Denmark was Lovely

The view in Denmark is very beautiful. The air is fresh and you are surrounded by small villages, farms and fields.

Midsummer is Scandinavia`s most popular festival right along with christmas. A tradition of the summer solstice, midsummer is the longest day of the year ( June 21) Many had decorated their courtyards beautifully. With flags, flowers and garlands.

Among Danes it is also Sankt Hans aften, which they celebrate on the eve of June 23rd. On that day, Danes sing their traditional "we love our land" and burn straw witches on bonfires. This is also done in memory of the church`s witchburning of the 16th and 17th century. 

The sound of peaceful ocean waves...
Denmark has a 7,500 km long coastline with beautiful white sand beaches. It is not difficult to find a favorite place.  


Where we stayed - It was quiet and luscious green.
 Many of the small farm houses situated in Lejre are built in the French neoclassical style. Many of the buildings also have a characteristic thatched roof. I think it looks like a house you would be happy to live in all your life. Totally charming.

A Jazzy night.
This group of older men have been playing together for more than 35 years. They had so much fun, and so did we. We were the last to leave..

This flower market was a treat. I am always very impressed by the creativity the Danish people put into their Displays. Love this !

Aaah, the fields !

Last evening spent together with our friends in their new built conservatory. 
Thank you so much Nils and Solveig for another delightful holiday in your charming village. We both feel the same, relaxed, inspired and utterly happy.  

Wherever you are I hope you all have a wonderful July !

wow for et cadeau til vores lille land, tak på landets vegne Aina! Jeg har svært ved at forestille mig at noget kan være smukkere end dit land med fjelde og fjorde, men fordi noget er smukt kan noget andet jo også være det. Der går ikke noget fra et smukt land fordi et andet land også er smukt, sådan er det jo nok!

Klem Helle
