For the vast majority of the trip, we were in places we’d never been. Only Costa Rica, Australia, New Zealand, Bali and Switzerland had some of us been to before. So it was great to finish our cycle tour at Gyldenlund, my mom’s aunt Marianne and uncle Boerge’s farm in northern Sealand, Denmark. My mom has been there at least 20 times (her father was Marianne’s brother), and it was Kaia’s and my fifth time there. It’s a beautiful farm, with lots of animals and vegetable gardens, and borders one of Denmark’s biggest forests, and with a train station really close by (1 hr to Copenhagen).
When we arrived on our bikes, we met Marianne and Boerge, and my Mormor (Danish way to say “mother’s mother”), who we hadn’t seen since we left in September. We spent a week on the farm, and had lots of fun. I’ll keep this blog post short, so here are photos of some of the highlights.
Being at Gyldenlund was really fun, and was a great change of pace from finding our way in new, unknown places, what we’d been doing for the past 9 and a half months. It was great to see Marianne and Boerge again, and Bruno all grown up (he was a puppy the last time we visited), and to see my favourite country in Europe, Denmark.
