Train Trip: 10 days, 5 countries

By | April 27th, 2016|

Train travelling remains the most authentic, scenic and romantic way of exploring the world. Personally, I can’t help thinking of Jules Verne’s “Around the World in 80 Days”. Even if nowadays the cost of travelling by train is quite disappointing, there is still a budget way to have a great train trip. (more…)

Stopover in Torshavn, Faroe Islands

By | February 21st, 2016|

In the previous post we told you about our sad ferry experience... However, there was a shining positive moment: 6 hours in Torshavn. Despite horrible wind, grey sky and non-stopping seasick we were enchanted by this little town and swore to come back, but not by ferry :) So here are several shots of this windy paradise… (more…)

From Iceland by Ferry: the Perfect Hell

By | February 18th, 2016|

I hate that day when we decided to come back to the continent, and more exactly, to Hirtshals in Denmark by ferry. I hate it. Why on Earth did we listen to people claiming that it was genius and wonderful? Lies!

But let’s start from the beginning. Since we had no box anymore to transport our tandem, an idea came to us that probably it would be much easier and safer for the bike to leave Iceland by ferry. In addition to this, so many people eagerly advised us trying it, that finally the fatal decision was taken.  (more…)

Our awesome journey through Sweden continued in the train till Helsingborg, where we took a ferry to Danish version of the town – Helsingør. Bravo ! (more…)

Skagen: Where the Two Seas Meet

By | August 12th, 2015|

Continental part of Denmark that looks like an octopus head is called Jutland. It was such a pleasure to ride through! Almost no traffic; and you have to cross magically beautiful forests. So sad that we were lacking of time, so we sacrificed Jelling, as well as Legoland even though Xavier still passionately collects Lego! Thanks God, that Skagen covers it all… (more…)

Visiting the Fairy Tale in Odense

By | August 9th, 2015|

That was a difficult day. Unbearable heat, after seven days of cycling, we started clearly feeling pain in the ass.

However, despite these inconveniences we still decided to make a dozen of kilometres more to see one of the most beautiful Renaissance castles of Europe – Egeskov castle. (more…)

Fanø: Northern Beauty

By | July 11th, 2015|

When I hear the word «Denmark» I imagine at once two things – Skagen and Fanø. It’s just so stunningly beautiful even when it rains so heavily. Severe northern nature in modest colours. We were told that there are loads of seals living there, but obviously we weren’t lucky – the only one we saw was a semi-putrid corpse. But we saw several roes instead in the middle of the towns!

The Colours of Ærø

By | July 10th, 2015|

We were strongly advised to visit Ærø that was presented as the most beautiful one among Fyn islands. On a huge ferry during 1.5 hours, we were sailing to the island. One of the reasons why we are completely crazy about Scandinavian countries is the power of their landscapes. You really can feel the nature’s superiority over the human, and in this case the nature is not tender, but cold and severe. On this ferry crossing the waves of the Baltic Sea, the heart was full of joy and veneration. (more…)

Møn Island: is it really Denmark?

København – Præstø

From Copenhagen we headed to the South. A separate cycling road was leading till a town named Køge – a quite pleasant town for a stop by the way… (more…)

9 places to see in Copenhagen

By | July 8th, 2015|

Logical start of our Denmark adventure is Copenhagen! Copenhagen is just like Stockholm – you fall in love with immediately! It is a city that breathes with health and well-being. Beautiful people, beautiful streets, beautiful buildings and, God, so many bicycles. Scandinavian dream in reality – people are jogging, do not smoke, hang around everywhere with their blond-angelic-children – shortly speaking – idyll. Even for jogging they use special prams for taking kids with! Looking at this, it seems logic why the Danes consider themselves as the happiest people on our planet. The city is big enough to be spacious for the thousands of tourists; one can walk there for hours, both in the old town and modern districts that could seem too modern, by the way. (more…)

TanDenmark: How to cycle around in two weeks?

By | July 7th, 2015|

Finally  we are ready to become officially the members of cycling community! Now the short rides to the beach and back are over! From now on we are pride owners of a tremendous tandem, and the choice of the destination for our first serious biking trip was easy – Denmark. Of course, a flat country, small sized, perfect infrastructure – ready to go. And Denmark turned out to be absolutely fantastic. It has stunning variety of landscapes for such a small country, about which we used to know literally nothing apart from Little Mermaid… (more…)
