Travel Blogs from Ålborg
Since my last blog, Ive left Holland, been through Germany
and am now on the North (ish) coast of Denmark heading towards the ferry port
to get to Norway.
On my way through Germany I had a very brief, spur of the
moment stop in Hamburg. It was never my intention to stop in Hamburg, but when
