Last weekend we started our planned exploration of all 400 Danish islands. Only 70, more or less, are inhabited, so we may start with those. We went to a little island in the northwest of Sjaelland, where my coworker has a beautiful summer house. She was kind enough to let us go there for a nice weekend. It used to be a farm with a windmill. Ta-da:
I love the decor of the kitchen like crazy! Everything was blue.
We hiked by the light-house, by this beautiful beach. Needless to say, I did NOT bathe. I still don’t dare swim at this latitudes…I just admire the beauty of it, pick up lime stones and engage in unsuccessful amber-hunting sessions:
The hike wasn’t very long, but pretty dan-dreamy…
We kind of want to live in Chicken Road too!
Back at the house for a little nap on the trampoline, after much jumping:
And here and there you can find these great shop-boxes set up farmers by the side of the road where they live. Put your money in the can and get whatever you like. Something that in Italy wouldn’t last very long… Nobody controlling that you are not stealing the whole box with its content? What? Now I’m used to these little boxes, they are all over DK, but at first I was both fascinated and shocked.
Another tradition that I had no clue about: Danish churches have a ship model hanging inside. To protect the fishermen, I guess. On the island there’s a beautiful church from the medieval time. And its ship (pardon the bad quality of the pic):
That is one more island off the list!
