Windy500- Viking Museum and Odense

Last night we all went out in Copenhagen, after setting up the camp Spooky rounded almost all of us up and we went for a bus into town. The camp site was fairly close to town so it did not take long. In town we all went to the Tivoli gardens, i

Half of the team wanted to walk to the statue of the Mermaid and the other half went back to the camp. Having already been disappointed with the size of the mermaid statue last time I came to Copenhagen I elected to catch the bus back to the camp site.

Also I mentioned fireworks last night, apologies, as it was not a fireworks display but a light show and we missed it because we were on the bus!

We left Copenhagen first thing in the morning to head towards Flensburg on the German border.  The sat-nav wanted us to use motorways all the way but I wanted to see a Viking museum in Roskilde I knew about.  We arrived at Roskilde 45 mins before the museum opened so stopped for a drink and Danish pastries first ( it’s the law you know…….when in Denmark and all that)

The museum has a living history area where the tools and skills used by the Vikings are re-created.  In the museum there are also the remains of 5 Viking ships that were recovered from nearby in the 1960’s.

After the Viking museum we headed South West towards Odense and had to pass over another impressive road bridges.

As we approached the planned camp site there was news that it was full so we diverted to an alternative location.  We have just had bad news from Spooky who had broken down in Copenhagen and it’s been diagnosed as a broken valve!  Hopefully he will catch us up in Holland tomorrow.
