Thursday was a transit day. We collected the rental car, then took a ferry to Fredeikshavn in Denmark. It only took 3 1/2 hours to get there, then a couple of hours drive to the small village of Klim, just near Fjerritslev. We settled into our nice hotel room, then went for a short drive down to the beach - bit disappointing by Oz standards - lots of pebbles, some sand, flat surf. Had a lovely dinner at the hotel restaurant. The next day, Friday, we set off up the coast to a town ...

They have rounded Cape Horn and have ...
... but once you add Greenland & Ferra Islands (which are part of Denmark) it becomes one of the largest nations with the smallest population. Lots of windmills / wind turbines producing sustainable energy dot the landscape in a similar way to Germany. There are more motorways in Denmark and while the Nowegians love building tunnels the Danes love building bridges. They have even built a bridge to Sweden and apparently ...
