This was always going to be a bit of a mission of a trip starting with the ferry from Norway over to Denmark, through Germany and onto Italy. In Germany, I managed to cut a few corners on the trip taking the scenic and empty minor roads in favour of the autobahn. However, I was […]
Making the most of the fine weather, took a walk out to the northernmost tip of Denmark at Grenen. I was a little surprised by the number of other people who had the same idea! Took a detour off the main route and with no one else in sight, found these randomly parked up on […]
