As some of you who follow me on Instagram, you already know that we went for a week-long road trippin in Jutland, Denmark. I was super excited for this trip mostly because I wanted to see more of this country. My first-time road tripping was back in 2014 when Axel used to work in a small town in Sweden. We would drive for hours on the highway, and the funny thing is, I would fall asleep now and then. Who else falls asleep when travelling?😀
It was after this trip that I fell in love with packing my bags, jump in the car and let the road take me somewhere far away. There is so much to see, and the one thing I like most is discovering something new. Usually, when we are on the road, we like to play some country music. This time though, we did not play as much music as we normally do neither did I fall asleep. I wanted to allow myself to be more aware of all the surroundings. To be able to create deep memories of all the places we saw and visited.
We started our trip on the west coast and drove all the way to the German border. The landscape in this part of Denmark consists of dunes, unlike the North which is flat. Along the way, we visited different cities that are rich in history. Axel loved Rudbøl, a small village situated in the Southern part Jutland close one of the Danish and Germany borders. Nature here was insanely beautiful. One of the locals told us that Rudbøl is very famous of the Black Sun. Meaning that the sun gets covered by many birds that are moving from one place to another during September. Would love to go back someday and experience the Black Sun myself.
My favourite stop was at Silkeborg. I have visited this city before on a short visit. Although we did not get to see the whole town, I believe that Silkeborg is full of great outdoor events. We had lunch and later hired a canoe. It was my first-time experience and in my opinion, a good exercise for the arms.😀 We rounded our trip at a Rose Park where we enjoyed a walk and the smell of roses.
I hope you enjoy these pictures and looking forward to talking to you super soon.
Thank you for reading this post❤️.
