“Auf Wiedersehen” Germany and “Hej” Denmark, we’ve made it to Scandinavia...finally.
Our new home is now all kitted out and we are coming to terms with close proximity living, Copenhagen here we come.
A stroll around and it was back to the motorway and the Storebaelt Bridge, an 18km long bridge that connects East and West Denmark... and a toll that cost approx $50! it was a pretty impressive bridge though.
While we had checked into a campsite a short distance down the coast from Copenhagen getting into the city centre was super easy. The local train ran every 10 minutes and took about 25 mins.. and allowed bikes. In fact it had a dedicated carriage for bikes with a purpose built bike rack inside.
Copenhagen is a city of cyclists so it makes getting around so simple. They have their own dedicated lanes and traffic lights and vehicles have to give way!
We have been 5 months on the road now and even though we have being doing a lot of walking and a lot of cycling, we have not really done any hard cardio exercise and we were starting to feel very guilty about that. Previous we could use the excuse of not having the right clothes, but after a brief stop at Decathlon, we now have no excuse! We had to bite the bullet and getting running again... so with great pain, we set off. Our campsite was located not far from the ocean (a protected area where many yachts were moored and people would paddle). It was a lovely flat run and a great way to get back into it (although I felt like I was going to die!).
