Whitsun trip to Denmark

What to do over the Whitsun weekend? Go on a trip to Denmark with a good friend! There and back again in 23 hours ;-)

(yes, I have cut my hair short again - and happy with the decision!) We left rainy Oslo early Saturday evening

and spent a good part of the evening at the boat's SPA - I could live in there, no problem!!!


Afterwards we went for a yummy meal - I had the guinea fowl and Leisha had the brown trout - it was sooo delicious!

The evening was finished in the shop - stacking up on snacks and figuring out what we were going to buy on our way home. After a restless night due to unfamiliar beds and lots of noise from party-people and the engine we woke to a lovely morning in Frederikshavn, the sun was out but there was a slight chill in the air. But of course we had to go exploring.

Being Sunday morning, and Whitsun weekend, there wasn't much life around, so we missed some of the city's atmosphere, but we walked around for a good hour and a half enjoying the architecture, and we actually managed to spend a little money *lol*

We had a good run getting back to the boat in time, but we made it

Once we had watched Denmark disappear in the horizon, had a quick breakfast, we actually had a looooong nap *lol* Getting up we did our last shopping, and while watching the coast of Norway appear along the boat side

we had a quick pasta meal - it tasted better than it looked

and figured out how to play "Pillars of the Earth: Builder's Duel" - I enjoyed it, but for now I prefer the board game - might be more fun once we get into the rules a bit more

Hope everyone has enjoyed their Whitsun weekend!

Sounds like a wonderful, fun filled, little sleep week-end with a good friend. What more could you ask for? Enjoyed all the lovely pictures.
