A trip to northern Europe

First

Denmark bordering Germany is a small country in the north. Denmark is a country with a long and interesting history, it is a kingdom that has been involved in many historical movements over the years. In addition, many kingdoms near Denmark attempted to invade that country. Another neighbor is Sweden, which is somewhat reminiscent of Denmark, for example things like architecture and social behavior. Both countries are very proud of their traditions and highly valued for keeping in touch with old traditions.

Family conjunction is one of the valuable things that the Danes and Swedes value. But they like to keep it for special events that happen all year long. These could be family weekends or holidays where they have time to spend some time together. Because the Danes do a lot of work, and in fact it is a big part of daily life in Denmark, in order to continue a busy life.

Danish Lifestyle and Architecture

When I visited Denmark, I saw many interesting things and many old cities around the country with a touch of romance. What I noticed most were the beautiful houses in the small towns around the island. This is really easy to notice and anyone who has ever been to Denmark would know what I mean. I traveled from Germany and rode a motorcycle to a small coastal town in the northeast of the small island of Fyn. When I came to Kerteminde, I felt so elevated, because I could really feel the feeling of being surrounded by water. The beach was crossing the coastal beach from one coast to the other. For me, it was a summer vacation or rather a vacation, so I went for a swim in the beautiful ocean every day.

My first time in bed and breakfast

I slept on a bed and breakfast in Samlingsstuens, located in the heart of a small town. The dwelling was inside a protected building, in a courtyard called "Andreasens købmandsgaard". There were lovely rooms here with beautiful flowers on the side table next to my bed, and a nice clean room, which I greatly appreciated.

My time schedule told me to stay in Kerteminde for only a few days, but I actually stayed there for 5 days. I'm a bit of a nature guy too, so most of the time I was wondering about the beaches and the great forests that were around.

Vikings of Denmark

I also went to the Viking Museum, which was about 10 km away from Samlingsstuen. The modern Vikings meet. I learned many things about Danish history and culture that day, and even tasted real Viking food.

Basically, this place was a really well proven place to go with family, the kids had a lot of things to learn and learn. But even going there alone was really happy.

In the end

I want to share a word I have come across many times during my stay in Denmark. It's called "hygge" and is a unique description for example of a family relationship or perhaps another way of saying "chill out." The word is especially related to Denmark and describes very well how Danish people are.
