Day and night in Copenhagen

Wow – yesterday was a great last day on this trip…
In the morning I’ve started with a guided tour which was exciting – Roger, our guide from Britain was excellent and really funny and you got lot of backgrounds you wouldn’t get from a book!

The free walking tour through Copenhagen

After these 3 hours of walking I enjoyed some of the fantastic things to eat you can find all around and jumped into the evening with an open air jazz concert next to the river in a ‘ kind like a beach bar’…

Walking around and letting out the ‘most disappointing tourist attraction’ – the mermaid – I’ve looked around the pulsing city.

image

And of course I’ve visited ‘Christiania’ – but there are the rules:
1. No photos 2. Don’t run
3. Enjoy live
So this is just the entrance…

image

And finally I’ve been to a great concert and stayed there with some wonderful people having a great night…a perfect last evening.

Three Kings, From London To Barcelona

Wow – great Tour – have to check it out in detail when I’m back home again! 😀

CyclingEurope.org

Here are three guys who cycled along a similar route to me but from London Barcelona taking in large chunks of my 2010 journey from England to Italy and then my 2013 across southern France and into Spain. I wrote books about my adventures; these chaps have made a documentary. The full film is being launched at Look Mum No Hands! in London on Thursday 10th July at 8:30pm. The title of the film is Tres Reges (Three Kings in Spanish), their website is here and they are also on FacebookTwitter and Instagram. It looks fun! Here is the trailer:

“In July 2012, three best buddies, Callum, Chris & Josh, embarked on a five week tour of Europe, the only way they knew how, on a bicycle. Starting in London and ending in Barcelona, this film follows the three men on a journey across Holland, Belgium, Luxembourg…

My last long cycling day

I’m lying in my tent after having a nice dinner from the gas cooker and a great chat with a cycling couple from switzerland.

I can’t believe that this was the last day of ‘real cycling’ with about 90 km – tomorrow I’m going to ride to Køge and take the train (hopefully, because my train app says that there is probably a bus instead a train because of works on the track)

Nevertheless I’ve allowed myself an outstanding and excessively luxury which I haven’t had the last the weeks – not to set the alarm clock!

It was a great trip with really friendly people I’ve met and I got to know some new ways of life.

Now I’m looking forward to explore the eco-capitol of Europe…M.

From Marielyst to the natural highlight

After having left the campsite this morning I met a german couple from Warren which I travelled already through. The man had a recumbentbike and they were heavy loaded. They had started also a 3 weeks trip but didn’t knew exactly where to go…nice chat!

image

Than I had only a short visit to the castle Corselitze with wonderful gardens.

image

Now I had to hurry up as my ferry didn’t go so often – a old, wooden one which brings you from Stubbekøbing to Bogø.

image

Having reached the other site I found an outstanding church with paintings from an unknown painter from the early 15. century, the church itself from about 1200 a.c.

image

image

Rolling on the street I had a marvelous sandy beach but the water was to cold to jump in.

image

In the end I’ve visited the natural highlight of Denmark – Møns Klint.
It’s a 8 km long white cliff like on the german island Rügen.

image

image

image

So tomorrow will be my last long-term travelday with about 90 km – and than a train will bring me after 40 km into the middle of the heart of Kopenhagen! Can’t believe it! M.

Crossing Lolland entering Falster

Well, this day was filled up with memories of yesterday, the ferry and the wonderful hostel…

I’ve started with a marvelous breakfast and had a long chat with an older couple.
Afterwards I started my 95 km-cycling accompanied by the sun – the whole day! – and enjoyed the flatness of the island. Quick and easy traveling!

So I’ve visited a small chapel and a viewpoint were you got an outstanding landscape in front of you.

image

image

image

On my way would have been also a famous Safari Park but as I knew already it would have taken me a whole day to discover – and I’ve seen something similar in France last year in Sigean at the Mediterranean Sea.

image

So now I’m going to have a look at the beach and finish the day a little bit earlier than the last days. M.

Fyn, Langeland and hopping over to Lolland

This morning was really hard to start cycling as the hostel with it’s hosts were so friendly.
First stop was the city Faaborg with the harbour.

image

And I’ve seen the guys from my hostel – now in action.

image

After that I had to cross another big bridge, but no strong wind pulled me aside like on Fehmarn.

image

On my way to Langeland I’ve visited Waldemars Slut.

image

Well hidden in the woods you can find a small private museum, the ‘tabakladen’ – until the war tobacco was planted here and was sold in the country add import wasn’t allowed.

image

The 'tabakladen' - that's to my girls on my unit;-)

As I’ve been making good progress today I decided to take already this evening the ferry to Lolland and sleep again in a hostel as the clouds were again very dark and I could spare the time for the ferry and about 10 km next day.

On the last of the easy 110 km I had a fantastic scenery.

And finally after having cooked the portion which is usually for my son and me, the day said God bye with an outstanding sun go down – and laid the first time in my hammock!

Entering the world of islands – Fyn

Today I had a nice chat with the guy from the youthhostel in Frederica who worked already several years in Germany.
I left the city in dry conditions and cycled the smaller bridge over to the island of Fyn.

image

The landscape changed, it was a little bit like the southern coast of England – beautiful!

image

Afterwards I met a couple from the Netherlands with a ‘Ligge cykel’ – how they call a recumbent bike in this country.

image

Finally after about 90 km I arrived in this wonderful small hostel in Faldsled where I got a great dinner – as it was fully booked with cyclists who participate tomorrow in a race next to this town.

The oldest building of the hostel complex is from 1695, the other parts ‘just’ 100 years old.

image

And now I’m sitting in the garden with a great view and a sun go down. M.

Chill out in Frederica

Can’t believe it… I’m sitting in a kind of lounge with a beer after enjoying a little spa including sauna, jacuzzi and swimming!

But let’s start from the morning…the sun was here again, I could dry my clothes and had breakfast with a perfect outlook to the Baltic Sea.

After having packed my stuff together I started off and find some sights along the way…

image
A small chapel from 1725 on my way

image

Today I’ve cycled also many times along the sea which is not normal on this path.

image

But as you can see the sun went again at about 2 pm and came back – at 8:30 h pm!

In the meantime there were several times thunder (the ‘thunder song’ from ‘Ted the film’ didn’t help ;-)) and I found shelter in a school gym where I had lunch.

I’ve started again – and than the rain started also – as they say on the island ‘like cats and dogs’ – so I decided not to camp but to go to the youthhostel in Frederica – and luckily I phoned them in advance – if I didn’t they would have been closed already when I was arriving.
Good luck.

image

And than came the highlight as I mentioned already on the link to the hostel – free spa!

So tomorrow I’m going to take my ‘day off’ and have a closer look to the ancient town. M

Cool place to stay – Frederica Danhostel

Today I’ve arrived here completely wet and the guy at the reception was very helpful!
It’s like a lounge here with balcony and a kind of living room – of course more expensive than Germany but much more comfortable…
But the big advantage – next to it there is a public swimming pool with sauna, bio sauna and jacuzzi as well as a area for kids – and as a guest of the hostel entrance is free!

So after a rainy day it’s perfect to recreate…Special opening times!
