Nyborg Beach

Fresh Sea Air

By | 0 Comments

It usually takes us 9 – 10 hours to drive from Brussels to Nyborg, Denmark. This cosy town is situated in the north of the central island of Funen; this is where Lars and I start most of our excursions. The first thing I want to do after a long drive is to go to the beach; watch the waves, feel…

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…

… not the same as a visiting a Belgian church. I still remember my first visit to a church in Denmark with Lars. My beloved had taken me to Roskilde, where we going to have a look at the cathedral, which belongs to the UNESCO World Heritage List. I was looking forward to this visit, since I could only associate…

A different Denmark – Walking hand in hand in the snow

A couple of weeks ago I read a very surprising newspaper article. Apparently, we Belgians don’t like to show our affection to our beloved in public. And we don’t like it either when we see other people showing their affection to each other in public. We are talking about very basic stuff like walking hand in hand, a kiss on…

A different Denmark – The castle we had neglected for such a long time

By | 0 Comments

I am referring to Nyborg Slot. Numerous times Lars and I have been to Nyborg and every time we simply never had a look at it. What a shame! First of all, this castle has an interesting history. I found this information on their website: Nyborg Castle was built in the 1170s, probably by a Christian Wendish prince in Danish…

A different Denmark – Stretching our legs

By | 11 Comments

Since we had spent the whole of Tuesday on the road, Lars and I thought it would be a good idea the day afterwards to stretch our legs a bit. So off we went to the center of Nyborg. Until then, we had always been at the harbor and the beach. You have seen numerous pictures of these places in…

A different Denmark – Dreaming of summer

By | 6 Comments

Our last stop was at the beach of Nyborg. It was partly covered with snow; it was sometimes difficult to see where the snow ended and the sand begun! I loved the light since sunset was approaching. I have to admit that January and February are the most difficult months for me. In November and December the weather can be…
