It’s early morning and the corn fields seem foggy through the window while the sun rises smoothly. I am sitting right now on a couch at a farm house in Skive, Denmark. Up north where the fjords hug the land and the skies get lost within the clouds. I am thinking and feeling this is a perfect inspiration spot, perfect for getting lost in my words and letting them flow…just like I’m doing now.
I happen to be with some amazing family who took us in, after taking my sister for a 1-year exchange program. And here we are! Visiting her and enjoying the times with these great people, learning valuable lessons of life, beyond from my understanding and expectations…lessons so rich that in short time, they are sticking inside me forever, strong and tight.
I’ve never had a big idea about Denmark or it’s culture, until recently. I must say is a very well organized country, with open mind and open arms for everyone. No judgements, no tedious requirements, nothing, just easy-going rhythm here so far, both in personal experience and also by feedback from locals. Denmark appears to be also a green country, making it’s way through eco-technologies and growing conscience among citizens in many ways. Admirable and hope they keep doing it for long and strong. Society is a very developed one here, in many senses. There’s a total average life style for everyone, hard or almost impossible to find poorness or homeless people. Quite an example to most countries. Definitely a long process within time but totally possible…as you can get to admire right here. Impressive to me.
I can see right now throughout the window into a rainy gray day, a cow farm where I will be happily milking tomorrow after so many years without doing it! (as I grew at a milk-cow farm too). I am looking forward to bring back some memories, from my mind to my tastebuds and into my heart. This place is gaining a value I never thought it would give me. It is special already.
We are having the opportunity right now to travel across the country by car (courtesy of Car Rentals UK), which I find now there’s no better way to do this in Denmark! Probably also in other Nordic countries and Scotland as well I believe. Public transportations are great but expensive in inimaginable ways, so you might rather use your travel expenses in some car traveling due to price and comfort (Denmark has no friendly weather so car is also the best idea, even more when you are wet and cold from walking at an outstanding but windy rainy beach. THEN you will be grateful for having the car and heating system right there afterwards!)
We are on the road, moving ahead into more Danish destinations. More updates later but for now, a few images through our lens so you can enjoy, get thirsty for Denmark and maybe start wanting to plan a trip over to this part of the world!
Cheers! Best said in danish: “Skål!” (sounding like this: “Skoal”)
