... city really isn’t very much time
at all! Still, I made the most of the mini adventure in Hamburg! Maybe one day
Ill do a city break there!
My plan for the next day was to visit Sylt, an exclusive
German island near the Danish border, which came highly recommended by a
friend. Checking the maps, it looked like there was a spit of land connecting
Sylt with its neighbouring Danish island, Romo. So I made sure the sat nav ...
Tonight we are staying outside of Aalborg. We travelled to Skagen which is located at the northern tip of the Jutland peninsula. It is a major shipping centre and fishing town. During the summer it is also a tourist town. Very quaint houses - likely many are vacation rentals.

I got a more positive view of people in general I would say. We were met with more hospitality then I had ever hoped for on this trip.

It was very funny to try to get rides with words I hardly knew what they meant. I don't regret that we didn't go to Venice, ...
