A different Denmark – Bytoften


Lars’s mother thought it would be a good idea to have a look at Bytoften near Langeskov. And so we did: But what exactly is this Bytoften? I found some more information on this website: In 1979, archaeologists from museums on Funen and from the former Odense University found traces in the earth of villages and farms near Røjerup Bog…

A different Denmark – On the road to Helnæs


Helnæs is a peninsula which Lars and I discovered last summer: I found more information about this peninsula on www.visitdenmark.com: Helnæs has been inhabited since the Stone Age. Five burial mounds dominate the landscape in the hills south of Maden. Helnæs is first mentioned in historical records in 1231 as “Hælghænæs” (sacred promontory). Take the narrow road embankment out to…

Our first day of our holiday was a coming to an end. Time to go back to Nyborg and have a look at its harbor. Do you remember that there used to be a railway ferry harbor and a car ferry harbor here? These two harbors are almost completely gone, only a few traces are left. Instead a lot yachts…

But Faaborg itself does have a little gem, which tends to be overlooked.…

Our Adaptable Adventure – A stop in Torø Huse


About 5 kilometers to the south of Assens lies the small fishing village of Torø Huse. Small indeed, since it has about 200 inhabitants. Just the kind of place that The Viking and I like so much! We went straight to the beach and sat down on a bench. It was so calm and peaceful. Just a couple of people…

Our Adaptable Adventure – Assens: Where our first impression was wrong


Friday 20 July. The Viking and I have a look at the map of Denmark and we realize that until then, we have neglected the west-side of Fyn. Time to change this and we decide to start our exploration in Assens. https://goo.gl/maps/2IJz2 When we arrive in the center of this small town, we are not impressed. I don’t know what…

Our Adaptable Adventure – The star of Tåsinge


Tåsinge is a small island to the south of Fyn/Funen. Most people flock to the beautiful small town of Troense and especially to Valdemars Castle. This small palace was built in the 17th century. It is open for visitors from May to October and has a toy museum, a chapel, a restaurant and a local maritime museum. Another important feature…
