop in the morning(the grocery stores in Denmark are far better than in Germany)it was such a lovely day we decided to do one of the local walks from the campground. It was a lovely walk through the countryside and then along the sea shore. Of course the "children" had to stop and have an ice cream (Daisy's favourite rest stop!)before heading back to the campground.

Jun 13, 2014 - Froslevlejren, Tonder and Mogeltonder

We woke up to rather grey skies so we decided to visit Froslevlejren Museum in Padborg on the Danish/German border. This museum is on the site of and tells the story of the German Froslev internment camp. The camp was built in 1944 following negotiations by then Danes with Germany to keep Danish POW in Denmark and run by the German Security Police. Although some 12,000 prisoners were interned in the camp some 1600 prisoners were in fact deported to Germany. The Froslev Camp was unique as the Germans accepted that the Danish Prison...

Jun 12, 2014 - Some coast and Sonderborg

After a day of orientating ourselves (finding where the local shops were etc.) we headed out, south along the coast to Sonderborg. Our drive took us through rolling countryside, by pretty bays or fjords and small villages. We also discovered that the Danish roads were excellent and had very little traffic on them. It was a real pleasure to drive along. After several stops to admire the views we arrived at Sonderborg. Sonderborg history goes back to 1169 when Valdemar I erected a castle fortress along the waterfront. Over time the castle was...

Jun 10, 2014 - Into Denmark

We headed north once again. This time we crossed into Denmark and headed to a campground near the town of Haderslev but on the coast at a small place called Arosund. We had contacted them and they said they could accommodate our “big rig”. The roads to the campground were no problem and the entrance wide and easy to manoeuvre. However their normal pitches were a little short for us although large width ways so in the end they agreed that there would be no problem in us parking parallel across two pitches. They were not very busy. Later on...

Jul 11, 2012 - Sonderborg Guided Tour

Bent and Vivi had sshown us a lot about Denmark and had taken us to some of the cities both near and far. What we discovered was that the town we liked best was their very own. Sonderborg. They wanted an opportunity to show us some more of the local flavour so Bent took us on a guided tour of the town and the immediate surroundings. It was very personal and we found it enjoyable. We walked to the harbour in the morning to check out the shops on the plaza that went through the middle of the town. The harbour was alive with activity. The...

Jul 8, 2012 - Through Germany and into Denmark

From Schiedam in The Netherlands to Sonderborg in Denmark We woke at 5:00 am. Whose idea that was, we’ll never know. Nobody would own up to it. It was going to be just the four of us. Riekie, Rob, Lidwien and I. We were pretty much packed and after Riekie made cheese and ham rolls for the trip and we grabbed things like the phone chargers and toothbrushes, we were ready to get underway. By 6:45 we were heading for the motorway. The traffic would have been described as “light” if there had been any at all. We saw the occasional jogger and...

Jun 26, 2012 - Around Sonderborg

Went to look at Dybbol Mill on the outside. We drove up around the back way and the poppies are beautiful. Stopped on the way home back out to take some pictures of them. Then we went to Ulkebol Kirke - the church where the boys were baptized ande confirmed. It's all white, inside and out. The hymn numbers are hung on tiny nails. All the confirmaton classses pictures are hanging around the wall in the education room. We also looked at the graveyard. Then drove on to Grasten Slot to look at the gardens there and to see the church where...

There are sections about energy, the human body, science shows, great playgrounds. There's a building called the “Blue Cube” which includes exhibits from Iceland's...

Jun 19, 2012 - Copenhagen to Sonderborg and catching up

Sunday, June 17, 2012 Got great stuff at the bakery again, cleaned the the apartment, took the bus to the central train station and put our bags in lockers. We went to the Carlsburg Brewery and took the tour. You no longer see any part of the actual brewery, so it's not really worth it . The exhibits are nice, but it's not that great. The elephant statues are neat, though. Went to Christianborg Slot in the Town Hall Square. Christanborg Slot (Palace) is a royal building used by the Queen for royal functions like the New Year's Assembly and...

Mar 10, 2010 - people film music festivals weddings memorials

"As the People's Republic of China celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2009, the country's film industry continued to flourish with record-setting blockbusters. Anniversary tribute film ""The Founding of a Republic"", for example, took little effort to become the highest-grossing Chinese-language film ever. In the meantime, top Chinese filmmaker Zhang Yimou was back after a three-year absence from the big screen, although his latest work was not favored by all. Globally, the year 2009 has given us big surprises with such sensations as Susan...

Jan 31, 2010 - One Week Down Already! :(

I can't believe that I have been here a week already. It seems like such a short time, yet so long at the same time! As soon as I arrived here at Krusmølle, Fredrik my 14 year old host brother asked me if I had any plans for the day. Of course I didn't so he suggested we go out in the snow. It was awesome. I donned some gear that they had, a lovely blue jacket, ski pants and uggies and then headed out to brave the cold. I couldn't believe that they wore uggies outside! I usually wear them inside! It was heaps of fun in the snow, but rather...
