So our last 2 weeks of the trip and one thing we wanted to do together was walk up to Pulpit Rock. It’s graded as a hard 2 km hike up, a round trip of 4 hours. Bernie knew it was going to be a challenge for her so we got there early with a packed lunch so we could take our time. Luckily for Bernie it was a cloudy day and quite overcast in contrast to the blazing hot days we have had of late. Well we made it and got the obligatory photo( you have to queue up for) and we were back down by 1.30. Heading south in Norway we stopped at a lighthouse called Lista Fyr for the night. There were a whole series of bells around the site that we could not find any information on and also some interesting WW2 German defence systems. It was here Jeffrey encountered the llamas. Our last night in Norway saw us at its most southerly point Lindesnes Fyr. We went up to the lighthouse that evening as it was beautifully clear, which was lucky because the next morning a mist had rolled in. It was well worth visiting both
museum and lighthouse though and then it was time to head for the ferry and say goodbye to Norway. Our first day in Denmark saw us at another lighthouse called Rubjerg Knude. This one is buried in the sand dunes and they think that it won’t be long before the sea claims it. We visited the award winning Moesgård museum, the star attraction is the 2000 year old Grauballe Man found in 1952. The museum brings various eras from Stone Age to Vikings to life through well designed and striking displays. Phil and I really did not do it justice we will be back! Ribe , Legoland and a Viking moot finished off our Scandinavian adventures in style. We now have the long drive home!
Both retired this year and decided to embark on a long trip in our camper van Mack to Scandinavia. We intended to go for three months but Bernie having pneumonia put matters on hold. Now the plan has scaled back and we hope to travel around Denmark, Norway and Sweden. We will have to save Finland for another time.... full info
