My Danish Heritage
Saturday, December 07, 2013
Hi Spark friends! I know it's been a while, but I've been in Denmark for a while (with my sister and first cousin also) to not only see the sights, but to also visit 3 of my dad's living cousins and their families. I didn't have much access to any computer. It was great meeting everyone for the first time! And not only did we do a lot of walking around but we ate more healthy such as fresh meats and produce. Well.....okay, maybe some decadent Danish pastries and desserts here and there and truth be told.....yum! But I still managed to lose 10 pounds while over there.
Here are some of very many pictures I took:
These are some of the 270 plus pictures I took! Denmark is broken up into islands off the mainland of the Jutland Peninsula; we stayed at the summer home of a family member on Zealand Island a few blocks from the North Sea in a town called Liseleje and also stayed in Roskilde near the Roskilde Fjord. Then a few days before returning, we visited the City of Copenhagen. Fun, fun, fun!! Oh! before I forget! Besides walking, driving, and the public transit, one of the main modes of transits among the Danes is cycling! There are specific bike paths that are between the sidewalks and roadways. We didn't get the chance to rent bikes this go-round, but next time we visit, that will be the first on my list!
