About Me

My photo
We are now in Oz after two amazing years of traveling Europe in our home built plane. We met many fantastic people who we are proud to call friends and have gained a much better understanding of the similarities and differences between the cultures of the different European states as well as the history and geography that have lead to these differences. We enjoy meeting people with similar interests to ourselves and learning more about other cultures. Please let us know if you're going to be in Queensland and would like to catch up for a meal and a chat.

Day 6: Bornholm

I was determined to make it to Svaneke. And we did, but got the bus back.... Most of the ride was through a big pine forest in the centre of the island, which is really lovely, especially in the really remarkably sunny weather we've been having. Svaneke itself was pretty, but pretty full of tourists, so we kept going pretty quickly. 

Forest cycle way

When the bus brought us back to the main town, Ronne, we went for a walking tour in one of my brochures – lots of lovely half timbered houses with massive rosebushes and maybe tree peonies growing out of little holes in the cobblestones. The brochure struggled a bit to find much more than a 1915 church and lots of pretty cobblestoned streets lined with half-timbered houses, but they did their best.

I got a big chunk of wacky Danish cheese, which I'm not too thrilled about, but Julian seems to like it. I also had some with carraway, but what Julian didn't eat last night, the hedgehog took care of in several long bouts of noisy licking.... I was curious at the time as to what piece of plastic it had bitten into at one point: turned out to be Julian's peanut packet...

Mmmm wacky Danish cheese in the eating area of the camp ground
