Nyborg Harbor

By | 5 Comments

Lars’s mother lives very close to the harbor of Nyborg, so we often go there for a walk. This is not exactly an industrial harbor; most of the boats are yachts and pleasure boats in all shapes and sizes. It’s just a pity that this whole area is being invaded by expensive apartments. Every time Lars and I come here…

Nyborg Fjord

By | 17 Comments

This is without any doubt my favorite place in Nyborg. In February I was simply freezing when I took my pictures here. Three months later the weather conditions had greatly improved and I could take my time. And I wasn’t trembling! I like the tranquility of this place: the small boats, the absence of waves, the birds, the intense blue…

Our next stop was at Lundeborg. Only about 400 people live here. The main points of interests are the beach and the small harbor that hosts fishing boats and small yachts. In summer it can be quite busy here, but now there was nobody around. Just the kind of solitude that we like so much… When we arrived in Lundeborg,…

Did you know that there are more than 400 (named) islands in Denmark? Not all of them are inhabited. Some are connected to one of the main islands by bridges, other can only be  reached by boat/ferry.

A long Danish weekend – The other side of Thurø

By | 7 Comments

What I love about Thurø, is the peace and quiet. And I am not the only one! Although it is small and it has less to offer – in terms of entertainment – than some of the bigger Danish islands, it does attract tourists. And there are a couple of b &b’s and campsites on Thurø. You can also rent a house.…

When The Viking and I walked around in the medieval center of Yvoire, we simply couldn’t believe our eyes. Such beauty! It was so charming and pretty and there was a soothing, tranquil atmosphere. And then we arrived at the border of the lake, Lake Leman that is: Lake Geneva or Lake Léman (French: Lac Léman, Léman, German: Genfersee) is a lake in Switzerland and France. It is one…
