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.

Pannkosh, the big Danish pancake fly-in

We weren't sure to do one gray Sunday and we wanted to catch up with Lars, who said why not come to the big pancake fly-in. At the mention of pancakes I was sold.

Pannkosh is held the last Sunday each month over summer and all proceeds go to a Danish childrens charity. There are two pans and a whole heap of batter and jam and you go for it.

It is held at Revninge airstrip, near Odense and we were given a very warm welcome by the owner and his wife (who gave me a lace Danish heart she.makes herself - currently adorning my jacket, although it needs a little more starch after a couple of weeks).

Pannkosh is the brainchild of Bo 'crazy dane' Ronnow, who does a lot of charity work as well as aviation work: when we met him it was a week before a trip of 30 microlights up to the Finnish islands off the Stockholm archipelago.
