Colleen’s Trip to Europe – August 4th, 2009

We have managed to get a summer house on the west coast of Denmark.  We are in the resort town of Blavand.  The cottage is a 3 bedroom home and is about 2 blocks from the beach.  We are going down to the beach today since the weather is good.  We are heading home on Friday so this will be my last blog.   The vacation has been great but we are looking  forward to getting home 🙂

Colleen’s Trip to Europe – July 30th, 2009

We are really enjoying our trip here in Denmark.  The people are very friendly and everywhere you go you will find people speak English.  Denmark is mostly surrounded by water so it gives them some of the greatest beaches.

 On Sunday, we went to the West coast to a resort area called Blavand.  The beach there has powder white sand and it separates the town and summer houses.  There is plenty of shops and restaurants on the main drag into town and it is really busy right now as the factories in Denmark have closed for 3 weeks vacation.

On Monday, we went to Legoland.  Denmark is the home of  Lego and the park is right across from the Lego plant.  That is probably why the store in Legoland has all the new Lego not available yet in Canada.  The cost to get it was about 50.00.  All the rides are based on Lego characters and everything in the park is made of Lego bricks.  It is really something to see.

On Tuesday, we went to the island of Romo which is attached by a causeway.  Romo has the widest beach in all of Europe and you can drive your cars onto the beach as it would be too far to walk especially if the tide is out.  We stayed there for 2 days and we are now back in Kolding.   We are trying to arrange a summer house in Blavand for a couple of days so I will let you know what happens there.

Colleen’s Trip to Europe – July 24th

Well we made it to Denmark.  It seems funny to be travelling in Europe, all the borders seem as one as we did not have to show our passport or clear any customs.  It is kind of like flying from Saskatoon to Calgary.

When we checked in at the airport in Paris, the counter only opened two hours prior since Denmark is not considered an International Destination, so there is really no need to get there early.

When we arrived in Copenhagen, we had to change our money from Euros to Kroners since they still have their own currency.  Jorgen’s Mom met us at the airport and we picked up our car today.  We are heading off to the small island of Romo on Monday for a couple of days.  It will be nice to spend a couple of down days after the hectic pace of Paris.

We are going to see Harry Potter tonight.  We stopped by the theatre to buy our tickets and you preselect your seats so you can come any time and still get a good seat.  The best part is there is beer sold right in with the snacks.  Now that’s my type of movie 🙂 Talk to you soon.
