Lingering in Langeland

Wednesday and Thursday

Langeland, off Funen.  Planned a quick look and stayed two days

In the morning of Wednesday – we crossed a beautiful viaduct from Jutland into Lageland – we motored sedately down through Rudkoping.  Popped into the Tourist Information and a very enthusiastic lady recommended bike rides and walks.  Our quick look turned into two days.  We drove to Tranakaer Castle – nice walk Round the parkland – castle not open as the Count and family are in residence – I fancy being a Count myself – Mrs C is our Accounting Officer – Countess K (retired) 😄. We then bicycled around the area and picnic lunch – cheese and biscuits – soup for the Countess… 😍

Back to Rudkobling for our overnight stay – gin and tonic for K – minor Martini for moi… 👍. K used the word amazing quite a few times during the gining – sorry, evening. Sitting on a bench conveniently placed for us by the Harbour Authorities, we contemplated our Romany lifestyle – not half bad, eh ?  💑.

On Thursday we rode around the bottom of Langeland, having bought some very fresh and inexpensive fish from the docks.  Cliffs, wind and ponies.  Did not go into the Cold War Museum, but evidence of this is everywhere.  Not surprising given Denmark’s geographic location.

We like Lagenland a lot…

Being quite early, we headed across the Storebaelt bridge to NW Zealand – at stunning price of £36 as we are over 3.5 tons.  Ended up over night and all this morning, chilling in a car park where they are just building a new area visitor centre – Neolithic mounds everywhere across Denmark.
