Well that is stating the obvious isn’t it. But when I imagine Denmark…what I saw and experienced was just how I imagined it.
The food…lots of fish and rye bread. Tick.
Harbours with fishing boats. Tick.
Colourful houses. Tick.
Bikes. Bikes. Bikes. Tick.
Hans Christian Anderson. Tick.
Tivoli Gardens. Tick.
I didn’t imagine Dark and Stormy! But then I had never had a Dark and Stormy before, until Richard and Birgitte introduced us to them. The most deliciously dangerous drink. Take some dark rum, fresh mint, lime juice and ice. Shake in a tumbler. Add ginger beer. Try to drink slowly but I bet you won’t be able to. It is divine!
Had a chance to share some of my books with the students at the International School that Richard Page teaches at.
And we saw a troll!
Thanks Richard, Birgitte, Thomas and Molly for a wonderful visit to your homeland!
