A different Denmark – Back to Nyborg Harbor


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…

Back to Helnæs


Helnæs is a small peninsula in the south of Funen, which we discovered last summer: https://goo.gl/maps/m1Urj On Friday 2 November we went back. The weather had slightly improved so I decided to photograph in color again. Our first stop was at the dam that links Helnæs with Funen. I love the views here! The sea, the sky and the small islands are…

Creepy Travels – The remains of the car ferry harbor in Nyborg


The car ferry link between Funen and Zealand was established in 1930 and also ceased to exist when the bridge was constructed. People preferred the bridge anyway, since most of the car ferries hadn’t been able to deal with the capacity problems, due to the increasing car traffic. Moreover, in the 1990s – when the bridge was being constructed –…

Creepy Travels – The abandoned railway ferry harbor in Nyborg


It is the 15th today, so that means it’s time again for the Creepy Travels! This time we found something interesting in Denmark. Nowadays, when you want to travel from Funen to Zealand, you can drive on the Great Belt Bridge, which was built between 1991 and 1998: https://goo.gl/maps/gteja Before the bridge, there were car and railway ferries between the…

Our Adaptable Adventure – The castle at the outskirts of town


One of the main attractions in Nyborg is Nyborg Slot. Every time we stay with The Viking’s mother, we decide to visit it, but somehow we never succeed in doing so. And unfortunately, this summer trip was no exception either. But we did visit another one: Holckenhavn Castle. This castle lies in the outskirts of Nyborg. The name Holck refers…

Our Adaptable Adventure – A romantic walk in Nyborg harbor


You don’t need to buy something expensive or do something extraordinary to remind your partner of your love for him or her! Usually, simple things like a walk at sunset at the waterside are very romantic as well. At least, for us they are! When The Viking and I go for a walk in the harbor of Nyborg, we often…

What else did we do and see during Sankt Hans Aften?


You can hardly look for bonfires without having had a nice snack before. Around 8pm The Viking, his mother and I were at the dining table, making and eating shrimp sandwiches with mayonnaise and lemon. In a fancy restaurant you would pay at least 30 euros for such a meal. We saved a lot of money by preparing everything ourselves,…

Looking for bonfires in Kerteminde


Late Saturday afternoon, we had become a bit pessimistic about seeing any Midsummer bonfires at all. With all the rain that day, The Viking and I were quite convinced that the weather would be too bad and especially too wet. But around 7pm, it happened! It being the weather change we had been hoping for! Gone were the clouds, rain…
