Throwback Thursday – Blue Helnæs

By | 3 Comments

This is actually a combination of Throwback Thursday and Wordless Wednesday since this is more of a photo essay. Helnæs is a small peninsula in the south of Denmark – the south of Funen to be more precise – and is a paradise for people who are into fishing and bird-watching. And now I let the pictures speak for themselves.

The South Funen Archipelago – Part 2

By | 0 Comments

Finally… back for part 2! Lars and I have been away for 2 days – we were in Eupen, to be more precise – and we enjoyed ourselves a lot, even though the weather sucked. Keep an eye on our Instagram feed! Troense is one of our favourite places on the island of Tåsinge. This town is small and picturesque and has…

The South Funen Archipelago – Part 1

By | 2 Comments

This is a part of Denmark that Lars and I had visited before by car, but never by boat! So, on a sunny Saturday afternoon at the end of May, we enjoyed a mini-cruise of 2 hours on the MS Helge, a vintage vessel.

Ingrid and I decided to go for a long drive, to Møn. This small island is known for its cliff; since we had already seen this, we were curious if Møn had something else to…

Nakkebølle Fjord

Another Bay

By | 0 Comments

If you look at the map I inserted in the former post, you can clearly see Nakkebølle Fjord. In Denmark, the word “fjord” has different meanings. Forget the majestic Norwegian fjords; in Denmark a small inlet of water or a bay can be called a fjord. The word Nakkebølle on the other hand refers to a nearby estate with the same name.…

Svelmø

Big and Small

By | 0 Comments

I am referring to Store (Big) and Lille (Small) Svelmø, two uninhabited islands to the south of Funen, not far from Faaborg.   Our GPS didn’t know any of the two islands, so Lars and I had to drive around for more than half an hour before we found them. And once we did, we felt overjoyed since the place was…
