Our Adaptable Adventure – Grenen: Where we were tourists


Usually, The Viking and I avoid touristic attractions. But sometimes, you have to make an exception, because there are places that you simply must see or events that you have to experience. Such a place is Grenen. Since we had free lodgings and since we had chosen to do self-catering, we could spend almost half of our budget to fuel.…

Our Adaptable Adventure – The beginning of a historical day


Wednesday 18 July was mainly dedicated to history. The Viking and I decided to leave Fyn/Funen for one day and go to the south of Jutland, which used to belong to Germany. We will write more about this part of history tomorrow. We started our tour in Hejlsminde. This used to be an old border-town between Germany and Denmark. Nowadays, it’s…

Skagen and surroundings


One of the regions we hadn’t visited yet, but were dreaming of, was the North of Jutland. So we packed our bags and left Nyborg early this morning, drove through Fyn and then to Frederikshavn. The drive between Aalborg and the North of Jutland is not particularly exciting, but the beauty of Skagen makes you quickly forget that: there is…

The Awesome Trip – Central Jutland


The Viking and his Kitten also visited the central part of the Jutland. Just like the day before we went straight to Esbjerg, but instead of going south we drove to the north to Ringkobing Fjord. The area was a lot more touristic than we had imagined – holiday homes in every dune – which was a bit disappointing. We…
